Now that you simply’re at NBC you’re appearing all peaceable like some kind of Mahatma Blondie?” she continued. “As a result of let’s not overlook, earlier than she was NBC Information’ Megyn Kelly, for over a decade she was Fox Information’ Megyn Kelly: principally a reasonably, race-baiting puppet who Roger Ailes stored attempting to place his hand up.”
Wolf then gave viewers a style of what Megyn Kelly was like on Fox Information, together with clips of her telling Invoice Ayers he sounds “like Osama bin Laden”; her notorious obsession with the fictional “Warfare on Christmas”; and her ridiculously racist, ‘round the clock New Black Panther Celebration protection.
“Megyn was the Tonya Harding of cable information for 12 years: breaking journalism’s kneecaps again and again. And we have been simply the poor Nancy Kerrigans being like, ‘Why? Whyyyyy?!’ And now you count on us to forgive you simply since you made the Olympics? I don’t suppose so, Tonya!” exclaimed Wolf.
