Former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich showed up on Megyn Kelly’s pantomime last night, and did he ever nail it, expressing the feelings of millions of us regarding how Megyn Kelly has acted during this election cycle, beginning way back in August of last year with her biased blitz attack on Donald Trump at that first primary debate.
The “news as opinion” media people like Kelly are dependent upon the good graces of the people they call guests, which is the only reason that they can butter their bread. Megyn Kelly is well aware that a bona fide candidate surrogate’s role is to promote and defend the candidate and the party.
Listen carefully to how well Megyn Kelly works her strident inquisition in a relatively biased manner in order to paint both Trump and Gingrich with the same brush, a tactic she used with Pence as well. It’s too late in Kelly’s career for her to pull the ‘womyn’ card on her own behalf and at the same time claim equality. It’s getting darned hot in the kitchen and it was her turn to break the sweat.
What exactly her point was intended to be, got lost in her prosecutorial rhetoric. I believe her original point was supposed to be something about questionable messaging at a Trump event regarding suing women for slander, and whether that would lose women’s votes. Then she went off on a tangent.
Megyn Kelly is not a lawyer in this job, and it’s something to ponder why she is no longer at bar. Newt Gingrich is no angel, I grant you, but she was in the chair to be the pro and allow due process on the exchange. She failed.
Then on another front, as related by Russ Vaughn in today’s American Thinker, The Washington Post just posted the confessional account of an über-lib voter who used the very favorable platform of that Trump-detesting cage-liner to fess up to her criminal behavior in stealing Trump yard signs in her very tony, upper-middle-class home town of Falmouth, coastal Maine.
As she tells it, she and her liberal Democrat fem-pals just couldn’t stand to see all those Trump signs on display, so they hopped in her hatchback and went about their mission of ripping them up and hauling them away. Until, that is, they got stopped by one of Falmouth’s finest, who correctly informed them that they were engaged in criminal activities, a not unusual occurrence for Democrats during election season.
After relieving the political plunderers of their burning burden of “about 40” Trump signs, the officer apparently wrote out a ticket, because the confessor and her cohorts received a court summons next day.
In any event, the lady says she’s now contrite, but as some cynical commenter noted, she’s a writer and is probably trying to use The Donald’s candidacy as her springboard to national recognition. Amazing, isn’t it, how many of these women attacking Trump are in the process of opening businesses or expanding their careers. Guy’s not even elected yet, and he’s already creating jobs at a faster clip than Obama after eight years of Democrat policies.
What is perhaps the funniest revelation of this mea culpa is one I’m sure neither the author nor the Washington Post intended but included nonetheless (emphasis mine):
The escapade was not premeditated: We simply jumped into my Jetta wagon, drove down to the strip and got to work. In all, it took less than 20 minutes. We grabbed about 40 signs and threw them in the hatchback. I hadn’t really thought about what I would do with the signs; I just wanted them gone. At the time, we believed we were doing the right thing. There were so many Trump signs up and down our main drag — it was destroying all sense of equilibrium in our community.
And therein, folks, lies the tale.
