Megyn Kelly’s at it again!

The failed morning show host is facing harsh criticism on social media over a tweet she wrote attacking Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris for visiting Jacob Blake, the Wisconsin man who was paralyzed from the waist down after being shot seven times by police.

During her visit to Blake’s hospital room this week, Harris said she was “proud of him and how he is working through his pain.” But apparently her demonstration of empathy towards a victim of police gun violence proved too controversial for Kelly, who lashed out on Twitter with the old “Black men are sexual predators” line.

“PROUD of him?” Kelly tweeted. “He’s accused of breaking into a sleeping woman’s house, sexually assaulting her, humiliating her & later returning to harass her. Then the cops she called for help say he resisted arrest, assaulted them & went for his knife. How about a word for his victim, Senator?”

According to the Wisconsin Department of Justice’s Division of Criminal Investigation, a police officer shot Blake in the back after responding to a call from a woman who said that her boyfriend wouldn’t leave her house.

Officer Rusten Sheskey opened fire on Blake, shooting him seven times as he walked to his car. Inside the car was a knife. The knife was not in Blake’s possession or even within arm’s reach. And the shooting was witnessed by Blake’s three children.

The sexual assault Kelly seems to be referring to are allegations made against Blake earlier in the year that have absolutely nothing to do with him being shot by police in front of his children or with Harris telling him she was “proud” of how he was “working through the pain” of being paralyzed.

Of course, Kelly has never been known for ability to understand nuance or report facts. Also, she’s racist. These three things combined may help to explain her inability to separate a Black man’s alleged criminal past with him being shot by police seven times in front of his kids in an unrelated matter.

Twitter wasn’t having any of her bullsh*t.

Interestingly, this is actually the second time Kelly has attacked Blake on Twitter. The first time was last month when she falsely claimed he was “armed” with a “KNIFE” when he was gunned down.

“Jacob Blake was armed with a KNIFE when cops shot him says Wisconsin AG,” Kelly lied.

Weird, huh? It’s almost like she has some sort of personal issue with this guy.
