Megyn Kelly made a prediction about Trump picking this woman to be his VP

Mar 19, 2024

Now that Donald Trump wrapped up the GOP nomination, the talk can officially move to who Trump will select to fill out the ticket.

Everyone is trying to read the tea leaves to guess what Trump will do.

Megyn Kelly made a prediction about Trump picking this woman to be his Vice President.

Trump eliminates some contenders

Donald Trump dropped a clue about the process in an interview with Newsmax’s Greg Kelly.

Trump told Kelly he nixed a couple of candidates because Trump said they “didn’t behave properly.”

Some saw that as a hint that Trump crossed former rivals like Nikki Haley or Ron DeSantis off the VP short list because they either didn’t endorse Trump – in Haley’s case – or continue to take little pot shots like DeSantis occasionally will.

Megyn Kelly – no relation to Newsmax’s Greg – had her own ideas.

Kelly thought if Trump was talking about DeSantis or Haley, he would use a harsher term to describe them, like “loser.”

“Does ‘they didn’t behave appropriately,’ do you think — we’re trying to get into his mind — mean somebody who attacked him?” Kelly stated. “Because I think, I think he would have used a different word. You know, ‘They turned out to be losers.’ You know, I think he would have been stronger in his condemnation and he might have even named them, if they had actually slammed him.”

Rather, Kelly argued, Trump was talking about someone he was considering picking who took themselves out of the running by embarrassing Trump with their conduct.

“I have my own theory,” Kelly added. “My theory is it could be a reference to a rising star in the Republican Party who had such heat and buzz around them that they were asked to deliver the response to the State of the Union — and then bombed.”

Kelly believes Katie Britt’s State of the Union response ended her VP chances 

Kelly told listeners of her podcast that she suspected Trump had Alabama Senator Katie Britt high up on the list of potential running mates, but that her disastrous response to Joe Biden’s State of the Union speech turned her into a national punchline and caused Trump to remove her from consideration.

“Okay. Zero chance he didn’t realize what a train wreck that was,” Kelly declared. “He praised her at a rally over the weekend like a classy guy. Um, but there’s zero chance he didn’t see what the rest of us saw. So what do you think of my theory?”

Trump is going to want to pick someone who is loyal to him and his agenda and who can perform well on TV.

Britt failed the second test with a bizarrely delivered speech that sounded like she was auditioning for a bad lifetime movie.
