Presidential Election 2016
Megyn Kelly is facing off against Donald Trump in a new interview set to premiere Tuesday night — and RadarOnline.com has a bombshell sneak peek!
The Fox News host appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Monday night to discuss the interview and show an exclusive clip of her speaking with the presumptive GOP nominee.
"Most kids between the ages of six and 16 have been bullied at some point in their lives. Were you ever bullied?" Kelly asked Trump.
"No, I wasn't," Trump said. "But I have seen bullying and bullying doesn't have to just be as a child. I mean, I know people are bullied when they're 55 years old."
"It could happen when you're 45," Kelly hinted, alluding to the feud between the two.
Kelly and Trump have had quite the year so far. Starting in August, Kelly confronted Trump for calling women "fat pigs" and "dogs". Trump then fired back at Kelly saying "there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever." The two had been feuding ever since, on Twitter and on television.

"You got to get over it," Trump told Kelly. "Fight back. Do whatever you have to do. I've been saying this whole campaign that I'm a counter-puncher." Trump emphasized that he was only responding to the attacks prompted by his opponents.
After the clip ended, Kelly told Colbert that she believed Trump thought he was simply reacting to the journalist's initial attacks.
"I think he thought coming after me was a counterpunch against me," Kelly said. "But I would argue that as journalists, we are the counterpunchers. The politicians get up there, make their comments, offer their policies or characters to be assessed by the American people, then it's our job to punch them a little bit. We're really the only thing that stands between them and the Oval Office, so we have to ask tough questions, which, in my own view, doesn't make us fair game for, you know, a year of personal insults."
Kelly said the feud caused a "dark year" for her, but said being "tested' brought her and her husband closer.
