NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – Megyn Kelly is suing Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump for harassment after that feisty exchange on live television in Thursday night’s GOP presidential debate.
The FOX News anchor, in one of the highlights of the evening, asked Trump to explain his often-disparaging comments about women.
“You’ve called women ‘fat pigs, dogs, slobs, disgusting animals,'” she said.
“Only Rosie O’Donnell,” Trump said, cutting Kelly’s question off mid-sentence.
“And honestly Megyn, if you don’t like it, I’m sorry,” he added. “I’ve been very nice to you, although I could probably maybe not be, based on the way you have treated me. ”
Kelly took that as a threat and said that she feared for her safety.
In a complaint filed in New York City’s superior court, Kelly sought for a restraining order to prevent Trump from coming within 50 feet of wherever is she. She is also asking the court to ban the real estate mogul from using his Twitter account to further insult and criticize her.
In a series of late-night tweets, Trump blasted Kelly for singling him out during the debate.
Meanwhile, Rosie O’Donnel is also reportedly considering filing a separate complaint against Trump for defamation of character.
Feminist attorney Gloria Allred has confirmed that she will be representing both Kelly and O’Donnel in the lawsuits on a pro-bono basis. “It’s not about the money, she said, it’s about standing up for women.”
