On “CBS Sunday Morning,” Charlie Rose got Megyn Kelly to reveal threats against her life after Donald Trump‘s attacks put the Fox News star into the spotlight.
She told Rose, “It’s not so much what he writes or says, it’s how he gins up anger among so many, so it manifests in my life in several ways.” Kelly worries that “someone’s gonna hurt me in the presence of my children.”
But commenters on YouTube didn’t let Kelly off the hook, noting her own role on the conservative network.
“Honestly, I’m not a Kelly fan, nor am I a Trump fan,” said one. “But Kelly wants sympathy after she’s done more than her fair share fomenting and inciting hatred with the support of Fox News and Roger Ailes.”
Said another: “She’s playing the victim card. She’s the biggest bully in the news business. Now my hometown radio station has been playing advertisements saying how great Megyn Kelly is and how she loves America. The truth is, Trump and his supporters tanked her show and they are desperate which is why she was being interviewed on CBS. Bye bye Kelly. Karma hurts when it comes around.”
And also: “Listening to Kelly’s story, it makes me think HOW MUCH SHE AND TRUMP ARE ALIKE. I think Trump likes her and I think Kelly likes Trump. They both like interesting people. They both have a pit bull quality, however completely different, but there is a similarity.”
But a prominent figure likes Kelly:
