With analysis like this, it’s no wonder NBC is losing money hand over fist with their star acquisition, Megyn Kelly. (RELATED: Report: NBC Wasted $69 Million on Megyn Kelly).
Kelly drew a nearly direct line comparison between First Lady Melania Trump and porn star Stormy Daniels when discussing comments about the latter’s character and credibility.
Kelly’s panel discussion began with a video clip of Rudy Giuliani in Israel criticizing Daniels for her career choices and how it affects her believability.
“I don’t respect a porn star the way I respect a career woman or a woman of substance or a woman who has great respect for herself as a woman and as a person and isn’t going to sell her body for sexual exploitation,” Giuliani said in the clip.
Kelly reacted, “The notion that, you know, he respects women of substance, a woman who won’t sell her body for sexual exploitation.”
Then she launched into a false equivalency.
“So Melania Trump is classy and gorgeous, and I really admire her, but she has posed nude for GQ magazine back in 2000,” Kelly said. “And so, to suggest that Trump would never respect and that Giuliani wouldn’t respect anybody who’s ever sold her body for sexual exploitation, I mean …”
Kelly caught herself, saying she wasn’t drawing a comparison between the two, despite clearly drawing a comparison between the two.
“Now, I’m not comparing the two, posing nude is not the same as being a porn star – but come on. Right? Come on,” she said.
Interesting that she would go after the First Lady in this fashion, considering one week ago Kelly retweeted an article titled, “Leave. Melania. Alone. Please.”
“Well worth the read and consideration,” she wrote.

Kelly went on to defend Daniels’ character against Giuliani’s assertions.
“Being an adult film star does not make you a liar. Doesn’t make you a liar,” she said.
Yea, but it does suggest you’re willing to do anything for money, including the fabrication of stories about President Trump.
It should also be noted that while the NBC star thinks to pose as a model is ‘exploiting one’s body for money,’ her own career took off when she was featured in coed publications across the nation after posing seductively for a provocative photo shoot for “The Hollywood Reporter.”
