Megyn Kelly was seen incognito entering Trump Towers today, as nothing slips by New Yorkers who immediately took to the social media sites to report their sighting. The posts on social media indicated Kelly was incognito and that she was met by a member of Trump’s team in the lobby of Trump Towers and escorted upstairs.
The eyewitnesses report that Kelly slipped into Trump Towers around 11 a.m., or at least she thought she slipped in, but apparently she was immediately recognized. So what is Kelly up to? She seems to enjoy the sparring sessions she has with Trump, which are polarized and constantly spark controversy? Is she looking to bury the hatchet and was this a tail between your legs approach?
While it is not known what exactly transpired between Trump and Kelly, it was confirmed by Fox News this afternoon that Megyn Kelly did indeed meet with Donald Trump at Trump Towers.
According to The Blaze on April 13, they were given confirmation that Megyn Kelly met with Donald Trump at Trump Towers on Wednesday. A Fox spokesperson said in a statement:
“FOX News Chairman & CEO Roger Ailes has spoken to Donald Trump a few times over the past three months about appearing on a FOX Broadcasting special with Megyn Kelly airing on May 23. Kelly requested a meeting with Mr. Trump, which took place at Trump Tower this morning. The results of that meeting will be revealed on tonight’s Kelly File at 9PM/ET. Kelly has acknowledged in recent interviews that Trump is a fascinating person to cover and has electrified the Republican base.”
This just can’t get any stranger between these two, and many would say Trump is being a very big man for opening the door to Kelly and inviting her into his home. This is especially true after Kelly appearing to have Trump in her scope for the last few months like prey.
While Megyn Kelly was a well-known Fox reporter, she was just as well-known as the rest of the Fox lineup until she started this sparring saga with Trump. Some might say it was actually Donald Trump who put Kelly over the top as far as ratings go.
Bizpacreview today reminds their readers how Megyn Kelly recently said in a sit-down interview with CBS News that her infamous feud with Trump was “a dark moment.” Apparently she is on her way to mend some bridges via a visit to Trump Towers today?
The problem between Trump and Kelly started at the first Republican debate hosted by Fox, where Kelly was a mediator. Her questions to the other candidates were worded very differently than when Trump’s turn came along. She shot out seemingly mean accusations then asked him to comment on those accusations.
The relationship went downhill from there with Trump refusing to show up at another Fox debate with Kelly at the helm and the back and forth went on and on. Could it be she wants to make nice now that she’s tapped into a show like “The View” which she will host on Fox starting in May? It is a show for interviews with high-profile people and let’s face it, you are not going to find anyone considered more “high profile” than Trump is today.
Donald Trump is gracious and for sure Kelly will walk away from this meeting once again on Trump’s favorites list. While a kind man, Trump is far from stupid, and while he might forgive Kelly, he won’t forget. For sure he won’t let her have that chance again to bite at him, like she did while he was her captive audience at the debate.
