Megyn Kelly helped validate the anti-Hispanic attacks of both Donald Trump and Ann Coulter by hosting Coulter to "balance" Geraldo Rivera’s argument on behalf of immigrants.
On June 29, Rivera appeared on The Kelly File to criticize Trump’s derogatory comments about Mexican immigrants being rapists, druggies and criminals. Kelly cut off and later brushed aside Rivera as he cited statistics showing otherwise. Kelly cited Coulter, who has written her own attack on Hispanics in her latest book, as evidence that Trump may have been right in his antipathy toward Hispanics.
Last night, Kelly hosted Coulter to shoot down Rivera herself.
It’s not as if two-time voter-fraud suspect Coulter has much credibility on any subject. But just compare Kelly’s respectful treatment of Coulter to her combative treatment of Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel who really is an expert in his field.
The debate was reasonably civil and respectful. But while Rivera made his case with facts and figures, such as the amount of Social Security money provided by undocumented immigrants who will never collect it, Coulter offered up such evidence as “only about a third of California prisoners are white.”
Watch the debate below, from the June 30 The Kelly File.
Good to “see” you again!
Banging on the front door, I could hear voices, angry voices. I wasn’t sure I wanted to be there anymore, but, just as I was about to turn away, I heard a scraping at the door, as if a long draw-bar was being removed. The door creaked open slowly, but there was only darkness inside — and silence.
Nobody greeted me, so I gingerly made my way inside. It was dark, but my eyes were adapting. I could see that I was in a reception room with old over-stuffed chairs and it smelled of death. I could see light flickering from underneath a door at the end of the long room, as if a television was on. Slowly, I walked toward the door, listening for any sound, yet hearing nothing.
I paused at the door, hand upon the knob, debating whether I should turn back. Slowly, I turned the knob, terror rising like a scream in my throat. Suddenly, a gust of wind blew the door wide open, dragging me into the room. Light and sound assaulted me from every direction. The room was abnormal, misshapen and redolent of non-Euclidean horrors as perspective shifted in every direction, objects seemed to overlap and extend for infinity, except for one object in the room: a televion at its center. Too late, I saw the FoxNews chyron in the corner. Too late, I saw the creature upon the television screen: Ann Coulter, her carapace slick with the blood of (metaphorical) innocents, chattering madly about some hateful topic. Too late, I saw the gleaming strands emanating from the television, terminating in the eyes and ears of the old and infirm that gathered around it in this evil place of lies and darkness. Too late, I saw the gleaming strands as they reached out to me. I felt her smile her toothy grin as she began to feed upon my fears and anxieties. Too late… too late…
We prepared a script for him to use. He is free to change it around.
Ladies and gentlemen, making this country great was my goal when I ran for president. In the last several weeks, my company had to deal with several setbacks with former business partners, which has resulted in several lawsuits. For the last several days, I had to decide which was important-my company or my candidacy. Because of ongoing litigation with my former business partners, unfortunately, I have decided to withdraw my candidacy for president of the United States.
