“Top Chef” host Padma Lakshmi revealed in a New York Times op-ed that she was raped at 16 and was molested by a relative of her stepfather at age 7. She says she came forward because of the allegations made against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and because President Trump has questioned why one of Kavanaugh’s accusers didn’t tell anyone years ago. NBC News senior national correspondent Kate Snow reports for TODAY.
