There have been many battles between Fox News highest rated talk show host Megyn Kelly and the Republican front runner Donald Trump. But Kelly seems more than happy to let bygones be bygones and have him her show anytime.
“If on Monday, Donald Trump says, ‘I want to come on your show. Would you say, ‘You’re welcome, come on. We have a spot for you?'” Charlie Rose asked during an interview slated to air on “CBS Sunday Morning,” with an excerpt broadcast Friday on “CBS This Morning.”
“Absolutely,” Kelly responded.
The host of The Kelly File does not have anything negative to say about Trump however in a preview clip from the interview, saying of the Republican front-runner; ‘Trump, if he could pull himself back in just somewhat, would be so effective.”
Kelly told Rose to be honest she and Trump really didn’t have much of a relationship before the August debate when she confronted Trump over his past remarks on women, which sparked months of battling between Fox News and the front runner with Kelly doing her best to stay out of the way. Meanwhile, Trump called her “overrated” and more recently as “sick” and “crazy.”
The network in mid-March issued a blistering statement ripping Trump’s “extreme, sick obsession” with Kelly, who has co-moderated the Fox News debates this cycle, including the August one.
Trump has shown little interest in mending the relationship, going out of his way during an interview this week to knock “another Megyn Kelly hit” when pressed about critical remarks from a guest on her show.
While, Kelly seems happy to look past the remarks made by Trump and have him on her show it is not likely to happen anytime soon. Trump like to visit Fox and Friends, The O’Reilly Factor, Hannity or frankly any other that isn’t called The Kelly File.
