Megyn Kelly ripped CBS host Leslie Stahl in wake of her edited 60 Minutes interview with President Donald Trump that aired on Sunday night.
Kelly referred to the 37-minute “unedited” version of the interview that was released by President Trump on Thursday where Stahl sounded “whiny and petulant and biased,” and compared it to how “polished” and “tough” 60 Minutes producers made the host out to be in the edited version.
“Leslie Stahl — when I watched her on the unedited 37 minutes, my main takeaway was the 60 Minutes are so much better than we give them credit for,” Kelly told Glenn Beck of Blaze TV.
“Like, they took this woman — and I’m sorry to rip on her, but — who sounded whiny and petulant and immature and biased and unprepared, and somehow end up slicing and dicing it to the point that we have this image of a professional, smooth, polished, tough interviewer,” Megyn added.
As an example, she pointed out how Stahl pressed President Trump over why he isn’t more authoritative towards those who don’t wear masks to his rallies.
“Her whininess on the subject betrayed her bias and hatred for Trump,” she Megyn Kelly declared. Video Below
