It’s almost time. Fox News’ Megyn Kelly previewed her exclusive upcoming interview with Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, slated to air Wednesday, June 3, where the TLC stars will discuss their son Josh Duggar’s molestation scandal.
“I’ll take that reputation as a tough but fair journalist,” Kelly said on her program on Monday. “However, this isn’t going to be a cross-examination of a family. It’s going to be an interview. I want to hear their story. And I think America wants to hear their story now.”
“Nothing is off limits,” she continued. Well, almost nothing. “I don’t plan on getting into the specific details about what was done,” she explained, “because my understanding is the victims don’t want to discuss that either.”
Since the controversy broke on May 21, the family’s TLC series, 19 Kids and Counting, has lost several advertisers. But the Duggars have received support from some, including Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee. Kelly, for one, isn’t a fan of how some have lashed out at the politicians because of this.
“Bill Clinton was accused of rape. He has been accused by several women of sexually assaulting them,” Kelly said. “But the fact that a presidential candidate has posed with some random member of the family that’s going through this issue is somehow a problem for the GOP’ers?”
Kelly’s discussion with the Duggars will air on The Kelly File on Wednesday, June 3 at 9 p.m. ET. A one-hour Kelly File special filmed from the couple’s Springdale, Ark., home will follow on Fox on Friday, June 5.
