Remember when Megyn Kelly introduced herself to NBC viewers by saying she would not discuss politics as the host of Megyn Kelly Today?
Hmmm… perhaps we ought to back up a bit and first ask instead:
Remember Megyn Kelly?!?
The former Fox News anchor made headlines on a near-daily basis back during her time as a host on that network.
She even hosted a debate between Donald Trump and the pathetic politicians he managed to beat out for the Republican Presidential nomination in 2016!
Kelly was a relevant member of the press, that's our point here.
Then, she left Fox News for NBC… stirred up quite a bit of controversy with her arrival… landed her own hour on The Today Show… and tried to become a Kelly Ripa-like television presence.
Kelly was suddenly all nice and normal and tried to be the woman next door who just has a few kids and a husband at home and who wants to gab about the latest fashion trends, as opposed to the latest political happenings.
Then her ratings tanked.
Then she interview Alex Jones (!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!).
And now she's irrelevant.
This brings us to Monday morning and Kelly's return to the political arena, as she hosted a round table discussion with NBC's Hallie Jackson, PBS' Amy Holmes and Rolling Stone contributing editor Joe Levy.
The topic at hand?
Embattled Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and the multiple accusations of sexual misconduct that have been made against him over the past several days.
"What a mess, that's a clean version of what I was thinking in my head," Kelly said at the top of the conversation, later making it clear that she's on Team Kavanaugh and adding she has no idea why Democrats would push for the FBI to investigate the aforementioned allegations.
"[The FBI's] not a super-secret special police force to investigate super-secret really bad things the nominee may have done. That's why we have congressional investigators," she said.
"The Republicans actually are investigating the Christine Blasey Ford allegations and the Democrats have refused to do so!
"They're standing there in protest saying the FBI needs to do it, which doesn't really help us."
Two quick things here:
- Isn't the FBI precisely a special type of police force whose mission is to get to the bottom of confusing and complicated cases of national importance?
- The FBI did investigate Anita Hill's claims in 1991 than then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas sexually harassed her.
Later in this segment, Kelly cuts off a panelist and emphasizes:
"He's saying he didn’t do it. He's not saying that those allegations against him amount to nothing if he did! He's saying he didn’t do it!"
Oh, well, that changes everything.
If Kavanaugh is saying he didn't do something… why is this even a debate?
Watch the heated exchange now!
