Here’s something we’d never thought we’d hear: Donald Trump apologizing! The GOP presidential candidate praised the Fox News anchor for scheduling their interview. Click through for all the details!
Did pigs just fly? Because we think we just heard a gracious compliment out of Donald Trump‘s mouth! The presumptive republican presidential nominee sat down for a not-so explosive interview with Megyn Kelly on May 17, and said that he only has the greatest respect for her! Wow!
The major assumption waiting for Trump’s one-on-one with Megyn was that it was going to be an insane, anger-filled event. While the interview was definitely a can’t-miss event, it was more shocking for the lack of any ire whatsoever! Trump and Megyn got down to the nitty gritty of their infamous feud, which they spoke about for the first time during this sit-down.
He’s not going after Megyn anymore for asking him about his sexist rhetoric during the first republican debate in August 2015. The act of setting up this interview gave him a whole new perspective, and admiration of Megyn! :I have great respect for you after you came to me to have this interview. It’s something I wouldn’t have done,” Trump told her. “And I don’t mean that as my positive…I mean that as a negative for me. I really respect that.”
Megyn joked that the Trump Tower security guards were still recovering from the shock of seeing her walk into the building for their initial meeting! When asked if he had any regrets about his behavior during his presidential run — toward Megyn or anyone else — Trump’s answer was surprising: “
“I could have done things differently, I could have used different language [about you]. But if I were soft, if I were presidential, but if I had not fought back the way I fought back, I wouldn’t have been so successful.” At least he’s honest!
