So I was sitting watching Megyn Kelly interview Stuart Stevens on Wednesday night, and Kelly interjected what I thought was some pretty insightful political analysis and information that I construed as constructive advice to Donald Trump’s campaign.
After Stevens, a veteran Republican political consultant, opined that at this point in the campaign, it’s all about “addition.” In other words, the candidate should be trying to add new voters to the fold, while avoiding missteps that turn off the voters the candidate he or she has.
Megyn Kelly noted that Hillary Clinton was going on late night comedy shows, shows like the Steve Harvey Show, Entertainment Tonight, and other venues not considered traditional landing places for politicians in order to try to reach new people (another example is Between Two Ferns, which was funny as hell).
Fellow FOX News host was emotionally triggered, and went off on Twitter, accusing Kelly of being in the tank for Hillary Clinton, his overused tactic when anyone criticized the object of his affection — his longtime close friend, New York liberal billionaire, Donald Trump after Kelly said the following:
“And Donald Trump, with all due respect to my friend at ten o’clock, will go on Hannity — and pretty much only Hannity — and will not venture out to the unsafe spaces, which doesn’t exactly expand the tent for either one of them. There, that’s my two cents worth.”
Here’s Sean Hannity’s response on Twitter after Kelly’s interview with Stevens:
