Megyn Kelly ‘Does Not Feel Hopeful About Unity’ After 2020 Election

by Jennifer Shea

Since the election, Megyn Kelly has been busy defending conservatives and Trump supporters on Twitter.

In just the past 24 hours, she has addressed New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s leadership. Then CNN personality Chris Cuomo’s retweets. Also, a video mocking Republicans. Plus an anti-Trump tweet by Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA). And a Daily Beast article on her failure to defend Roger Ailes.

Kelly Tweets New Podcast

Now Kelly has released a new episode of “The Megyn Kelly Show.” And the opening monologue is available on Twitter. 

In the monologue, Kelly says she’s not too optimistic about unity after this election. And she suggests that maybe Republicans shouldn’t focus on unity, anyway. 

“The Democrats don’t want unity,” Kelly said. “Maybe some in the center-left do. But AOC and The Squad? No. The political left on Twitter? No. Biden’s got real unity problems right in Democrat Central. And without cleaning that up, there’s no point in calling for brotherhood.”

Kelly raised a host of divisive, but possible, Democratic policy moves. What if Biden moves to pack the Supreme Court? Or what if Democrats push to defund the police? What about when Biden decrees critical race theory classes for federal agencies? 

“And what about the Trump supporters?” Kelly added. “They’re not game for the group hug, either. For four years, they have been called the dregs of society… Now that Biden’s won, those 71 million Republican voters are supposed to simply choose healing? And all that stuff the left said about them being absolutely awful? Well, forget about that.”

Unity vs. Liberty

Kelly also brought up the recent moves by Biden backers to compile the names of Trump supporters and blacklist them. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has tweeted demands for an archive of pro-Trump posts. And prominent Democrats have formed The Trump Accountability Project, a group whose website targets “those who elected him. Those who staffed his government. Those who funded him.”

The Biden supporters’ efforts ironically recall the blacklist of the McCarthy era, when people accused of associating with Communists were banned from employment.

“Look, it has gotten ugly on both sides these past four years,” Kelly said. “[But] whatever happens, we’re still living in the United States of America, the greatest country on Earth. Where, at least for now, you are technically free to hold your own opinion.”

She suggested that keeping those freedoms may require people to fight back against the Biden administration.

“Maybe unity isn’t the thing at all right now,” Kelly concluded. “Maybe liberty’s the thing.”
