Kelly asked the tough questions and touched on hard-hitting social issues that dominated the debate.

From challenging Florida Senator Marco Rubio on his previous support of abortion exceptions for victims of incest and rape, to getting Dr. Ben Carson to all but endorse waterboarding, Kelly got the answers people were hoping would be asked of the candidates.

According to a Fortune report, Kelly called out Trump for supporting Hillary Clinton, once being pro-choice, and calling women names such as "fat pigs, dogs and disgusting animals."

Trump called Kelly's questions "ridiculous" and "off-base," according to CNN
