Adult film star Stormy Daniels’s attorney, Michael Avenatti, appeared on “Megyn Kelly Today” to discuss his client’s much-hyped “60 Minutes” interview in which the actress dished about her alleged 2006 affair with the president.
In particular, Avenatti spoke of what was omitted from the interview. He says that during the course of the interview, there was a clip in which Daniels describes Trump’s genitalia — but the clip was cut and never aired. Daniels’s lawyer opines that CBS made that decision because “they’re a conservative network.”
Megyn Kelly asked Avenatti, “So you say there’s more to her story than what we’ve already heard, like what?”
Michael Avenatti added, “When she sat for that interview, it actually lasted over two hours in length, the actual interview… and then the portion that the American public saw was only 14 or 16 minutes of actual interview time on ‘60 Minutes.’”
Kelly insisted that that 60 Minutes would have aired any portion of the interview they deemed newsworthy.
“Well, ‘60 Minutes’ and CBS, you know, they’re a conservative network,” Avenatti replied. “There’s a lot of information that was said during that interview that did not make it into the final ‘60 Minutes.’”
Megyn Kelly, who is still considered conservative despite her departure from Fox News asked, “Conservative, like highbrow, you mean, you don’t mean politically conservative?”
“No. I mean that they play it close to the vest. For instance, she can describe the president’s genitalia in great detail. That did not make it,” Avenatti clarified.
“We don’t need to hear that,” Kelly said as she covered her eyes. “My eyes! Don’t need to hear that.”
I’ve got to agree with Megyn Kelly on that one.
