Megyn Kelly was atop of the world when she was at Fox News.
But her stock rapidly dropped when liberal NBC signed her to a multi-year contract and she failed to bring her following with her.
But now Kelly might be trying to redeem herself.
You already know the story about Megyn Kelly’s unprecedented fall from grace on NBC—Sunday Nights w/ Megyn Kelly was a short-lived disaster and it didn’t get much better when they moved her to the Today Show.
Kelly claimed the move to the Today Show was because she didn’t want to be in politics anymore, but many didn’t care either way and the show still lacks decent ratings.
Stormy Daniels is that attention-seeking pornography star who alleged she had an affair with President Trump back in 2006 in Lake Tahoe, Nevada.
She’s been talking openly about the affair and recently discussed it with Anderson Cooper on 60 Minutes.
Daniels’ lawyer, Michael Avenatti, has also been making the rounds on the news circuits discussing his client in a braggadocios way, and recently appeared on the Today Show to defend Daniels case.
But Kelly shut him—and Stormy Daniels—down in an epic way.
The Daily Caller reports:
“Megyn Kelly ripped apart Michael Avenatti during an interview on NBC Wednesday morning, sharply questioning the key components of his lawsuit for Stormy Daniels.
One of Avenatti’s claims is that the hush agreement Daniels signed about her alleged affair with the president is invalid because Trump never signed it.
However, Kelly pointed out that the agreement only required either Trump or his lawyer, Michael Cohen, to sign.
“[Cohen] could bind himself to that $130,000 and she signed it and she cashed the check,” Kelly argued.
Kelly also noted that the agreement required Daniels to turn over any proof she had of the alleged affair, yet Avenatti recently teased a DVD on his Twitter account, implying that Daniels had broken that term of the agreement.
“Well, so you’re saying they didn’t live up to their obligations, and now there’s a question about whether she did,” Kelly explained.
Avenatti and Kelly then got into a debate over whether or not Daniels should return the $130,000 since she detailed the alleged affair on “60 Minutes.”
“It’s not fair for her to keep the $130,000 while she’s already been on ’60 Minutes,’ telling about the whole affair, right?” Kelly said.
“Well, I think what’s not fair is for her to constantly be called a liar…intimidated, and not being able to provide an opportunity to tell her story,” Avenatti responded.
Kelly incredulously responded, “Not having an opportunity to tell her story? 22 million people watched the ’60 Minutes’ interview!”
The hits on Avenatti just kept coming, as the audience burst into laughter when Avenatti claimed that his client is a “principled woman.”
“She wanted the money,” Kelly asserted. “Why didn’t she just talk 11 days before the election? Come on. She wanted the dough.”
Ultimately, Kelly put the nail in Avenatti’s coffin when she detailed how he can go about returning the $130,000 to Cohen.
“It’s very simple: you take out the piece of paper, you write $130,000, and then you mail it,” she said as her audience cheered.”
You have to ask yourself whether this is a ploy by Megyn Kelly to get back in the good graces of her former following or possibly even President Trump’s camp.
Would you forgive her or is it too little, too late?
