Megyn Kelly has been in the spotlight now for several months regarding her exchanges with President-elect Donald Trump. Over the course of the election, she has been very vocal about her opinions regarding the GOP nominee and how he conducted himself with her. Kelly has gotten some incredibly notable interviews in her career and is one of the most powerful women in news today. She is ready to jump at any story presented to her, and she isn’t afraid to ask those questions that could get her hands dirty and ultimately result in some backlash.
Rumors have been floating around for some time about how things went down with Megyn Kelly and President-elect Donald Trump. The two exchanged harsh words over social media, and many believe he was borderline vulgar with her. Kelly never backed down, and now she is speaking out about the exchanges and where they stand now.
According to Radar Online, Megyn Kelly penned a tell-all book and describes in detail her relationship with Trump. While you would likely assume there was nothing positive to say about him, she surprises everyone with the words she penned about their exchanges.
Some people assumed that because Megyn Kelly is conservative and works for Fox News, she would be lenient on President-elect Donald Trump. That was not the case at all. She talks about the awkward exchanges and the veiled threats he made to her throughout his campaign.
For example, Trump was overly upset when Kelly aired a piece about his divorce from Ivana Trump and called her to discuss it. She writes about how he threatened to unleash his Twitter account on her and said that he was still considering it even after they spoke. Times were tense between Kelly and Trump, but it seems that it will all settle down now that the country has chosen to elect him into office.
The tell-all written by Megyn Kelly also depicts how much of a struggle she endured after taking on President-elect Donald Trump. According to Entertainment Weekly, Megyn Kelly received death threats for opposing Trump. In fact, his supporters were so scary with their threats, she wrote that she had to travel with heightened security. Kelly traveled to Disney and called in an extra security detail in order to ensure safety for herself and her family. It was chaotic at best, but it appears that things will be better from this point on.
There were also stories in Megyn Kelly’s tell-all that talked about gifts offered to her by President-elect Donald Trump. She graciously declined the offers because it was a conflict of interest, and she wanted her reporting and commentary to be based on what was happening and not what she was getting. Kelly did several things that upset Trump, and she knew it.
After meeting him to discuss an interview on Fox News, she gave him praise in her book. Kelly explained that there was an awkward exchange at the meeting as she was going in for a handshake and he was going in for a hug. The two discussed how things would play out, and she left confident in preparing for the interview. It was surprising to see her praise Trump even a little, especially after he unleashed such hatred for her.
Because she is a huge television personality for Fox News, several people remember her piece on the Josh Duggar scandal. Between President-elect Donald Trump and Duggar, Kelly has had a rough go at it over the last two years. She also discusses relationships, rumors, and some pretty heavy duty things in her tell-all. If anything, this election and feud with Trump helped to make Megyn Kelly a household name that even the DNC members now know.
