Megyn Kelly is on the comeback trail.
The former Fox News host built her stardom by feuding with Donald Trump during the 2016 Presidential election.
Then Megyn Kelly stopped everyone in their tracks by dropping the one bombshell about Trump that no one ever saw coming.
Megyn Kelly was unceremoniously fired last year by NBC.
Kelly struggled at the liberal network after jumping from Fox News.
Now Kelly’s career is in limbo and many pundits believe she is angling for her old job back at Fox News.
Speculation about her return to Fox News began to mount last year while she was still at NBC.
Rumors floated that NBC wanted out of the disastrous 69 million dollar contract they handed her in 2017.
Kelly added fuel to the fire when she backed up Brett Kavanaugh on the air and refuted the network’s liberal talking points that Kavanaugh was a drunken gang rapist in his teenage years.
And Megyn Kelly did nothing to tamp down that speculation with her reaction to the Mueller report.
Kelly blasted the media for drinking the Russian collusion conspiracy Kool-Aid and destroying their credibility in the process.
Kelly tweeted, “Mueller: no evidence of collusion w/Russia. Now will the media who invested so much in this narrative accept it, remembering that they are not supposed to root for outcomes? Or will they hold on, looking for ways to save face on their earlier (wrong) predictions/coverage?”
Kelly also mocked the fake news reporters who built their careers peddling conspiracy theories about Trump and Russia in order to personally enrich themselves.
“They will hold on – it will be the journo/punditry equivalent of “he’s going to call me, right? The reason he hasn’t called is he must be really busy, or on a trip, or in the hospital. Just stay steady! It’s not over!” People, collusion is over,” Kelly wrote on social media.
Many people are wondering if anyone in the fake news media will pay a price for purposefully misleading the American people for over two years about a story they knew was false.
But no one can count on the media to police themselves.
CNN’s chief media reporter Brian Stelter showed no contrition that his network promoted the Russian collusion conspiracy.
Instead, Stelter used his Sunday show to applaud the media for asking questions.
In fact, CNN’s chief media reporter claimed that the media misleading the American people for two years was actually a public service.
Maybe, every single time Trump said “no collusion,” he was telling the truth. Maybe that’s what Mueller found. But Trump’s daily deceptions have given Americans AMPLE reason to be suspicious about his Russia ties. And so we wait… pic.twitter.com/zwIIqe7jEI

Conspiracy theorists – whether they are 9/11 truthers, birthers, or believers in Russian collusion – always say they are “just asking questions.”
But there are no two ways around it – the press failed journalistic standards by refusing to display any skepticism towards the intelligence community’s sources and elected Democrats that pitched them the Russian collusion hoax.
Journalists claimed after the failure to properly vet the claims that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction that such industry-wide failure in journalism would never happen again.
But it did.
The media willingly participated in a scheme to steal the ability of the American people to choose their own leaders.
And it took Megyn Kelly of all people to point out this obvious truth.
Do you think anyone in the fake news media should lose their job over publishing fake news about Donald Trump and Russia collusion?
