Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Joe Biden and the Never Trumpers thought impeachment was the magic bullet that would purge Trumpism from the American political system.
But they got some bad news.
And Megyn Kelly revealed the surprising reason senators would acquit Trump on impeachment.
In an interview with BBC Newsnight, former Fox News anchor and Donald Trump foe Megyn Kelly pinned some of the blame for the January 6 riot at the Capitol on the so-called “mainstream” media.
Kelly said the media experienced a collective freak out over Donald Trump winning the 2016 election and a switch flipped in many reporters’ brains where they took it as a personal affront that Trump was in the White House and set about to destroy the President.
“They hated him so much, they checked their objectivity,” Kelly explained. “It wasn’t just CNN, all of them did. They just couldn’t check their own personal feelings about him.”
Every day became a 24-hour news cycle of outrage and hatred by reporters that built up the toxic political climate.
But where the media experienced their greatest failure was in pushing baseless conspiracy theories about Trump and his campaign working in concert with the Russian government that torched the media’s credibility and led to the information crisis.
So-called “elite” media institutions like ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, The New York Times and the Washington Post drank the Deep State Kool-Aid about Russian collusion and produced lie after lie and false story after false story.
In Kelly’s opinion the media throwing all conventions and norms of journalism to “get Trump” on Russia set the stage of the Capitol riot.
Kelly said that “because there has been a complete lack of trust, a destruction of trust in the media, and people don’t know where to turn for true information,” Americans did not trust the media to accurately report on the election.
In Kelly’s view, had the media focused on the substance of the Trump administration as opposed to turning every day into a contest as to which reporters could produce the most over the top and self-righteous rant about whatever it was Donald Trump tweeted at any given moment, the political climate in America would not have ran so hot.
“The media should have tried harder to take a hard look at his policies and see him clearly,” Kelly added.
But so-called reporters falsely claiming that Trump was a racist, a sexist, a conman and a liar only bound the President’s supporters to him because by making the argument against Trump a personal attack, it turned everything into a personal attack on his voters.
At the end of the day, Trump supporters were left with the obvious conclusion that the so-called “mainstream” media thought they knowingly supported a racist, sexist, conman liar or that the “journalists” thought they were too stupid to detect that Trump was supposedly a racist, sexist, conman liar.
The big story of the last four years was the self-immolation of the so-called “mainstream” media as journalists exposed themselves as unhinged partisan Democrats.
And Megyn Kelly believed that played a role in the Capitol riot.
If Donald Trump is not to blame for the Capitol mayhem then the Senate will acquit him on the Democrats’ sham article of impeachment.
