Megyn Kelly’s ‘too-cute-by-half‘ snarky and condescending schtick finally brought Newt Gingrich to the point where he gives it back to her. It is remarkable it took this long before someone finally called her out:
Ms. Kelly’s world is, and has been, crumbling for well over a year. Her life’s “professional mentor and personal role model” (her words), Roger Ailes, exited Fox News under a cloud of sexual impropriety. Given the backdrop of her pearl clutching protestations to Newt Gingrich, there’s a profound irony..
After a long run of serious relationship trouble due to her daddy issues (father died when she was 16 – affair with Brit Hume etc…), her current personal life is once again a shambles; and that’s despite her metrosexual subservient husband trying to fill the unfulfillable void.
Her TV ratings are on a downward spiral, and Kelly’s contract is soon to expire. Which is the worst scenario for renegotiation. More unavoidable “dependency”.
Fox owner Rupert Murdoch gave Kelly (via Harper Collins) a $6 million advance on a book deal as payment for services against Trump last year. A book that comes out in two weeks and everyone knows no-one will read it. A looming failure so certain it will surely highlight the real motive for the payment.
And now, to make matters infinitely worse, the primary recipient of her hostile projected insecurity is about to become President of the United States…..
You just gotta laugh.
…. because everyone who knows the entirety of the back story can clearly see where she’s headed:
ps. I think part of what pushed Newt to the breaking point with Murdoch’s Little Princess, was he was watching this interview with Mike Pence while waiting to appear:
