Megyn Kelly reduced former ESPN host and hard-Left commentator Keith Olbermann to rubble after Olbermann derided her for giving cheer to Tucker Carlson.

The sequence of events leading to Kelly’s evisceration of Olbermann began when the hosts of “The View” mocked Carlson after his departure, prompting Kelly to tweet, “Not one of these women could solo host a show and get ratings. Not one. They are & will always be ensemble players. Their jealousy is on full display here, and ideological hatred too of course.”

Olbermann then attempted to mock Kelly, writing, “What would you know about successfully hosting a show? Fired by Fox, fired by NBC. You’re 0-for-2 and you couldn’t get a job cleaning the studio at The View.”

Kelly then blistered Olbermann on her podcast, The Megyn Kelly Show, stating, “Even Keith Olbermann was saying similar things, comparing Tucker to a Nazi. He also, for good measure, decided to tweet about me, because I said Tucker is gonna be better off without Fox, and said something to the effect of, ‘You got fired from Fox and NBC. What would you know about it?’”

“So, first of all, you misstate the circumstances of my departure from NBC, sir,” Kelly continued. “That’s all I’m allowed to say about it. And as for Fox, there were widely-reported facts that I was offered $100 million to stay there.”

Then Kelly went straight for the jugular: “But the record’s very clear that I left voluntarily because I wanted to raise my family — something that you don’t know anything about, because no one would marry you, and you have no children. You have a cold, lonely life in which you’ve become a bitter, bitter man, something I wouldn’t know anything about because my life is joyful and I’ve managed to raise my own children.”

“And someday, I hope you have that pleasure. But I don’t have high hopes it’s gonna happen,” she concluded.

Last December, after Olbermann devoted an entire podcast to revolve around accusing his former girlfriend, MSNBC’s Katy Tur, of physical abuse and other actions, Kelly declared, “It just leads him down a lane where he decided to tell about 25 secrets about Katy Tur. The segment is called something like ‘secrets I said I’d never tell.’ Well, that’s a great name for a segment, but it really makes you a terrible person.”
