The former Fox News host Megyn Kelly is speaking out this week to slam the media spin that the Vice President Kamala Harris is only unpopular because of her skin color and gender.

During her eponymous SiriusXM show this week, Kelly responded to an opinion piece written by The New York Times (NYT) columnist Ezra Klein, who claimed that Harris is being “underestimated” as a replacement for President Joe Biden if he were to bow out of the 2024 presidential election.

Kelly was quick to shut down Klein’s suggestion that Harris’ “troubles on the public stage” are due to her being a black woman. “I’ve overcome my lady parts to be able to not be cautious and careful and measured — it’s amazing I’ve overcome that, notwithstanding all the estrogen raging in my body,” Kelly said sarcastically. “And apparently, Kamala Harris was just too strong a combo, I guess, being black and being a woman. Therefore, that’s why she is the way she is,” she continued.

“This comes as Harris remains incredibly unpopular. Newsweek reported that the latest polls show that Harris’ current approval rating stands at 36.7 percent as of February 18, while 51.9 percent of Americans disapprove of her. Liberals can pretend that Harris is only unpopular because she is a black woman, but this is really not the case at all. In the end, Harris is disliked because she’s done a terrible job as vice president, and her gender and skin color have nothing to do with it!
