It is pretty much established that Megyn Kelly is not a fan of Donald Trump. Mrs. Kelly continued her passive-aggressiveness towards Mrs. Trump on her show Tuesday night. A YouTube clip shows her introducing a segment about Trump and Palin.
“Breaking tonight, a moment with the potential to change the Republican race for the White House — or not,” she sarcastically said.
After she indicated that Donald Trump and Ted Cruz were very close in polls regarding the Iowa primaries, Kelly said that Palin blasted everybody from President Obama to the so-called Republican establishment. She sarcastically described Palin’s monologue as “containing her greatest hits.”
“So that was fun,” Kelly laughed before introducing political analyst Brit Hume.
Mr. Hume, much to Kelly’s dismay, claimed that Palin’s endorsement could help Trump because it helps solidify his position as a conservative. Kelly asked Hume if he things she thinks Sarah Palin has the same influence she used to.
“No, I don’t, because of the passage of time and the fact she did not continue to hold office and has been out of public’s view…she was on Fox News, but that’s faded as well,” Hume answered.
Megyn Kelly was more impartial towards the end of the segment, but her dislike of Donald Trump is still very evident. Perhaps Trump’s latest tweet is making her angry.
.@megynkelly recently said that she can’t be wooed by Trump. She is so average in every way, who the hell wants to woo her!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 11, 2016
This is in response to Kelly’s recent claim in Vanity Fair that Trump tried to “woo” her.
“In the past, he would send me press clippings about me that he would just sign ‘Donald Trump.’ And he called from time to time to compliment a segment. I didn’t know why he was doing that. And then when he announced that he was running for president, it became more clear. But I can’t be wooed. I was never going to love him, and I was never going to hate him.”
According to Rolling Stone, Kelly never really wanted a war with Donald Trump. She said that both she and Fox News felt it was bad for business to alienate Trump.
“Neither one of us wanted any sort of a war with Donald Trump. We didn’t think that benefited the channel, we didn’t think it benefited me and we don’t think it benefited Donald Trump, and I think Donald Trump would say that now.”
Kelly said she and Fox wanted to move forward and put an end to the controversy, but Trump was still very upset. Still, she concluded by saying that she and Fox didn’t want to pour any more fuel on the fire. However, Kelly has done plenty of that since the debate controversy happened. Some joke and refer to her show as the Bash Donald Trump Hour. Kelly has even received a lot of flack on Twitter.
It would be interesting to see how Megyn Kelly reacts if Donald Trump becomes president. For now, we can all patiently await Donald and Kelly’s meeting at the next Republican presidential debate.
