Fox News host Megyn Kelly returned to ‘The Tonight Show’ to tease her upcoming Fox prime time special that features her big sit-down interview with Donald Trump. Keep reading for their shocking exchange in a clip she unveiled.
Fox News host Megyn Kelly, 45, stopped by The Tonight Show May 12 to chat with Jimmy Fallon, 41, just ahead of her very first sit-down interview with Donald Trump, 69, hitting the airwaves. The journalist revealed how she convinced him to finally speak to her and stop dissing her, and what he had to say about her once the cameras were rolling.
In a teaser clip from Megyn Kelly Presents, she’s seen sitting at a corner office table with The Donald and shamed him for wishing his moderators would have played “nice” with him during the debates. He ended up paying her a compliment over her tough questioning during their first encounter, saying “In a certain way what you did might have been a favor because I felt so good…If I can get through that debate with those questions I can get through anything,” Bravo Megyn, we think he actually was trying to be decent!
Megyn revealed how she finally got Donald to stop trash tweeting her and sit down and air things out. “We did not talk for a long time then I reached out to him in April. There had been a lull in the tweets and I had wanted to go speak to him to stop, I knew if I could get face to face with him that he would stop. I don’t know what his motivations were for the whole dust-up,” she revealed.
For their first meeting, it was private between the pair. “I went by myself. I knew if I could get face to face with him, just the two of us, and I asked him if he would be alone and he agreed, that I could speak to him.”
“We didn’t address anything that had happened. I didn’t ask him about any of the tweets or things he said because I was looking to move past that…we had a normal conversation like candidate and reporter. Then we sat down for an interview, and then we do talk about what happened on the special.” Hey, way to tease us Megyn! Her surely explosive interview with the tycoon will air on May 17 at 8pm EST/PST on Fox Broadcasting
