Wonder what we have going on here…
CNN MONEY – Donald Trump and the Fox News host Megyn Kelly met at Trump Tower on Wednesday morning, people with knowledge of the matter told CNNMoney.
Fox News chairman Roger Ailes was not in attendance, the people said.
An NBC reporter spotted Kelly entering Trump Tower shortly before noon.
Representatives for Trump and Fox had no immediate comment. But Kelly is planning to discuss the meeting on her prime time program Wednesday night.
Kelly reached out to Trump’s office to set up the meeting, one of the sources said.
The face-to-face chat raises the possibility of a Kelly-Trump interview sometime in the future.
I don’t know how they’d work out the terms of an interview. Kelly is too honest just to let Trump say whatever he wants without challenge and Trump is too whiney to let Kelly challenge him the way she does others.
So who knows. Maybe this has more to do with her upcoming Fox TV special than a sit down news interview.
I guess we’ll find out tonight.
Consider this an open thread.
UPDATE: Here’s the Fox News response to the news of Megyn Kelly’s meeting with Trump today, via TVNewser:
FOX News Chairman & CEO Roger Ailes has spoken to Donald Trump a few times over the past three months about appearing on a FOX Broadcasting special with Megyn Kelly airing on May 23. Kelly requested a meeting with Mr. Trump, which took place at Trump Tower this morning. The results of that meeting will be revealed on tonight’s Kelly File at 9PM/ET. Kelly has acknowledged in recent interviews that Trump is a fascinating person to cover and has electrified the Republican base.
