(FreedomBeacon.com)- Megyn Kelly, the former Fox News anchor who famously butted heads with candidate President Donald Trump in 2016, has returned to the world of political commentary and news. In her Megyn Kelly Podcast, the conservative-leaning commentator caused a stir by refusing to accept the lie that the January 6 protests in Washington, D.C., were a violent insurrection.
During a recent episode of her podcast, Kelly said that “a faction turned” and added that there was “no question” that the media represented the protest as much worse than it actually was.
If it’s obvious to someone who wasn’t even on the Trump train, then shouldn’t this be obvious to everybody?
Kelly said that everyone has seen the video footage of someone screaming at the cops of defecating on the floor of the United States Capitol. She added that she believes lawmakers were “understandably” afraid, but that the rest of the crowd was being tarred by the actions of a bad bunch within the group.
The Hill, which was once considered conservative-friendly but is increasingly leaning towards the far left, dwelled on the death of five people during the riot, including one Capitol Police Officer – but the outlet didn’t mention that the police officer died of a heart condition unrelated to the protest. The Hill also failed to acknowledge that one protester, who did not pose a danger to anybody and was not engaging in violent activity, was shot and killed.
Her name was Ashli Babbitt.
Kelly noted that while some people were there to cause violence and trouble, it doesn’t mean that that’s what the entire crowd was there for.
“So they got tarred by the actions of some losers” who chose violence, she said. She also argued that mainstream media outlets purposely tied the political rhetoric of President Trump denying that he lost the election because of fraud with “what we saw that day.”
If even Megyn Kelly can see it, then surely CNN’s most ardent anti-Trumpers can see it, too. They presumably know that they’re lying…
