Anti-Trump Megyn Kelly Left Fox News To Be New Darling On NBC, Didn’t End Well

Megyn Kelly left Fox News after she was exposed as a “Never Trumper.” During the 2016 campaign, Kelly was hellbent on making sure she did everything in her power to hurt Donald Trump, and she was rewarded with a multi-million dollar deal from NBC. However, the network just turned on her in the most vicious way. Don’t miss this.

Megyn Kelly could be finished. During her Tuesday show, the former Fox host commented that wearing “blackface” wasn’t really racist. Kelly concluded that she isn’t “PC” (politically correct) and then went on a rant that didn’t go over well with her NBC employers.

“But what is racist?” Kelly asked. “Because you do get in trouble if you are a white person who puts on blackface on Halloween, or a black person who puts on whiteface for Halloween. Back when I was a kid that was OK, as long as you were dressing up as, like, a character.”

Breitbart reports, “After being thrashed for her remarks and taken to the woodshed on social media, Kelly apologized to her colleagues in an email, saying she now realized that ‘the history of blackface in our culture is abhorrent, the wounds too deep.’ Kelly signed a three-year deal worth $69 million last year with NBC after she preened to the mainstream media elite while she was at Fox News during 2016 campaign season by trying to kneecap Trump while embracing Never Trumpers. After Matt Lauer’s departure, Kelly is reportedly the network’s highest-paid talent.”

The Daily Mail reports, “Multiple sources have confirmed to that Megyn Kelly is out at NBC. This move comes just 48 hours after the embattled host made remarks in which she defended blackface on Today. Kelly tried to deal with the scandal by delivering a tearful apology on-air and welcoming two black panelists to discuss the fraught and horrifying history of the practice, but it did no good.”

Megyn Kelly is done. She is not ever coming back,” said an NBC executive with knowledge of the situation. “We are just working out timing of the announcement but mark my word – she is gone and will never be seen on NBC live again,” they add.

The source then added: “Here’s the worst part – her deal is a non-break deal – so she walks away with all that money. It’s disgusting and heads should roll here because of it.”

Wow, besides getting to keep the money, Megyn Kelly has suffered a blow she might not ever recover from. Only time will tell if the source is true and NBC follows through with the termination.

Yesterday, she was still trying to hold on to her career by posting this tweet, “I want to begin with two words, I’m sorry. The country feels so divided and I have no wish to add to that pain and offense. I believe this is a time for more understanding, more love, more sensitivity and honor. Thank you for listening and for helping me listen too.”

Megyn Kelly found out the hard way you can’t apologize to the leftist mob. She wanted to be the new mainstream media darling, so she became a vicious “Never Trumper” in 2016 as her Fox News contract was up for renegotiation, dog whistling to the Trump-hating media that she would play their game.

NBC pick her up and she was so happy her Trump bashing paid off. She had made “the big time,” or so she thought. Megyn Kelly must be kicking herself for thinking that the anti-Trump crowd would take her in and that she could become one of them.
