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.

China announced a robust 10.1% increase to its military budget at the opening of the country’s annual legislative session in Beijing last week, signaling that it has no intention of reversing efforts to better defend its interests in the Pacific. Meanwhile, at another major political meeting near Washington D.C. – last month’s Conservative Political Action Conference – Republican presidential hopefuls barely mentioned China or Asia at all.
Are GOP candidates for the 2016 presidential race going to make the mistake of ignoring China’s importance as a foreign policy challenge for the U.S.?
Hardly. In fact, the 2016 U.S. presidential race on the Republican side is shaping up to be one where the major candidates are likely to bring real policy gravitas, not just caricatures and jingoism, to discussions about U.S. policy toward China and Asia.
