Megyn Kelly has been having problems at NBC ever since she officially joined the network last fall, as her show has become a huge ratings anchor. Now, things have gotten even worse for Kelly, as her NBC colleague Seth Meyers has turned on her and publicly roasted her.
The Daily Caller reported that Meyers just took a jab at Kelly after she previously stated while working for Fox News Jesus and Santa Claus are white. Kelly said this in 2013 while leading a Fox panel on the show she had at the conservative network.
“NBC continues to produce highly rated musicals. NBC aired a live version of Jesus Christ Superstar this year starring John Legend … You know a network has some range when they have a black Jesus and Megyn Kelly,” Meyers said on Monday before a crowd.
“By the way, for all you kids watching at home, Santa just is white,” Kelly said on “The Kelly File.” “Jesus was a white man too.”
Kelly has had trouble getting any ratings since her morning show premiered on NBC in the 9am time slot of the “Today” show. Her ratings have been so bad, in fact, that they have been dragging down the ratings of the 10am hour of “Today” as well.
Clips like the one above are partly why Kelly’s ratings have been so bad, as liberal viewers have refused to “forgive” Kelly for her time at Fox. Meanwhile, conservatives view Kelly as a traitor of sorts, as she has done everything she can to distance herself from the audience that had made her a success in the first place. This has left her with virtually no viewers left who are willing to watch her morning show, and the program’s abysmal ratings have reflected the fact that Kelly has managed to anger both sides of the political spectrum.
