Megyn Kelly: Pro-Trump TV Hosts Colluded With Him Beforehand To Appear Tough

Megyn Kelly admitted that TV hosts colluded with Trump before he went on the air for an interview to make themselves appear tough and to give Trump a hand.

Responding to Howard Kurtz' questions about her new book, Megyn Kelly said that TV hosts who supported Trump would collude with Donald beforehand to help give themselves credibility by making believe they were tough on him and called it "play acting."

On Fox News' Media Buzz, Kurtz asked, "Certain TV hosts were in the tank for Donald Trump, you say, to the point where 'they would arrange with Trump in advance to ask him certain critical questions or do certain hits on him so they would appear to have some credibility."

Kelly: "Yeah."

Kurtz: "Are you suggesting they were play acting?

Kelly: "Yes. It was acting."

Kurtz: "It was in more than one network, but you can't tell us who?".

Kelly: "No, because these were off the record conversations that I was privy to that I'm not at liberty to reveal. I'm not allowed to name the names, but trust me. This did happen and its been confirmed to me by more than one television executive."

I seem to remember that conservatives were outraged when they read unconfirmed leaked documents that alleged a Democratic operative gave a debate question to Hillary.

Kelly is verifying that staged interviews were given to Trump by TV anchors.

What does that remind you of?

Not to be forgotten from this interview is that somebody tipped off Trump about Megyn's first question during the debate she was moderating.

Too bad there were no leaked documents about the Trump campaign. I'm sure it's an oversight by Wikileaks. I wonder what we would have found?

Kelly said, "What I write is the day before the debate, he [Trump] had called one of our Fox News executives and said he had heard my first question for him was going to be a very pointed question."

It appears that Trump got far more help from TV hosts and sympathetic TV executives than Clinton ever did.

It's fair to call it collusion.

But, you know, emails!!!!
