Megyn Kelly Pulls the Same Shady Move She Used on Trump… Watch How Cruz Responds

Capture

During an interview on The Kelly File with Megyn Kelly, Ted Cruz proved he wasn’t going to play any gotcha games, even if the questioning was coming from a Fox News host.

After explaining that combating illegal immigration would be a complex matter, best tackled in multiple stages, Kelly asked a rather simplistic question for Cruz:

“If you have a husband and a wife who are illegal immigrants, and they have two children who are here, who are American citizens, would you deport all of them? Would you deport the American citizen children?”

Of course, this is a question that no conservative candidate could answer without coming away looking bad. If Cruz answers that he’d let them stay, then he’d lose the conservative audience for taking a seemingly sympathetic approach with amnesty. If he says he’d deport them, then obviously it would mean to the simple-minded that he hates children of illegal immigrants.

Cruz, to his credit, called her out for the question after trying to give a well-reasoned explanation several times.

Via the Daily Caller:

KELLY: That doesn’t sound like an answer. Mr. Trump answered that question explicitly last night on “The O’Reilly Factor.” Will you do so now? … Unlike you, you’re dodging my question. You don’t want to answer —

CRUZ: No, no, I —

KELLY: He said he would. Donald Trump? They’re all gone —

CRUZ: Megyn, I’m not playing that game —

KELLY: Under his policy, what would a President Cruz do? Do the two American citizen children of two illegal immigrants, who are born here, the children. Do they get deported under a President Cruz?

CRUZ: Megyn, I get that that’s the question you want to ask. That’s also the question that every mainstream media, liberal journalist wants to ask —

KELLY: Is it an unfair question?

CRUZ: It is a distraction from how we actually solve the problem.

Cruz would also take another dig at Kelly, saying it was the type of “question Barack Obama wants to focus on.”

Watch the back and forth below…

Kelly was heavily criticized by conservatives for her debate performance earlier this month, with some saying that more brutal questions were delivered to candidates such as Cruz, Trump, and Carson. Others felt she and her co-moderators gave softball questions to more moderate Republicans such as Jeb Bush or Chris Christie.

Comment: Are Megyn Kelly and Fox News helping to decide the ‘most electable’ Republican again this year, much as they did when helping to pre-select John McCain and Mitt Romney?

    I don’t understand how people think the children of illegals has any right to stay here.You don’t breakup families just for one person being a citizen.They can take them back to the country they are from. How’s that breaking up families?

  2. Bill says:

    Kelly must even be embarrassing herself since the video is already taken down! Sad to see a pretty face turn full loony tunes, but, she is proving to be a leftist twat, not a Conservative Lady!

  3. sunnyblues says:

    My hats off to Cruz for not falling into her “gottcha trap”. Kelly has no credibility after the so called debate.

  4. Adrian says:

    The solution is to deport the parents, let the kids stay and put them up for adoption. Give the parents that choice and there is no problem.

    Google “Two Minute Conservative” for clarity.

    I some times Watched, Kelley. I cannot blame Trump for his quick reaction. She sits there with Menses pose. Yesterday she said Obama politisized the Oregon tragedy, BECAUSE he once again stated the opinion of this nations citizen..WE NEED GUN CONTROL there is no other way’ She tried to make her victim she interviewd with that dirty, look she hold through out. PEOPLE like her still do not get it, GUNS kill people. And civilized nations have fewer murders of wives and kids in school!

    1. Edward says:

      WRONG ! Guns DO NOT kill people, people kill people! Just take a pistol, put it on a table in an empty room and lock the door. Twenty years later,unlock the door. The pistol did nothing. Now inject the human element into that room and you have a potential problem.
      Why can’t anti-gun people understand this? Will we regulate pipes because people can make pipe bombs?
      You can pass all the legislation you want. Do you really think the crooks will abide by any regulations? If so, you’re dreaming……..
      The answer to the gun crime problem is as follows: Make the possession of a firearm in the commission of a crime an automatic felony with a MANDiTORY Five years in a FEDERAL PRISON—NO PLEA BARGAIN or early release. You’ll see gun crimes drop like a stone….

  6. Larry says:

    Just Google Micheal Steele and U will see why she has turned like she has.

  7. Ofrahaza5 says:

    She IS Catholic, and a jesuit is behind her questions. Jesuits have declared war on the American people,freedom. America WAS a Protestant state: BUT has become watered
    down. Look around, the papacy has sooooo many “plants”. Poor JFK was offed because he would not push his religion, he said there was only 1 head of state here in America, He would NOT bow to another human…. The pope….

  8. Toodumtu says:

    WTF has suddenly happened to this bitch. She used to act like a conservative until she started considering a position with CNN. Maybe she’s practicing as she changes to the libturd mode. Phuck her and the goat she rode in on.

  9. Brenda says:

    Megan has gotten way too full of herself. Hate to see it happen. Have not been able to watch her for awhile.

  10. Edward says:

    Megan,
    Reality hits……You are not a Queen”,( despite Foxs’ attempt to do so) nor are you a journalist. Before the Trump debacle, we thought you were the greatest thing since the discovery of the wheel. You have proven by your actions,that you are no better than the other “slime balls” on Tv who are trying to make a name for themselves. Until you decide to become a “lady” and apologize to Trump for your line you will have lost thousands of viewers, including us. Karma is watching………………

  11. Chuck says:

    Megyn needs to get a job with msnbc or maybe huffpost. Someone needs to find out who’s pulling her strings.

    1. Edward says:

      I can tell you it’s not Bill Oreilly–he seems to have washed his hands from the whole situation. Watching him for over 10 years, he would have supported her if he thought her line of questioning was correct.The CEO of Fox should resign……………..

  12. Mary says:

    I am not sure why Megyn still considers herself a good journalist but I can only stand to watch her about 10 minutes and then I have to turn the channel, but I always turn back over for Bill and Hannity. I can’t stand to watch her anymore and her mere attitude is worse than her stupid questions, ask important issues like Isis, military control, the dang economy but come on, she is acting as fake as her blonde hair. I suggest her next job be weather girl.

  13. Ronald says:

    It would be more interesting if Cruz, Trump or whom ever asked if her Hustler Magazine style sexual interview/discussion with Howard Stern was her representation of a certain type of American woman. If so, would she elaborate further on her preference for penis size? I am sure she would once again proudly “pass gas” in response…

  14. David says:

    Many today assume the second half of the citizenship clause (“subject to the jurisdiction thereof”) merely refers to the day-to-day laws to which we are all subject. But the original understanding referred to political allegiance. Being subject to U.S. jurisdiction meant, as then-Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee Lyman Trumbull stated, “not owing allegiance to anybody else [but] subject to the complete jurisdiction of the United States.” The author of the provision, Sen. Jacob Merritt Howard of Michigan, pointed out that the jurisdiction language “will not, of course, include foreigners.”

  15. Doug says:

    Fox has decided to control who will get the republican nod. They are bedding down with the wrong group.

  16. Barbara says:

    Kelly you really should find you another profession…take fox with you….you are not a journalist you are crap

    1. David says:

      Although Megyn ‘Bimbo’ Kelly will never see this I agree she needs to go!! Cheerleaders and lingerie models rarely make good reporters!!!

      1. K Thomas says:

        I have never seen so many opinions as, here and now, about Queenie Megan.
        She sits there like an old model, well paid by her Boss.
        Go home Megan, and not come back on CNN or CNBC, if they are looking for more viewers.You ought to learn from Maddow.. and switch it your party way, but not be arrogant, PMS Bit..
