After GOP front-runner presidential Donald Trump cancelled his rally in Chicago Friday night — despite assurances from police that there was no threat — Fox News host Megyn Kelly put the blame solely on the protesters at the event by whining that the candidate’s free speech rights were being taken away.
Without noting the number of protesters who have been brutalized and hauled away from previous Trump events, the Fox host wondered if protesters were going about it the wrong way.
Over footage from outside the rally location, Kelly noted, “All eyes, for the moment, are on Donald Trump and how he handles this situation in Chicago.”
“His First Amendment free speech rights have been shut down,” she claimed. “The right of those to listen to him, and as that one gentleman put it so well: ‘I just want to hear him for myself, wanna hear him for myself.’ That was shut down by folks who have an agenda — and that’s fine. You can oppose Donald Trump. Go for it. ”
“But, is this the way?” Kelly scolded. “Is this the way to shut down the ability of Chicagoans and those, in some cases, who have traveled for miles and miles and waited for hours and hours to get in, to have their say and hear him for themselves. For all these people know, they weren’t Trump supporters. Maybe they would have walked away saying, ‘You know what? He’s not for me.’ We’ll never know now.”

Boris Johnson ‘tremendously humiliated’ Donald Trump on a global scale at G-7 meeting: CNN analyst
United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson was one of President Donald Trump's favorite people to take over for Theresa May when she resigned this summer. But Johnson also mocked the U.S. president and humiliated him on a global scale, said New York Magazine reporter Olivia Nuzzi.
During a panel discussion on CNN Sunday, CNN's Ryan Lizza opened by saying that Johnson is in a tight spot as he's trying to negotiate Brexit while serving as an international leader to the G-7. Johnson also needs to negotiate a trade deal with Trump, but he clearly is going about it in the worst possible way.
Black MSNBC host schools Joe Walsh on N-word tweets being racist: ‘Hard to put the toothpaste back in’
Former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) is like a lighter version of President Donald Trump, said Republican strategist Shermichael Singleton. But MSNBC host Kendis Gibson couldn't help but ask Walsh about his history of racism.
In an interview after Walsh's announcement, Gibson asked hard questions about Walsh's history of racism. Walsh profusely apologized to former President Barack Obama, who Walsh waged war against during his tenure in the White House. While Wash was not a supporter of the racist birther campaign that Trump perpetuated, Wash does have a history of using racist terms on Twitter.
