‘That’s Not True’: Fox’s Kilmeade Pushes Back After Trump Attacks Megyn Kelly Again

Donald Trump appeared on Fox & Friends this morning to once again downplay Corey Lewandowski grabbing Michelle Fields, but he got Brian Kilmeade pretty worked up when he started going after Megyn Kelly.

Last night Kelly had on former Breitbart editor Ben Shapiro. Fox & Friends played a clip of him trashing Trump and Lewandowski as liars, and Trump reacted by calling this “another Megyn Kelly hit.”

Ainsley Earhardt pointed out that was Shapiro, not Kelly. Trump said, “It was her show, and frankly, you can have Megyn Kelly, but it was her show.”

Kilmeade defended Kelly and said she does a good job, but Trump said, “Maybe she does a good job for you, she doesn’t do a good job for me. And let me tell you, if she wouldn’t report on Donald Trump, her ratings would go down in half.”

Kilmeade correctly pointed out that Kelly’s ratings are not only fine, but they were “through the roof before you ran for president.”
