Me-me-me-me-meeeeeee. That's the donald trump theme song.

As a retired broadcast journalist, I’d tell him - you get better press coverage when you do better things.

Like it! Like it a LOT!

Dayum he's good!

I bet Gillum has a BIG future ahead.

Gillum/O’Rourke? Harris/Gillum? Just thinking of tickets to come...

I particularly like the “ran home to Fox News...” part.

What a sin. All I can think of is how hard his mother worked to build him that beautiful body.

And to have it defiled like this... her beautiful baby...

As a mother, this is so painful to see. My son is 26. And I’ve often reminded him - “you’ll ALWAYS be my baby.”

“I’ll love you forever, I’ll like you for always, as long as I’m living, my baby you’ll be.”

Must be some other feral hogs then...

The only ones I’ve been noticing are the ones USING the AR-15s.

Pizza? Where? Pizza!

That one got me, too. Very dear.

Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood. Looks like that little boy found one of the helpers who Mr. Rogers’ mom advised him to look for in a time of trouble.

She reads COLD on the air. ICE COLD.

That's just who she is, I guess, a TV Ice Queen - when the medium craves warm and cozy and nonthreatening, especially in weekday mornings when friendly approachable people like Savannah Guthrie and Hota and Kathy Lee, and Katie Couric before them, reigned supreme. I don't watch Pox Noise, NEVER have, WASN'T a Megyn Kelly fan, and I'm STILL not a Megyn Kelly fan.

She's NOT relatable, but she sure does seem to like to show skin and shape.

I'm just glad nobody at NBC tried to pawn her off on MSNBC the way they did with Greta Van Susteren - who was an EQUALLY poor fit. She disappeared after 13 weeks. Megyn lasted 13 months.

Good Riddance. You never fit at NBC, and you were never going to fit in there. You had this superior and combative attitude that alienates both viewers and coworkers, and requires the hottest of hot ratings and TOTAL time slot dominance to be able to excuse. You literally have to be the 800-pound gorilla in the room, the way Johnny Carson was. NOBODY touched him because his "Tonight Show" was responsible for almost obscenely large advertising earnings for NBC. A FULL QUARTER of ALL of NBC's annual revenue was generated by Carson's "Tonight Show." ONE out of EVERY FOUR dollars that network brought in during his heyday was generated by HIM and HIS SHOW. And you NEVER got that far, Megyn. Never even got close, which didn't surprise many of us outside of the programming "geniuses" at that network. I guess it must have been the blonde hair, the tight skimpy wardrobe, and that perplexingly sharp-angled front-of-a-locomotive jaw line, maybe?

I never got the much-vaunted physical appeal that Megyn Kelly had. She still leaves me cold. I guess the Pox Noise demographic of aging horny love-lorn white men who dominate their viewership thought she was the bee's knees...

About calimary

Female. Retired. Wife-Mom-Grandma. Approx. 30 years in broadcasting, at least 20 of those in news biz. Taurus. Loves chocolate - preferably without nuts or cocoanut. Animal lover. Rock-hound from pre-school age. Proud Democrat for life. Ardent environmentalist and pro-choicer. Hoping to use my skills set for the greater good. Still married to the same guy for 40+ years. Probably because he's a proud Democrat, too. Penmanship absolutely stinks, so I'm glad I'm a fast typist! I will always love Hillary and she will always be my President.
