Megyn Kelly’s Replacement Has Been Chosen, and It’s a Former President’s Kid

That was fast.

Last week, after making some controversial statements about the topic of blackface being used as part of a person’s Halloween costume, NBC host Megyn Kelly was fired from her morning show, no doubt a devastating blow to her career.

Well, NBC has moved on rather quickly, having already found the replacement they want to take over the program, and the choice might be a bit surprising to most folks.

They’ve chosen former President George W. Bush’s daughter, Jenna, to be the new host of the program.

Megyn Kelly was replaced by Jenna Bush Hager on Monday when Today aired a new episode of the third hour for the first time since the embattled host was ousted from the NBC morning show.

She did not appear however until the second half of the third hour, as the show kept the focus on the news out of Pittsburgh for much of the episode, where Savannah Guthrie was reporting for the network.

There was a brief mention of the recent events at the top of the program, when Hoda Kotb, Craig melvin and Al Roker kicked off the hour, but no mention of Kelly’s name.

‘Today, as you know, we are starting a new chapter in the third hour of our show,’ said Kotb.

‘And as it evolves we want you to know the entire Today family will continue to bring you informative and important stories just as we always have.

The announcement that Kelly would not be returning to the third hour of the Today program was made last Friday. After the announcement was made, Kelly’s attorney quickly released a statement that stressed Kelly was still employed by the network and that discussion of next steps were continuing.

What this means is that though she’s no longer on the air, Kelly is still being paid.

It’ll be interesting to see how this situation fully resolves itself and what ramifications the incident will have on Megyn Kelly’s career going forward.

VIDEO: Mike Rowe Delivers Summary Of Democratic Candidates’ Economic Agenda

Published

on

Mike Rowe, America’s favorite champion of the average, blue collar worker, is on a promotional tour for his new book, “The Way I Heard It,” and stopped by “Fox & Friends,” where he gave a summary of the economic agenda currently being pushed by the Democratic candidates running for president. Here’s what he had to say, via The Daily Wire: “When you have a half a million Americans sleeping out on the street today…and then you also have three people owning more wealth than the bottom half of American society, that is a moral and economic outrage,” said Sanders. “So if you are asking me, do I think we should demand that the wealthy start paying — the wealthiest top one-tenth of one percent — start paying their fair share of taxes…Yes, that’s exactly what I believe.” The hosts then played a clip of frontrunner Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), who is also running on an aggressive tax-the-rich plan. “Taxing income is not going to get you where you want to be the way taxing wealth does,” she said. “We need a wealth tax in order to make investments in the next generation.” Asked about his response to the Democrats’ various economic plans, particularly Sanders’ 97.5% tax on the 400 wealthiest Americans, Rowe said, “Yeah, okay. It’s a free country. Float ‘em. Fly ‘em. Run ‘em up the old flagpole — see who salutes.” He then offered a memorable summary of his takeaway from Tuesday’s debate. “Look, in the end you’ve got millionaires arguing with millionaires over who hates the millionaires the most,” said Rowe. Rowe went on to say, “And I guess it’s a conversation we’ll have, but I remember a couple of years ago, I took my meager staff over the Reagan Ranch … One of the stories they…

‘The View’ Co-Host Joy Behar Argues Politics With Stranger While On Vacation; Says Trump Is ‘Destroying The Planet’

Published

Joy Behar, co-host of “The View” so despises President Trump that she cannot seem to allow herself, or the rest of the human race, a break from constantly bashing and slamming the man, even while she’s supposedly taking a vacation. Behar, who recently took a trip to London, ended up getting into an argument over politics with a complete stranger, claiming Trump is “destroying the planet.” Via The Washington Times: “When I was in London, I was in the war rooms and I got into an argument with a Trump supporter,” she said, NewsBusters reported. “All he said to me is, ‘Why can’t you give him a chance the way we gave Obama a chance?’” Ms. Behar scoffed at the idea. “Give him a chance? He’s destroying the planet!” she said. “He’s destroying the democracy. He doesn’t know what he’s doing. He’s writing stupid letters to Erdogan. He’s killing people far away from us who did nothing but help us. Give him a chance? That’s the argument you’re giving me underground?” Getting into an argument with a stranger wasn’t the only excitement for Behar on her trip. She was apparently pickpocketed as well. “I got robbed at Harrods,” Behar recounted. “They stole my wallet. I was pickpocketed, yes.”
