As we have all been told many times, often in all caps with misspellings, anyone who criticizes Trump supports Shrillary. This also applies to anyone who criticizes high priests in the Cult of the Great Orange One, e.g., Sean Hannity. Therefore, Megyn Kelly is GUILTY:
“Donald Trump, with all due respect to my friend at 10:00, will go on ‘Hannity’ and pretty much only ‘Hannity’ and will not venture out to the unsafe spaces these days,” said [Kelly last night] in a segment with Stuart Stevens, a strategist who worked on the Mitt Romney campaign. Nor were those remarks an out-of-the-blue, impolitic slam on a colleague. Just before uttering that point, Kelly ripped into Hillary Clinton for pursuing a similar self-sheltering policy: “Now they’re both in their own version of a presidential protection program … They’ve designed her situation so she’s not in a place where she’s feels uncomfortable … which is why she sat for a half an hour with Mary J. Blige the singer, which is why she did Entertainment Tonight this evening, which is why we just found out that when she went on the ‘Steve Harvey’ show, she had every single question given to her in writing in advance and then she feigned surprise as the questions were asked.”
The approaches for both candidates, said Kelly, don’t “expand the tent for either one of them.”

Take that, Megyn Kelly; you have been revealed to all as a Shrillary supporter!
When Hannity was admonished to stand by his colleagues, he snarled,
Good thing Megyn Kelly’s contract is up next year. If Trump wins, Fox News will become official state television along the lines of what you might see in North Korea. If he loses, ratings will collapse, FNC’s credibility having been squandered in a desperate attempt to hype an unfit candidate into office. In either case, there will be further vengeance against those suspected of ideological improprieties — i.e., of not sufficiently idolizing Donald Trump.
Already Hannity has been laying groundwork for a Dolchstoßlegende explanation for Trump losing. If Trump manages to blow it against the nearly unelectable Shrillary, don’t be surprised if Hannity gives Megyn Kelly a karate chop:
