Kelly File

Megyn Bails On Fox


cjones01052017

Megyn Kelly, who once had a segment on her show that Santa Claus is white, has bolted Fox News for NBC. If you hashtag her name on Twitter you’ll see how the Fox audience is taking it. It’s not pretty.

Megyn has been considered by many as the only real journalist in Fox’s opinion-heavy evening lineup with her show in a schedule with Bill O’Reilly and Trump water boy Sean Hannity. Many others have criticized Kelly for being as much of a right-wing troll as her cohorts.

This puts Fox, the ratings leader, in a jam as they now don’t have a female, one who challenged and fueded with Trump, to work in prime time. They’re still rebounding from losing Gretchen Carlson and Greta Van Susteren and the sexual harassment lawsuit against former Fox leader Roger Ailes (another Trump sycophant). Will the entire lineup of opinion shows at Fox now consist entirely of Trump ball washers? Well, yeah.

Fox wanted to keep Kelly so bad they were willing to pay her $20 million a year. Money wasn’t the only issue for her as she will now be hosting a daytime show and one in the evening on Sundays. She will have a more diverse audience at NBC instead of the conservative white guy fan base Fox attracts. It may take her awhile to find her steps and realize they shouldn’t be of the goose variety.

Kelly has a history of being a racist demagogue. She then attorney general Eric Holder wouldn’t investigate black Americans accused of criminal activity. She helped perpetuate the myth of Black Panthers intimidating voters at polling stations.

During the episode of “white Santa” she also said Jesus Christ was white. This is really important to these people. It’s really odd that people get up in arms over the race of a fictional character (Santa, not Jesus. We’ll argue that another day). It reminds me when the Council of Conservative Citizens freaked out that Idris Elba, a black actor, was cast to play a Norse god in Thor. What’s next? Boycott the Minnesota Vikings because they have black players?

Kelly also defended racist emails exchanged by officials in Ferguson, Missouri, which included a joke about a man seeking “welfare” for his dogs because they are “mixed in color, unemployed, lazy, can’t speak English and have no frigging clue who their Daddies are,” as normal. She argued that every workplace exchanges emails of that nature. My god what the hell are they swapping back and forth at Fox News? She might be in for a culture shock at NBC. Let’s see what happens when she sends Rachel Maddow an email gif of Obama as a monkey.

She has cried about an anti-cop thug mentality in black communities. Invited racist former cop and evidence planter Mark Fuhrman on her show to assist her in dismissing police shootings and brutality. I’m sure this daytime show is going to be a humdinger.

Fox News will now have to find another sleeveless blonde to be sandwiched between O’Reilly and Hannity. I can see why Fox would have to offer $20 million to entice a woman to assume that position.

Fascinated With Newt


cjones10302016

Be honest with yourself. You know you’ve always wanted to see Newt Gingrich waddle his naked, pink body strapped with nothing but a towel in a locker room. As a bonus I’ve also given you a nekkie Trump. Do they make Tic Tacs for eyeballs?

Newt Gingrich was interviewed by Fox News host Megyn Kelly Tuesday night and he said she was “fascinated with sex” while she was asking him about Donald Trump’s treatment of women. Nice.

Newt got testy, shook his finger at Kelly, and wanted her to say Bill Clinton is a sexual predator. He also said Clinton was disbarred in Arkansas which I want to point out is not true.

It’s kinda bizarre that Newt wants to talk about Clinton’s accusers what with his track record and all when it comes to infidelity. Trump, Giuliani, Newt, Roger Ailes…what is it with these guys, none of whom looks like a Sam Malone, and women? It seems it would behoove the Trump campaign, which is struggling with the women vote, to send out a surrogate who isn’t a HeSlut…less enough surrogates who try to push a woman around on live TV.

Kelly kept her cool and told Newt that she’s  “fascinated by the protection of women.” Newt might want to find another female to bully because it didn’t work with Kelly and Newt came off like a whiny baby. Maybe he should start with one who’s not smarter than he is. But Republicans love this kind of stuff.

Donald Trump loved it so much that he interrupted promoting his newest empty hotel in Washington, D.C. to praise Newt and he said “We don’t play games, Newt, right? We don’t play games.”

Trump has had issues with Kelly ever since the first Republican debate. He doesn’t like hard questions…or any questions not concerning how great he is. He famously said she was angry and had “blood coming out of her wherever.”

Kelly finished her interview with Newt by saying “You can take your anger issues and spend some time working on them, Mr. Speaker.” Newt has been angry since the 1990s when Bill Clinton was kicking his butt all over the place. He eventually had to resign from his role as Speaker of the House during the impeachment process when it was discovered that he too is a horn dog.

One other bizarre detail of this is that Newt went on to accuse Fox News of being part of the “biased media.” Newt is still on Fox News payroll as a paid political commentator. That’s a serious breach of ethics on Fox’s part as they’re interviewing a man they’re paying who isn’t just a Trump supporter, he’s on Team Trump.

Newt can keep competing with Giuliani for who can make the most outlandish statements. I really enjoy drawing him. He’s one of those guys I’ve never had trouble caricaturing. He’s as easy now as he was in 1994.

Trump Vs. Kelly


cjones01282016

Donald Trump is skipping the next GOP debate. He’s upset with debate moderator, and the host, Fox News.

He’s still sore Megyn Kelly asked him if making sexists, derogatory remarks toward women is presidential. How dare she. He feels it’s unfair. A lot of people have pointed out that he can’t handle Kelly and he’s afraid of her. Others say it’s more about Fox News, which he’s appeared on over 130 times since he’s announced and he appeared on Wednesday night. Fox News sent out a very snarky statement regarding Trump skipping their debate, which for a news organization, wasn’t very professional.

I don’t blame Trump for not being in love with Fox’s statement but I do think he’s afraid of intelligent women. Why do you think he marries super models and hangs out with Sarah Palin? Hillary Clinton, who withstood the Benghazi committee’s questioning for eleven hours, will eat Trump alive.

The biggest reason Trump is skipping the debate is that he wants to control the format. If anyone else skipped the debate it would hurt their exposure. For Trump, it’s increasing. Trump is controlling the format and the dialogue.

I posted a question on social media yesterday asking if I should draw on this topic, or the Bundy militia (not that I won’t do both). Some people brought up a very valid point that I shouldn’t give any exposure to Trump. I appreciate that anyone would believe I’m influential enough to have an impact on the national conversation. But Trump isn’t in the conversation…he is the conversation.

I get comments on the way I draw Trump’s hair. At first I felt it was a bit too much and it doesn’t really look anything like his hair, just a representative that he has ridiculous hair. But all the comments are positive and most of all, I found I don’t have to put a label on him. The hair is the label. Speaking of hair, Megyn Kelly got a haircut which meant I had to put a little more research into this cartoon.

My last two cartoons were kinda hard hitting so I wanted to tone it down a bit with my next one, thus I frighten my clients. While the hard hitting stuff on police shootings and anti-choice terrorists do very well on the internet, not always great for today’s newspapers which makes me sad. My next cartoon will probably be on the Bundy militia and I can’t promise how scary that will turn out. Stay tooned.

Here’s the rough.
