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.
