Megyn Kelly isn’t taking kindly to Trevor Noah’s criticism of her interview with controversial GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump.
“So grateful I have men like @Trevornoah 2 advise on how to deal w/gender attacks- I’m sure his life experience far better than mine on this!” Kelly tweeted on Thursday morning.
The tweet came in response to a segment Noah ran on Wednesday’s “The Daily Show,” in which he said the interview failed to live up to the hype that surrounded it.
Saying it was “advertised as a blood bath,” Noah was also highly critical of Kelly’s silly questions and follow-up fumbles. For example, the man running for control of the world’s most powerfully military “doesn’t think it’s healthy to follow up on mistakes — and there’s no follow-up question!”
Noah compared it to Robert Durst’s confession and how things might have been had “The Jinx” filmmakers skipped over his “I killed them all” admission.
“It didn’t seem to be about journalism or the Republican party or even the election, it seemed to be about two brands: Donald Trump and Megyn Kelly,” Noah said critically. “Or maybe it was just couples therapy.”
He added, “Megyn Kelly, I don’t get it; you spent months lambasting Trump with his sexist comments and now you’re laughing it off? I don’t believe this, but Megyn Kelly just got negged by Donald Trump!”
