“I sat down for an hour and then I did a Megyn Kelly one and she had, you know, just, jeez, she became nastier all of a sudden,” Trump said.
“She was pretty nasty, didn’t you think?” he asked the audience.

"During the interview with Kelly, which was released last week, the pundit pressed the former president over his handling of classified documents after leaving the White House," the Hill reported.
"She noted that his lawyers had signed off saying they turned over everything asked for in the subpoena, only for federal agents to find more classified materials," it added.
We had one hell of an hour together.
Would Pres Biden ever subject himself to tough Q’ing like Trump does? Will any honest journalist w/ access to him do it??

"We had one hell of an hour together. Would Pres Biden ever subject himself to tough Q’ing like Trump does?" Kelly posted with the link to her interview with the former president.
"Will any honest journalist w/ access to him do it?" she asked in her post.
The interview was the first between Kelly and Trump in seven years. She became critical of his words toward women during a GOP primary debate when she worked at Fox News.
The feud seemed to continue long after Trump became president in 2016. Kelly later left Fox News, launching her own program on Sirius XM. The longtime gap between her last interview with Trump and her recent discussion led to some discussion over whether she had become a Trump supporter and if the two had settled their differences.
Instead, Trump's most recent reference to Kelly as "nasty" showed that the sit-down did not appear to resolve their differences but may even begin a new round of controversy as Trump seeks to return to the White House in 2024.
