The fact that last week’s Republican National Convention was a raging dumpster fire is no secret. With attendees practically trying to lynch Ted Cruz’s wife and conservative radio host Laura Ingraham sieg heiling the crowd, Donald Trump could have Melania’s speechwriter publicly executed and most of us would probably shrug it off as just another episode in the soap opera that is today’s modern GOP.
But you have to wonder what’s going on in the mind in some of the folks who watched the spectacle at home, especially Fox News viewers. It turns out some were actually offended by what they saw. No, I’m not talking about the blatant displays of xenophobia and calls to have Hillary executed. I’m talking about Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly’s scandalously exposed shoulders and arms.
This Wednesday, Twitter erupted in disgust over an outfit Kelly was wearing – a form-fitted spaghetti-strapped top that bared her shoulders, arms and upper chest (*gasp*).
“Megyn Kelly’s halter is not appropriate dress for a professional lady at the convention, especially an anchor,” wrote one user, according to The Wrap.
Here’s the outfit that caused the uproar:

According to some, Kelly, who reportedly endured sexual harassment from her now-fired boss Roger Ailes, looked like a prostitute:

Does Megyn Kelly have a pool party she needs to rush to after her convention report tonite? Her outfit suggests yes. pic.twitter.com/IzI3AeP0We

Can't @greta teach that freak not to dress like an escort?

Ugh. These people. Why don’t they just call for her to be stoned in a public square?
