NEW YORK — Megyn Kelly advises new Mayor Eric Adams to replace Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg because Bragg ordered his prosecutors to go easy on many nonviolent criminals.

Asked by attorney Arthur Aidala on “The Power Hour” on AM 970 what advice she would give the new mayor, the former Fox News host said, “Fire Alvin Bragg.”

Kelly, who has lived in the city for 17 years and is raising her three kids here, said, “This guy is out of control. He is an actual threat to New Yorkers.”

The lawyer, whose career at NBC ended when she defended blackface during a Halloween segment and who once said that Santa Claus was white, said, “This guy is going to single-handedly ruin the city, even worse than Bill de Blasio. No one made him king.”

Kelly, who has her own company, Devil May Care Media, said, “Most politicians are awful … not so smart upstairs.”

Perhaps Aidala should have pointed out to the former broadcast starlet that Hizzoner and the DA are both elected officials.

One cannot “fire” the other.

Jane Scher isn’t embarrassed to have a psychiatric service dog.

The owner of the Skin Tight MedSpa, who named her 3.8 pound Maltese “Botox,” says she needs the tiny pooch to keep her calm.

So she is still angry and upset at JetBlue for forcing her to buy her pet a seat on a flight from West Palm Beach to LaGuardia, instead of paying a pet fee.

Scher, whose socialite daughter Libbie Mugrabi has been in the news for her $100 million divorce, nearly missed the flight after the ticket agent said, “That’s a service dog? It doesn’t look like a service dog to me.”

Botox has all the documents proving his legitimacy, Scher told me.

“They cannot treat people like this. It’s disgusting.”

Scher says Botox, who calms her by licking her face, “is a little love bug.”

The Ludlow Massacre of 1914 is finally becoming a movie.

“Ludlow” is the true story of how government troops along with private muscle armed with a Gatling gun, massacred striking miners and their families.

Some 21 people, including children, were killed when their Colorado camp town was set on fire.

The story’s hero is John R. Lawson, the United Mine Workers of America leader, who testified a year later castigating John D. Rockefeller Jr. for his ignorance regarding conditions at his coal mines.

The producers hope the role of Lawson will bring Daniel Day-Lewis out of retirement.

There is a statue and memorial in Ludlow dedicated to the victims, but their ancestors think they deserve to be remembered on the silver screen.

Writer James DiEugenio has teamed up with producers Gray Frederickson and Bob DeBrino on “Ludlow.”

DiEugenio wrote “The JFK Assassination” and the “JFK Revisited” docudrama produced by Oliver Stone. Frederickson has produced over 40 films and won a Best Picture Oscar for “The Godfather Part II.”

DeBrino, who produced Vin Diesel’s “Find Me Guilty,” told me, “It’s sad that a tragic part of American history has somehow been missed by historians.”

Skylar Brandt, a principal dancer with American Ballet Theater, has been named to the Forbes 30 Under 30 list along with supermodel Winnie Harlow.

The prima ballerina, now in Australia on tour, had all her COVID vaccinations (and booster shot) and quarantined Down Under for two weeks to comply with the country’s laws — unlike tennis ace Novak Djokovic who was deported for trying to skirt the law of the land.

Brandt will return to the U.S. to perform with ABT at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., before making her debut in “Swan Lake” at Lincoln Center in June.

Comic Eli Lebowicz, of elicomedy.com, realized how different men with babies are treated, compared to women, on an airline flight.

“A woman with a baby, people just go up to her and say, ‘Can you just shut that baby up?’ A man with a crying baby, they’ll go, ‘Oh, my God, you’re a hero. God bless you, sir. We thank you for your service.’"

Lebowicz said the pre-flight announcement was: “We want to have pre-boarding for elderly, veterans, and men who are clearly inept without their wives!”
