“I felt like a human being who had been dropped into a shark tank.”
Fox News host Megyn Kelly says that’s what it felt like when Donald Trump was attacking her in interviews and in tweetstorms.
Kelly attracted Trump’s ire during the first GOP primary debate in August 2015, when she asked him about his track record of misogynistic comments. Trump criticized her for months afterward, sometimes in highly personal ways, which triggered threats to her safety.
“We had security guards the whole year,” Kelly told Anderson Cooper in an interview on CNN on Wednesday night. “I mean, the threat level just got so high that it was impossible not to take that seriously.”
Kelly wrote about the experience in a new book, “Settle for More,” which came out on Tuesday. She is on a book tour this week, one week after Trump won the presidential election.
In the interview, Kelly recounted how one of Trump’s lawyers, Michael Cohen, retweeted a Twitter user sa ying “we can gut her” at a time of heightened threats.

Monday began on a down note for the stock market, as the Dow Jones Industrials fell back down below the 20,000 level. Major market benchmarks finished with losses of 0.6% to 0.8%, and some market commentators attributed the declines to nervousness about the Trump administration’s actions to clamp down on immigration. Others noted that the latest reading of U.S. economic growth showed a 1.9% rise in gross domestic product for the fourth quarter, finishing the year with an overall GDP increase of just 1.6%, down a full percentage point from 2015’s growth. Despite the overall sullen mood in the market, some stocks gained ground, and GoPro (NASDAQ:GPRO), Movado Group (NYSE:MOV), and IPG Photonics (NASDAQ:IPGP) were among the best performers on the day. Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so well.
