Megyn Kelly smacks ‘poor little’ David Frum in battle over Covid shots for young kids: ‘Some kind of a**hole’

Journalist Megyn Kelly soundly smacked former David Frum, President George W. Bush’s former speechwriter,  after he attacked her on social media for showing concern over 5-11-year-olds being forced to get the jab.

“You don’t have to be an ‘anti-vax extremist’ to have concerns re vaccinating a little one who has [very] little risk from COVID,” Kelly tweeted on Monday.

“You *do* have to be some kind of an a–hole to demonize any parent concerned about forcing minor kids to take a vaccine that’s had no long term testing,” she asserted.

Frum jumped into the fray after Kelly included a retweet from him proclaiming that it would be a mistake to allow an “anti-vax extremist” any “space and time” because the jab is proven to be safe. He also contended that states should “immediately make anti-COVID vaccination a requirement for school, sports leagues, etc.”

Frum then made fun of the wildly popular host of “The Megyn Kelly Show” and insinuated that she was “anti-vax” when she responded to his attacks.

“Personal abuse from @megynkelly is a heavy burden to bear, but somehow I’ll try to find the strength to carry on,” Frum’s tweet read. “@megynkelly wants to insist she is not ‘anti-vax.’ That’s good. She should in that case be encouraging her fan base to protect themselves by vaccinating – not scoring cheap social-media engagement by inciting them against the vaccine that will protect them and their families.”

Kelly was not deterred by Frum’s specious attack. She hit back at him and hard, writing, “Aww, @davidfrum says he’s being ‘abused’ by me. Poor little David. As for your 5-year-old into whose arm he wants to force a needle with an experimental vaccine whether you want it or not? That’s A-ok w/him.”

“Listen to any one of the shows I’ve done on COVID & you will hear me say I’m pro-vaccine & think everyone should get vaccinated,” she stated in another tweet.

“(Including last Friday’s.) Kids are different. Covid risk is lower, heart risk is more concerning. In short: [please] study your a– from your elbow.”

The back and forth was triggered by an AP report covering COVID vaccinations for young children.

“For elementary school-aged kids, Pfizer tested a much lower dose — a third of the amount that’s in each shot given now. Yet after their second dose, children ages 5 to 11 developed coronavirus-fighting antibody levels just as strong as teenagers and young adults getting the regular-strength shots,” Dr. Bill Gruber, a Pfizer senior vice president, told the AP.

“The kid dosage also proved safe, with similar or fewer temporary side effects — such as sore arms, fever or achiness — that teens experience,” Gruber claimed.

“I think we really hit the sweet spot,” the pediatrician asserted.

Kelly has fearlessly gone after Hollywood and other so-called leaders when it comes to COVID mandates on her Sirius XM show. She has valid concerns regarding COVID vaccinations for little ones and she let Frum know exactly how she feels about the practice. His attempt to disparage Kelly will likely only serve to strengthen her resolve and intensify her reporting on the subject.

Kelly is a rock star on social media and certainly has more of a spine than those such as Frum:
