Megyn Kelly Criticizes Trump Defamation Verdict: Alleges Political Motivations

In the latest episode of “The Megyn Kelly Show” podcast on Tuesday, January 30, journalist Megyn Kelly delved into the recent defamation verdict against former President Donald Trump, characterizing the jubilation among Trump critics as “stomach-turning.” Kelly asserted that the legal proceedings were politically motivated, arguing that laws were altered to target Trump, and the case was driven by Democratic interests. 

Allegations of Law Manipulation

Kelly began by suggesting that when Trump is the subject, laws can be changed to pursue legal action against him. She alleged that the nearly $100 million judgment on defamation against Trump, linked to E. Jean Carroll’s accusations, was an absurd verdict. Kelly questioned the perceived champion status assigned to Carroll, asserting that the law in New York was modified to enable the lawsuit against Trump, orchestrated by a Democrat with an apparent anti-Trump agenda.

Political Agenda Behind the Lawsuit

Kelly went on to claim that the lawsuit was funded and championed by prominent Democrats who saw it as a political opportunity. She asserted that the Democrats are celebrating the outcome as a political victory, framing the case as a deliberate political hit against Trump. Kelly argued that the media’s portrayal of Carroll as a brave individual standing up for herself was misleading, characterizing it as an “astroturf movement” aiming to harm someone rising in prominence within Republican circles.

 Stormy Daniels Hush Money Comparison

In a different segment of the podcast, Kelly drew parallels between the Carroll case and the upcoming legal proceedings involving Stormy Daniels’ hush money payment. She expressed skepticism about Trump’s chances of winning, suggesting that the jury in the Stormy Daniels case would be similar to the one involved in the Carroll defamation verdict. Kelly implied that the legal challenges Trump faces are politically motivated and predicted a challenging legal battle for the former president.

Background on Trump’s Legal Troubles

The article provides context on Trump’s legal woes, mentioning that a grand jury had indicted him in March 2023 on 34 criminal counts related to falsifying business documents. The charges were linked to hush money paid to adult film star Stormy Daniels to allegedly keep her from disclosing their affair, which allegedly took place in 2006, a year after Trump married Melania Trump.
