Ever since Megyn Kelly’s “Today” morning show has premiered on NBC, ratings for the program have continued to plummet. After longtime “Today” show host Matt Lauer was fired last week for sexual misconduct, however, Kelly was hoping that everyone would forget about this and that NBC would award her his anchor slot.
That’s why it came as bad news to her when President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski spoke out to remind everyone what a failure she is.
Breitbart reported that Lewandowski and David Bossie, co-authors of the new book Let Trump Be Trump: The Inside Story of His Rise to the Presidency, told SiriusXM hosts Alex Marlow and Steve Bannon that they ditched Kelly’s morning show on Tuesday to appear on Tuesday morning’s Breitbart News Daily instead.
“You got yourselves booked on Megyn Kelly today, and then you canceled on it,” Marlow said. “It’s all over the Internet now. I think it’s a brilliant P.R. move. I don’t know how this happened.”
“We’d rather be with you guys!” Lewandowski exclaimed. “Plus your ratings are ten times higher than hers, don’t worry.”
“I’ll tell you, NBC had promised us that they would do certain things if we came on Meet the Press and the Today show yesterday,” Bossie explained. “To be quite honest, they didn’t live up to their end when it came to Sunday Night Football.
“That had nothing to do with the Megyn Kelly thing, but we don’t feel guilty about it,” he continued. “We got double-booked, and we’re here instead. That’s life sometimes.”
“Megyn Kelly is getting the lowest ratings in more than a decade for the Today show, okay?” Lewandowski pointed out, much to Kelly’s humiliation. “Seven people are watching it right now, and you got 20 million listeners over here. I’ll take my chances with Let Trump Be Trump right here, baby.”
Lewandowski added that this media strategy is consistent with the “very cocky” tone of Let Trump Be Trump, and, indeed, with the tone of the campaign which Bossie and Lewandowsky chronicled.
“This is MAGA,” he declared. “I think it’s going to flip 20 percent of the Trump-haters.”
This comes after NBC executives shut Kelly down by saying that they don’t see her as a “viable savior” for NBC after Lauer’s firing due to her low ratings. Clearly, they won’t be letting her anywhere near Lauer’s coveted anchor chair!
