Two strong TV personalities can be a lot to deal with, especially if they’re warring. Well, now comes news that Donald Trump believes any ill-will between himself and Megyn Kelly is a thing of the past.
According to The Blaze:
Donald Trump boasted on Friday night about how Fox News Channel host Megyn Kelly phoned him last month to request a meeting with him at Trump Tower.
Trump, speaking to a large crowd in Oregon, said he had “a lot of respect” for what Kelly did.
“She called me. She said I’d like to see you,” Trump told the audience. “Now, if I was wrong, she wouldn’t have done that. And I respect her for doing it.”
“She called me. She said I’d like to see you. She came to Trump Tower. I didn’t go to Fox. And we didn’t meet on neutral territory,” the billionaire continued. “Megyn called me, I really do, I have a lot of respect for her. She called me, we sat down, we talked. Everything is fine. I mean, everything is fine.”
Trump seized upon the opportunity to claim the media had misinterpreted a remark he made last summer on CNN. The comment Trump made in August suggested that Kelly pressed him at the first GOP debate because she was menstruating. Trump has repeatedly insisted otherwise, and he did so before the Eugene crowd.
It seems Trump is in the power position as every network covering Trump sees it’s ratings go up astronomically. And Megyn Kelly could embrace her pride or let bygones be bygones and embrace Mr. Trump. She will clearly see a bump in her ratings and greater success.
One thing this campaign has taught us is that Mr. Trump is a master of the media. He has received tens of billions of free publicity. Overtime he opens his mouth, the media cover it extensively.
