Megyn Kelly’s daughter Yardley may only be 5 years old, but she already has some very strong feelings about Donald Trump! In fact, Megyn revealed in a recent interview that little Yardley is actually ‘afraid’ of Trump & thought he wanted to ‘hurt her!’ But Megyn’s lowest point was when her daughter asked her what a ‘bimbo’ was. Watch the the shocking interview here!
Megyn Kelly, 45, revealed during a Nov. 15 interview with ABC News’ Good Morning America that one of the “lowest points” of her year was when her 5-year-old daughter Yardley asked her what a “bimbo” was. The Fox News host appeared on the talkshow to discuss her new memoir Settle For More, and of course the topic of President-Elect Donald Trump, 70, came up. And Megyn had shocking things to say about how her little girl feels about the soon-to-be-president!

Megyn discussed how her daughter is actually scared of Trump and how she even learned the word “bimbo” from him. During the first Republican presidential primary debate, which Megyn moderated, Yardley, who was with her mom backstage, told the journalist, “I’m afraid of Donald Trump. He wants to hurt me.” Surprised, Kelly said in her interview that she asked Yardley why she would say that. She also told her that it was not true. The young girl replied, “Well, he wants to hurt you, so he wants to hurt me too.”
“I had never revealed to her any of the things that Trump had done,” Kelly explained. “But she is five, and she hears things in this world.” And that was only one of the many challenges Kelly said she faced during the election, as Trump came after her “like a dog with a bone.” “It was a test of me as a person and a professional,” she said, noting that Trump caused “security issues in my life and the life of my family.”
But throughout it all, she’ll never forget when her daughter asked her what a “bimbo” was. “One of the lowest points was when she came home and asked me what a bimbo was,” the mom-of-three revealed. The backstory is that after Kelly asked Trump about his comments towards women during a Republican primary debate, he lashed out at the Fox News host, retweeting a tweet that called Kelly a “bimbo.”
He also published a tweet himself insisting that he would not “call Megyn Kelly a bimbo because that would not be politically correct.” SO awful. We hate that little Yardley had to hear things like that at such a young age!
Tell us, HollywoodLifers — what do you think about what Megyn had to say? Are you shocked her daughter’s scared of Trump?
