Megyn Kelly Makes Today Debut: ‘I am Kind of Done With Politics for Now’

She’s moderated presidential primary debates. Grilled Senators and Representatives. Reported on the hot button issues of the day.

But all of that is apparently in the past for Megyn Kelly. During her Today Show debut, the former Fox News anchor made it clear she’s pivoting to human interest.

In her Megyn Kelly Today open Monday, the host sarcastically announced that she’d be dissecting the latest Tweet from President Donald Trump.

“Oh no! We would not do that,” Kelly said. “We will not be doing that. The truth is, I am kind of done with politics for now.”

The proclamation was met with cheers from her studio audience.

“I know!” Kelly said. “You know why, right? We all feel it. It’s everywhere. It’s everywhere. And it’s gotten so dark. I’m just, like, over it.”

The question remains whether someone who has been so closely identified with politics can successfully transition out of that arena. But Kelly says she’s going to try.

“Some fun!” Kelly said. “That’s what we want to be doing.”
