Fox News reporter Megyn Kelly’s vacation is effective immediately, seeming to come almost directly after her publicized words with Donald Trump. If Donald has become known for anything lately, it’s his unapologetic and often offensive words, and the host of The Kelly File may be taking a break from her turn in the political ring.
Trump had stated some things early on in his bid for presidency that have been deemed sexist, and Megyn Kelly decided to take him on. It seems she tried to get the Republican real estate mogul to apologize, and he refused. Instead, he returned with another alleged sexist attack.
“She gets out and she starts asking me all sorts of ridiculous questions. You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever. In my opinion she was off base.”
It is unknown if Donald Trump was talking about Megyn’s lady parts in that statement with CNN’s Don Lemon, as vague as his wording was.
Megyn Kelly announced her vacation after her aggressive feud with Trump, and speculation points to a possible suspension, as previously reported by the Inquisitr.
Former reality TV star Megyn told her audience that she was taking some time off during The Kelly File.
“It’s been an interesting week and a long six months without a vacation for yours truly… so I’ll be taking the next week and a half off, spending time with my husband and my kids, trying to relax. The big challenge is trying to put down the [electronics] and unplug it.”
This sounds like it could be related to what Donald Trump had said about the criticism Kelly has been getting on Twitter.
Megyn Kelly’s vacation announcement came mere days after Fox head Roger Ailes reportedly stepped in to smooth things over. After she had said she will not apologize to Trump for “good journalism,” it seemed there was a war imminent between Fox News and Donald Trump over her refusal. It ended when Ailes offered Trump time on The Kelly File, according to Salon.
It seems Megyn Kelly chose a rather tough opponent when she decided to take him on publicly. Donald Trump is not the kind of person who backs down easily. He recently proved that after refusing to apologize for his early comments about Mexican immigrants.
Do you think Megyn Kelly’s vacation is a personal decision after her attempt to face off with Donald Trump, or is there something going on at Fox that she isn’t allowed to mention?
