And on the 3rd Day, Megyn Kelly Says She Will Cover Politics

By Chris Ariens 

On the third day of Megyn Kelly Today, Bob from Princeton had a question: “Is football politics or entertainment? And have we crossed the line?”

That gave Kelly an opening to clarify how much, or how little, politics she will cover.

“Let me put it back to you,” Kelly said to Bob from Princeton.


“Do you — how do you feel — do you support political demonstrations, at these football games? Raise your hand if the answer is yes. You’re about split. I can see both sides of it. But I do think that — everybody has their first amendment right to express themselves and I love that about this country. And the other people have the right to object, right? And to not watch.”

For me, I have had it up to here with politics being everywhere. That’s why I said, when we launched the show, I’m kind of done with politics. It’s not that we’re never going to cover politics on this show, we are going to cover politics. But must every show everywhere be the Trump show? Everywhere? With all due respect to the president, everything we do is Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump. We’re trying to launch a program that will be more broad and not mire itself in the negativity of dark, political arts.

In fact, as part of her deal with NBC News, Kelly will be front and center covering big political nights, the first being the 2018 mid-term elections.
