Megyn Kelly stomps Giuliani for slut-shaming Stormy: Melania ‘sold her body for sexual exploitation… so come on’

Published

NBC host Megyn Kelly on Thursday called out Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani after he attempted to shame adult film star Stormy Daniels over her appearance and vocation.

While speaking at a conference in Israel, Giuliani said that he did not “respect” Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, because she is an adult film star.

“I respect women – beautiful women and women with value – but a woman who sells her body for sexual exploitation I don’t respect,” Giuliani opined. “Someone who sells his or her body for money has no good name.”

“I’m sorry I don’t respect a porn star the way I respect a career woman or a woman of substance or a woman who… isn’t going to sell her body for sexual exploitation,” he added. “I mean, she has no reputation. If you’re going to sell your body for money, you just don’t have a reputation. I may be old fashioned.”

During a segment on her Today Show program on Thursday, Kelly suggested that Giuliani and President Donald Trump were guilty of hypocrisy because First Lady Melania Trump has posed nude for money.

“The notion that he respects women of substance, ‘a woman who won’t sell her body for sexual exploitation,'” Kelly said. “So, Melania Trump is classy and gorgeous and I really admire her. But she has posed nude for GQ magazine back in 2000. And so to suggest that Trump would never respect, and that Giuliani wouldn’t respect anybody whose ever sold her body for sexual exploitation — I’m not comparing the two, posing nude is not the same as being a porn star. But, come on!”

“Being an adult film star does not make you a liar,” the NBC host added.

Published

on

In a brutal column for the Daily Beast, longtime political observer Michael Tomasky went all-in on an attack on Republican senators for turning the impeachment trial of Donald Trump into a "Stalinist show trial" where the outcome is known before it even starts.

Reflecting on the impassioned case laid out by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) over the past three days, Tomasky wondered what it would take to get through to Republicans who seem uninterested in fulfilling their constitutional duties.

‘Take her out!’ Leaked audio purportedly catches Trump demanding firing of Marie Yovanovitch

An audio recording that has been reviewed by ABC News purportedly catches President Donald Trump demanding the firing of former American ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch.

According to ABC News, the recording was made in April 2018, which was more than a year before Yovanovitch was finally ousted from her position. Additionally, ABC News reports that the recording was made by Igor Fruman, the now-indicted henchman of Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who captured the president's voice during a private dinner where he also met with Fruman's co-conspirator, Lev Parnas.

Republicans’ phony impeachment outrage can’t conceal their deep-seated anxiety

Published

on

When you watch a trial, whether you're on a jury yourself or on the couch in front of the TV, the prosecution's presentation always seems airtight — until you see the defense. So I don't want to say at this stage that the House managers in Donald Trump's Senate impeachment trial have made their case. But seriously, it's hard to see how the president's team can plausibly explain away this behavior. Their only choice will be to admit that all the evidence is true and tell the American people that it was perfect.
