It’s the TV moment we’ve all been waiting for: Megyn Kelly confronting Donald Trump for all those months and months of his nasty, vicious attacks against her.
Kelly told Trump if he thinks that reporters should be “nice” to him, he doesn’t exactly understand how this whole thing is supposed to work. “It’s not a cocktail party,” she said.
She pressed him on his regrets before getting to the specifics of his attacks on her. Kelly asked, “Have you given any thought… to the power that your messaging has on the lives of the people you target and on the millions of people who take their cue from you?”
Without getting personal, she confronted Trump about the kind of crap people on the receiving end of his attacks get. Trump, who implored Kelly to recognize his humanity, didn’t seem to reciprocate that much and said he is just a man “fighting for survival.”
Kelly persisted and asked him if he understands the responsibility he has to change his tone. Trump said he does.
She also brought up the fact that he’s used the word “bimbo” about her. Trump shrugged it off and told Kelly she’s clearly heard worse.
Watch the whole exchange above, via Fox Broadcasting.
UPDATE: Donald Trump took to Twitter to react to the broadcast.
Well, that is it. Well done Megyn — and they all lived happily ever after! Now let us all see how "THE MOVEMENT" does in Oregon tonight!
