Fox News journalist Megyn Kelly looked shocked as it became more and more evident that Donald Trump will win the presidency. Megyn and Trump had some animosity for a while now. Trump is not a politicly correct person and Megyn is a journalist whose job it is to ask hard questions so it is easy to see how these the started to attack one another.
Fox News host Megyn Kelly could not contain her horror as she realized that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump was going to win the election.
Throughout the cable news outlet’s coverage, Kelly’s demeanor fell to an all-time low, and at one point it looked as though she was fighting back tears.
You might recall that Kelly hasn’t had the best relationship with Trump. The two have sparred throughout Trump’s campaign, and Kelly’s stances, which include calling Trump a “sexual predator,” have made it look like she was leading her own campaign against him.
At times it appeared that she was working every angle to bring him down.
In the video clip below, Kelly looked crestfallen as her colleagues discussed the probability of Trump winning.
Perhaps she was thinking about how in the not-so-distant future she would have to refer to Trump as “Mr. President.”
Take a look:
It’s almost too sad to watch. Almost.
Kelly allowed her animosity toward Trump to take over last night, and in doing so she failed to remember what a Trump win meant for this country. Regardless of her feelings about Trump, Kelly was well aware that a Hillary Clinton presidency would have destroyed the foundations that made America a great nation.
The real horror would have been in a second President Clinton.
Journalists are expected to control their emotions when reporting, and they are also expected to remain unbiased. Kelly failed on both counts when it came to Trump.
Perhaps, after some post-election rest, Kelly will gain a clearer focus on what this election was actually about, and hopefully she will be able to report about it, and Trump, fairly in the future.
