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.

“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.”
“It’s fascinating television, as Trump has been from the very beginning,” she said. Kelly noted that she had been monitoring the election night coverage of every major channel, and what she saw was “everyone, for an hour, in prime time, on Donald Trump.”
