Whether you like or not, most conservatives are in agreement over what is happening to Megyn Kelly right now. And that includes those on Fox News, Kelly’s old home network.
Fox contributor Tomi Lahren summed it up best, sending out a tweet saying it is “straight bull.”
Love her or hate her, what’s happening to Megyn Kelly is straight bull.

During a panel discussion on “Today,” Kelly was discussing Halloween costumes and political correctness.
She stated that during her days as a trick-or-treater, wearing blackface was okay for a costume.
Kelly stated, “You truly do get in trouble if you are a white person who puts on blackface at Halloween or a black person who puts on whiteface for Halloween.”
“That was OK when I was a kid, as long as you were dressing like a character,” she added.
Doesn’t seem too bad, right? Just an observation. WRONG!
The outrage over her comment was immediate and harsh.
Network executives also came out to criticize Kelly, leading many to believe at best, her role on “Today” was about to end.
Kelly tried to do some damage control the next day by issuing an on-air apology.
Her apology meant little, though, as even members of her own team remained outraged rather than taking this as a simple mistake.
Al Roker, who does the weather on “Today,” stated, ‘The fact is, she owes a bigger apology to folks of color around the country.”
Kelly has since been removed from the “Today” show and her future with the network is unclear at this moment.
Many believe this was nothing more than the network trying to cut its losses on what was deemed to be an epic failure.
They have pointed to stars like Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon, both of whom have used blackface in skits on their shows with zero repercussion.
The same people that are calling out Kelly now literally said nothing when those two liberal stars did their skits, but they are all beside themselves now.
Lahren got it right… whether you like her or hate her, Kelly is definitely getting a raw deal right now.
