Megyn Kelly: Where Was Twitter When Michael Cohen ‘Gutted’ Me?

TV host Megyn Kelly used her daily morning show to air an old grievance with Twitter.

The former Fox News anchor discussed the social media platform’s decision to ban actress Rose McGowan after she used her Twitter account to call out those she believes provided cover for disgraced Hollywood producer’s Harvey Weinstein’s sexual attacks.

“And I remember Twitter rushing to enforce its rules — no,” Kelly observed. “No, I don’t.”

Kelly was referring to a wave of attacks she faced on Twitter following her questioning of Donald Trump during the first Republican presidential debate she co-hosted. Many of these attacks were led by Trump’s lawyer and confidant Michael Cohen, who called on people to “gut” Kelly.

“The point is not to re-dredge up that old dispute. It’s to say there’s an inconsistency here and who is Twitter kidding. Give me a break! Twitter, do better! Do better!” Kelly told her viewers.
