Megyn Kelly expressed concerns that the left’s demonization of former President Donald Trump could eventually lead to his assassination as Washington elites slowly realize he could win the 2024 election and take back the White House.
During an episode of “The Megyn Kelly Show” on YouTube, Kelly was joined by former Secret Service agent and author of “The Gift of Failure,” Dan Bongino, as the pair discussed the portrayal of Trump and its potential escalation.
“You heard Tucker asked Trump about it when he interviewed him,” Kelly said, referring to an August interview between Trump and Tucker Carlson.
“Whether Trump is worried, whether there’s a realistic possibility, the left is going to so meltdown as his power rises, as he rises toward a second term … that they try to do something to him, God forbid, or that they try to do something to our country,” she added.
Citing the widespread Black Lives Matter riots of 2020 and the media’s efforts to push the “Capitol incursion of January 6, 2021” narrative, Kelly noted how the blame is being place squarely on Trump.
“You know that the riots we saw around BLM, the total overreaction we saw to basically everything surrounding Trump, and certainly the way they described January 6 as the new 9/11,” Kelly said.
“All those things are going to culminate in some sort of, like, serious meltdown for our country,” she said.
“… [Trump] is so demonized to the point where I do worry for his safety,” Megyn Kelly said, joining concerns of other high profile figures about Trump being targeted for assassination.
“I think he’s been so — like, the left likes to use the term, ‘dehumanized,’ ‘I feel dehumanized by this’ — is there anybody who’s been more dehumanized than Donald Trump?” she asked.
“… Trump is ornery, and he’s a fighter, and he’s controversial, but he, too, is a man. He’s a human. He has a heart. He has a family,” Kelly continued.
“As I started this off by saying, I just think [Bongino’s] book this kind of example does a good job of putting layers on that so people can be reminded it’s real,” Kelly added.
“Even though he’s very tough and he’s a fighter, it doesn’t mean he’s incapable of being hurt and, God forbid, worse,” Kelly said.
“So we need to, like, as you say, pump the brakes, make sure he’s protected,” she warned.
Kelly isn’t the first high-profile figure to voice concerns about Trump being taken out.
Last month, Tucker Carlson voiced fears that the deep state establishment is plotting to assassinate Trump because everything they have done to bring him down has failed.
“If you begin with criticism, then you go to protest. Then you go to impeachment. Now you go to indictment, and none of them work. What’s next?” Carlson asked.
“I mean, you know, graph it out, man! We’re speeding toward assassination, obviously, and no one will say that!” he said.
During an interview with Trump, Carlson asked:
“It started with protests against you and then it moved to impeachment twice, and now indictment. Are you worried that they’re going to try and kill you?”
“They’re savage animals,” Trump answered. “They are people that are sick.”

“Do you think Epstein killed himself?”
“Whatever happened to Mike Pence?”
“Do you think we’re moving toward Civil War?”
“Are you worried that they are going to try to kill you?”
Oh man this is going to be 🔥
Meanwhile, Dan Bongino also expressed fears about intense “partisan hatred” directed at Trump and expressed concerns about his safety.

Former New York City Police Commissioner and author Bernard Kerik also predicted some kind of attack on Trump.
Following the raid on Trump’s home in the Mar-a-Lago Club last year, Kerik tweeted:
“And just like in other Third World countries, if today’s raid by Biden’s FBI does not stop Donald Trump from running for president in 2024, their next move will be Assassination.”

A National Geographic report from 2018, titled “United States Secret Service: On the Front Line,” revealed Trump has been the target of an assassination by an Islamic State group, which the Secret Service later foiled.
