Fox News host Megyn Kelly may have taken a shot at her colleague Sean Hannity following Monday night’s debate when she subtly pointed out that his interview with Donald Trump was not being done by a “journalist.”
During the debate at Hofstra University, Trump had cited Hannity as the single person who could vouch for his opposition to the Iraq war. And then after leaving the stage, the Republican candidate made Hannity his first stop in the debate’s Spin Room.
Because Fox News normally follows debates with at least half an hour of coverage from their news team, Kelly may have been a little unhappy about tossing to Hannity.
“We’ve got Trump speaking to our own Sean Hannity,” she explained. “We’ll see if he speaks to the journalists in this room after that interview.”
After the Hannity segment, which appeared to be more of an orchestrated defense of Trump’s debate performance than an interview, Kelly once again picked up the coverage.
She noted that Trump had made a practice of showing up in the Spin Room during Republican Party primary debates, and added, “But [that’s] something that I don’t think we’ve ever seen from a general election presidential debate.”

Japan wants to dump Fukushima radioactive water into ocean
Japan's top government spokesman slapped down the environment minister on Tuesday after he said there was "no other option" but to release radioactive water from the crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant into the ocean.
"It is not true that we have decided on the disposal method," Chief Cabinet Minister Yoshihide Suga told reporters after Environment Minister Yoshiaki Harada's comments earlier in the day.
The operator, Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO), is storing more than one million tonnes of contaminated water in tanks at the site of Fukushima Daiichi Plant that was wrecked by the 2011 earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown.
Here’s one big reason why Trump is having a white-hot meltdown over the Fed not dropping interest rates
President Donald Trump has a personal conflict-of-interest that may be impacting his decisions in his public feud with Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell.
"President Trump stands to save millions of dollars annually in interest on outstanding loans on his hotels and resorts if the Federal Reserve lowers rates as he has been demanding, according to public filings and financial experts," The Washington Post reported Saturday.
Trump approves of North Korea missile tests: ‘I have no problem’ because they’re just ‘short-range missiles’
On Thursday, in conversation with reporters, President Donald Trump said that he had 'no problem' with North Korea's new round of missile tests.
"Short-range missiles, we never made an agreement on that," said Trump. "I have no problem, we'll see what happens, but these are short-range missiles. They're very standard."
The thought that short-range missiles would still be capable of hitting our allies in the region, like South Korea and Japan, does not seem to have occurred to him.
