Megyn Kelly Addresses Donald Trump Controversy: 'I'll Continue Doing My Job Without Fear or Favor ... It Is Time Now to Move Forward'
From 'The Kelly File,' Monday, 8/10/15:
MEGYN KELLY, FOX NEWS ANCHOR: Welcome to the KELLY FILE, everyone. I'm Megyn Kelly. We'll get to Missouri in a moment.
But first, I just got back from a weekend at the beach with my husband and my three kids. Did anything happen in the news while I was gone? Did I miss anything? You may have heard there was a dust up involving yours truly and presidential contender Donald Trump. Mr. Trump was upset with a question I asked him at the debate last week about his electability. And specifically comments he has made in the past about women. A few words on that.
Apparently, Mr. Trump thought the question I asked was unfair and felt I was attacking him. I felt he was asked a tough but fair question. We agreed to disagree. Mr. Trump did interviews over the week that attacked me personally. I've decided not to respond. Mr. Trump is an interesting man who has captured the attention of the electorate. That's why he is leading in the polls. Trump who is the front-runner will not apologize and I certainly will not apologize for doing good journalism. So, I'll continue doing my job without fear or favor. And Mr. Trump, I expect, will continue with what has been a successful campaign thus far. This is a tough business and it is time now to move forward. And now, let's get back to the news.
