The truth behind Megyn Kelly's feud with Jane Fonda

On this morning's installment of Megyn Kelly Today, the host chose to give us "a word on Jane Fonda", who Kelly believes is "fixated on an exchange" they shared months ago.

Later that week, Kelly struck again while interviewing Jane Fonda and Robert Redford for their film Our Souls at Night.

Kelly went months without responding to Fonda's clear issue with the question, but ultimately made a decision to react to what she called Fonda's "poor-me routine" because Fonda won't let it go. "Who are you, Megyn Kelly?".

It was also joked about when Fonda and Lily Tomlin appeared last week on an earlier hour of "Today".

Variety featured an interview with Fonda on Saturday asking if Kelly's question about plastic surgery upset her, to which the actress responded, "I was stunned".

'Fit For Duty': White House Physician Sees No Concerns About Trump's Health
Presidents aren't required to get a checkup, but modern presidents do so regularly and release a doctor's report on the findings. But the USA president performed "exceedingly well" on cognitive screening, which is not standard but was requested by Trump.

Kelly reacted to Fonda's criticism on her show, "Megyn Kelly Today", on Monday.

In a monologue at the end of her "Today" show, Kelly used Fonda's controversial Vietnam War protest to argue that the actress "has no business lecturing anyone on what qualifies as offensive".

On Monday, her publicist sent reporters a comprehensive list, with video clips, of instances when Fonda discussed her plastic surgery, including an interview with The Hollywood Reporter in 2015.

"I gave her the chance to empower other women, young and old, on a subject she purports to know well and she rejected it". That's okay. But I have no regrets about the question. She added, "After all, this is a woman whose name is synonymous with outrage". Many of our veterans still call her Hanoi Jane thanks to her radio broadcast which attempted to shame Americans troops.

From there, Kelly spun a yarn about how Fonda had an obligation to answer her questions about plastic surgery because she herself speaks about aging in public.

Zuckerberg announces Facebook is ready to change the 'bulletin board'
Zuckerberg said he expects the time people spend on Facebook and some measures of engagement will go down as a result of the move. But publishers must become more strategic about how they use Facebook if they want to keep getting value from the channel.

Kelly ended the segment by saying that Fonda's "moral indignation is a little much." .

Fonda said in 2011 that she didn't mean to offend people with the photo, writing in a post to her website that she wasn't aware of where she was sitting. "The host said she'd grown tired of Fonda's "'poor-me' routine", and she insisted that Fonda can not have "an honest discussion" about aging without addressing her own surgeries. "It shows that she's not that good an interviewer". She later publicly apologized for her actions.

"She said the same to 'Entertainment Tonight, ' " said Kelly, referring to Fonda's openness about her history. Why, after all, didn't Kelly present these critiques of Fonda during that September interview? She called our POW's hypocrites and liars and referred to their torture as understandable.

"For years, [Fonda] has spoke about the joy of giving a cultural face to older women", Kelly said. Shortly after, however, producers quickly tweeted out the segment before Kelly even came on air, according to Fox News.
