On "The Rubin Report" Thursday, BlazeTV host Dave Rubin said "all hell's been breaking loose" after former President Donald Trump shared a video of Megyn Kelly on Truth Social Wednesday night with the caption "I AGREE."
Megyn weighed in on a potential Trump-DeSantis rivalry in the 2024 presidential primary during an interview with Rubin earlier this month. In a clip from the interview, Megyn explained why she doesn't believe DeSantis would stand a chance if the former president decides to run again in 2024.
"I just don't think anybody else could win if Trump runs," Megyn began.
"You don't think that DeSantis is crafty enough or the record stands enough?" Dave asked.
"No," Megyn emphatically answered. "No, I don't even think that a little. I think Trump sucks up all the energy in every room no matter what. And even someone as skilled as a politician and smart policy-wise as DeSantis can't overcome that. He can't. The only way DeSantis is going to become the Republican nominee is if Trump chooses not to run and endorses him," she added.
"You really think the hardcore MAGA is going to abandon Trump for DeSantis? They're not ... they like DeSantis, but they don't think it's his turn. They think Trump was screwed out of his last election, that he was screwed out of his first term by all the craziness of the Russiagate and so on, and they think he is entitled, that he deserves another shot at it," Megyn went on to say.
"The hardcore Trump-faithful [are] unshakable," she stated. "They like DeSantis, but they would never cross Trump for him. And they think that DeSantis owes his political career to Trump. If forced to choose, they will choose Trump, so DeSantis can't take him down. It's like the line in war games, the only winning move is not to play."
