A video clip of Megyn Kelly’s upcoming interview with Donald Trump has been released. And in just 27 seconds, Trump told at least one whopper and one not-so-veiled threat against Kelly.
In the clip, Kelly asked Trump if his vitriol toward her was real or strategy.
First, the whopper:
TRUMP: I’m a real person. I don’t say, “Oh, gee, I’m angry tonight but tomorrow you’re my best friend.”
Sadly, lies are so commonplace from Trump, they’re almost not worth mentioning. But with his very next remarks, Trump made it clear he wouldn’t hesitate to start attacking Kelly again, should the mood strike him.
TRUMP: See, I do, I do have a theory that, you know, when somebody does it – and this could happen again with us. I mean it could be. Even doing this particular interview. I have great respect for you that you were able to call me and say let’s get together and let’s talk. To me, I would not have done that.
If I were Kelly, I would not consider the hatchet buried between them. From the look on her face, I think she got the message.
Kelly called this clip “the most interesting part” of her Trump interview on today’s Live with Kelly and Michael. Which is an odd thing to do in a teaser. My theory: she wanted to highlight it, knowing that people will tune in for the rest of it regardless.
Trump is nothing if not unpredictable but if I had to lay a bet, I’d say he starts in on Kelly again before the election is over.
