Megyn Kelly set the hosts of “The View” straight after they publicly celebrated the announcement that Tucker Carlson was out at Fox News.
A fired ex-CNN media critic posted a video of the celebration with the caption:
“The studio audience at The View broke out in applause when Tucker Carlson’s ouster was announced.
“Then the co-hosts did a wave and led the crowd in singing ‘Goodbye.’”

A disgusted Megyn Kelly said: “Not one of these women could solo host a show and get ratings. Not one.
“They are and will always be ensemble players.
“Their jealousy is on full display here, and ideological hatred too, of course.”

Kelly later admonished Fox News on her show, saying the network made a terrible move.
“This is a terrible move by Fox and it’s a great thing for Tucker Carlson,” she said.
“I don’t know what drove Fox News to make this decision and it was clearly Fox News’ decision because they’re not letting him say goodbye.
“That’s my supposition that’s not inside knowledge, but this the irony here is that how
“They get rid of Tucker… talk about misjudging your audience yet again.
“I still have great relationships many many viewers are now my fans on this show and he’s the only reason they watch, a lot of them, Tucker’s the only reason a lot of people still watch Fox News.
“I don’t know the actual circumstances but the fact that he said this on Friday night before he signed off suggests to me this was a management decision.”
I always had a blast doing Tucker Carlson’s show, challenging but always fair interviews, nothing off limits, and the excitement my readers got from it was 2nd only to Rush reading a column on air. His show has been a great service to the country.
