Megyn Kelly hasn’t worked for the Fox News network for a number of years. That doesn’t mean, however, that she hasn’t remained on Team Fox.
Many in the media have connected Tucker Carlson and the theories he promotes to this weekend’s shooting in Buffalo. Kelly thinks people should leave her friend alone and instead focus on mourning the victims.
Kelly said on her Sirius XM radio show, “We will not be naming the shooter on this program, consistent with our policy of not naming mass shooters, who in part are out for infamy and we decline to help. He’s pleaded not guilty, but he also left behind a trove of information, including a 180-page manifesto filled with racist and antisemitic commentary. The shooter was White. Detailing how and why he picked his target.”
The former Fox host continued:
“Some in the media had been quick to point fingers and even place blame on our friend and very popular Fox News host, Tucker Carlson. It’s outrageous. It’s wrong, both factually and morally. Why do we have to go to that place immediately on these stories. Why can’t we spend two f*cking minutes mourning the people who are dead and trying to understand that we have insane people in this country. We have lunatics. It’s a huge country!”
Of course, it is doubtful that Kelly even spent one minute mourning the victims. This spiel just sounds like another page out of the Republican thoughts and prayers playbook.
