In recent times, notable figures within the media have expressed a viewpoint that warrants the attention of the American populace.
During the recent broadcast of “The Megyn Kelly Show” on YouTube, the host, Megyn Kelly, voiced apprehensions regarding the potential negative consequences of the portrayal of Trump as a demonized figure, suggesting that it could potentially result in harm or more severe outcomes for him.
During a dialogue with her guest, Dan Bongino, a Republican radio presenter, Kelly expressed her apprehensions regarding the depiction of Trump and its possible intensification as the presidential primary competition progresses.
Kelly mentioned the exchange between former Fox News personality Tucker Carlson and President Trump during their August interview. “You heard Tucker asked Trump about it when he interviewed him. Whether Trump is worried, whether there’s a realistic possibility, the left is going to so melt down as his power rises, as he rises toward a second term … that they try to do something to him, God forbid, or that they try to do something to our country.”
Kelly referenced the protests and riots associated with the Black Lives Matter movement in 2020, along with instances of violence attributed to leftist groups. Additionally, she highlighted the Democratic Party and mainstream media’s attempts to amplify the significance of the violence at the Capitol on January 6, 2021, while attributing sole responsibility for it to Trump.
“You know that the riots we saw around BLM, the total overreaction we saw to basically everything surrounding Trump, and certainly the way they described January 6 as the new 9/11.
“All those things are going to culminate in some sort of, like, serious meltdown for our country,” Kelly warned.
“… [Trump] is so demonized to the point where I do worry for his safety,” Kelly stated, expressing concern.
” I think he’s been so — like, the left likes to use the term, ‘dehumanized’, ‘I feel dehumanized by this’ — is there anybody who’s been more dehumanized than Donald Trump?” she questioned.
“… Trump is ornery, and he’s a fighter, and he’s controversial, but he, too, is a man. He’s a human. He has a heart. He has a family. As I started this off by saying, I just think [Bongino’s] book this kind of example does a good job of putting layers on that so people can be reminded it’s real,” Kelly went on.
“Even though he’s very tough and he’s a fighter it doesn’t mean he’s incapable of being hurt and, God forbid, worse. So we need to, like, as you say, pump the brakes, make sure he’s protected,” she cautioned.
Kelly is not the only figure to express concern regarding the potential removal of Trump from office.
During the August discussion, Carlson posed direct inquiries to Trump regarding his apprehensions pertaining to a prospective assassination endeavor.
“It started with protests against you and then it moved to impeachment twice, and now indictment. Are you worried that they’re going to try and kill you?” Carlson inquired.
President Trump responded by characterizing them as “Savage animals. They are people that are sick.”

“Do you think Epstein killed himself?”
“Whatever happened to Mike Pence?”
“Do you think we’re moving toward Civil War?”
“Are you worried that they are going to try to kill you?”
Oh man this is going to be

In an episode of “The Adam Carolla Show” podcast in August, Carlson expressed his viewpoint candidly, asserting that there is a clear trajectory towards an act of assassination.
Bongino, a former Secret Service agent, has publicly expressed concerns on the significant level of “partisan animosity” aimed at Trump, highlighting apprehensions regarding his personal security.

Bernard Kerik, a former New York City Police Commissioner and author, joins the increasing number of individuals who possess insider knowledge and anticipate a potential assault targeting President Trump.
Following the raid conducted on former President Trump’s residence at the Mar-a-Lago Club in South Florida in August 2022, Bernard Kerik, a prominent figure, posted a tweet expressing his views. In his tweet, Kerik drew a parallel between this event and occurrences observed in certain developing nations, suggesting “And just like in other Third World countries, if today’s raid by Biden’s FBI does not stop Donald Trump from running for president in 2024, their next move will be Assassination.”

According to a 2018 report published by National Geographic titled “United States Secret Service: On the Front Line,” it was disclosed that former President Trump had been the intended target of an assassination attempt orchestrated by an Islamic State group. Fortunately, the Secret Service successfully thwarted this attack.
However, the challenges that President Trump currently confronts are more domestically oriented.
As stated by Kelly, the media has effectively dehumanized Trump to a degree where the current environment may be conducive to an assassination effort. This potential occurrence, albeit disturbing, should be a topic of concern for all American citizens, regardless of their political affiliations.
On Tuesday, Trump posted on Truth Social about further attempts by Democrats to harm him monetarily.
“I have a Deranged, Trump Hating Judge, who RAILROADED this FAKE CASE through a NYS Court at a speed never seen before, refusing to let it go to the Commercial Division, where it belongs, denying me everything, No Trial, No Jury. He made up this crazy “KILL TRUMP” decision, assigning insanely low values to properties, despite overwhelming evidence. AS AN EXAMPLE, HE VALUES THE MOST SPECTACULAR PROPERTY IN PALM BEACH, FLORIDA, MAR-A-LAGO, AT $18,000,000, WHEN IT IS WORTH POSSIBLY 100 TIMES THAT AMOUNT. His anger & hatred is politically motivated & unprecedented by those who watched! My actual Net Worth is MUCH GREATER than the number shown on the Financial Statements, a BIG SURPRISE to him & the Racist A.G., Letitia James, who campaigned for office on a get Trump Platform. While murderers roam the sidewalks of New York, my banks are happy, all loans are current, or paid off in full, sometimes early, with no defaults or problems of any kind. There is also an IRONCLAD DISCLAIMER CLAUSE!”
