Former-Fox-News-host-turned-NBC-talk-show-host Megyn Kelly is officially unemployed and she remains wholly confident that she’ll be back on TV sooner rather than later.
“I don’t make any resolutions, but in terms of plans … you’ll definitely see me back on,” she said when asked Friday by a TMZ reporter about whether she’ll be back on TV soon.
She continued by noting that first she plans to get a new dog.
Cue left-wing tears in 3, 2, 1 …
In fact, the far-left have already been crying ever since NBC announced Friday that it’s reached a deal with the former host.
“The parties have resolved their differences, and Megyn Kelly is no longer an employee of NBC,” NBC announced in a statement to the media, roughly two and a half months after the network cancelled her morning talk show over allegedly offensive remarks she made about “blackface.”
JUST IN: Megyn Kelly and NBC have *finally* reached an exit agreement. It’s been 11 weeks since her show was canceled. Statement from NBC News: “The parties have resolved their differences, and Megyn Kelly is no longer an employee of NBC.”

Almost immediately after the cancellation of Kelly’s show in October, the controversial journalist hired a “bigwig lawyer” and began negotiating her departure from the network.
While the exact details of the deal she reached with NBC this week remain unclear, reports indicate she’ll be free to speak with other employers about work, and she’ll be leaving with the full amount that her original contract with NBC had entitled her to: $69 million.
NBC and @megynkelly have officially (and finally) parted ways. Kelly will get the remainder of her contract paid out, but will be subject to a non-disparagement clause, limiting what she can say about her time at NBC. More via @brianstelter and @TomKludt: https://t.co/lHcDvcXvvN

Leftists who resent the former host for suggesting last year that children should be allowed to wear “blackface” or “whiteface” costumes for Halloween were not pleased by the announcement.
“Hard to overstate what an own-goal this was. NBC hires a privileged Fox conservative with a history of stupid racist comments, and it takes her all of a year and a half to get fired for stupid racist comments. And they still had to pay her $69 million,” leftist Gary Legum kvetched on Twitter.
Those were false allegations, as Kelly’s “history of stupid racist comments” is in reality merely a reference to allegedly controversial remarks she’s made in the past that were not actually racist.
For instance, when the then-Fox host rightly noted as per the evidence in 2016 that deceased Ferguson thug Michael Brown had triggered the series of events that led to his death at the hands of a St. Louis police officer in 2014, she was falsely smeared as a “white supremacist.”
Look at the backlash to the latest announcement below:

So, Megyn Kelly proves herself a worthless racist asshole and gets fired, but then gets $69 million for her hurt feelings. Given that punditry is a fail-up profession in the U.S., what’s her next job?

Megyn Kelly leaves NBC with all of her $69 million contract intact. #Disgusting a racist hack gets this ridiculous sum when she was disliked by viewers and today federal workers are at food banks. #TrumpsAmericahttps://t.co/Uph0NogClu

Great hire, NBC: wasting dozens of millions on a racist barbie. Crazy how so many people predicted this exact outcome. Crazy how someone who spectacularly failed at their job walks away with this much money. https://t.co/hu6HToqtEn

Megyn Kelly said some racist shit and got paid 69 million for it. If that ain’t white privilege then what is

If these far-leftists feel this angry over the $69 million announcement, it’s unclear how much angrier they’ll feel when they find out that Kelly is fully intent on returning to TV this year.
