On Wednesday, Megyn Kelly appeared on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show", where she discussed the lead-up to her decision to leave Fox News.

In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Kelly said that while she enjoyed covering a wide range of stories as a reporter at Fox, when she got her own show, her coverage became much more political. "You know, he is who he is, and he has enough attention, and he has his Twitter account and he has ways to get his message across... and I don't want to give him a platform because it just validates him". The talk show host also said she feels he is unsafe for her "personally as a gay woman", and for the country and world at large. "I don't want him on the show", Ellen said on her show. Along with the show, DeGeneres is also known for movies like "Finding Nemo" and "Finding Dory". "While I will greatly miss my colleagues at Fox, I am delighted to be joining the NBC News family and taking on a new challenge", Kelly said, according to Fox News.

Kelly then asked if DeGeneres would refuse him. "Just as I was sort of wondering if [primetime news] was where I wanted to be and how I wanted to live, the universe came and shone a light, and it was clear to me what I wanted to do".

And today, on top of the already-planned four spinoff series, Entertainment Weekly confirmed a fifth is in the works . While that does not give us much to work with it does create some hype around the upcoming Game of Thrones spin-off.

Megyn also explained why, after 12 years working for Fox News, she chose to quit the conservative news station.

DeGeneres, however, quickly said she wouldn't - and her reason why is simple. Megyn hasn't had the best relationship with President Trump either.
