(FreedomJournal.org)- President Donald Trump and Megyn Kelly famously argued throughout the 2016 campaign, but it seems the pair have officially made up…and all it took was a terrifyingly left-wing Democratic Party presidential ticket.
Following the second and final Thursday presidential debate, Megyn Kelly praised the president for his performance against former Vice President Joe Biden. Kelly said that the president gave substantive answers, proved effective, and “handily” beat the Democratic candidate.
“Trump won this debate, handily. Biden wasn’t a force at all,” she said.
“Trump was substantive, on-point, well-tempered. Definitely helped himself, when it mattered most,” she added.
Her opinion was echoed by many other conservative voices, too. President Donald Trump is known for his aggressive debate performances, but this time round he appeared calmer and more substantive than usual. President Trump let Joe Biden dig himself into holes by letting him speak for longer, while using his time to more effectively deconstruct his lies.
The president was pleased to see Kelly’s praise and thanked her for her comments.
Thank you Megyn! https://t.co/sC71EEWIOd

Kelly received plenty of abuse for her comments, however. Left-wing actress Patricia Arquette repeatedly tried to drag he former news anchor intro arguments, claiming that she “must have been drinking bleach.”
Kelly responded by saying she doesn’t suffer from “Trump Derangement Syndrome” and can “still engage in fair analysis.”
This is fair analysis. Trump has lowered the bar in every way imaginable. You accept his pathological lying. This is an analysis of you and your clear bias. He was just seething and muted instead of talking and sputtering all over his opponent.

Arquette than claimed that her comments were fair analysis and that President Trump was a pathological liar and had “lowered the bar.”
Was she watching a different debate or something?
President Donald Trump even won the debate according to the National Review, the conservative magazine that famously initiated much of the Never Trump movement.
“To use a boxing analogy, I think he won the match on points, but the margin gets better for him in the post-mortem,” Andrew McCarthy from the National Review said. “Former Vice President Biden said some truly indefensible things.”
Why would a magazine that opposes the president and a news anchor who famously argued with him in the last election come to his defense if he didn’t actually win?
