Megyn Kelly is going on vacation. And despite what people think of the Fox News host and star of The Kelly File, it really seems like she needs the break.
"It's been an interesting week. A long six months, without a vacation for yours truly, do you know that? It's been six months since I've had a vacation. Just ask my assistant," Megyn Kelly announced on Thursday. "So I'll be taking the next week and a half off, spending some time with my husband and my kids, trying to relax."
Kelly co-moderated the recent GOP debate, and was the brunt of an incredibly tasteless comment two days later.
"I don't have a lot of respect for Megyn Kelly—she's a lightweight," Donald Trump said. "She gets out and she starts asking me all sorts of ridiculous questions and, you know, you could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever."
Yes, Megyn Kelly needs a vacation.

"The big challenge is trying to put down the Electronica and unplug it," she continued during her on-air vacation announcement, holding up her cell phone before asking the audience. "Can you do it?
"When you go on vacation, I am going to try to look at my little one's faces and go for bike rides and play at the beach and not look at you," she said. "And when I see you back here on the 24th, we'll pick it all up again. Have a great week. See you soon."
Donald Trump's campaign office issued a statement about the Megyn Kelly "blood coming out of her wherever" comment after it caused quite an outrage.
"Mr. Trump made Megyn Kelly look really bad—she was a mess with her anger and totally caught off guard. Mr. Trump said 'blood was coming out of her eyes and wherever,' meaning nose, but wanted to move on to more important topics. Only a deviant would think anything else."
The day after Trump's comment, Megyn Kelly addressed it on the air.
"You may have heard that there was a dustup between yours truly and presidential contender Donald Trump. Mr. Trump was upset with a question I asked him at the debate last week about his electability and specifically comments he had made in the past about women," she said.
Whether you do or don't like Megyn Kelly, you have to admit she needs this vacation. Hopefully she is successful at tuning out all forms of media, and can simply enjoy this time away with her husband and her children.
Do you think Donald Trump's statement was the catalyst for her sudden getaway?
