The former Fox News host Megyn Kelly is speaking out this week to slam the media spin that the Vice President Kamala Harris is only unpopular because of her skin color and gender.

Kelly Sounds Off

During her eponymous SiriusXM show this week, Kelly responded to an opinion piece written by The New York Times (NYT) columnist Ezra Klein, who claimed that Harris is being “underestimated” as a replacement for President Joe Biden if he were to bow out of the 2024 presidential election.

Kelly was quick to shut down Klein’s suggestion that Harris’ “troubles on the public stage” are due to her being a black woman.

“I’ve overcome my lady parts to be able to not be cautious and careful and measured — it’s amazing I’ve overcome that, notwithstanding all the estrogen raging in my body,” Kelly said sarcastically.

“And apparently, Kamala Harris was just too strong a combo, I guess, being black and being a woman. Therefore, that’s why she is the way she is,” she continued. “I mean, ok, tell that to Condoleezza Rice because she hasn’t suffered from any of those problems.”

Kelly Torches Harris

This is far from the first time that Kelly has spoken out against Harris. Last month, Kelly fired back at Harris after the vice president admitted that she’s “scared as heck” of Donald Trump being reelected.

“She thinks she’s Rush Limbaugh. She’s not. It’s so obvious,” Kelly said in response. “She tries to explain things to people all the time, as though she’s talking to a 2 year old. And look, I talk to my audience about complex things all the time, and I never assume anybody understands a complex thing. I always give a couple lines of explanation because people are living their lives and they’re not following politics day and night like I am. But I don’t treat them like they’re idiots.”

“I have a respect for my audience’s intelligence that they deserve because I talk to my audience,” Kelly continued. “They call in all the time on SiriusXM, they write in at She talks to the people listening to her like she thinks they’re on the short bus. Forgive me, but she does.”

Kelly Doubles Down

Not stopping there, Kelly went on to say that she feels “insulted” by the way that Harris speaks.

“All I feel is insulted. My intelligence is insulted. I’m bored by you. I’m offended by you,” Kelly said. “The thing is, it almost makes me think of Oprah. So Oprah actually was full of profundities when she did that show. But back in the day when I was young and in law school and you turn on ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show,’ you would hear something. She was the one we got the ‘aha moment’ from.”

“She would have this little catchphrase where you’re like, ‘Oh, yeah, that’s something to think about,’ and her team would set it to music and they’d slow down the interaction, and you’d be moved,” Kelly added. “You’d think, ‘Oh, I feel inspired.’ She thinks she’s Oprah. She thinks we’re going to add a little twinkly music. I’m going to say it like this, and even though it’s total inanity, it’s going to move people.”

This comes as Harris remains incredibly unpopular. Newsweek reported that the latest polls show that Harris’ current approval rating stands at 36.7 percent as of February 18, while 51.9 percent of Americans disapprove of her.

Liberals can pretend that Harris is only unpopular because she is a black woman, but this is really not the case at all. In the end, Harris is disliked because she’s done a terrible job as vice president, and her gender and skin color have nothing to do with it!
