Megyn Kelly literally just dropped a major bombshell about President-elect Donald Trump as her contract with Fox News is expiring.
While discussing her new book Settle for More, she released this one major fact that calls Trump and his campaign’s credibility completely into question.
She says that Trump conspired with certain conservative reporters in advance of their show, prepping him on certain questions that were designed to be a hit on him, so he could counter them in a very strong way. She says the purpose of this was to make it appear that there was an air of credibility in their show.
“(Pro-Trump TV hosts) would arrange with Trump in advance to ask him certain critical questions or do certain hits on him so they would appear to have some credibility.”
Her Fox colleague then asked if she means they were “play-acting.” Kelly responded, “Yes. It was acting.”
Trump has said repeatedly on the campaign trail that the media is “dishonest” and all they do is “lie.” Well, this new information from Kelly, also means that Trump was lying about it, too.
Maybe Trump should have mentioned that to his adoring audience when calling out the mainstream media’s criticisms of him. Or, maybe, Trump just doesn’t like criticism. Now that he will be president, he better get used to it.
If Trump agrees to give an interview, you can bet that he’s doing everything he can before the interview to make sure that it paints him in a favorable light. But, this is just taking things too far.
