Megyn Kelly famously got under Donald Trump’s skin during a 2015 debate. Now the former Fox News talker is taking on Jane Fonda over her skin.

Or her “work,” as Kelly referred to the 80-year-old Fonda’s cosmetic surgery.

Fonda is still fuming over a Kelly interview question last September, telling Variety: “I was stunned [by the plastic surgery question]. It was so inappropriate. It showed that she’s not that good an interviewer.”

Kelly, now with NBC, shot back Monday in a face-the-camera rebuttal.

“It’s time to address the poor-me routine,” Kelly said. “First, some context. Fonda was on to promote a film about aging. For years she has spoken openly about her joy in giving a cultural face to older women.”

“But I have no regrets about the question. Nor am I in the market for a lesson from Jane Fonda on what is and is not appropriate. After all, this is a woman whose name is synonymous with outrage,” showing images from Fonda’s “Hanoi Jane” Vietnam trip of 1972.

Kelly added: “By the way she still says she’s not proud of America. So, the moral indignation is a little much. She put her plastic surgery out there. She said she wanted to discuss the plight of older women in America. And honestly she has no business lecturing anyone on what qualifies as offensive.”

Foes of Fox News took offense at Kelly.
