Comments Off on Megyn Kelly Riding Trump’s Coattails

I’m really exhausting of all of the publicity Megyn Kelly is seeking to pump up her awareness at the expense of Donald Trump.  And the rest of the media is helping her as they have her as guests on their shows.  The latest I saw was The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. I don’t have […]

I get some very interesting calls on occasion, to put it politely.  Sometimes you can tell someone is not going to hire you.
