Megyn Kelly's New Show is a 'Trump-Free Zone.' That Should Go Well

Earlier this year, NBC hired Megyn Kelly take over the third hour of the Today show, replacing Tamron Hall and Al Roker — who, by the way, were doing very well in the ratings (regularly beating “Kelly Ripa and Whatever Man She Hosted With”) — with a “friendly white lady.”

After bombing out with her Sunday night newsmagazine, where she embarrassed herself with a softball interview with Vladimir Putin and then embarrassed herself even more by interviewing Alex Jones before the newsmagazine faded into obscurity, Kelly has decided with her morning show not to focus on politics. It will be a “Trump-free” zone, i.e., “I’ve lost all credibility in the world of politics, so why don’t I interview the cast of Will & Grace now?”

She began her stint as a friendly white lady this morning, and it’s not going well.

And while she said she wanted to avoid politics, here’s one of the segments she’s running this a.m.:

Don’t tell me, Megyn. Let me guess! “It’s not about race, right?”

But before anyone tries to accept this watered-down, sanitized version of Megyn Kelly, Jon Oliver would like to remind you all of her past:

Conservatives dislike her, liberals dislike her, and she’s decided she’s not even going to cover the thing she’s best known for: Politics. I guess she wants to be Oprah now? That should go well.

Wise investment, NBC. Wise investment.
