MEGYN KELLY (HOST): Dana Perino?

DANA PERINO: Well, I think that there's a little bit of selective memory going on. Donald Trump wasn't in a position that Hillary Clinton was in 2003, and the lead-up even after 2001 and 2002. He wasn't in the United States Senate, he wasn't on the Armed Services Committee, she was. So, she was privy to the information.

So, if he's on Howard Stern's show and he says "I guess so," I mean, that's pretty much where the rest of the country was as well -- I mean, actually people were a little bit more gung-ho. I don't think it's fair to actually hold him to that account, him saying that he was and he wasn't, people can hold him to account for that. But with her, I've never understood why she disavowed the vote.
