And crap like this is why conservative voters should be looking at the people in their circle who voted for Trump and saying, “Do you have any idea what you’ve done??”
It’s a rhetorical question, of course. Most of them don’t, and don’t care.
Megyn Kelly isn’t exactly on every Trump fanatic’s Christmas card list.
I doubt she’s on any of them, actually.
I’ve heard everything there is to hear from both sides, as far as what caused the hostilities between Team Megyn and Team Trump. At this point, it doesn’t even matter.
He won. It’s done.
Even if you are vehemently opposed to how she treated Trump throughout the campaign, let us not lose sight of Megyn Kelly’s humanity.
She is a wife.
She is a mother to three, small children.
She was doing a job.
The level of hatred over a perceived slight during a heated presidential campaign is not a reason to threaten anybody’s life.
Appearing on Anderson Cooper’s CNN show, Kelly explains how for an entire year, she and her family had to have security, because of the death threats coming from the frothing Trump fanatics.
In fact, Fox News had to reach out to Trump’s campaign and ask them to stop encouraging death threats against her.
They didn’t care.

So this is now the question: Had Megyn Kelly or any high profile Trump antagonist been murdered by one of Trump’s unhinged supporters, would it have hurt Trump on election day?
We can do nothing more than speculate, at this point.
It pains me, however, to say that if pressed for an answer, I would have to say “no.” Our humanity has seeped away through this electoral process.
It’s going to take some doing to come back from this, if we ever do.
