Megyn Kelly: We Had To Explain To Trump Why It Would Be Bad If I Were Killed

Megyn Kelly is continuing the press tour for her book 'Settle for More' and made a rather startling revelation with CNN's Anderson Cooper.

Kelly says not only did her public feud with Donald Trump fuel death threats against her from the billionaire's supporters, the President-Elect's lawyer was actually encouraging those calls.

That is until Fox News executives explained why it would be bad for their campaign if Kelly was killed.

"Michael Cohen, who is Trump's top lawyer and executive vice president with the Trump Organization had retweeted 'let's gut her,' about me," Kelly told Cooper. "At a time when the threat level was very high, which he knew."

"And Bill Shine, an executive vice president of Fox, called him up to say, 'You got to stop this. We understand you are angry but she's got three kids and is walking around New York.'"

"And he didn't much care," Kelly explained. "And what Bill Shine said to Michael Cohen was, 'Let me put it to you in terms you can understand: If Megyn Kelly gets killed it is not going help your candidate.'"

Cohen is widely known as Trump's "pit bull."

"It means that if somebody does something Mr. Trump doesn't like, I do everything in my power to resolve it to Mr. Trump's benefit," Cohen once said in an interview. "If you do something wrong, I'm going to come at you, grab you by the neck and I'm not going to let you go until I'm finished."
