Former Fox News anchor and ex-NBC News host Megyn Kelly took to Twitter on Thursday, January 7, to praise President Donald Trump's latest videotaped statement from the White where he condemned the January 6 attack on the Capitol Building and also seemed to concede the presidential election, acknowledging that he will be a one-term leader. 

"Good statement. Late, but, well - relieved he did it. I don’t know about you guys, but I feel a sense of melancholy," Kelly wrote, retweeting POTUS's statement. 



 

 

Many of Kelly's followers spoke up in the comments section, agreeing with the conservative pundit and sharing her sentiment. "Feeling sad too," one wrote while another said, "It felt similar to how I felt watching the events of 9/11." A third commented, "Melancholy, too......my heart hurts for him and his family!" One more quipped, "Yes. Same here. Melancholy is a good word for it."

Another remarked, "Better late than never. Agreed with the feeling of melancholy." One more commented, "I don't think it's late. It happened right when it was supposed to." A commenter tweeted, "Heartsick. Just heartsick."



 

 



 

 



 

 



 

 



 

 



 

 



 

 

However, there were those who could not get behind the president's words. "Melancholy? No, I don't see it," one of them said, while another wrote, "Too little and way too late." One more commented, "More than a little late.." A commenter tweeted, "'Melancholy'???!! I feel a sense of RAGE!!!" The next remarked, "I’m exhausted! Drained." 

One of them said, "Yeah this needed to be months ago. Only now, at the end can we seem Presidential." Another reacted with, "Melancholy? I thought he was gonna bust out laughing at a couple points." One more wrote, "I feel a sense of his lawyers wrote this to try and keep him out of jail." A person said, "He needed a few more of these scripted speeches in 2020"



 

 



 

 

 



 

 



 

 



 

 



 

 



 

 

 



 

 



 

 

Thursday, January 7, was the first time that Trump conceded the 2020 election, stopping just short of congratulating his opponent, President-elect Joe Biden. In his statement, he admitted that he had exhausted all his means to overthrow the election results, which culminated in a violent attempt at insurrection at the US Capitol a day earlier. 

“Like all Americans, I am outraged by the violence, lawlessness and mayhem,” he said. “America is and must always be a nation of law and order. The demonstrators who infiltrated the Capitol have defiled the seat of American democracy. To those who engaged in the acts of violence and destruction, you do not represent our country. And to those who broke the law, you will pay.”

He added that he would focus his final days in office on ensuring a smooth transition of power. “We have just been through an intense election and emotions are high,” he said. “But now tempers must be cooled and calm restored. We must get on with the business of America. Now Congress has certified the results. A new administration will be inaugurated on Jan. 20. My focus now turns to ensuring a smooth, orderly and seamless transition of power. This moment calls for healing and reconciliation."
