Megyn Kelly’s career is floundering since moving to NBC.
Her shows are failures and she launched a desperate move to salvage her future prospects.
But she crossed the line when she said this about Trump.
Megyn Kelly received her largest acclaim when she was feuding with Donald Trump during the 2016 election.
Her attacks alienated her Fox News audience, but she was warmly embraced by liberal media critics and executives.
Kelly parlayed her anti-Trump stance into a three year $69 million contract at NBC.
Her time at NBC has been a disaster.
The Sunday night magazine show she anchored was pulled from the schedule.
Kelly’s daytime talk show is a low-rated failure that is best known for production gaffes and bizarre confrontations with guests.
Now she is trying to recapture her old magic.
In the wake of the sexual harassment and rape allegations surrounding close Clinton and Obama confidante Harvey Weinstein, Kelly is trying to drag the scandal to connect to Trump.
“Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” while discussing Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein’s ever-expanding sexual harassment allegations, NBC’s Megyn Kelly said one of her “main takeaways from 2016” was that we as women had “a long way to go.”
Kelly said, “One of my main takeaways from 2016, everything that happened in that campaign, is that we as women have a long way to go, a long way to go. And this is further evidence of that — you know, it’s like how many of these do we have to go through before industries become introspective? Why did the press have to break this? Why wasn’t it someone at the Weinstein Company?”
“If they didn’t know, why didn’t they know?” she continued. “How many more do we have to go through? How many women is it happening to right now until we can affect a real sea change? We might be at the beginning of that, but I don’t think we’re even close to the middle.”
Kelly’s only chance for relevance is for Trump to notice this outlandish statement and tweet about it.
It’s a final desperate bid to boost ratings by smearing the President of the United States.
And just like everything else Kelly has tried since moving to NBC, it will fail.
