Gayle King reveals what went through her mind during R. Kelly's outburst

Adjust Comment Print

The super faux pas went down Wednesday during the Fox news show "The Five" in which Watters praised King's R. Kelly interview and described the singer as "acting like a child, throwing a tantrum and acting like he was the victim".

"Let me tell, you, Robin", Johnson said, "there's a lot more evidence that hasn't been presented yet, and does not support the version he gave".

"Hats off to @GayleKing for totally redeeming herself after the [Jussie] Smollett fiasco".

Colbert asked about Fox News' Jesse Watters mixing her up with Robin Roberts, who had interviewed Jussie Smollett.

Reacting to Gayle King's interview with Kelly in separate interviews, all three accusers said they'd seen that pattern of "rage" before.

"I mean...you're just sort of yukkin' it up at McDonald's", she scolded. "Sorry for Robin Roberts out there".

Watters' Fox News associate, Dana Perino stepped in to correct him, saying: "That was not Gayle King".

The crowd laughed and cheered, while Colbert joked, "It's good to remind them every so often".

Among those were the torturing of women's activists and a USA citizen and the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi . Trump would be expected to issue a veto, but its passage was considered a strong rebuke of the government in Riyadh.

King, 64, said she emailed Perino, 46, to thank her for correcting her colleague.

"No, I can honestly say I've never been in jail", King replied.

On the morning of March 6, CBS This Morning aired clips from their explosive 80-minute interview with R. Kelly.

Smollett, who in January claimed that he came under a racist attack by two men screaming "MAGA country", has since been charged for staging the attack.

Right as King sat down across from Colbert, she excitedly revealed that she'd just gotten a personal phone call from iconic musician Elton John moments before coming out onto stage. I'm thinking, "Does he like the fries, a Big Mac?' I just think considering the seriousness of the charge - I just wouldn't think you'd go and hang at McDonald's".

On Jimmy Kimmel Live, Kimmel couldn't get enough of the R. Kelly bombshells.

As for her safety, King made it very clear that she never even thought he would intentionally attack her but she admitted that she was indeed anxious him flailing his fists like that would lead to him accidentally hitting her.
