Russian President Vladimir Putin made Megyn Kelly look sort of silly in front of a laughing audience in St. Petersburg after she asked about fake news about Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election.
Megyn Kelly asked about the “fingerprints” left by the Russians. “What fingerprints?” Putin demanded following Kelly’s request. The audience laughed. “What are you talking about?” he continued with a smile. “IP addresses, they can be invented. You know, there are very many specialists that can invent or fake [this].”
“You know, a kid of yours can [fake an IP address]. Your girl that is three years old can perpetrate such an attack,” said Putin.
Kelly went on to demand answers, “this is not my allegation, this is the conclusion of the 17 U.S. intelligence agencies and the others that I mentioned.” She went on to ask Putin if his aides and Trump’s ever discussed loosening sanctions on Russia.
“That’s just absurd, what they’re saying,” he responded. “I don’t know where these people have come from that distribute this kind of information. ”
‘This hysteria never seems to stop. Maybe someone has a pill that will make this hysteria stop,” Putin responded, to laughter from the audience. Kelly looked rusty throughout the entire interview. Her first gig on NBC NEWS fell flat, at best.
