Trump: Yes, I’ll be at the next Fox debate — with Megyn Kelly

posted at 2:01 pm on February 5, 2016 by Ed Morrissey

Donald Trump’s climbdowns at the end of this week don’t stop with Ted Cruz, apparently. In an interview with Newsmax’s Steve Malzberg, Trump committed to attending the next Republican debate on Fox News on March 3rd, even with Megyn Kelly as moderator. He claimed that his boycott of the last Fox debate had “nothing to do with Megyn Kelly“:

“I’ll be there, I have no objection to being there,” Trump said Friday on the “Steve Malzberg Show,” when asked if he’d be at the Fox News debate in March

“And that had nothing to do with Megyn Kelly, the fact that I went out of the last one had to do with a memo that was sent out by Fox that was a little bit taunting and I said it was inappropriate,” he continued.

“And what happened is because I didn’t do it I raised $6 million for the vets. So I wouldn’t have changed places, I mean I did the right thing.”

This is pure spin, and half-hearted spin at best. Yes, Fox News sent out the taunting (and in my opinion, unprofessional) press release, but it was in response to demands by Trump to remove Kelly as a debate moderator. Trump picked that fight himself all over again, perhaps hoping to score some voter enthusiasm by attacking the media, or just to get some more free media in the run-up to the caucuses. Trump’s campaign threatened a boycott before that press release if Kelly was allowed to moderate the debate, and Trump himself polled his social-media followers on whether or not to follow through on that threat. As Allahpundit noted at the time, the Fox News press release was in response to that polling/trolling, not the cause of it.

Now Trump wants to pretend that the issue wasn’t about Kelly, but that’s pretty close to urinating on the heads of anyone who paid attention and then commenting on the rainfall. He doesn’t want to admit that he blew it in Iowa by bailing out of the debate, and that Trump’s got little choice but to retreat and show up for the next debate unless he wants to continue to rattle late deciders with concerns about his temperament. That’s why he’s backing down from the fight with Cruz as well. He finally got stung with his antics when it counted, and Trump realizes that people need reasons to take him seriously when it comes to voting for him, not just be entertained by the spectacle. How long he can maintain that discipline is anyone’s guess.

Truth is the Fox mod team hasn’t been very interesting…there’s a constant reliance on gotcha questions that make it impossible for the candidates to react to each other.

Know it sounds crazy, but F. Chuck Todd and Rachel Maddow showed everyone how it’s done last night.

WestportSC on February 5, 2016 at 3:59 PM

Why is does Fox keep bringing back Kelly to the debates?

Ratings and cash.

recruited an illegal alien to try to embarrass Trump (on his issue #1), and #3 recruited a a Bernie-supporting muslim activist to embarrass Trump (on his issue #2).

Trump will have to face these things in the general. He will be ambushed at debates at events, you name it. Fox is more than justified in making him face the situations he will face in the general in the primary so we can see how he handles it (and push any errors into the old news category instead of the October Surprise category). The short on that is, run and hide does not impress me or instill any confidence that he is ready for and can handle the general. Quit whining over rough treatment. It’s unseemly and It’s coming for whomever wins the primary regardless. If you want to whine, whine over not giving rough treatment to the establishment favorites.

mikethemoose on February 5, 2016 at 4:02 PM

I like Shannon Bream and a few of their other women tv personalities. Not sure what’s the deal with Meg at Fox News. My guess is that she was embraced by the msm, so she now has full fledged credibility.

cimbri on February 5, 2016 at 3:56 PM

It just seems like when personalities like Kelly’s is put on the throne of the moderator chair, it dumb downs the debate process…which isn’t good especially when our nation is on an almost unrecoverable slide into the abyss.

b1jetmech on February 5, 2016 at 4:02 PM

mikethemoose on February 5, 2016 at 4:02 PM

It makes the debates more about the networks and not us getting the important info needed to make informed decisions.

Pray tell me then, you establishment swine, why don’t they ambush other candidates besides Trump and Cruz?

Rix on February 5, 2016 at 4:06 PM

Know it sounds crazy, but F. Chuck Todd and Rachel Maddow showed everyone how it’s done last night.

That’s because when Democrats get to the general they need to be ready to answer substantive debate questions. Because that’s what the MSM will ask Democrats. Questions that allow them to demonstrate and elucidate their positions.

mikethemoose on February 5, 2016 at 4:06 PM

Kelly, kicked Trumps @ss…sorry Trump, but you lost again this week.

I still would like to know the answer to the simple question you were so upset about…

When did you actually decide to become a Republican?

Here koolaid drinker. Let me quote myself from THIS THREAD

Umm….yeah. That was a given. So what? We all know Fox is an establishment shill. That didn’t just come to light.

and

Fox is essentially Murdoch and Ailes. Ailes does make it a point not to interfere too much with opinion shows. I’m fairly certain Fox (Murdoch/Ailes) would love it if Bush/Kristie/Kasich won the nom. The fact they aren’t giving those three the same rough treatment as Trump/Cruz/Rubio is what pisses me off at Fox. Not that Fox is giving Trump/Cruz/Rubio the rough treatment. Quite frankly they need it to be ready for the general. Anyone complaining that Fox is being to rough on Trump/Cruz/Rubio is just wrong. They aren’t being rough enough on Bush/Kristie/Kasich.

Now go guzzle some more koolaid until you’re sure your potted plant is an establishment shill because it watched the debate and didn’t cheer for your candidate.

mikethemoose on February 5, 2016 at 4:11 PM

Ah the GOP motto.

Quit whining and take your lumps. Don’t like Obamacare? Quit whining. Romney Gets slandered? Quit Whining.

See the thing is, you can’t run a Luxury Hotel if your motto is “quit whining”.

I WANT my elected officials to whine and whine and whine until things are the way we want them: that’s how things get done in the world of Luxuary: that’s how I want my government.

All you honorable losers can do is fold to Obama or worse: craft an Amnesty package that guarantees 30 million new Democrats.

Skipity on February 5, 2016 at 4:11 PM

That’s why they had a gotcha video prepped for him right? Make no mistake out of the three I mentioned, Trump/Cruz/Rubio I’m fairly certain they prefer Rubio pretty heavily. It doesn’t mean he gets the same preferential treatment as their golden child Bush. I lumped him with the others mainly because of the contrived video gotcha.

Now you make sense.

it is abominable that moderators insert themselves and their opinions, often paid-for ones, into the debates. Essentially, the presidential election may come down – and in 2012, likely did – to the political preference of a TV talking head. Debates MUST be moderated by a computer.

The Donald learned the old French adage the hard way in Iowa: “Les absents ont toujours tort”–absent people are always wrong. To paraphrase in English, “show up or shut up”.

Starting a stupid feud with Megyn Kelly and skipping the debate only led to Kelly giving softball interviews to all the other Republican candidates on her primetime show on Fox News, and tRump was left out.

So the next time big bad Megyn asks tRump a tough question at a debate, wait for him to say, “Look at that face!”, while Hillary laughs at the TV and roots for tRump in the primaries…

They’re humiliating us. When you go after a candidate for his views … and Trump is against everything the FOXe management wants, then they are in effect going after people who believe the same.

FOXe doesn’t care about you, me, Trump, Cruz, Rubio or Bush. They care about squashing anything in the way of the monied agenda. Trump is in their way. Cruz is in their way. We’re in their way.

Make no mistake. Trump is pro-America. FOXe isn’t.

That is Krauthammer, Fox news commentator, supposed conservative saying this:

It’s that he’s not conservative. Trump winning the nomination would convulse the Republican Party, fracture the conservative movement and undermine the GOP’s identity and role as the country’s conservative party.

But Romney was/is totally a conservative. Yeah, he wants to conserve the status quo. Which if you look at my native state, California, its gone from being 78% white in 1970 to 38% white in 2010. But you know, hispanics are natural conservatives and CA isn’t run by the Dems. Fundamental change, just bring in a new compliant voter base. Status quo equals making you a slave to the government. Your culture will be voted out of existence, paid for by your tax dollars.

His not going to the debate was the result of the Fox press release. It still has nothing to do about Megyn Kelly. Furthermore, by a march it will all be pretty much over, one way or the other.

BillCarson on February 6, 2016 at 11:59 AM

Hopefully, she won’t start with dumb questions about misogyny, this time. It set the tone for a transparent takedown which backfired badly on her and had her executives scrambling. She took two weeks off to recover, remember?

This poisonous press release was a clear indication they wanted to try it again, so there was a downside for Trump in obliging them.

It also underlined some negotiation factors. Fox cannot command a candidate to appear and perform. They know now that they don’t have unlimited power, even in their own venue.

I expect Kelly to be more subdued in the next event. The ratings were good for the last event, but not where they could have been. Everybody realizes that.

We will be surprised if there are any post-debate hugs for Republicans!

kcruiser on February 6, 2016 at 4:45 PM

Gee Ed, talk about spin.

We’ve seen how he negotiates so all his actions up to that point were valid and no real indication of what he would actually do.

Yes he wanted her off, and sure he tried to bully them into taking her off but his claim that it was the petty snarky twit they put out using the fight to compare how other world leaders would treat with Trump and he them was a bit juvenile.

He felt they weren’t negotiating in good faith so he played his nuke card.

You just want to believe what you want to believe and disregard the rest. And that’s fine but don’t expect everyone to fall in line or for it to matter much.

Trump didn’t lose because he walked from that debate. Trump was only leading recently because of a bump from Palin. Cruz was always up in Iowa due to it’s evangelical’s, the caucus system and the straight laced conservativism practiced there.

jake1246 on February 6, 2016 at 6:59 PM

OH. And we also don’t know what’s been said behind the scenes and given strict non disclosure cover.

Fox may have made some guarantees to Trump but demanded he not say anything about the agreement. It would make Fox look ridiculous and prove Trump right. Trump believes he proved himself right and didn’t need to say anything so he went along. Thus the appearance at the next debate.

Much more likely and in line with what’s happened in the past. Fox couldn’t afford another brou haha with their advertisers.

It’s all about the Benjamins.
