Megyn Kelly asks Charles Krauthammer about the "movement" to get the Republican party to nominate Scott Walker at the convention as the nominee.
"Do you think that this has any chance? I mean I know the judge thing was controversial but was it that controversial?" Kelly asked the syndicated columnist.
Krauthammer called it a fantasy and likened it to the parting of the Red Sea. From Thursday's broadcast of FOX News' Kelly File:
MEGYN KELLY, FOX NEWS: You mentioned Scott Walker. We reported last night that there is a movement under way in earnest right now to actually get the delegates at the Republican National Convention not to vote for Trump even though he's the presumptive nominee, on the first ballot, to sustain. And the name they're circulating now as a possible alternative is Scott Walker.
Somebody asked Scott Walker about it and he said, 'I would support the nominee. Trump's not the nominee yet.' Do you think that this has any chance? I mean I know the judge thing was controversial but was it that controversial?
CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: This is a repetition. If it ever happens, it's the parting of the Red Sea. And that happens only every few thousand years. There is no way this is going to happen. This is another fantasy of people who can't accept the reality of Trump. Trump is a reality. He's going to be the nominee.
Can you imagine if a guy comes in with a fairly substantial majority of the delegates or at least the pledged delegates who have to vote for him on the first ballot and he's denied that? I mean Trump is talking about riots in the arena with a kind of an ominous edge. But that is a prescription for mayhem in Cleveland. I can't see it happening.
