Megyn Kelly fires shots at Jane Fonda on ‘Today’

After Jane Fonda told Variety over the weekend that she would return to MegynKelly’s show even after the host asked Fonda about her plastic surgery, but only “if she comes around and learns her stuff.” “It wasn’t like I was upset,” she said. “I was stunned. It was so inappropriate.” Kelly struck back on “Today,” saying Fonda “has no business lecturing anyone on what qualifies as offensive.” “This is a woman whose name is synonymous with outrage. Look at her treatment of military during the Vietnam War,” Kelly said to muted cheers from the live audience. An NBC staffer later told Fox News that the staff was appalled at Kelly’s comments.
