Donald Trump is a Perpetual Sucker: Megyn Kelly Edition

Donald Trump is always saying (in public, usually on tape) that people are “great” and “wonderful” and that he is great friends with them. As we discussed this morning, being a perpetual sucker, he always seems to realize, way too late to the game, that he was wrong and that they are terrible and awful people. We catalogued earlier today that this is a very long standing issue with him, in that he was drastically wrong about, among others, Ted Cruz, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Joseph McQuaid, and the list goes on and on.

You can now add to this list Megyn Kelly. Here is Donald Trump, talking about Megyn Kelly in 2011:

Kelly: Do you really think that you’re a better moderator than I am?

Trump: No, I could never beat you. That wouldn’t even be close. There would be no contest. You have done a great job, and I mean that.

Trump: I don’t think she’s a very talented person. I don’t think she’s a good reporter.

Other than Carl Icahn, who has Trump ever praised in public that he still thinks is a great person? And is he embarrassed at all that he’s so constantly made into a public sucker by everyone?
