The feud between Fox News and Donald Trump escalated this week when the GOP presidential frontrunner announced he would no longer be appearing at Thursday night’s debate due to the fact that Megyn Kelly is scheduled to moderate it.
Seeking solace from Trump’s repeated attacks against her, Kelly commiserated with somebody that nobody was expecting: loudmouth liberal nitwit Michael Moore.
Many accused Kelly of flirting with Moore during the appearance. The Washington Post described what happened:
[A]fter Kelly introduced Moore’s “Where to Invade Next?” — in which, as Kelly put it in an opening that probably made many Fox viewers’ skin crawl, “Moore travels through Europe to highlight what he believes to be America’s shortfalls” — Moore didn’t want to talk about himself. For the man who hounded General Motors chief executive Roger Smith and vilified President George W. Bush, it was all about Kelly and her bold stand against Trump.
“What does this feel like for you?” Moore said. “Because you don’t want to be the story — you’re a journalist.”
Kelly’s rejoinder: “I get to ask the questions here!”
“I feel bad for you,” Moore said. He then wondered why Trump would deprive himself of Kelly’s company: “What’s he afraid of? I’m sitting here. I don’t feel any fear.”
“You shouldn’t,” Kelly said. “I’m a pussycat.”
“You can ask Donald,” Moore said, volunteering to play chaperone for the candidate. “Donald — come down. Come sit beside me. I’ll hold your hand. She’s fine.”
Kelly: “Stop that!”
It only got worse from there…
“I was thinking I was maybe going to have to, like, take you out to dinner afterwards,” Moore said. “We could talk. You could emote … get it out. I’m here for you.”
“I had no idea there was this side to you,” Kelly said.
Maybe this all was a joke. Maybe it wasn’t. But then, Moore got real about Kelly and Trump.
“In all seriousness, let me say this,” Moore said. “… You’ve done something that Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, Rubio, Cruz — none of them have been able to do. Which is to, essentially, frighten him.”
“Would you move on from the Trump situation?” Kelly said. But, at least on some laptop screens, it appeared she may have blushed.
Clearly, Trump has been right about Kelly all along. SHARE this story if you think this woman should be DROPPED from the debate tomorrow night!
