Megyn Kelly Tells Team Trump To 'Just Shut Up' Already About Women's Weight

Burn!

Fox News host Megyn Kelly has followed up a fiery interview with Donald Trump’s campaign manager to flay the GOP candidate’s team for continuing to defend degrading comments he’s made about women. 

“Why don’t they just shut up about the women and how big they’re supposed to be?!” she asked her guests on Thursday.

Kelly seized the moment to succinctly put her case after Navy Seal veteran and Trump supporter Carl Higbie said he didn’t understand why the media was focusing on the brash businessman’s awful comments about former Miss Universe Alicia Machado.

“Well the reason is because many people find that kind of objectification objectionable,” she said. “And you shouldn’t alienate half the country ― women ― and you shouldn’t alienate 70 percent of the country who are overweight.” 

“It’s a good way to lose votes,” she added. 

The night before, Kelly went after Trump’s campaign manager for downplaying the Republican candidates history of making sexist comments.

“You know he has repeatedly made comments about women ― about their looks, their size, their weight, even in this campaign,” Kelly told Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway.

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
