Megyn Kelly began The Kelly File Thursday evening by noting that Donald Trump is losing ground in the general election polls. She also added that Hillary Clinton's numbers have headed south on honesty and on her emails.
"For the better part of the last two weeks, the Trump campaign has been hounded by questions about the fraud case about his now defunct Trump University and by Mr. Trump's own comments that the judge has ruled against him because he is of Mexican descent."
"This comes on the same day that President Obama officially put his support behind Hillary Clinton, despite the fact that his administration is investigating her emails and whether she should be criminally charged," Kelly continued.
Analyst Chris Stirewalt then appeared and said that Trump actually dropped 11 points with Independents, which is certainly problematic. He said that Trump really needs to win back the Independents if he wants to win the election. He said that surviving in the general election is completely different than surviving in the primaries.
Kelly added that even though things are looking more down for Trump, 60 percent of Americans still feel that Hillary Clinton lied about her email server and 57 percent polled believe that Clinton put the nation at risk because of her emails. Kelly hinted that it was unprofessional for Obama to release an endorsement video despite the fact his administration is allegedly investigating her."This is all a carefully choreographed play. It's well done -- it starts with honoring Sanders by having him meet with the president...Then, you get the official endorsement that had been recorded on Tuesday...Then, you get Bernie Sanders coming out [in support of Clinton]," Charles Krauthhammer told Megyn Kelly in regards to the Democrat's plan to fight against Trump.
Many conservative sources have spoken out against Trump's alleged racism. Even the National Review believes Trump made a huge mistake.
"But while many of Trump's statements around the issue of immigration have been egregious, I have found his latest comments about Judge Gonzalo Curiel to be the most troubling, because they represent a dangerous assault on the very essence of what it means to be American," writes columnist Alexander Benard.
The article goes on to condemn Trump for going against the idea of American exceptionalism where in the United States, more than anywhere else in the world, anybody can become a full member of their adopted country. The fact that Judge Gonzalo Curiel is actually more "American" than most people is what is really angering Megyn Kelly, Fox News, and other news sources.
Megyn Kelly believes that Trump's supporters will definitely move on from this big gaffe and that he could easily rebound. Let us know what you think of Megyn Kelly's assessment in the comments section.
