Fox News host Megyn Kelly had more than just a few laughs on “The Kelly File” Monday over the MSNBC interview Sunday when Melisa Harris Perry asked Eric Holder to “quack like a duck.”
Kelly and her Fox News colleague, Howard Kurtz, tried to dissect the crazy MSNBC exchange, which could go down in history as one of the most bizarre exchanges between a journalist and a top U.S. official.
Kelly took a moment to try to understand what Perry could have been thinking when she regressed into a nonsensical, smitten schoolgirl during her exclusive interview with the attorney general of the United States.
“Oh, my God, oh my God, is it over, is it over?” Kelly asked Kurtz after playing the short MSNBC clip.
“It’s terrible, it’s terrible!” she added.
“That was the most cringe-inducing thing I have seen since GloZel Green was in a bathtub full of Fruitloops before interviewing the president,” Kurtz said. “… I thought she was going to get down on one knee and proclaim her undying love for Eric Holder!”
Kelly agreed, and with genuine laughter compared Perry’s strange request of Holder to a girlish crush.
“… I mean, I’ve never seen anything like that, what was she doing?” Kelly said.
Trying to make sense of it, Kurtz speculated that maybe it was an attempt to have the interview go viral – if only Holder had quacked.
“Oh, how humiliating for her,” Kelly said.
“Does she know how she just humiliated herself?”
Kurtz didn’t think so, and attributed the bizarre behavior to the old “thrill up the leg” syndrome, MSNBC hosts are prone to when they’re near someone close to the Obama administration.
Kelly then ended the segment with the biggest slam of all.
“Look, Brian Williams may make up things, but I’d take him any day over Melissa Harris Perry interviewing the attorney general.”
