This isn't unprecedented or uncharted for Kelly; she has a history of dubious remarks, especially during her days at Fox. She might present herself more as a "centrist" or "serious television journalist" now, but she perpetuated several of the Fox News tropes more than willingly, so if anything, this is overdue.

Everyone is forgetting about ALL the U.S. Postal workers who delivered those bombs, they could have been killed. Thank your mail person for all that they do. 10 bombs were sent through the mail and two former U.S. Presidents, a former Vice President, a sitting Senator (at two of her office), other former government officials, and their families could have been killed.

Santa Claus is white as the tradition came from the Netherlands, Jesus was not white, he was from the continent of Africa and he looked more like people from the middle east and would probably not be allowed in the US due to the ban. Also, for Megan Kelley to say she never knew, seriously, how stupid does she think we are?!

Reporters who fail to call out the BS and decide that accepting lies is the new normal out of fear will be the reason our republic fails. Don't be afraid of these lunatics, if you do and they silence you they've already won. Take note and learn from the Saudi reporter who gave his life to pen his opinion or we'll soon find ourselves in that same world. Division is the oldest play in the book - right now they come after immigrants and reporters and their individual political enemies to pick at the pillars of our republic. Don't be afraid, the majority of America stands by those who value facts. Stand strong for what it means to be an American.

The fact that Fox was founded to take political influence for the right... That's a fact, look it up... that alone makes any debate about their content totally useless. Of course they are biased and racist, that's their job and you should wonder why that's legal, not whether they should do it or not! They shouldn't be allowed to, that's the bottom line for any democratic person. Yes, freedom of speech yadda yadda. Freedom of speech does NOT protect hatespeech, lies and political influence by mass media. If that was the case, nobody could sue anybody for anything they ever say...but it's not the case! Make america great? Make america DECENT first, then we can talk...

What I think we are seeing with Megyn Kelly is a trend of her perpetuating pro white stereotypes and fables. Scientist and historians have proof that both Santa Clause and Jesus were historically and scientifically men of color, and not the stereotypes painted by the pro white Christian churches of the past. She seems to “step in it” on these types of issues often. Are we seeing her true thinking? Or is she racist through ignorance? Or could it go even deeper, i.e. that she knows the facts, but is trying to promote a pro white agenda?

A lot of my white friends doesn't get this issue either. I don't dis them. I just realized that they come from a segregated community. This is what happens when ppl sticks to their own. How can one walk in some else shoes if they haven't met other ppl than your own? Megan just got a teachable moment. MSNBC should keep her but should put different culture ppl working in her show.

The thing that made America great was it's global commitment to democracy and freedom. At least trying to push back on any incursion from the forces of tyranny, with varying degree of success. For that it was known as the leader of the free world, and quite rightly so. It was never about how America used it's raw power and wealth, it was about how it used it. Trump has blown all that away. Seeing how Republican are manipulating the vote for their own ends, how its most powerful seem to be above the law, you have Third World style government corruption, and now the nail in the coffin of American greatness, the President declaring himself a Nationalist. As a frequent visitor to the US, with many friends there, this makes me so sad.

Screw Megan Kelly. This was done for attention. Gale is certainly on point commenting how smart Megan happens to be. Planned? Absolutely! Does Megan have America’s best interest at heart or did she just SUDDENLY get tired of being America’s “eye candy” and needed a little “me” time? Please leave your comments below.

When looked at in context, this was such a minor remark, even as compared to her previous racial comments. Such an over-reation to fire her. I'm a Person of Color and a Liberal, but you have to leave the conversation open to people with whom you disagree. She wasn't even condoning it. She was saying it was okay when she was a kid. While clearly impossible for it ever to be "okay" morally, it was definitely accepted in many communities at many points of our history. I don't doubt that a person raised amongst privileged whites in a Conservative sphere or area wouldn't realize that such a thing is sensitive until it is outright explained to her. Having a person like Megyn Kelly in the mainstream media conversation is good for democracy. We need to listen to each other in order to change and grow together.

Like the man says: "America is great because she is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, America will cease to be great." At the moment it is NOT 'good" anymore. It is easy to make a long list, starting with American State Child Trafficking (kidnapping babies; locking them up; intimidating and threatening their parents; then refusing to allow them to ever see them again; then adopting them out. Classic....) So, it looks like in a couple of weeks, the world gets to see if America still wants to be great, or has given up on being good.

She spent 11 minutes avoiding saying anything definitive. If he had said "Is the sky blue?" She'd have said "Some people seem to feel the sky is blue. I try to remain uninvolved in the discussion regarding the color of the sky." I'm sure that's a fine trait for a journalist, but she is a charisma-less void as a talk show guest. In order for a conversation to be interesting to listen to, both sides of it need to have an opinion. Everything he says, she deflects it. And her crowd pandering "I just love America!" crap is making my skin crawl. She really should just stick to reading other people's words off a teleprompter.

Gayle King, what planet are you on? Are you aware Black Lives Matter? Are you aware children are separated from their parents at the border? Are you aware of whats happening to Native Americans & their lands? Are you aware of the poverty that pervades the people of your colour? And historicaly; Vietnam/Cambodia, Central & South America especially Chile, the bullying of Cuba and recent history, the destruction of Iraq and Afganistan, the destruction of Libya, the bullying of Venezuela and now the attempted destruction of Syria. The US is not great, was never great, in fact based on all those events and the appointment of Kavanaugh indicates the US is the biggest s******e country in the world. You talked about not taking sides, just reporting the facts. You're either joking or lying, right?

Why do Americans always think the US is extra special? Every country is special. Every country is like no other. And no, the US is not the best country in the world - and also not the worst. Jesus. This is why Trump got elected. The Democrats are as stupid as Republicans. Both sides are full of nationalists.

If we are being honest, this is a bit overblown. At some point, we have to ALL stop looking for reasons to assume the worst and communicate. NBC will end up paying her tens of millions. They should be accustomed to doing that, having paid Anne Curry for years after taking her off of the Today show. Fox Entertainment News has done more harm to America than any single event in recent history.

Canada's elections make it easiest as possible for everybody to vote, regardless of bias, gender, race, religion, address issues, it's not perfect, yet they try. On and on, from myself, I'm glad the former Presidents was not hurt in the latest incident, I am hopeful for an easy peaceful election in the midterms, in US elections, seems Ms. Kelly wants it both ways, when I thought, Journalist, was supposed to be unbias, and not have personal opinions, this isn't the first time Journalist have gone through this in Canada, Barbra Frum Born in Niagara Falls, New York, she angered some when she had commented upon the She angered many when, on December 7, 1989 on The Journal, she refused to acknowledge that the École Polytechnique massacre, by a killer who proclaimed as he shot and stabbed women, "I hate feminists!" was an attack on women and feminism, saying: "Why do we diminish it by suggesting that it was an act against just one group?"There was comics cartoons of Barbara Frum having an interview with God, perhaps Megyn Kelly could have that interview herself? Think well of yourselves, and enjoy a conversation with strangers as you vote, never know what you can learn from each other? I wish the greatest Peace on earth in the world this election, and furture elections.

I think the entire Megyn Kelly story is blown out of proportion. She was imitating a celebrity who just happens to be black. Big deal. About 35 years ago, Eddie Murphy did a parody on SNL called "White Like Me." He was made up to look like a white man and he even made fun of whites, during the sketch. I don't remember anyone being up in arms about it at the time. This current political correctness is ridiculous and it needs to go. Incidentally, I'm a very liberal person, politically speaking. I just think that this is petty and stupid.

Gotta disagree with Gayle about "travel around, America is great, there's no place like America." When I started traveling, I felt just the opposite--that most places I went to were just about as enjoyable and free, if not more so, as America. It's hard to know from just a visit, but even just go to Canada. Clean. Safe. Better quality food. Universal healthcare. More open spaces. America is alright. Not great.
