WATCH: MSNBC’s Tiffany Cross Absolutely Eviscerates Karen Queen Megyn Kelly
At one time, Megyn Kelly was the biggest name in cable news. And she turned her notoriety into a massive contract with NBC News. She barely made it a year, however, before igniting a controversy by defending blackface. She left the network shortly after.
In the years since her departure from the limelight, Kelly has grown increasingly right wing. She uses her podcast and social media presence to attack public figures, many of them women of color. This week, Kelly went after tennis player Naomi Osaka. This prompted Tiffany Cross to rip her apart during a Saturday monologue.
The MSNBC host began, “The 50-year-old bully is trying to bulldoze her way back into relevance that only comes to women like her for being a provocateur, not for offering any type of intellectual input. Nevertheless, here we are.”
“So it’s no coincidence that Snow White and the seven dumb takes she’s had recently overwhelmingly target Black women. The amazing luminary Nicole Hannah-Jones, whom Kelly went after over the 1619 Project. The Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle, who Kelly said should stop whining about the treatment of baby Archie. Olympic Hammer thrower Gwen Berry, who Kelly suggested be removed from the Olympics due to her protest.”

The host closed her comments, “We’re quite used to it. But when it comes to us, sister, stop punching above your weight. You keep asking for this smoke that you really don’t want. You want to act like a high school mean girl, then you’ll get treated that way.”
