Megyn Kelly pummeled the media Sunday night, demanding that they give up on the notion of Trump-Russia collusion.
Special counsel Robert Mueller over the weekend announced the findings of his investigation on the purported Russian collusion in the 2016 presidential election. The report did not find any collusion between the Donald Trump campaign and Russia. The investigation was conducted over a period of two years, and concluded Friday.
Following Mueller's report, Attorney General William Barr signed off on the report with a summary of conclusions, which he sent to the media as well as to congressional leaders.
For his part, President Trump celebrated the news on Twitter.
He wrote, "No Collusion, No Obstruction, Complete and Total EXONERATION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!"
What did Kelly say about the media?
Reacting to the news on social media, Kelly wrote, "Mueller: no evidence of collusion w/Russia. Now will the media who invested so much in this narrative accept it, remembering that they are not supposed to root for outcomes?"
"Or," she wrote, "will they hold on, looking for ways to save face on their earlier (wrong) predictions/coverage?"
Kelly followed her first viral tweet up with a second tweet, calling for the media to simply move on, and quit waiting for news to break that she simply doesn't feel will break.
Kelly added, "They will hold on — it will be the journo/punditry equivalent of 'he's going to call me, right? The reason he hasn't called is he must be really busy, or on a trip, or in the hospital. Just stay steady! It's not over!'"
"People, collusion is over," she insisted.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders also issued a response to the Russia investigation news following Trump's tweet.
She wrote, "A great day for America and for President @realDonaldTrump. After two years of wild anti-Trump hysteria, the President and his millions of supporters have been completely vindicated."
She later added, "Democrats and their liberal media allies for two years slandered President @realDonaldTrump for 'conspiring with Russia.' It was all a malicious, preposterous lie given wall to wall media coverage despite zero evidence. This should never again happen to an American President."
