MSNBC anchor Ari Melber surprised a guest on Monday by playing the Shark Week episode that former adult film performer Stormy Daniels has repeatedly recounted during interviews.

Vox Media, senior producer Liz Plank joined Melber to analyze the blockbuster 60 Minutes interview of Daniels.

“There’s another part of this interview that is consistent with Stormy Daniels’ past statements,” Melber noted. “She said Donald Trump is obsessed with sharks.”

Melber then read a quote from Daniels’ In Touch Weekly interview.

“He was like, ‘I donate to all these charities and I would never donate to any charity that helps sharks. I hope all the sharks die.’ He was like riveted. He was like obsessed,” Daniels reportedly claimed.

Melber then played a clip of Stormy Daniels telling her Shark Week story during a 60 Minutes interview with Anderson Cooper, which aired Sunday evening.

“This is what we believe to be the episode,” Melber proudly declared.

“How do you, how do you know this?” an astonished Plank wondered.

“What does Donald Trump’s fear of sharks tell us about Donald Trump?” Plank wondered.

“I ask you, my guest on this TV show,” Melber replied.

“What do sharks represent?” Melber asked. “Something he can’t control?”

“Lawyers?” Plank suggested.

“Lawyers are sharks,” Melber laughed “you had the answer.”

Among those opposed was Attorney General William P. Barr, who called the prosecution 'righteous' in an interview Wednesday with ABC News, the official said, adding that those pushing Trump to show loyalty to Stone included Rep.
