Fox New’s Megyn Kelly is “fired up” for the first Republican debate of the primary season:
“‘It’s adrenaline. It’s excitement about the unknown,’ she says. ‘You want to be respectful toward the candidates and the process. You have to give it your all. You have to go in there prepared to really bring it. It’s an interesting, very charged process. . . I’m not a partisan person. Our news division is truly fair and balanced,’ says Kelly, host of Fox News’ 9 p.m. news analysis show The Kelly File. ‘I’ve voted for Democrats and Republicans. I don’t care about either of these parties. I care about America. I care about my audience. I care about liars. I just find it interesting from a sociological perspective.’”
Right. Happily, the Twittersphere is “fired up” as well, and they have some helpful suggestions for Kelly. #megynkellydebatequestions is currently trending on Twitter, and the Internet has, once more, outdone itself. It all started with this:

And things went from there. Questions ranged from hunting:

To basic math:

Climate change and poverty made an appearance:
You feel how cold it is in this studio. Is global warming really a bad thing? #MegynKellyDebateQuestions — Crutnacker (@Crutnacker) August 4, 2015
Some people are saying it’s easier to fight the impoverished than fight poverty. Would you agree? #MegynKellyDebateQuestions — Zach Minute (@NerdHockeyFun) August 5, 2015
As did police brutality:
When looking at the rash of police brutality caught on video, are you concerned there are just too many cameras? #MegynKellyDebateQuestions — Crutnacker (@Crutnacker) August 5, 2015
Some suggestions were more tasteful than others:
You’ve seen the Duggar daughters. Tough to fault Josh, isn’t it? #MegynKellyDebateQuestions — Crutnacker (@Crutnacker) August 4, 2015
Every Republican’s favorite washed up musician, Ted Nugent, got a shout out:
Name your favorite Ted Nugent song. P.S. It can’t be Cat Scratch Fever. #MegynKellyDebateQuestions — Claw Fitguy (@ClawIsFit) August 5, 2015
Donald Trump, inevitably, proved to be a favorite target:
Donald Trump can you please label each candidate dummy loser total jackass or not a war hero #MegynKellyDebateQuestions
— mattstueck (@mattstueck) August 5, 2015

#MegynKellyDebateQuestions You support “smaller government,” but do you mean for ALL Americans, or only those with penises?
— Tony Myers (@brewcitytony) August 5, 2015
Once again, it has been clearly demonstrated that Twitter is a very dangerous place for Republicans. That said, I’d pay good money to see the candidates have to answer a few of these. Hey, a guy can dream, right?
