Former Fox News star, Megyn Kelly kicked off her new magazine-style program on NBC Sunday evening where she is reportedly earning $20M per year. Her big premiere included an interview with President Vladimir Putin. Unfortunately for Kelly, she was no match for Putin.
After opening the show with a segment about drugs, Kelly went into segment number two where she went one-on-one with Putin. For the 12-minutes they sat together, the former KGB agent showed no signs of being intimidated by Kelly’s accusations regarding Russian hackers meddling with the 2016 election.
Kelly, who appeared rusty at best, permitted Putin to spew run on answers which she never challenged. Putin slammed Americans and the U.S. media by saying, “You people are so creative over there. Good job. Your lives must be boring.” He later added, “Have you all lost your senses over there?” Kelly said nothing.
Megyn Kelly hit Putin with all the key mainstream media talking points, e.g., Russian hacking, General Michael Flynn, and the Russians “having something” on President Trump. Despite his run on answers, Kelly never jumped in nor did she hit back with follow up questions of substance. Putin did a remarkable job at making Kelly look like a middle school football player trying to tackle an NFL superstar.
I’ve seen this side of Megyn many times when I was a regular on her show. Often criticized for cutting off her guests, Megyn Kelly never tried that tactic with me. She’d ask me a question or make a statement, and I’d either blow her away with facts or push her into silence with a huge bucket of common sense.
She once said to me during a commercial break, “Every time you’re on the show my producer tells me I fall into the DML trance.” Watching the interview between her and Putin, I was reminded of her body language when she lacks knowledge with a specific topic. When she doesn’t know what she’s talking about, she’s a deer in headlights.
Kelly asked Putin a stupid question which she had to have known there would be no real answer. She asked, “President Putin, do you have something damaging on our president?” Putin answered, “Load of nonsense. ”
I’m anxious to see what the ratings will reflect, but I see them going down with each passing week. I’m guessing NBC News will want a partial refund on the $20M.
The full interview is below, and a short segment can be watched here:
