Fox News host Megyn Kelly, who has been mentioned flatteringly by Hillary Clinton in interviews and public appearances, has called on the Democrat to appear on The Kelly File, saying in a message on Twitter Friday afternoon Clinton should agree to an interview “instead of just using my name to hit” Donald Trump:
Yes, @HillaryClinton, do 30 min w/@maryjblige, & then perhaps u will finally sit w/me, instead of just using my name to hit @realDonaldTrump https://t.co/5T9Dhwk2s1

On Monday night, after the first presidential debate, Kelly asked Clinton campaign manager Brian Fallon why Clinton has so far refused to appear on The Kelly File. “Hillary Clinton went on record and called yours truly a ‘superb journalist’ when Trump was attacking me,” Kelly said. “Why won’t she come on ‘The Kelly File’?”
Fallon at the time said it was only “a matter of time” before Clinton agreed to an interview.
