Megyn Kelly drew the wrath of many liberals when she asked communist doyenne “Hanoi Jane” Fonda about her potentially getting ‘work done’ to stay so young looking.
But it may not have been the supposed jab at former exercise icon Fonda reputedly getting plastic surgery that struck a nerve, so much as a mainstream media personality exposing the myth of Hanoi Jane as the noble communist crusader.
“So, Megyn Kelly took a lot of heat for her line of questioning to Jane Fonda back in September. Take a look,” Whoopi said, then rolled the Megyn Kelly clip.
“I read that you felt — you’re not proud to admit you have had work done. Why not?” Megyn asked the eighty-year-old Fonda.
“We really want to talk about that now?” Fonda asked, clearly uncomfortable.
“One of the things people think about when they look at you is how amazing you look,” Kelly responded.
“Well thanks. Good attitude. Good posture. Take care of myself. Let me tell you why I love this movie that we did, our souls at night. Rather than plastic surgery,” she retorted.
“So, she’s mentioned… several places now, how uncomfortable that was,” Whoopi said. “Yesterday, Megyn Kelly defended herself. She said, Fonda’s been very candid about her surgery in the past. And she didn’t stop there. Take a look.”
“I have no regrets about that question. Nor am I in the market for a lesson from Jane Fonda on what is and is not appropriate. After all this is a woman whose name is synonymous with outrage. Look at her treatment of our military during the Vietnam war. Many of our veterans — (Applause) — Still call her Hanoi Jane. Thanks to her radio broadcast that attempted to shame American troops. She put her plastic surgery out there. She has though business lecturing anyone on what qualifies as offensive.”
Whoopi just couldn’t take it. “Nor do you. Nor do you,” she puffed.
“I mean, really,” Behar said.
“I mean — do you want to talk about it?” Whoopi asked.
“To drag the Vietnam War into a plastic surgery conversation is a real stretch, Megyn, okay?” Behar fumed. “And also why are people more angry with Jane Fonda about the Vietnam War than they are with Nixon and LBJ and people who lied about the war and sent boys as cannon fodder to that unjust and filthy war. It amazes me how you can focus on Jane Fonda.”
There you have it. Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg made that Megyn Kelly would ‘dare’ bring up Fonda’s Vietnam war protesting, a fiasco that she recently said, forty-five years later, in public that she was “proud she went.”
Meghan McCain was there with a fiery retort.
“It’s one thing to be a politician making policy and sending people to war,” McCain said. “It’s a whole other thing to be an actor, going over, spreading anti-war propaganda. It was a very, very, very big deal to many veterans. My father was a P.O.W. I will say that she says she regrets doing that to my dying day. I don’t like any of this in general because I do think when you’re revisiting things as serious as anti-war propaganda and people going over in such a context, it has nothing to do with plastic surgery. It’s much more serious than the issue at hand.”
“What bothered me, I have never seen a journalist do something like that,” Sunny Hostin chimed in.
“Who’s a journalist? Not anymore. Not anymore,” Behar retorted.
“The reason you don’t see it is because — journalists are not supposed to be the story,” Hostin chimed in. “We’re supposed to be, and it’s a struggle, I think, for everyone to be, but we’re supposed to be humble. We’re supposed to use whatever time we’re given to shine a light on other stories. I mean there are so many stories that we’re not covering…”
Has Sunny Hostin ever witnessed CNN’s Jim Acosta at a press conference?
As for other stories the press could be covering, the mainstream media completely skipped out on numerous damning reports, such as former Mueller investigator Pete Strzok discussing with his mistress Lisa Page the prospect of setting up a “secret society” to oppose the president and his assessment that “there’s no big there there” in the Russian collusion investigation.
Do The View ladies care about that? Hardly.
Then comes the coup de grace: Joy Behar straight up going mean girls on Megyn Kelly.
“Jane should have just said to her, ‘And how much work have you had, bitch?’ I mean —” Joy Behar ranted.
“Can I interject? All of this is beneath all of us,” McCain said. “And as someone I have looked up to my entire career. I adore you. I adore the work you did. Especially in Afghanistan and the kind of interviews you did. And we’re lacking right now, people like Ann [Curry]. So, I think most importantly — [ applause ] I don’t care about women having, if you want plastic surgery. Amazing. I agree this is not — there’s so many more provocative and interesting topics that Megyn should be covering.”
