Megyn Kelly’s first interview with Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump since their heated exchange at the first GOP debate will air tonight on Fox. You can watch the back and forth that started it all above.
During that debate on August 6, 2015, Kelly, who was serving as a moderator, hammered Trump on his previous comments about women.
“One of the things people love about you, is you speak your mind, and you don’t use a politician’s filter,” Kelly said to Trump. “However that is not without its downsides, in particular when it comes to women. You’ve called women you don’t like ‘pigs,’ ‘dogs,’ ‘slobs,’ and ‘disgusting animals.'”
Trump then interrupted saying, “only Rosie O’Donnell,” which received loud cheers from the crowd, despite Kelly saying “for the record, it was well beyond Rosie O’Donnell.”
Kelly then asked Trump if that sounded like the “temperament of a man we should elect as president?”
Trump responded, “I think the big problem this country has is being politically correct. I’ve been challenged by so many people and I don’t frankly have time for total political correctness. And to be honest with you, this country doesn’t have time either. … And frankly what I say, and often times it’s fun, it’s kidding, we have a good time, what I say, is what I say.”
He then addressed Kelly, saying, “And honestly Megyn, if you don’t like it, I’m sorry. I’ve been very nice to you although I could probably maybe not be based on the way you have treated me, but I wouldn’t do that.”
Trump then continued his attacks on August 7, saying he doesn’t respect her as a journalist. He then said, “You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her… wherever.”
Kelly then defended herself, saying the question about Trump’s sexist comments was not an attack.
Kelly and Trump then sat down for an interview on May 10, which will air on May 17. Here is how you can watch the interview live.
