Fox News host Megyn Kelly’s contentious interview with Donald Trump supporter Newt Gingrich, during which she challenged the former House Speaker at every turn and even referenced Trump as a “sexual predator,” drew the ire of conservative radio host Mark Levin, and the former #NeverTrump stalwart let Kelly have it on his Wednesday radio show.
Levin, who now plans to vote for Trump on election day, ripped Fox News and the “liberals” who are “ruining that network,” specifically Rupert Murdoch’s two sons, James and Lachlan.
Levin then turned his attention to Kelly, saying, “Their top star’s Megyn Kelly. Megyn Kelly is out of control. Megyn Kelly pretends to represent women.”
(By “pretend,” Levin was referring to a 2010 interview with Howard Stern during which Kelly made sexual references to both her and her husband’s body parts.)
Levin then reminded listeners of the “fuse” set when Kelly asked Trump the provocative “Does that sound to you like a man who should become president” question at the first Republican primary debate.
“She was so obsessed with Rosie O’Donnell,” Levin said, “and Donald Trump and things that were said back and forth, she set the stage for what became month after month of vicious personal, nasty attacks, and she’s doing it again.”
On Kelly’s interview with Gingrich, the one where Gingrich gave as good as he got by accusing Kelly of being “fascinated with sex,” Levin said, “There was no news. There was regurgitation — 14 days before an election … She is auditioning, in my opinion, for a bigger forum … whether it’s ‘Good Morning America’ or the ‘Today Show’ or even CNN — and a huge payday. Fine. But please don’t pretend you’re a journalist. And if this is the future of Fox, then Fox will be dead. Because this kind of National Enquirer stuff dressed up as journalism doesn’t fly.”
