Megyn Kelly immediately regretted attacking one Trump supporter
Megyn Kelly is restarting her feud with a high-profile Trump supporter.
It’s a desperate bid to generate media buzz.
But she immediately regretted attacking this individual the second the words left her mouth.
Kelly appeared on MSNBC and attacked talk show host Alex Jones – who is a prominent Trump supporter – after the parents of Sandy Hook victims announced they were suing Jones for defamation over comments he made alleging they were crisis actors.
The Daily Caller reports:
“The point of this lawsuit is to stop it–to stop it–once and for all,” Kelly said. “The point of our speaking to Alex Jones was to expose him for the, untethered conspiracy theorist that he is and he clearly hasn’t learned his lesson, because even in response to that, he continues with the nonsense and the lies to the detriment of the Newtown families.”
Kelly also said, “It’s about time someone tried to hold him accountable in the courts.”
Jones is being sued by parents of children killed in the Sandy Hook shooting.
Jones has made conspiracy claims about the shooting before, saying that it was fake. He later tried to walk back such claims, saying he was playing “devil’s advocate.”
Last summer, Kelly interviewed Jones on the second episode of her Sunday Night news magazine.
Liberal critics trashed the interview because Jones got the better of Kelly.
That marked the beginning of the end of any chance she had to succeed at NBC.
Liberal viewers were turned off by her performance.
Conservatives already didn’t trust her.
So this left her without any audience she could claim as her base.
Attacking Jones on MSNBC was her attempt at career rehabilitation.
But will it work?
