Megyn Kelly is said to have been offered $20 million to stay at Fox News but there’s no decision on that yet. She’s busy touting her new book in which she rips into Roger Ailes and his alleged sexual harassment.
In her book Settle For More, the Fox anchor also rehashes the debate which set up the contentious relationship with Donald Trump. She harshly insults Donald Trump, calling him bizarre.
“Folks were starting to worry about Trump — his level of agitation did not match the circumstances,” she recalls. “Yes, it was his first debate. But this was bizarre behavior, especially for a man who wanted the nuclear codes.”
Actually, she looked a little bizarre when she realized he won the presidency.
In interviews, Kelly shared what she calls “one of the untold stories of the 2016 campaign” in regard to Trump. “I was not the only journalist to whom Trump offered gifts clearly meant to shape coverage,” she writes. “Many reporters have told me that Trump worked hard to offer them something fabulous — from hotel rooms to rides on his 757.”
After the show, Kelly added in a tweet that Trump did not have any debate questions in advance despite rumors to the contrary.
There were reports that she insinuated in the book that she was poisoned but she corrected the record.
Kelly wrote that she became violently ill on the day of the debate after a driver taking her to the convention center insisted that she get some coffee. After she drank the beverage, she said she immediately started vomiting. People took that to mean she was suggesting she was poisoned. She tweeted on Friday, “Also for the record, I believe the reason I got sick the day of the first debate was I contracted a stomach virus. Just as Rand Paul did.”
She not only included nasty anecdotes about Trump and Ailes in her book, possibly true or not, but she felt the need to go on the talk circuit repeating her claims as she hawked her book at a time when Trump is hoping to unite the nation, Hillary voters are upset and worried, and Soros and Obama goons are burning, looting and beating people. Seems like bad timing which is why I called this a ‘nasty book’.
In a strange gesture, after ripping him apart and making sure he was hated, Kelly said, while guest co-hosting Live! With Kelly on Wednesday, “keep an open mind” about Trump’s time in office. “Love him or hate him, he’s the next President of our country,” she said.
She concluded on Live! With Kelly, “I have no conflict and no bias against Donald Trump.”
Think I’ll pass on the book.
