Megyn Kelly, Krauthammer Praise Trump for ‘New York Values’ Smackdown

megyn krautFrequent Donald Trump critics Megyn Kelly and Charles Krauthammer gave Trump a great deal of credit tonight for smacking down Ted Cruz on the “New York values” issue.

Cruz has attempted to go after Trump by exploiting the cultural divide and saying that The Donald is the living embodiment of New York values. Trump fired back tonight by saying that what happened on 9/11 was a pretty strong showing of New York values too, and so what Cruz said was very “insulting.”

Krauthammer said Trump was uncharacteristically “sober and serious,” while Kelly declared, “Trump nailed that answer.”

The icing on the cake, she continued, would have been if Trump said the bravery of New York firefighters and police officers on 9/11 is what New York values are all about.

Krauthammer agreed it was “extremely effective.” Kelly understood what Cruz was trying to do, but said “you gotta be careful” in making an attack like that.
