Megyn Kelly Says She Prayed Christie Would Be at Debate So She Could Expose Him

During a GOP debate, Megyn Kelly got the chance to question Chris Christie about his stance on medical interventions for gender-confused children.

Christie defended parental rights and less government involvement, stating he trusts parents to make such decisions.

Critics and commentators strongly opposed his views, with some calling it “pathetic” and “totally wrong.” (Trending: Hunter Biden Indicted on 9 New Criminal Charges)

“You do not favor a ban on trans medical treatments for minors, saying it’s a parental rights issue,” Kelly began.

“The surgeries done on minors involve cutting off body parts at a time when these kids cannot even legally smoke a cigarette,” continued the moderator.

“Kids who go from puberty blockers to cross-sex hormones are at a much greater likelihood of winding up sterile,”

“How is it that you think a parent should be able to OK these surgeries — never mind the sterilization of a child — and aren’t you way too out of step on this issue to be the Republican nominee?” Kelly eventually asked.

“No, I’m not, because Republicans believe in less government, not more, and less involvement with government, not more involvement in people’s lives,” Christie answered.

“And you know what, Megyn? I trust parents,” said the former prosecutor.

“And we’re out there saying that we should empower parents in education, we should empower parents to make more decisions about where their kids go to school — I agree,” Christie added.

“We should empower parents to be teaching the values that they believe in in their homes without the government telling them what those values should be,” he concluded.

Christie admitted that “every once in a while, parents are going to make decisions that we disagree with” but went on to claim that “the minute you start to take those rights away from parents, you don’t know that slippery slope, what rights are going to be taken away next.”

Kelly previously expressed her opposition to Christie’s stance and believed it was out of step with the Republican Party.

“He is too radical on this issue to be the Republican nominee, in my view,” Kelly had told Glenn Beck.

“This is way out of step with where the Republican Party is, and it was the one reason I wanted him to make the debate,” she said.

“I prayed and I prayed to God and all of angels above, please, please let him make it,” Kelly said.

Christie’s unpopular position and the potential impact on his presidential nomination bid.
