Megyn Kelly to Interview Trump for First Time Since Infamous Debate Throwdown

Sirius XM host Megyn Kelly will interview former President Donald Trump for the first time since their infamous showdown during the 2016 presidential election, she announced Thursday.

Kelly is set to conduct the in-person interview with the former president Sept. 14 on “The Megyn Kelly Show” for the first time in seven years. She has interviewed several Republican primary candidates including Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley and Democratic candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

“Next week, I’ll be interviewing former President Donald Trump. It will be my first interview with the former president in seven years and there’s so much to get to. I’m really looking forward to this,” Kelly said. “It’s gonna be great. It’s gonna be spicy and it’s gonna be tough, but it’s gonna be good and hopefully we’re both gonna enjoy it. I think you’re all gonna enjoy it too. We’re gonna have a lot of time for a variety of topics in person, sitting down with him in person.”

Kelly and Trump have had a tumultuous relationship since her question about his past treatment of women during a 2015 debate, which she co-moderated along with Fox News’ Bret Baier and former “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace.

“You’ve called women you don’t like ‘fat pigs,’ ‘dogs,’ ‘slobs’ and ‘disgusting animals,’” Kelly said during the debate.

“Only Rosie O’Donnell,” Trump responded.

“No, it wasn’t,” Kelly said. “Your Twitter account, for the record, it was well beyond Rosie O’Donnell. Your Twitter account has many disparaging comments about women’s looks. You once told a contestant on “Celebrity Apprentice” it would be a pretty picture to see her on her knees. Does that sound to you like the temperament of a man we should elect as president?”

Following the debate, Trump told Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly in January 2016 that he has “zero respect” for Kelly and accused Fox News of mistreating him.

    Don’t think PRESIDENT TRUMP should be exposed to Megan Kelly. Maybe a phone interview.

    It may be her first interview in 7 years, but it is NOT her first interview since the debate. I believe it was an hour special she did with him. As to the unfairness of her debate question… I never got it. It was a huge topic being discussed everywhere, it HAD to be addressed. Being the woman, she was stuck with the question, because the men were too pussy to do it themselves. She never realoy wanted to ask it herselfI also thought it was a softball question that he could have answered several ways. That he couldn’t answer it, really knocked him down in my estimation, when rating candidates in the primary. Yes, I voted for him, but it is stuff like this that also drove women voters from him and cost him his re-election. We should at least be able to be honest with ourselves. Instead of acting like she did something wrong. The reaction was completely out of proportion to her genuine question, and the threats on her and her children’s lives was unacceptable. Imagine if your family was in danger, because of the targeted comments from someone? It’s amazing that she let it go years ago, I don’t know if I could have myself. And Trump said it was behind him around the same time as her interview, so if he can do it… Why can’t his devoted followers?
