Fox Host Goes After Megyn Kelly For Debate Questions: ‘Disgusting!’

August 7, 2015 1:53 p.m.

After Fox News host Megyn Kelly challenged numerous Republican presidential candidates on their conservative views during the Thursday night debate, not everyone at Fox News was pleased with her performance.

Todd Starnes, who hosts the “Fox News & Commentary” radio show, lashed out at Kelly on Twitter following a few questions she posed, which some may have considered “Megyn moments.”

Kelly asked Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker if his stance against an abortion ban exception for saving the life of the mother was too conservative to win the general election. The Fox host also pressed Florida Sen. Marco Rubio on his position on abortion. Starnes did not appreciate this, to say the least.

She then asked Ohio Gov. John Kasich how he would explain his opposition to same-sex marriage if one of his daughters were gay, much to Starnes’ dismay.

Starnes followed up with his critique in a Friday morning video, criticizing Kelly’s questions and reminding his supporters that he is a conservative.

“There were indeed lots of pressing issues raised last night, like whether Scott Walker would really let a mother die rather than have an abortion, or whether Donald Trump is a misogynist, or whether John Kasich would love his daughters if they were gay,” he said. “Now, I don’t want to rehash all the stuff that was hashed last night, but I would like to leave you with this one very important thought. I want you to know something: You have a friend at the Fox News corner of the world, conservatives have a friend, and we friends stick together.”
