Megyn Kelly was unable to avoid the clash between Donald Trump and the NFL Tuesday when an audience member asked if she would take a knee on her new morning show “Megyn Kelly Today.” This comes a day after Kelly said she’s “kind of done with politics for now.”
“I would never be at a sporting event,” Kelly joked, adding that she sees the controversy through a different lens after working in law for nearly a decade.
“I am a lover of the First Amendment and I, in a way, think that this whole situation underscores some of the beauty of our country,” she said. “Because those players have every right to take a knee. And those who object to it have every right to say they object.”
“The answer to speech we do not like is not less speech, it’s more speech,” she added. Before moving on to another audience question about advice for young women, she gave a “Go USA!”
She did not address Trump’s calling players who choose to protest a “son of a b—-” or his call for the NFL to ban kneeling during the anthem, which even more players have done since his Friday attack on the league.
