KELLY NEVER ASKED CLUB FOR GROWTH'S MCINTOSH WHETHER THE CLUB HAD REQUESTED A CONTRIBUTION FROM TRUMP AND BEEN REFUSED BEFORE THE CLUB ATTACKED TRUMP AS JUST ANOTHER POLITICIAN TRYING TO CON VOTERS!

Fox News star Megyn Kelly used her role as a debate moderator to try to torpedo Donald Trump's presidential campaign by charging that Trump is at war with women (as distinguished from harsh with particular women who attack him, including Rosie O'Donnel and Kelly at the debate.

Kelly apparently was not deterred by the post-debate polls and still seems determined to keep Trump from winning the Republican presidential nomination next year.

On Thursday night, September 15, Megyn Kelly interviewed four Republican presidential hopefuls – Ben Carson, Carly Fiorina, Marco Rubio and Rand Paul, In effect, she gave them the floor to make their case.

Kelly didn't ask a tough question to any of them and did her best to boost both Carson and Fiorina.

Then Kelly covered the Club for Growth's ad campaign against Donald Trump and interviewed the Club's president, David McIntosh.

Trump promptly responded to the ad campaign – the theme of which is that Trump is just another politician conning voters – by saying that he had refused a Club request for a $1,000,000 contribution and the ad campaign was sour grapes funded by lobbyist and special interest money.

KELLY NEVER ASKED CLUB FOR GROWTH'S MCINTOSH WHETHER THE CLUB HAD REQUESTED A CONTRIBUTION FROM TRUMP AND BEEN REFUSED BEFORE THE CLUB ATTACKED TRUMP AS JUST ANOTHER POLITICIAN TRYING TO CON VOTERS!

Fox News claims to be fair and balanced.

It wasn't fair to Fox viewers for Kelly to give McIntosh the floor to criticize Trump without asking whether Trump's assertion to have refused to contribute was true.

Earlier in the evening Bill O'Reilly interviewed Trump and pointed pressed Trump whether he would vote to defund Planned Parenthood and demanded a yes or no answer.

Trump answered yes, without equivocation.

Viewers must be wondering whether Club for Growth admits or denies and why Kelly never asked.

I doubt that O'Reilly would have left his viewers wondering whether Club for Growth admits or denies Trump's claim to have been solicited by Club for Growth.

I'm sure Sean Hannity would have pursued an answer to that question.

Kelly's viewers deserve better.
