    I'm not a big fan of Kelly's and can't say I ever really liked her, but she wrongly got chewed up and spit out by political correctness. If anyone here thinks she's wrong and needed to apologize and then get walked out of the building, can you please explain with as much detail and specificity why, because other than being PC I don't understand what part of what she said was wrong. (please don't respond by saying 'well, if you don't know...' because I don't.)

    Megan Kelly is a total fool and phony. She sold her soul to the collective, they bought it and then used her accordingly. She will never be taken seriously as a freethinker again. She needs to be humble and ask us for forgiveness before we take her back.

    How much do you want to bet that they set her up with that line to say. They were looking for an opportunity like this and they are pulling all the stops before the election. They are trying to scare black people away from republicans.

    True enough, but really this nonsense has gone too far. Every single word these days is measured and weighed, its more like thought control than anything else...

    I have no place in my heart for Megan Kelly either, but it's like everything else these days: exercising your Freedom of Speech may have dire, negative, consequences for you.

    From the top down:
    > report something which our President deems negative about himself, and he wants you body-slammed;
    > refer to an obese person as, "fat," and you are publicly condemned for, "shaming," them;
    > act out for the camera, if you are a male, in the distant past on a potentially tasteless mockery of a woman's breasts while she is sleeping, and lose your Democratic Senatorial seat;
    > kneel rather than stand during our National Anthem, and half our country (including the President) want you fired;
    > post something in jest on your Facebook page for your friends to see, and lose your job over it... etc.

    My boyfriend asked if it's a mockery for black people to wear blond wigs... hmmmmm......

    For Halloween? Anyway, no, actually we are at the point where just about anything you say and hear drastically offends someone.

    Is it a mockery if Mexicans make Chinese food, because if it is, then there are some joints near me who can expect to have problems.

    I think her ratings had more to do with this then her comments. I saw the clip and youtube and I think her point was fair. NBC was looking for an excuse to get rid of her and used this one.

    Though I did not see the alleged offensive show, the next day i did see her apology. I kept wondering why she apologized. She works for the left. She must have been aware they are authoritarian and not tolerant. She knew they are not liberal in the definitive fashion of the term liberal. She has a clause in her contract that will still pay her 20 million per year till the contract ends. A no break clause. She is lucky to escape the left with such a great deal.

    Like having a paid vacation.

    For halloween? Yes. Still racist.
    And yeah, the world is pretty sensitive right now. Though, somehow the vast majority are able to get by ok
    So I just watched the clip and c'mon man. She was inferring that she couldn't seem to understand why people today get in trouble because it was fine when she grew up.

    I don't think she should get turfed for it, but she definitely should have been a little more self aware.

    NBC still has to pay her $20 million per year till the end of the contract. The left is authoritarian, not liberal. She had a pair of blacks on the show the day she apologized that made a lousy case, one that would fail in court over this issue. When the left stops its pretension to have tender hearts for blacks, we will all be better for it. I paid close attention to the two blacks she had to try to dress her down and they simply proved to me they are bigots.

    I kept wanting her to bring up Hamilton, where black actors pretend to be white people. But she did not. And she is a lawyer.

    A black guy on her apology show says blacks can keep this up for 400 years and keep it a live issue.

    Her comments were not smart comments.

    I don't care what they do with her, I dislike her.

    But she's worked amongst the politically correct leftist enforcement MSM for a long time. She should have known that her incorrectedness would become her rejectedness.

    It seemed like the entire point was to continue to portray blacks as perpetual victims; deviating from that line of thought cost her.
