On Thursday evening, Megyn Kelly and Donald Trump finally faced off again after several months of bashing each other. According to the New York Times, they were able to avoid hostilities. They told each other how well they looked, right before Kelly kicked off with a strong interrogation of Trump, where she asked him about his stance on immigration, a Trump University lawsuit, and why he keeps changing his stance on Syrian refugees.
On The Kelly File on Friday evening, Megyn almost dedicated her complete show to bashing Donald Trump. At the beginning of her show, Kelly, in a very passive-aggressive manner, said that it was remarkable seeing Trump reverse on some issues because he usually doesn't admit when he was wrong. She had A.B. Stoddard from The Hill speak about Trump.
"It's really remarkable...just imagine how he reverses on two things, fewer than 24 hours later, especially things he's dug in on like 'Generals will just listen to my orders even if it defies American law.'"Stoddard went on to note that she thinks people can't be swayed when they see that Trump flip-flops on positions so much.
"Look, we're incredibly disappointed. I think it's a big political mistake...there's an expectation that if you want that Reagan mantle, if you want to call yourself a conservative candidate, you'll be here"Schlapp went on to indicate that Trump wanted to dictate to CPAC the rules for his appearance and since he didn't get his way, he skipped the conference. He indicated that although Trump's presence will be missed, the conference will do well without him.
Next, Megyn Kelly had a specific segment on waterboarding, which is a form of torture in which water is poured over a cloth covering the face, while blocking breathing passages. It gives the victim the sensation of drowning. She played a video in which Trump talked about using the process to deter terrorism.
"They then came to me and said, 'What do you think of waterboarding?' and I said it's fine. If they wanted me to go stronger, I would go stronger too," Donald Trump said.
After the video, Megyn Kelly said that this type of torture is illegal. She added that after a backlash from the military and intelligence community, Mr. Trump reversed himself on his long-held position. She also had military experts speak out against him.
Megyn Kelly's show might as well be re-titled The Anti-Trump Hour. There are some people who respect her for it, but others who think Kelly is being unprofessional. Do you think Megyn Kelly is being unprofessional with her constant Trump bashing? Let us know in the comments section.
