Joy Behar and her fellow co-hosts “The View” attacked Megyn Kelly Tuesday for her feud with Jane Fonda over a plastic surgery question she asked the actress during an interview last year.
The comment came during a panel discussion on the NBC host blasting Fonda Monday over the actress calling Kelly “not that good of an interviewer.” During her show, Kelly defended her question and brought up Fonda’s controversial actions during the Vietnam War for which she earned the nickname “Hanoi Jane.”
“Honestly, she has no business lecturing anyone on what qualifies as offensive,” Kelly said in the clip aired ahead of the discussion.
“Nor do you, nor do you,” Whoopi Goldberg responded.
“To drag the Vietnam War into a plastic surgery conversation is a real stretch, Megyn, okay?” Joy Behar interjected. “Also, why are people more angry with Jane Fonda about the Vietnam War than they are with Nixon and LBJ… it amazes me how you can focus on Jane Fonda.”
“It’s one thing to be a politician making policy and sending people to war. It’s a whole other thing to be an actor going over and spreading anti-war propaganda,” Meghan McCain jumped in. “It was a very, very, very big deal to many veterans.”
“What bothered me is, you know, I’ve never seen a journalist do something like that,” Sunny Hostin explained.
“Who’s a journalist? Not anymore, not anymore,” Behar interrupted. “Jane should have just said to her: ‘And how much work have you had, bitch?'”
“All of this is beneath all of us,” McCain told her co-hosts.
Goldberg then brought up a Kelly comment when she was at Fox News about Santa being white.
“You know, Megyn, if I can forgive you for telling all my friends’ black children that Santa’s only white,” Goldberg said. “You can step back, because you made a mistake, you made a mistake…we all make mistakes.”
