Megyn Kelly: I Should Get The Hillary Clinton Interview, Not Bill O'Reilly

It's a Fox News vs. Fox News showdown.

Megyn Kelly thinks that if Hillary Clinton decides to come on Fox News for an interview, the former secretary of state should sit down with her, not Bill O'Reilly.

Kelly seemed offended when Fox News analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano suggested Monday night that O'Reilly would get the first sit-down interview with the 2016 presidential candidate.

"Bill O'Reilly -- what?" Kelly said. "She should sit with me and I'll tell you why, with all due respect to Bill. Because Bill -- and I love him -- does macro ... and I’ll go micro. And she needs to be asked the specific questions. You need to be able to go ten layers deep with her because that's the only way you get answers."

Napolitano argued back that while Kelly has the "legal knowledge" that O'Reilly lacks, O'Reilly has "the ability to terrify" Clinton.

"I can terrify!" Kelly shot back. "I don't want to terrify Hillary, I actually want to sit down and have a fair interview with her."

Kelly and Napolitano both agreed that they find it hard to imagine Clinton would go on Fox News at the risk of being pressed by Kelly.

"She has never been confronted in public with somebody like you," Napolitano said, "smarter than she is."
