Many Americans were upset over the performance of Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly during the GOP debate last week, accusing her of attacking presidential candidate Donald Trump and otherwise showing bias throughout the event.
On Wednesday evening, she made a major announcement on her show that has a lot of people wondering what’s going on.
It’s been a hard week for Kelly, as she’s watched a petition remove her from the air gain massive support while fielding harsh attacks from Trump and his supporters. Many people are wondering if any of that has to do with the reason she suddenly announced that she’s taking a week-and-a-half vacation from work, effective immediately.
The Gateway Pundit reported that Twitter erupted with comments after Kelly’s unexpected announcement, and it wasn’t exactly a good thing for the veteran reporter.
@megynkelly And a lousy performance as a so-called moderator can ruin one's career. Think about that while you're on vacation, dear.

Mediaite reported her ratings didn’t suffer, but that was a few days after the debates and blow up by Trump and his comments. Anyways, you get the point. As you can see, her performance at the debate didn’t sit too well with people, and the sudden announcement could very well be linked to the backlash she’s received.
How do you feel about her taking time off? Is there another reason?
