Donald Trump Is Right About Megyn Kelly

NationalInterest.org, April 6, 2016

–By Ying Ma

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has repeatedly said that Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly is overrated and treated him unfairly at the first GOP presidential debate last August. Yet with the exception of Trump’s most die-hard supporters, few on the right agree. This is a sign of Trump’s problems with women (73 percent of them currently have an unfavorable view of him), but it is also a symptom of the GOP’s wussiness to ask tough questions about a popular female anchor, as well as of its failure to challenge the insidiousness of the Left’s prevailing narrative about women.

At issue is conservatism’s decades-old battle against identity politics, in which hostility has been declared toward the grievance industry that gins up phony allegations of racial, ethnic or gender injustice.

On the Fox News Channel, Kelly has exhibited a penchant for kissing up to liberal women, fawning over their feminist agenda, berating conservative men and behaving unprofessionally toward guests. No prominent conservative has ever dared to question the perception that Kelly is an exemplary anchor, or to observe that she spends far too much time peddling a softer, kinder version of feminist dogma.

Trump is the only major national figure on the right who has challenged Kelly’s status as a demigod at Fox News. By declaring unabashedly that Kelly is not very good, Trump has—unwittingly—offered conservatives an opportunity to reflect on the grave disservice that a star on the only major conservative television network often does to conservatism.

  1. Hi Ying I just ordered your book today from Amazon. I saw your interview with Megan Kelly and she did not give you a good interview. I was so impressed with the letter you wrote to Fox and wish I had printed it because it is no longer on Fox. My name is Cynthia W. Miller and my email is evesgardenandbaskets@gmail.com. I had sent and email to Mr. Trump about you and then saw Megan’s interview, and I wanted Mr Trump to read the letter but suppose she must have taken it down before I got back to it. If you would like me to forward to Mr. Trump please copy me and I will send it to him.

    I am excited to get your book and you are going to do great things.

    Thank you for your time,
    Cynthia W. Miller
