Fox News host Megyn Kelly criticized former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton Monday for refusing to come on her show for an interview during her bid for the White House.
On her program "The Kelly File,” Kelly said she asked Clinton "50 ways from Sunday" to come on her show for an interview during the campaign, but "she wouldn't do it."
Kelly noted that Clinton condemned Trump’s attacks on her during campaign stops and praised her work as a journalist.
"All of her time out there saying what a fantastic journalist I am, which she was using because she knew Trump had attacked me, she was using to try to curry favor with certain voting blocs," Kelly said.
Kelly said she thinks Clinton never agreed to an interview with her because she was “scared,” but also said that “her team didn’t want to legitimize Fox News.”
Kelly added that following the election, “people who didn't call her out at all are now shocked and horrified that Donald Trump might not sit with certain news reporters or organizations."
Prior to the election, Kelly challenged Clinton campaign press secretary Brian Fallon to encourage Clinton to appear on her show.
