“It’s not like I’m worried someone’s actually going to come shoot me down,” she said.  “But I do worry someone’s going to try to hurt me in the presence of my children.”

According to Kelly, the problem is the hate Trump generates among his die-hard followers.

“It’s not so much what he writes or says; it’s how he gins up anger among so many,” she said. “So it manifests in my life in several ways.”

And anyone in the media who does not bow down to Trump or kiss his ring, so to speak, is castigated as a “whore” or worse — especially if they happen to be female.

Here’s her interview with Rose. Her response to the question about threats can be seen at the 6:47 mark:

Her husband, Doug Brunt, also spoke out and said that while Trump hasn’t gotten a rise out of her with his insults and taunts, the GOP front-runner has gotten a rise out of him.

“It is frustrating,” he said. “I think one of the thing’s that’s been most frustrating for Donald is that he has not been able to get a rise out of her even though he repeatedly tries to do so. For me, he gets a rise out of me, for sure.”
