Megyn Kelly vs. Jane Fonda: The scratching continues

Monday on NBC's "Today", host Megyn Kelly criticized actress Jane Fonda for her repeated complaints during other media appearances about Kelly's question to her on plastic surgery.

Megyn Kelly slams Jane Fonda over plastic surgery question. Kelly mishandled the moment, opening herself up to fair criticism at a time where her general skills as a host were in question.

In a rather blistering segment addressing the audience on Monday's program, Kelly defended asking the legendary actress and activist in September about the work she's had done, noting she looked unbelievable for her age (Fonda is 80).

Jane Fonda and Megyn Kelly appear to be gearing up for a war of words.

On Monday, the NBC host didn't hesitate to address the "poor me routine".

Jane Fonda is Hollywood royalty for her family name, for her own films, and of course for her far left politics.

"For years she has spoke about the joy of giving a cultural face to older women", Kelly said. During the interview, Kelly inquired after Fonda's history with plastic surgery, to which the actress responded, "We really want to talk about that right now?"

And then Megyn called Jane out for her comments during the Vietnam war, which earned her the nickname, "Hanoi Jane".

That brush-back was featured among the top exhibits as TV critics everywhere wrote about Kelly's troubles with ratings and a new format upon launching "Megyn Kelly Today" after a long career at Fox News.

"I gave her the chance to empower other women, young and old, on a subject she purports to know well and she rejected it". People keep it in the cultural rotation, as in this Variety interview, published over the weekend, in which Fonda said, "It wasn't like I was upset".

"She posed on an anti-aircraft gun used to shoot down our American pilots, she called our POW's hypocrites and liars, and referred to their torture as 'understandable'".

"You've been an example to everyone in how to age beautifully and with strength and unapologetically", Kelly said to Fonda at the time. Even she had to apologize years later for that gun picture, but not for the rest of it. "By the way, she still says she's 'not proud" of America.

The alleged feud was initially inflamed when Kelly - who takes over "TODAY" at 9a.m - appeared to mock Kotb while congratulating her after it was announced that she would be replacing disgraced anchor Matt Lauer.

Kelly went on to insist she simply wanted to have an "honest discussion" with the star about ageing gracefully, and she has "no regrets" about broaching the topic live on air. "And honestly she has no business lecturing anyone on what qualifies as offensive", she sniped.
