There was that time Megyn Kelly defended Donald Trump against The Daily Beast's allegations that Trump had raped his then-wife Ivana.
There was that time Megyn Kelly supported Donald Trump's assertion about the number of undocumented immigrants who are criminals crossing the southern border into the United States from Mexico.
There was that time Megyn Kelly tried to explain away when Donald Trump derided John McCain's imprisonment during the Vietnam War.
There was that time Megyn Kelly had Donald Trump on her show so he could attack Univision for insulting him, and then Kelly also attacked Univision for insulting Donald Trump.
There was that time Megyn Kelly had Donald Trump on her show before he announced his candidacy so Trump could talk about his political views, which he did, unchallenged by Kelly.
There was that other earlier time Megyn Kelly had Donald Trump on her show before he announced his candidacy so Trump could talk about his political views, which he did, which Kelly praised and did not challenge.
Further back, in 2011, there was that time Donald Trump praised Megyn Kelly for "her moderating skills."
You could make an argument that Kelly helped create the idea that Donald Trump is a viable candidate for the presidency. But what happened?
The Rude Pundit's theory is simple (and, frankly, makes about as much sense as any other out there): Donald Trump wanted to fuck Megyn Kelly. Kelly declined. Used to always getting what he wants, Trump is throwing a sustained hissy fit. He is trying to punish Kelly for not fucking him, hence his refusal to do the debate tomorrow night. His beef isn't with everyone at Fox "news" because he is going on The O'Reilly Factor tonight in what will be no doubt a battle of bad breath. He's just angry at Kelly for not bending over when he said he wanted to be balls deep in her and maybe Roger Ailes for not forcing her to do it.
If the Rude Pundit is right, good for Megyn Kelly. It's hard to have ethics, especially when Ailes is constantly masturbating behind the set and telling you to look at the camera like you're sneering at him.
But make no mistake: Trump, Ailes, and Kelly are all awful human beings, so we can enjoy the whole spectacle of Trump and Ailes (if not Kelly herself) clawing at each other until one bleeds out. From somewhere.
