Juanita Broaddrick, who accused Bill Clinton of rape in 1999 and has been actively speaking out during Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign this year, called Kelly “ugly as hell on the inside” in a tweet early Wednesday.
 
And Paula Jones, who sued Bill Clinton for sexual assault in 1994, said Kelly doesn’t stand by all women and “hates Trump.” Jones also called Kelly a “nasty heifer” in a tweet that was later deleted. 
 
The contentious interview Tuesday night quickly went viral on social media, with "Megyn Kelly" surging to the No. 2 trending topic on Twitter and video of the segment being shown on most of the morning shows Wednesday. 
 
Kelly's contract with Fox News expires in July of 2017. 
 
Kelly earned widespread praise for her questioning of Trump’s past derogatory comments about women during the first GOP presidential primary debate in August 2015. 
 
She was criticized by many media observers after a May interview with Trump at Trump Tower on Fox, with critics calling her questions too soft.
