Poor Megyn Kelly.
The ex-Fox News host turned NBC host is so desperate to avoid the mere mention of President Trump, she even came out and outright said it before her show even aired.
Her new NBC show “Megyn Kelly Today” premiered this morning, but she made it clear before the whole thing even took off that she wanted nothing less than a Trump-free zone on her show.
“I don’t want to talk about Trump all day,” she said while being asked about her new show.
My, how Trump Derangement Syndrome works.
She claims that she is simply not all that into politics and doesn’t want to talk about it.
One, she is into politics, she just doesn’t like President Trump, and is using the classic “let’s not talk about it” deflection tactic.
Two, she isn’t going to be able to avoid bringing up President Trump whether she likes it or not, not on Trump-bashing, ultra-left, fake news NBC.
According to Breitbart:
Megyn Kelly says she left Fox News Channel to bring more joy to her life. NBC hopes that starting Monday, she can spread some to the network and its viewers.
The former Fox News Channel star and Donald Trump foil debuts her talk show at 9 a.m. EDT, nestled into the four-hour “Today” show block and competing in most of the country with Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest’s “Live!”
Kelly hosted a Sunday-night news magazine this summer to middling ratings, and it returns next spring. It’s the daily talk show, in the lucrative morning market, that will ultimately determine the wisdom of NBC News’ decision to hire her. She promises that “Megyn Kelly Today,” shown live with a studio audience, will be an information-packed hour with a sense of fun.
“It will be very similar to the ‘Today’ show, but we’re going to have a lot more elbow room,” she said in an interview.
Ellen DeGeneres initiated Kelly into daytime TV this week by having her awkwardly toss pizza dough, stuff herself into a fat suit and dance with the audience; Kelly smiled and played along. It was a long way from her Fox life of pressing the future president at debates, enduring his Twitter taunts and being the ringleader for an hour of politics each weeknight.
The Trump trauma wasn’t why she left Fox, Kelly said. She compared it to her decision to abandon law to become a journalist and ending her first marriage: they weren’t bad experiences, but she knew there was something better.
The truth, Kelly said, is that she’s not a political junkie and cable television news is all about politics.
“I don’t want to talk about Trump all day,” she said. “In fact, the bar is very high for Trump coverage (on ‘Megyn Kelly Live’). If you want Trump, you can watch virtually every channel in the country and get Trump non-stop. I think people are looking for a break from that. Not just Trump, it’s inside the Beltway. I don’t want to talk about Mitch McConnell either, or Chuck Schumer or Nancy Pelosi.”
“Live! With Kelly and Ryan” is a celebrity- and entertainment-oriented talk show. Kelly said her program will be uplifting and more substantive: recent trial runs had segments on reacting to the Equifax breach and protecting yourself from attack. Mental health, bullying, coping with divorce and tips for job interviews are the type of topics she’ll cover.
Megyn Kelly has alienated the entire viewer base she’d built up over the years at Fox News, and now this?
Do you think she will ultimately be fired yet again?
Will NBC put up with anyone not willing to bash President Trump at least twice a minute?
Trump Derangement Syndrome. Plain and simple.
I’ll bet people who normally watch NBC in the morning will switch the channel now.
I bet people already did this morning.
No one likes a trouble maker.
