After Stormy Daniels described a threat she says she received from someone apparently on behalf of Donald Trump, Megyn Kelly chimed in with her own experience and drew parallels between the two.
“They both claim to have been threatened by people on behalf of President Trump,” The New York Post’s Page Six reports. “During ’60 Minutes’ on Sunday, Daniels — who claims to have had an affair with Trump in 2006 — said that after she tried to go public with the story, ‘A guy walked up on me and said to me, “Leave Trump alone. Forget the story.” And then he leaned around and looked at my daughter and said, “That’s a beautiful little girl. It’d be a shame if something happened to her mom.” And then he was gone.’”
Kelly began tweeting about her own experiences after the interview. You can see the main tweet below, and click here to see the rest of her Twitter posts on the subject.
She included excerpts from her 2016 book, “Settle for More,” where she describes being approached by Corey Lewandowski, Trump’s campaign manager at the time.
In addition to the excerpt in the tweet below, The Post quotes Kelly saying in the book: “The tone was unmistakable.” She added: “I was far from the only woman or reporter” he threatened, The Post reports.
