'the second coming'

Megyn Kelly expertly ridicules media coverage of Donald Trump meeting Paul Ryan

The media circus over Donald Trump's meeting with House Speaker Paul Ryan on Thursday was entirely too much for Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly to handle. "You would have thought it was the second coming," Kelly said on her show,The Kelly File, mocking MSNBC's "Breaking News" chyron that said "Breaking News: Trump Gives Thumbs Up Heading Into Meeting."

MSNBC was far from the only media outlet that Kelly mocked during the segment, which featured Fox News editor Chris Stirewalt, the Daily Wire editor-in-chief Ben Shapiro, and radio host Dana Loesch. "Look, look, CNN with a shot of Trump's plane," Kelly said. "Wolf Blitzer was walking us through the plane's progress on the tarmac!" Her guests chimed in, too: "I was shocked they didn't have a hologram," Loesch said, while Shapiro added that they were "treating [Trump] like he's some sort of J.D. Salinger-esque recluse."

Fox News wasn't exactly innocent either, Kelly admitted. "We also had an eight-box up at some point," she said.

Trump, the GOP's presumptive nominee, met Thursday with Ryan, the Republican Party's highest-ranking member, to discuss party unity. Prior to the meeting, tensions between the two had flared after Ryan refused to endorse Trump.
