Megyn Kelly’s bosses have her back. After Donald Trump said she shouldn’t be allowed to moderate the upcoming Republican presidential debate, Fox News came to Megyn Kelly’s defense.
“Megyn Kelly has no conflict of interest. Donald Trump is just trying to build up the audience for Thursday’s debate, for which we thank him,” a Fox News spokesperson told Business Insider on Saturday.
“She’s very biased. She’s very biased. She has a conflict I think. Her hatred and her bias, I think, gives her a conflict. So maybe she’ll drop out as a professional. And she’s a professional,” Trump told his supporters in Pella, Iowa on Saturday afternoon. It was Saturday morning he took to Twitter to say Megyn Kelly shouldn’t serve as one of the debate’s moderators.
Based on @MegynKelly's conflict of interest and bias she should not be allowed to be a moderator of the next debate.

The Republican presidential debate will take place on January 28 in Iowa. Megyn Kelly will join Chris Wallace and Bret Baier as one of the debate’s moderators–whether Donald Trump likes it or not.

Do you think there is any valid reason Megyn Kelly shouldn’t be allowed to moderate this debate?
