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.

Fauci Appears to Downplay Concern Over Omicron Variant

But days after similar statements arrived from South African doctors who were actually treating patients.

Published

For months and months, Dr. Anthony Fauci has been earning his nickname of “Dr. Doom”, as he continues to expound on the threat of COVID-19 and its variants with increasingly alarming language.

The sheer gloom of Fauci’s alleged revelations have been cause for criticism, particularly among conservative like Senator Rand Paul, who has quite the penchant for excoriating the spectacled epidemiologist.

But now, as the omicron variant continues to spread in the US and beyond, Fauci’s demeanor has taken a turn toward the trite.

President Joe Biden’s chief medial adviser, Dr. Anthony Fauci, told CNN’s “State of the Union” that scientists need more information before drawing conclusion’s about omicron’s severity.

Reports from South Africa, where it emerged and is becoming the dominant strain, suggest that hospitalization rates have not increased alarmingly.

“Thus far, it does not look like there’s a great degree of severity to it,” Fauci said. “But we have really got to be careful before we make any determinations that it is less severe or it really doesn’t cause any severe illness, comparable to delta.”

Fauci wasn’t ready to lift any travel restrictions just yet, however.

Fauci said the Biden administration is considering lifting travel restrictions against noncitizens entering the United States from several African countries. They were imposed as the omicron variant exploded in the region, but U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has blasted such measures as “travel apartheid.”

“Hopefully we’ll be able to lift that ban in a quite reasonable period of time,” Fauci said. “We all feel very badly about the hardship that has been put on not only on South Africa but the other African countries.”

Americans have long felt as though they’ve been in the waning stages of the coronavirus pandemic as a whole, and this latest news of weakening variants could be seen as one of the final nails in the viral coffin.

‘RUST’ SHOOTING: Alec Baldwin Not Out of The Woods Yet, Says Santa Fe District Attorney

Baldwin has suggested that he won’t be charged, but the local DA has other ideas.

Published

on

The story surrounding the shooting death of cinematographer Halya Hutchins continues to grow stranger by the day, and a district attorney in New Mexico just dropped a major bombshell in the direction of Alec Baldwin.

Baldwin was rehearsing for a scene when the firearm he was holding discharged live ammunition, killing Hutchins and injuring others.  The gun somehow had a live round in it, despite there being a number of ethical and legal reasons why this should not have been possible.

To further confuse things, Baldwin has wildly suggested that he never pulled the trigger of the gun – something that experts are going to have to find a way to prove in order to clear Baldwin’s culpability.

Now, a local litigator has suggested that Baldwin should be prepared for the worst.

On Friday, First Judicial District Attorney Mary Carmack-Altwies clarified that it is still very possible for Alec Baldwin to be “criminally culpable” in Hutchins’ death depending on what the investigation yields.

“Certain individuals may be criminally culpable for his/her actions and/or inactions on the set of Rust,” Carmack-Altwies told Deadline.

Carmack-Altwies asserted that she will “exercise my prosecutorial discretion to its fullest, including filing charges that are supported by probable cause.”

The possibilities are numerous.

The district attorney further clarified that “everyone” handling firearms on the set of Rust had a duty to follow safety protocols.

“Everyone involved in the handling and use of firearms on the set had a duty to behave in a manner such that the safety of others was protected, and it appears that certain actions and inactions contributed to this outcome,” Carmack-Altwies the attorney said.

During the interview in which Baldwin suggested that he never pulled the trigger, he also insinuated that he’d spoken with the local sheriff’s department, and that there was some sort of understanding between he and them regarding the lack of charges to be brought.
