Megyn Kelly Fires Back At Jane Fonda: ‘I Have No Regrets About The Question’
If there's one thing anyone should know about Megyn Kelly, it's that she will stop at nothing to prove her point.
This time, Kelly is coming for Jane Fonda. The actress is reportedly still upset about the comments that Kelly made in September 2017 during an interview with Fonda.
While appearing on Megyn Kelly Today in September 2017, Kelly asked Fonda why she had been so open about having plastic surgery.
Before answering the question, Fonda gave Kelly a shocked stare.
"We really want to talk about that now?" Fonda replied.

While the interview may have happened almost four months ago, Kelly took to her show to further address their issues.
On Monday, the NBC host did not hesitate to address the "poor me routine." She simply stated that her philosophy of what people think of her is none of her business.
The journalist also shared several clips of Fonda admitting that she has had plastic surgery before appearing on her show.
"I gave her the chance to empower other women, young and old, on a subject which she purports to know well, and she rejected it," Kelly said.
Fonda had stated in later interviews that she was shocked by Kelly's plastic surgery question and that it was a weird thing to ask.
Kelly went on to state that she had no regrets about the question and that Fonda's name is synonymous with outrage and even called her out for her comments during the Vietnam war, which earned her the nickname "Hanoi Jane."
While appearing at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah, Fonda sat down with Variety for an interview. When asked about the hype around the viral interview, Fonda stated that she felt that Kelly's comments were inappropriate and she's not a good interviewer.
Just rename #MegynKellyToday, Megyn Kelly's Fox Mean Girl Hour. That attack on Jane Fonda was one of the worst and embarrassing things I've seen on a NBC News program.

Hmmm. Megyn Kelly takes on Jane Fonda's criticism of her plastic surgery question, bringing up her "Hanoi Jane" nickname for anti war activism on Today show. Are we seeing Kelly's old Fox News habits resurface? — Eric Deggans at NPR (@Deggans) January 22, 2018
Megyn Kelly coming for Jane Fonda is not even in the top 500 of idiotic things she’s done.
