Trump indicted: Megyn Kelly blasts ‘double standard’ of political cancel culture

Media personality Megyn Kelly called Tuesday’s arraignment of former President Donald Trump a political “double standard.”

During her SiriusXM The Megyn Kelly Show, Kelly questioned, in comparison, the lack of accountability under which the family of President Joe Biden and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have been held.

“Why don’t we know what Joe Biden did with Hunter Biden? Why don’t we know how he’s been compromised financially with respect to the doings of his son? Why isn’t Hunter Biden under arrest?” Kelly blasted. “In the case of Joe Biden, it’s because they won’t investigate. They have refused, refused to look into him in this relationship. And in the case of Hunter Biden, we have no answers. We don’t know why.”

“[Clinton’s] been using lawyers to do her dirty work forever, and we just generally haven’t had a practice of criminalizing the behavior of somebody in her position,” Kelly added. “Yes, we’ve sniffed around the lawyers from time to time, but this is, everything with [Trump] is different.”

Kelly said she expects Trump’s indictment will only help him politically but called it “horrible.”

I think it’s horrible,” Kelly said. “It’s horrible for the country. And it’s gonna be horrible for him to go through. And it’s going to be horrible for us to go through.”

Trump faces multiple criminal charges connected to alleged hush money payments made to porn star Stormy Daniels in 2016.

The former president also faces other legal challenges related to classified documents being held at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.

“I can’t get past — it’s Trump, that’s why. I’m not defending. If he got a subpoena and he had documents, that’s not OK. As a lawyer, you don’t have to persuade me. You’re supposed to treat subpoenas very respectfully,” Kelly said. “It’s just so aggravating because [Clinton’s] gotten away with so much.”


“It’s hard to get worked up about the Donald Trump subpoena. That’s where I am on it. It’s really hard to get worked up because it’s a double standard,” she added.

The indictment and Tuesday’s arraignment mark the first time a former U.S. president has been criminally charged, setting the stage for what could be an unprecedented trial as Trump seeks a return to the White House in 2024.
