Conservative commentator Megyn Kelly poked fun Tuesday at the media’s spin of Vice President Kamala Harris on an episode of “The Megyn Kelly Show.”

Kelly commented on an opinion piece penned by The New York Times (NYT) columnist Ezra Klein that suggested Harris has been “underestimated” as a replacement for Biden if he were to bow out of the 2024 presidential election.

Kelly balked at Klein’s attribution of Harris’ “troubles on the public stage” to the vice president’s status as a black woman. She also dismissed the columnist’s idea that the world was “afraid” of women and black people “being angry.”

“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 tongue-in-cheek.

“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,” Kelly continued. “I mean, ok, tell that to Condoleezza Rice because she hasn’t suffered from any of those problems.”

NYT publisher A.G. Sulzberger stated Monday that their coverage of the President’s age resulted in the White House being “extremely upset” in an interview by The Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism. The president has faced intense scrutiny in recent weeks after special counsel Robert Hur declined to pursue criminal charges against Biden, stating that the president “would likely present himself to a jury, as he did during our interview of him, as a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory.” (RELATED: ‘The Shame, The Horror!’: Megyn Kelly Rips On Sunny Hostin Whose Ancestors Owned Slaves)

The conservative commentator noted that several media outlets admitted to Biden’s uphill battle for a second term as president. She addressed Silver’s article suggesting that Biden participate in “four lengthy sit-down interviews” with “non-friendly sources” such as the New York Times, The Washington Post, 60 Minutes, the Wall Street Journal op-ed page and writers at The Dispatch.

“I like Jonah Goldberg but those are Never Trumpers. Those are people who would definitely be voting for Biden instead of Trump,” Kelly argued.

A poll published Feb. 20 by the Monmouth University Polling Institute (MUPI) found that Kamala Harris’ job performance is viewed unfavorably. The vice president “receives a job rating of 35% approve and 58% disapprove, which is basically unchanged from polls taken since the fall,” the poll stated.

President Joe Biden received 38% approval and 58% disapproval regarding general job performance in the poll. “This represents a slight improvement from Monmouth’s December poll which marked an all-time low for Biden since taking office (34% approve and 61% disapprove),” the poll read.

MUPI carried out the poll from Feb. 8 to 12, relying on a randomized, country-wide sample of 902 people who had reached their majority.
