Podcaster and veteran cable TV host Megyn Kelly expressed her opinion Friday that President Donald Trump won the presidential debate on Thursday night “handily” over challenger Joe Biden.
“Trump won this debate, handily. Biden wasn’t a force at all,” Kelly wrote on social media. “Trump was substantive, on-point, well-tempered. Definitely helped himself, when it mattered most.”
Kelly was on Fox News previously, but she and Trump did not really get along. When she moderated a debate in 2015, she asked Trump tough questions and he pushed back.
Trump then refused to participate in another debate Kelly moderated, and then-primary candidate Ted Cruz said that she had referred to Trump as “Voldemort” behind the scenes at the debate. She and Fox News denied doing so.
After leaving Fox News in 2017, Kelly took a job at NBC News but was forced out in 2019 after making a comment about blackface. She now has a top-rated podcast through her new company Devil May Care Media.
