On Friday night’s Kelly Files, host Megyn Kelly let Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick get his say on his opposition President Obama’s order to public schools that they must respect trans students’ right to use the bathroom. Then she shut him down hard — including cutting him off at the end of the segment.
As the skeptical Fox host looked on, Patrick rambled that allowing the change in bathroom policies could lead to the end of public education, with more parents pulling their kids out of school.
When Patrick reached the point of talking about men dressing up as women to assault little girls in the bathroom, Kelly had clearly had enough.
“A lot of sex offenders are men who molest men, little boys,” She pointed out.”Why do they need to sneak into the girls room?”
Patrick immediately changed the subject, citing his 8-year-old granddaughter and how he doesn’t want a man sharing a bathroom with her, only to have Kelly cut him off again.
“But what if a man looks like a woman and she would never notice him?” she asked.
“Megyn, you’re missing the–,” Patrick parried only to have Kelly shut him down with, “No, I don’t think I’m missing anything.”

Trump ‘is hemorrhaging support’ and is flailing badly to win it back: reporter
President Donald Trump is trailing Democratic rival Joe Biden in the polls, and one veteran journalist said that he seems clueless about how to stop the bleeding.
Journalist Alex Wagner, the host of Showtime's "The Circus," told CNN on Wednesday that President Donald Trump's flailing attacks on Dr. Anthony Fauci and "60 Minutes'" Lesley Stahl are not part of some grand strategy to stage a comeback in the 2020 presidential election.
"The idea that President Trump has somehow hatched a multi-pronged plan to make a closing argument in the last remaining days of the election is a fallacy," she said. "He is hemorrhaging support among suburban women and seniors, and what is he doing? Taking on a fight with the elder statesmen of the most venerable news brand in America. She is an older woman at precisely the time he needs to be getting women and seniors."
Progressives unite for last-ditch effort to delay Amy Coney Barrett vote — by impeaching Bill Barr
Progressive activists are urging House Democrats to essentially kill two birds with one stone by impeaching Attorney General Bill Barr -- which would delay the confirmation vote for Judge Amy Coney Barrett.
"Attorney General Barr has acted to subvert the laws that he, as our nation's chief federal law enforcement official, is duty-bound to uphold," more than 20 progressive groups signed in a joint letter.
"Attorney General Barr has made a career out of undermining our democracy and it is pellucidly clear that he has been ramping up efforts to undermine the upcoming elections and invalidate the votes of millions of Americans," the groups wrote.
Sam Elliott narrated a powerful new Joe Biden ad — and it aired during Game 1 of the World Series
Actor Sam Elliott narrated a new ad for Joe Biden that aired during Game 1 of the World Series.
"There is only America," Elliott said. "No Democratic rivers, no Republican mountains, just this great land and all that's possible on it -- with a fresh start."
"Cures we can find, futures we can shape, work to reward, dignity to protect," Elliott continues, as the Star Spangled Banner plays quietly on a piano in the background.
"There is so much we can do if we choose to take on problems and not each other," the narrator continues. "And choose a president who brings out our best."
