Rye's Megyn Kelly, the Fox news anchor and part time Rye resident ho rose to further fame during her clashes with Donald Trump, is the subject of a Roger Ailes meme making its way around the Internet.
Ailes was the overlord who built Fox News for twenty years. Some think Kelly put the final nail in the Ailes coffin by not pledging her support as the Ailes situation deteriorated:

Greta Van Susteren, Bill O’Reilly and Maria Bartiromo had already defended Ailes. But Kelly was invisible -– ominously so.
At the center of this year’s presidential campaign, Kelly was being asked, cajoled and even pressured outright to pledge her support for Ailes in the first days after sex-harassment claims were lodged, two sources said.
