Megyn Kelly Tears Into Jane Fonda About Plastic Surgery, 'Hanoi Jane'

Megyn Kelly Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly

Fonda told Variety that she wasn't "upset" by the question Kelly asked but was "stunned" because she thought it was inappropriate. "It was so inappropriate".

Fonda has since explained she had not paid attention to where she was sitting, took responsibility for the photo and expressed her regret and remorse over the resulting image."It was never my intention to cause harm", she wrote on her website in 2011.

"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", she said.

A clips of a previous "TODAY" TV appearance of Fonda discussing her history with plastic surgery then played for the room, and Kelly referenced Fonda's other interviews which covered the topic.

In a "Megyn Kelly Today" segment dedicated wholly to lambasting the Oscar-winning actress, Kelly went on the offensive to combat what she deemed Fonda's "Poor Me routine". Kelly then unearthed the decades-old controversy over Fonda's remarks and actions during her protest of the Vietnam War. In her explanation about why she wasn't prepared to take such advice from Fonda, Kelly labeled Fonda an unpatriotic American whose "name is synonymous with outrage".

"Look at her treatment of our military during the Vietnam War". She posed on an antiaircraft gun used to shoot down our American pilots. She called our POW's hypocrites and liars and referred to their torture as understandable. "For years she has spoken openly about her joy in giving a cultural face to older women", she said.

Future Nokia flagship could have five camera lenses
The smartphone will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC and offers 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. Five of these holes will include camera lenses, while the remaining two are said to have two LED flashlights.

"By the way, she still says she's not proud of America", Ms. Kelly said. So her plastic surgery, which she had discussed previously, should have been fair game. "And, honestly, she has no business lecturing anyone on what qualifies as offensive". Just got this message from a former Fox News colleague of Megyn's: "Just shows that FNC never made her do anything...this is who she is".

Following the encounter, Fonda criticized the host's question, though Kelly claims she has answered similar queries without hesitation.

Jane Fonda, left, and Megyn Kelly. Also, the rest of America who shouted in unison, WHAT THE FUCK IS EVEN WRONG WITH YOU, MEGYN KELLY!

Kelly went months without responding to Fonda's clear issue with the question, but ultimately chose to react to what she called Fonda's "poor-me routine" because Fonda won't let it go.

When much of the NBC News and Sports divisions fly off to Pyeongchang, South Korea, for the Olympic Games in the coming weeks, Ms. Kelly will remain stateside.

But Kelly on Monday not only defended her interview with Fonda, but questioned the actress' patriotism. But in the typically warmer and chattier environs of "Today", where Hollywood goes to plug its wares, Ms. Kelly's rebuke of a major celebrity stood out and suggested that NBC's 9 a.m. hour had undergone a change.
