Megyn Kelly Has A Warning For Trump On Sexual Misconduct Allegations

There has been an absolute tidal wave of scandals in regards to matters of sexual misconduct in recent times, and it doesn’t look like the storm will be subsiding anytime soon. A whole host of shocking revelations and allegations have led to some powerful men having their lives completely upended.

The current climate has undoubtedly left some men with scurrilous pasts to have some sleepless nights, and it has also called into question exactly how well some of the scandals of the past have been dealt with.

One of the biggest talking points in that regard has to do with the number of allegations that were leveled against President Donald Trump in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election. While it looked like the accusations would be enough to derail his candidacy for good, Trump persevered and shocked the world on election night.

The allegations went by the wayside from that point, but there have been a number of calls for them to be re-examined.

Three of the women that have accused Trump of inappropriate behavior have come back out into the spotlight to tell their stories once again. They held a press conference calling for the president to be investigated, and they would stop by and chat with NBC’s Megyn Kelly to draw further attention to their crusade.

As the Independent Journal Review shares, Kelly offered up a clear warning for the president afterward.

“I used to practice law for 10 years,” Kelly said while speaking with MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell. “As a practical matter, the consistency of the allegations and his own admissions on tape deliver a problematic case to him.”

Kelly recounted the story of one of Trump’s accusers, and she notes that Trump has pretty clearly implicated himself with his past comments on the matter.

“One of the women who was on my show this morning talked about how he came backstage at the Miss USA pageant — she was Miss North Carolina at the time — and lined them up like pieces of meat, she said, and looked them up and down in the privacy of the dressing room …,” Kelly explained. “Donald Trump is on tape with Howard Stern admitting he liked to do that, even though he's called this woman a liar.”

United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley has come forward to say that the accusers deserve the chance to be heard, and Kelly is seconding that notion.

“Good for her. Because this should not break down across partisan lines. Either you're for women or you're not,” Kelly continued. “Either you want women to be able to tell their stories or you don't.”

In a perfect world, this would be anything but a partisan issue. Our world remains imperfect, and the unfortunate reality is that - at least in this particular case - it will become a matter of partisan politics.

How that will turn out down the road is anyone’s guess, but the current climate does not call for sunny skies in Trump’s orbit for the foreseeable future.
