Hillary Clinton Calls Fox News’ Megyn Kelly ‘Superb Journalist’

Screen Shot 2016-04-05 at 3.28.35 PMMegawatt Fox News star Megyn Kelly has been on the receiving end of a flurry of attacks by a presidential candidate this election cycle, but on Tuesday, she got some kind words from the top of the presidential heap. While she’s not Donald Trump‘s cup of tea, Kelly got as glowing an endorsement as you can get from Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton, who visited The View and gave this assessment of the Kelly File host:

Hillary Clinton: His attitude about and what he has said about so many women – the way he treated Megyn Kelly, who is a superb journalist, right?

(applause)

Joy Behar: Yes, she is.

Hillary Clinton: I just don’t understand what he thinks is the role of somebody running for president.

That a Democratic candidate would offer such high praise for any journalist, let alone a Fox News personality, is a testament to Kelly’s credentials, which have been on brilliant display this election.
