Don't tell me that Megyn Kelly didn't know exactly what she was doing when she joked on the air last night about sleeping with Fox News meteorologist, Janice Dean. After Dean gave an update on the ferocious winter storm Hercules, Kelly quipped, "So if they're canceling the trains, does that mean that you and I are having another night in bed together?"
Dean was obviously taken aback. "Oh, my goodness! I have no words - except that we're going to be on YouTube in a few minutes."
Kelly laughed and added, "The only reason I say this is because during Hurricane Sandy, there were no hotel rooms and Janice and I shared a hotel room so that there were enough rooms for all of the people on air."
Color me cynical but I don't believe for one minute that's the only reason she said it. Especially given her phrasing: "another night in bed together." And Dean knew right away the remark would go viral.
Dean also made a point of saying, “I’m happy to say that you’re the only female I’ve ever shared a bed with.”
Then, after starting off the titillating talk, Kelly said, “We’re godmothers to each other’s children. It’s not like that.” Meaning, it was not like what she had just deliberately suggested it was like. And sure enough, it has gone (somewhat) viral.
Sarah Palin could take a lesson.
Oh, and Megyn? This does not mean anyone is likely to forget your "white Santa" comments.
Megyn – the public expects better.
This overly made-up Kelly will say anything to draw attention to her in the hope of boosting her ratings. It also allows her to play the victim (what a surprise!!!) if and when she is criticized for what she says.
With all my love,
Well as some Southern folks would say, “Well, Megyn, that’s mighty white of you.” (Note—for those unfamiliar with the term, it’s generally a slight at, usually, white people who feel they’ve done some sort of good by treating their “inferiors” as if they’re actual people. In this case, Megyn is acting as though she should be commended for her “selfless” act. We all know how inconvenienced Megyn must have been by sharing a room with someone as insignificant as a “weather girl.” I bet she must’ve thought her days of having to share a room with someone else was years behind her.)
That said, how much do you wanna bet that Kelly will be up Monday claiming that people making the comment viral will be made into an “out of context liberal smear” line, conveniently leaving out that a lot of Youtube users have a frat boy mentality where they won’t even post a video of a complete sentence if the whole comment brings the lulz?
On second thought… Sucker’s bet. I’m convinced that her “Santa is White” comment was just to get herself viral, and she was too thin skinned to handle the response she succeeded in baiting. Same thing here.
