Megyn Kelly just stepped in it.
She picked a new fight with Donald Trump.
And it was the worst mistake of her life.
Kelly was furious when Donald Trump attacked Al Franken over the photograph of him groping a female broadcaster’s breasts while she innocently slept.
The Al Frankenstien picture is really bad, speaks a thousand words. Where do his hands go in pictures 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 while she sleeps? …..

Yet Kelly raged at Trump over allegations made during the 2016 campaign that he had groped and sexually assaulted women.
“Friday, NBC morning host Megyn Kelly said President Donald Trump was “tone deaf” to criticize Sen. Al Franken (D-N) over inappropriate sexual behavior.
Kelly said, “We could soon have not one, but two sitting U.S. senators accused of sexual assault. Not to mention our president. Fear not, women of America, all is well. All is — it’s fine. Senator Al Franken of Minnesota has been accused of forcefully kissing radio personality Leeann Tweeden without her consent and also groping her breasts while she was asleep during a USO tour to the Middle East in 2006. Two years before Senator Franken ran for office. This picture appears to show Mr. Franken’s hands hovering over her breasts.”
She continued, “Last night President Trump felt the need to weigh in on this tweeting ‘The Al Frankenstein picture is really bad speaks a thousand words.’ He went on to ask, ‘Where do his hands go in picture two, three, four, five and six while she sleeps?’ And then this from Mr. Trump, ‘And to think just last week he was lecturing anyone who would listen about sexual harassment and respect for women.’ I Know. Who that has been accused of sexual assault would have the gall to preach to others about sexual misconduct?. How infuriating that would be. How tone deaf, Mr. President.”
But unlike Franken – who admitted to some of the charges and whose creepy actions were caught on camera – Trump denied the allegations and proclaimed them as lies.
To many Americans, the accusations reeked of politics.
They had conveniently surfaced just one month before Election Day – and no one has heard from the accusers since.
But Kelly has no room to talk.
NBC just removed a senior executive over claims of sexual harassment.
And Kelly – whose two shows at NBC were ratings bombs – is trying to jump start her career by resurrecting her feud with Donald Trump.
Critics believe she is trying to bait Trump into a twitter fight to drive media and viewer buzz to her show.
But Trump has so far ignored her.
Will picking another fight with Trump be Kelly’s biggest mistake yet?
