Megyn Kelly’s career went off the rails when she jumped from Fox News to NBC.
NBC fired her last fall and Kelly has been casting about trying figure out where she fits in today’s political and media landscape.
And that’s when Megyn Kelly said eight words no one ever thought they would hear.
Megyn Kelly is in no man’s land.
Few people feel sorry for her as she walked away from NBC with her full 69 million dollar contract after being fired due to social justice warriors complaining about remarks she made about Halloween costumes and blackface.
Kelly has no obvious next landing spot.
Fake news CNN won’t touch her because she used to work at Fox News.
Fox News seems unlikely to want her back after she spurned the network after they planned to build their primetime lineup around her following the 2016 election.
But that has not stopped Kelly from taking a surprising pro-Trump stance in the last few months.
Towards the end of her time at NBC, Kelly stunned the left-wing network’s liberal viewers by defending Brett Kavanaugh from the hoax claims that he sexually assaulted women in high school and college.
Kelly’s stance towards Kavanaugh – and some of President Trump’s actions – raised eyebrows across America.
During the 2016 election, a then-candidate Trump famously boycotted a Fox News Business Channel debate because Kelly was slated to moderate.
The two claimed to have since patched things up with a Trump Tower meeting, but most observers suspected Kelly still harbored ill will toward Trump.
But Kelly continued putting her new pro-Trump attitude on display when she cut down Hillary Clinton for peddling conspiracy theories and misinformation about her 2016 Presidential defeat.
During an “Evening with the Clintons” event in Los Angeles, Clinton claimed she ran a flawless campaign, but that the Russians stole the election from her.
“I think it’s also critical to understand that, as I’ve been telling candidates who have come to see me, you can run the best campaign, you can even become the nominee, and you can have the election stolen from you,” Clinton told the crowd.
Kelly shot down this nonsense by pointing out two facts.
“You can indeed, but this is not what happened to you. #wisconsin,” Kelly tweeted in response.
First, Clinton ran a terrible campaign.
As evidence, Kelly needled Clinton about the fact that she never campaigned in Wisconsin because the campaign assumed the Badger State was safely in the Democrat column.
Second, the Russians did not steal the election from Hillary.
There is no evidence the Russians changed any vote totals.
Donald Trump won the election because he was a superior candidate with a superior message.
The griping from Clinton is getting old to many Americans.
They wish that after two failed Presidential campaigns she would finally have the good sense to take the hint and go away for good.
And Kelly gave voice to those sentiments with her latest tweet.
