I was reading comments on what people thought about the debate questions Megyn Kelly asked Trump when I saw this.......I read this and it matches my thoughts.....It resonates very, very, well with me.....There were many comments saying how people were no longer gonna watch Megyn Kelly on TV......They predict her viewing numbers will drop substantially......I can see that happening, but, I'm not sure....Anyone care to make their prediction on this?

Get with the program. Americans are tired of the dysfunctional Congress. Mitchell sitting on bills, and Beohner attacking his own fellow republicans are just angering American voters even more. They are TIRED OF THIS TOO.

It's obvious to many of us what you're saying.  The GOP can't pass border security because Obama won't enforce it.  No e-verify because Obama won't enforce it.  If you think too many qualify for welfare, pass a law already.  I know, Obama won't sign it.  Want to change Dodd-Frank?  Pass a bill.  I know I know, he won't sign it.  Does the GOP think SS needs fixing?  Yep.  Will they pass legislation?  Nope.  Did the last Administration know we needed health care reform?  Yep.  Did they try to fix it their way?  Nope.

I don't see it changing because it's a Party divided.  Some enjoy the Party not passing anything and others hate the fact nothing is being done.  I don't know how these two groups continue to survive together.

Dewey, I guess I wasn't clear enough....My post was about Megyn Kelly's secret agenda.....Many see her as a feminist women's libber and believe she exposed that agenda during the debate.....Many see her as wanting Fiorina to get the nomination.....As a result, there are quite a few who feel as though they had been fooled by her and, now, no longer care to watch her on TV anymore......I quit watching her on TV awhile back when I realized she was simply wanting to feed her ego and make a bunch of money......I was just wondering if others believe there is enough backlash against her since the debate to see her TV viewing numbers drop......

Dewey, I believe Kelly's viewing numbers will indicate how strong the dissatisfaction is with Republican voters.....Because the really dissatisfied, like myself, will steer clear of anything Kelly has anything to do with.....That's why I asked the question of others!

We elected a Republican guy to beat Democrat Mary Landrieu in the last election.....I have a problem remembering his name.......He's been out of sight - out of mind, ever since being elected......Seriously, I regret voting for him......

Tired of RINOs, Trumpettes support the most far-left candidate to ever run as a Republican.

The Democrats will thank you for handing them the '16 election with millions of new illegal immigrants and billions in new taxes, and a president who is, literally, for sale to the highest bidder.

What's bizarre is that after Obama, republicans should know the Alinsky 'divide and conquer' tactic; but here we see many of them playing right into the same trap they played into in '12, thinking once again they are sending someone a message and teaching someone a lesson. Democrats are popping champagne.

Guess what? If you're backing Trump, you aren't a republican. You aren't a conservative. You aren't "the base." Trump is none of those things. He's a democrat. He is a Saul Alinsky puppet and Clinton pulls his string, just like she is pulling yours.

I don't think it will affect her viewership much....I've never watched her much, but I just don't like her voice. I didn't think the questions were that out of hand for Trump. If he's going to be that brash, he's got to expect some of those questions in the future.

If he thought Kelly was being unfair, he won't make it through a Presidential debate with the moderators from the left.

FIB, you're correct, I'm not a Republican....Or, a Democrat......I don't need, or want, a party telling me who to vote for......

Presidents for sale?.....New taxes?.....More illegal immigrants?.......You're describing what I've been seeing from both parties for a long time......And, yes, you're right again, I'm not part of the "base" of this stuff.....

And, now, it looks like the party-line crew has adopted Megyn Kelly's feminist agenda.....

Now, along with your attack on me, do you care to answer the original question about Megyn Kelly's viewership, FIB?

I don't watch much TV, who is on or who watched what blowhard pundit. It's all a bit tawdry and I could honestly care less.

Care to tell us what part of the Clinton presidency you are ushering in that you are most looking forward to?

I have said in an earlier thread and an earlier post that I watched Kelly more than all other Fox news figures.  I will watch less of her, for what I perceive targeting and unequal fair and balanced news coverage.  That's why I watched her, she claimed impartiality.   I lost respect for Fox because I do believe Trump was ambushed by Bret and Megyn.  They have agendas, no doubt.  

I think Reince Priebus had something to do with some of those questions and maybe padded the pockets of the panel. tic

I also said what Trump said at the debate, I had no problem with.  IMO it was a lackluster performance by him and Rubio and Cruz clearly beat him on issues.   What Trump said the next day, suggesting her time of the month was a possibility, was over the top and I also lost respect for him for that comment.  Just because you have an arsenal, you don't have to use it all up now.

Are you guys kidding me?  Did you watch the rest of the debate after Trump got his question?  The first round of questions were very tough for everyone.

As for the first question, Trump runs his mouth about running as an independent, like it's some of threat to us, the sheeple, who better do as he says, or he will show us.  Screw him, he doesn't own me.  He ain't my wife, and he ain't my boss.

I don't owe Trump anything.  If he wants this nomination, he better stop acting like I owe it to him for some reason, and actually instead ask me for my support.

If Trump wants my vote, he better come up with something other than insults.  After the Red State debacle, he said that Erick Erickson is weak and pathetic.  What the heck is that?

He showed his ass the other night, and some of you can't stand it.

Megyn's numbers will be fine.

Blue - if you weren't blinded by your mancrush, you would have noticed that all of those other candidates got very hard questions as well.  The only reason it's news with Trump is because he's a candyass crybaby, and people like you buy it.

It's only bluedog and I who have defended him, so you must be talking about me, some of you.  Seems like you are taking great strides mike telling us what Trump is or is not.  We have eyes, I personally think he played his trump card way too early the day after when he doubled down on Megyn.  If he said that about Erickson, I think he's coming apart at the seams.  Still doesn't alter the fact that I [and many, many others] saw it as an ambush the night of the debate.  I want to keep Trump in to call out your RINOs.  Carly can call out the bloody pantsuit, her job as I see it and Trump can call out your McCains and Romneys and we'll get rid of the RINOs you sheeple line up behind.  I think one time you said you couldn't support Cruz?  Am I right?

I'm interested in this comment, also, Mike, if you did say it......Cruz is the closest to telling the truth about the old Republican guard caving-in and selling out, other than Trump.....If Trump doesn't get the nod, then, I'm for Cruz.....Only reason I'm for Trump is because he's the most out-spoken of the bunch......I'm hoping Cruz doesn't self-censor thinking it will help him......I don't believe he will, though.....

I didn't like Cruz way back when he spent all of his bashing fellow Republicans.

He impressed me in his announcement speech, and with his conduct since.  His performance in the debate was solid.  I have warmed up quite a bit.

KIR - I am spending so much time telling you about Trump because I am weary of bluedog's fanboyism overtaking every thread. 

I suppose I can ignore blue going forward, much like I do Dewey on some topics.

As I said, if Trump wants my support, he needs to tell me why, and quit acting like I owe it to him for some reason.

"In an initial response to Erickson, Trump's team labeled the move as "just another example of weakness through being politically correct.  For all of the people who were looking forward to Mr. Trump coming, we will miss you. Blame Erick Erickson, your weak and pathetic leader.""

fair enough

however he may have to resort to more of that calling out.  Lindsey Graham has no business in the race, another RINO like dewy's Kasich.  Graham is dangerous, he didn't go one question in the debate without firing up his "send in the infantry" bs.

Megyn's numbers may increase as Trump's unfavorable is greater than his favorable...

Fox asked tough questions to show they're balanced - and they got to do it before 24 million viewers, many of whom only know of them by the Left's smear campaign against them.

Fox and the GOP should thank Trump for drawing so many viewers. Hopefully the GOP candidates will get another large viewership for the September debate.

There are several who shouldn't be in it.  The easy ones are Graham, Pataki, and that last guy - can't even remember his name.

I'd like to see Jindal get a little more attention.

bd, all BS aside.  A corpse would be better than Landrieu.  She was a cancer.  Your new guy just may be getting his feet wet.  He doesn't have the skills Cruz has.

Yes, I think he had a horrible week and as much as I like the guy I think he is this year's Ted Cruz.  Cruz had time to reestablish his footing, Trump doesn't.

 Trump had his 15 [+15][+15] minutes of fame but I think he wonked himself this week.  He stumped his toe, he phucked up.  Trump managed to hit his thumb when he was trying to nail the board.  His construction skills were needed, his leadership skills were needed, instead he was stumped with stupid Rosie ODonnell talk.  He should have stopped that night and put a 24 hour hold on his twitter account and his mouth.  He knows better.  No matter what, you can't scream your way to POTUS.  You need to have the gift of gab like that idiot obama.  obama proved, Talk wins over substance.  Trump has the substance but he can't "You're Fired" himself to the white house.

"and they got to do it before 24 million viewers, many of whom only know of them by the Left's smear campaign against them."

exactly

Real, I'll never get around that the reason we have common core, here, is because of Jindal.....He accepted it, made it policy, then came out against it when he saw what it did to his poll numbers.....Some of his past most loyal supporters don't trust anything he says, anymore.....He has learned to be a slick politician and is looking desperately for a high-paying job.....Doubt he could win any kind of election, anymore.....The money has dried up for him.....

that's some serious analysis

So is Rubio out like woody says he is?  Did Rubio damage himself too severely, with the Gang of 8 fiasco?

Here's what's funny about Fiorina.....She talks about Trump not being able to be effective dealing with world leaders, yet, she couldn't keep from getting fired by the board of HP......Probably should have used some of Trump's stuff...LOL.

Bluedog - did you stay home in '12 and help give Obama four more years to wreck the country?

I'm curious how many of the Trumpettes being played by the Democrats this cycle were also played by the Democrats in 2012 using identical tactics.

Best of all, they are always quick to tell you they can see right through shifty politicians. Classic.

I like Megyn Kelly.
Her twitter and facebook grew. Her viewership is up. Fox news preaches being fair and balanced and she delivers that. Everyone gets a bite of the turd sandwhich including repuvlicans, obama , hillary, trump, etc.
Women groups on the left and middle now support her as well as those on the right. Women groups nomatter their politics have her back.

Trump has full support of liberals right now. 
The appeal for some is that Trump is not a politician and will purge the old guard and rinos.......reality is Trump has done more to support and help democrats than he has republicans. He has only been red side since 2009. He was not a republicans til 1 year after obama was elected. 

How can you run beauty pageants. casinos, star in the apprentice reality show and others, promote boxing, MMA, and other sporting events, live a playboy lifestyle and ignore religion and also be the president of the united states. Let's see how trump does in bible belt with christians and how he does in the south (he is a proud yankee). 

If it was Democrat primary Megyn would have been asked to simply put the crown on hillary's head and she would have asked hillary about monica lewinsky incident. She does not let you hide from your past drama. If you ever said something stupid she will remind you of it. She pitches to you...she isn't outting the ball on a tee. Trump is mad at fox news in general. Guess he thought they were supposed to kiss the ring. I give fox credit. They aren't acting like liberal media and bending the knee with canadidates

Here is a monday morning article
Associated Pess


Donald Trump already slammed the president, the Democratic Party and his Republican rivals in the race for the White House, as well as immigrants from Mexico, the Chinese and Sen. John McCain for being a prisoner of war.

To that fast-growing list, he has now added Fox News Channel host Megyn Kelly.

The Republican Party has long wrestled with the public perception that it is waging a "war on women" and has struggled to convince more women that it's on their side.

By Sunday, as Trump made the rounds of the morning talk shows, he was insisting, "I cherish women."

And yet for the outspoken, combative Trump, Kelly would seem to represent a type of person primed to get his goat.

At 44, she is recognized as successful, whip-smart, commanding and, as she demonstrated during Thursday's GOP debate, a woman more than ready to stand up to the 69-year-old billionaire.

Trump's position on women might be signaled by his proud ownership of beauty pageants and by his wisecrack on a TV show a decade ago that he would date his own daughter, a former teen model who was then 24, if only he weren't her father.

Referring to her debate dust-up with Trump, Kelly said in an interview broadcast Sunday, "I'm sure he'll get over that. We'll be fine. And so will America."

But her appearance on Fox News Channel's "Media Buzz" was taped Friday, before Trump made his "blood coming out of her wherever" remark.

Since arriving at Fox News in 2004, Kelly has broken out as a superstar. Her prime-time program, "The Kelly File," which she launched two years ago in an upgrade from her afternoon slot, attracts upward of 2.5 million viewers.

A native of Syracuse, New York, Kelly had been a self-described "unhappy Washington lawyer" when she began as a weekend reporter for a local Washington station in 2003. A year after that, she was hired by Fox News chief Roger Ailes.

There she struck a different chord from the partisan hosts who surrounded her on the schedule, carving out an image as a calls-'em-as-she-sees-'em yet not-so-doctrinaire figure.

"I've never wanted to be an opinion host, and Roger Ailes hasn't wanted me to be an opinion host," she told The Associated Press in 2013. "I don't think I'd be very successful anyway. I'm not an ideologue. ... I think I'm too moderate and reasonable."

Kelly has cultivated an image of speaking up in ways that have even run counter to Fox's image.

On election night 2012 she left the set to go interview Fox's behind-the-scenes numbers analyst, tamping down the embarrassment of on-air contributor Karl Rove questioning the pronouncement that President Barack Obama had won re-election.

Her legal training helped Fox correct, quicker than its rivals, an initially wrong report on the Supreme Court's health care decision in 2012. She expressed disgust at a man's suggestion that children of working mothers don't fare as well as children with stay-at-home moms.

In June, she landed a huge exclusive: an interview with two of the Duggar daughters who had admitted to being sexually fondled by their brother, Josh Duggar, all stars of the TLC reality TV series, "19 Kids and Counting." Kelly also interviewed the parents, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, for what was the family's first discussion of the molestation episodes a dozen years before.

Kelly's latest showcase was joining fellow Fox News colleagues Bret Baier and Chris Wallace to moderate Thursday's debate with Trump, the current GOP presidential front-runner, and nine other contenders.

Kelly and Trump clashed early on.

A tense exchange found her pressing Trump on his history of calling "women you don't like 'fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals,'" with Trump firing back, "What I say is what I say. And honestly, Megyn, if you don't like it, I'm sorry. I've been very nice to you although I could probably maybe not be, based on the way you have treated me. But I wouldn't do that."

By Friday, Trump had seemingly decided to be less nice.

"She's not very tough and not very sharp," he said during a phone interview on CNN, then, referring to Kelly's style of questioning him, he added, "There was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever."

That startling outburst cost Trump an appearance before some 1,000 conservative activists at Saturday's RedState Gathering in Atlanta when he was promptly disinvited from the event. The Republication Party asked him to "immediately clarify" his remark. Saturday evening, he and a campaign adviser parted company.

But Sunday, Trump remained defiant.

"I apologize when I'm wrong, but I haven't been wrong," he declared, saying only "a deviant" would interpret his remark as a gynecological swipe. He even denied having said it. "Do you think I'd make a stupid statement like that?"

While Kelly seemed to score a boost from the uproar, Trump was unbowed, even claiming credit for the debate's huge audience. Without him on hand, "I say with all due modesty, you would have had 2 million people and not 24 million people."

But despite a series of attacks by Trump that fortified his standing in the polls, CNN's Jake Tapper asked if targeting Kelly, "who's beloved by conservatives, beloved by Republican voters," might end up hurting him.

"Her whole questioning was extremely unfair to me," Trump replied. But he insisted, "I have nothing against Megyn Kelly."
