Steve Bannon: I Warned Ailes About Megyn Kelly — ‘She’s the Devil’

Former Breitbart News Executive Chairman and White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon says that he warned former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes that star anchor Megyn Kelly is “the devil” and that she would “turn” on him.

In July 2016, Kelly was reportedly instrumental in Ailes’ ouster from the cable news network after she accused him of sexual harassment.

Bannon’s quite Bannon-esque quote comes in an interview with Politico’s Eliana Johnson, who tells the story of Breitbart News and FNC’s “falling out” over coverage of the 2016 Republican primary.

From Politico:

Months before Donald Trump blew up American politics with his surprise win in November, he did the same thing to the conservative media. Through much of the campaign, two very different media moguls with colliding visions for the Republican Party vied for Trump’s soul: Roger Ailes, the longtime president and CEO of Fox News, and Steve Bannon, the executive chairman of the populist online tabloid Breitbart. Both were angling to be the media Svengali whispering in Trump’s ear.

At one point, it seemed they might have been allies: Bannon worked to insinuate himself at Fox, and Ailes’ network aired some of his populist documentaries. Then came the first Republican primary debate in August 2015, when Megyn Kelly, Fox’s feisty prime-time anchor, hammered the candidate from all sides. It was at that moment that Bannon says his relationship with Ailes began to sour. “The big rift between Breitbart and Fox was all over Megyn Kelly. She was all over Trump nonstop,” Bannon said in an interview. He says he warned Ailes that Kelly would betray him. “I told him then, I said, ‘She’s the devil, and she will turn on you.’”

Tim Allen: ‘Hypocritical’ Anti-Trump Celebrities Are Biggest Bullies of All (Video)

Actor and comedian Tim Allen says the elite liberal celebrities in Hollywood who accuse President-elect Donald Trump of being a bully are themselves the bigger bullies.

“What I find odd in Hollywood is that they didn’t like Trump because he was a bully,” Allen told Fox News host Megyn Kelly Monday night on The Kelly File. “But if you had any kind of inkling that you were for Trump, you got bullied for doing that. And it gets a little bit hypocritical to me.”

Allen, the rare openly conservative Hollywood actor, came on to promote his ABC sitcom, Last Man Standing.

The 63-year-old TV icon said he didn’t think Gigi Hadid’s impression of Melania Trump at the American Music Awards was “appropriate for that venue.”

“I’m not a spokesman for Hollywood, I’m a comedian. So I get to tour around the country and do comedy and I do a show that has a point of view,” he said.

Megyn Kelly: Trump’s Unscripted Campaign Is a ‘Breath of Fresh Air’ (Video)

“That is part of what people love about him,” Kelly said. “He is a breath of fresh air from that standpoint, because we have all heard these canned speeches a million times and that was anything but canned.”

Fox News host Megyn Kelly gave Donald Trump some rare praise during Tuesday night’s election coverage, saying that part of the GOP frontrunner’s appeal was that his speeches are a “breath of fresh air.”

Kelly read off a tweet from frequent Fox guest Simon Rosenburg asking, “Is Trump using a teleprompter?” The joke, she explained, was that Trump was very obviously not relying on a teleprompter and was speaking off the cuff.

Megyn Kelly: The First Casualty in Donald Trump’s ‘Asymmetric’ War on Fox News

2016 GOP frontrunner and billionaire Donald Trump already won his war with the Fox News Channel’s Megyn Kelly.

She’s exposed as having a point of view, rather than being a purely impartial arbiter of news. Now he’s just having fun as a larger war between him and the network’s powers-that-be looms.

In exposing Kelly, he’s employed at least parts of an unwritten playbook for political warfare his former, longtime aide–legendary GOP trickster Roger Stone–has laid out mostly informally over the years called “Stone’s Rules.” Stone hasn’t actually published the “Rules” anywhere, though some appear littered throughout his Twitter account and in a profile that the Weekly Standard’s Matt Labash wrote of him in 2007.

Stone, ironically, is a Fox News Contributor. He left the Trump campaign operation a few weeks ago—Trump says he fired Stone, while Stone says he quit—but he’s become one of the Donald’s biggest supporters on the outside in no time at all appearing on virtually every television show he can to tout Trump’s candidacy. “Never miss the opportunity to have sex or be on television, as Gore Vidal said,” Stone told the New York Times for a fashion profile on him this week.

Rick Santorum Rips Megyn Kelly, Roger Ailes, Fox News for Making Sure ‘Game Is Being Stacked’ in Elections

Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, the winner of the 2012 GOP caucuses, told Breitbart News in the spin room after the undercard Fox News Channel debate that he’s pleased the Fox News Channel is being exposed for being biased in favor of establishment GOP candidates for president.

Specifically, Santorum ripped not just Megyn Kelly and Bill O’Reilly for refusing to put him on their shows even once since he launched his 2016 presidential campaign in May.

Santorum makes the point that it’s fairly outrageous Kelly, O’Reilly, and others have blacked out his candidacy, as he didn’t just win the 2012 Iowa caucuses; he went on to win 10 additional states afterwards. Santorum’s comments came before he went over to billionaire and GOP frontrunner Donald Trump’s veterans benefit across town. Trump pulled out of the debate and instead hosted a Santorum and Mike Huckabee-attended veterans benefit because of Fox News’s bias.

“I wish all the networks would receive the same criticism that Fox is getting right now, but look, you’re looking at a guy who announced on the last week of May and has not been invited back on Fox and Friends, has never had an interview on Megyn Kelly, has never had an interview with Bill O’Reilly,” Santorum said. “They won’t put me on the show. And this is a guy that won the Iowa caucuses four years ago, and when you look at their biggest primetime shows, we haven’t had access to their shows.”

Santorum did thank Martha MacCallum and Bill Hemmer, Greta Van Susteren, and Sean Hannity for having him on their shows. But he said the only reason that happens is because each of them are “friends,” and he wouldn’t even be on those programs if it were up to the network bosses.

Limbaugh scorches Fox News in debate dispute with Trump

Rush: Network ‘acting as if they had been jilted at the altar’

In the wake of Donald Trump’s refusal to be part of Thursday night’s Republican presidential debate on the Fox News Channel, radio host Rush Limbaugh says the popular cable network is acting like a bride whose groom had just fled the church on their wedding day.

“Fox News was acting as if they had been jilted at the altar,” Limbaugh said on his national broadcast Wednesday.

“Donald Trump knows that by not showing up, he’s owning the entire event. Some guy not even present will end up owning the entire event. And the proof of that is Fox News last night.”

The network went into spin mode, with analysts discussing what a mistake it was for Trump to not participate in the debate. Limbaugh felt Fox’s reaction was astonishing.

“Don’t devote the rest of the night to how a candidate’s not showing up because of you, I mean the network,” he said. “It’s very hard for me to say here. I’m stunned watching this because everybody that’s involved has to know this is exactly one of the things Trump is hoping to achieve.”

Benghazi Victim’s Mother Screams ‘Hillary Is a Liar!’ After Watching ’13 Hours’ (Video)

Smith later said she wants to see Hillary in jail for her actions.

It is a travesty that the mainstream media has whitewashed for Hillary Clinton. The Benghazi debacle that left four Americans dead including Ambassador Chris Stephens and State Department official Sean Smith is a tragedy that the former Secretary of State and the entire Obama administration has lied about repeatedly.

In an emotional segment on Wednesday evening’s edition of the The Kelley File which reviewed the highly anticipated Benghazi movie 13 Hours, Pat Smith, mother of the late Sean Smith screamed out “Hillary is a liar!”

The distraught mother could not bring herself to watch the entire movie, particularly after the actor who portrayed her son appeared on screen, but she was adamant to tell the world how the Democrat frontrunner lied to her about the circumstances surrounding her son’s murder.

“I left as soon as Sean came on screen, or the person who portrayed him,” Smith told host Megyn Kelley.

“I couldn’t handle it. Hillary is a liar! I know what she told me!”

Smith of course was referring to Hillary’s claim that a YouTube video dubbed Innocence of Muslims was the catalyst for the U.S. embassy siege in Benghazi.

Smith later said she wants to see Hillary in jail for her actions.
