Megyn Kelly is biting back at Jane Fonda -- and nothing is off the table.
On Sunday, Fonda criticized Kelly, telling Variety she was "stunned" when Kelly asked an "inappropriate" question about her cosmetic surgery during a September appearance on "Megyn Kelly Today." 24 hours later, Kelly unloaded on the actress, calling out her controversial history and supposed hypocrisy.
"Fonda was on to promote a film about aging," Kelly said on Monday's show. "'Well, the truth is most older women look nothing like Fonda, who is now 80. And if Fonda really wants to have an honest discussion about older women's cultural face, then her plastic surgery is tough to ignore."
Addressing her studio audience, she continued, "Fonda herself knows this. She knows this. And that is why, to her credit, she’s discussed her cosmetic surgery pretty much everywhere before coming on our show."
Fonda clearly touched a nerve -- Kelly was just getting started.
"Look, I gave her the chance to empower other women, young and old, on a subject which she purports to know well and she rejected it. That’s okay. But I have no regrets about the question," Kelly went on. "Nor am I in the market for a lesson from Jane Fonda on what is and is not appropriate.
"After all, this is a woman whose name is synonymous with outrage,” she said. “Look at her treatment of our military during the Vietnam war, many of our veterans still call her ‘Hanoi Jane’ thanks to her radio broadcasts which attempted to shame American troops. She posed on an anti-aircraft gun used to shoot down our pilots. She called our POW's "hypocrites and liars" and referred to their torture as understandable. Even she had to apologize years later for that gun picture -- but not for the rest of it."
And then the kicker: "By the way she still says she's not proud of America. So, the moral indignation is a little much. She put her plastic surgery out there. She said she wanted to discuss the plight of older women in America. And honestly, she has no business lecturing anyone on what qualifies as offensive."
