Megyn Kelly denies Trump got Fox News debate question in advance

Published

on

Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly’s denied Thursday night that her memoir revealed Donald Trump had managed to get at least one of her debate questions ahead of time.

“For the record, my book ‘Settle for More’ does not suggest Trump had any debate Qs in advance, nor do I believe that he did,” she wrote on Twitter.

According ot the New York Times, Kelly suggested that the President-Elect had received Kelly’s first question in the first Republican primary debate ahead of the debate.

She said that Trump had called Fox executives to complain that he had heard her first question “was a very pointed question directed at him.”

Trump had complained incessantly that former DNC chair Donna Brazile provided Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton with a debate question, alleging that such an action would have rigged the election in her favor.

Kelly’s first question for Trump in that debate focused on his treatment of women, something that would follow his campaign all the way to the November 2016 election.

She asked him, “You’ve called women you don’t like ‘fat pigs,’ ‘dogs,’ ‘slobs,’ and ‘disgusting animals.’ Does that sound to you like the temperament of a man we should elect as president?”

Kelly wrote, “Folks were starting to worry about Trump — his level of agitation did not match the circumstances. Yes, it was his first debate. But this was bizarre behavior, especially for a man who wanted the nuclear codes.”

She implied that Trump may have received the information on the first debate question from a friend of his at Fox News — the former CEO Roger Ailes who was asked to resign over the summer amid sexual harassment allegations, including from Kelly.

Per the Times:

She doesn’t speculate where the leak came from. (She reports. You decide.) But that’s another unambiguous takeaway from this book: Parts of Fox — or at the very least, Roger Ailes, the network’s chairman until July, when he was given the boot after several allegations of sexual harassment were made against him — seemed to be nakedly colluding with the Republican presidential nominee.

Trump was not happy with Kelly’s question. The world watched as that situation unfolded. At the time, Trump reportedly threatened Kelly, telling her, “I almost unleashed my beautiful Twitter account against you and I still may.”

Trump did unleash his Twitter on her, calling her derogatory names in a number of tweets. 

As Trump prepares to take office in January, he continues to lay the foundation for his war on the media, and Kelly with her revelations will likely remain in the crosshairs, as does the industry as a whole.

When protestors took to the street in response to his win, he tweeted Thursday night, “Just had a very open and successful presidential election. Now professional protesters, incited by the media, are protesting. Very unfair!”
