Megyn Kelly discussed her unspectacular interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin and the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Today the day after and talked extensively about Putin’s sense of humor. The only problem is he used his humor to make her look like an airhead.
When she asked Putin about General Michael Flynn, he made her look like a ninny but NBC took care of it and cut the worst Kelly-Putin exchange. She also looked foolish in her exchange with the Indian P.M.
She was supposed to be spreading propaganda and ended up looking like a fluffhead. Her show lost in the ratings to a rerun of ’60 Minutes’. It did okay but not great.
Arrest Megan Kelly
According to ExpressUK, Putin said:
“When I came to the event for our company, Russia Today, and sat down at the table, next to me there was a gentleman sitting on one side.”
“’I made my speech. Then we talked about some other stuff. And I got up and left. And then afterwards I was told, ‘You know there was an American gentleman. He was involved in some things. He used to be in the security services'”.
“That’s it. I didn’t even really talk to him.”
“If Mr Flynn and I had this kind of interaction, while you and I, we have spent an entire day together, and Mr Flynn was fired from his job, you then should be arrested and put in jail.”
Mr Putin told Ms Kelly the issue of Moscow’s connections with Donald Trump and allegations of interference with US elections had been “selected by someone as a line of attack against the current US president.”
He said it was political and Americans should take care of it themselves.

Kelly’s getting trolled
Kelly got trolled by Twitter users after she asked Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi if he is on Twitter.
“I saw your tweet with the umbrella!” Modi said, referencing Kelly’s tweet that day saying that it stopped raining in St. Petersburg.
“Oh yes!” Kelly responded without thinking or without knowledge. “Are you on Twitter?” Kelly asked the prime minister.
“Yes,” Modi replied.
Now his 30 million followers are trolling her.

Looks silly here
Then there was this exchange. India’s PM made a joke when NBC’s airhead Kelly asked him “if he believes” Putin’s comments about not interfering in external state elections.
