On HBO’s Real Time, host Bill Maher gave a backhanded compliment to Fox News host Megyn Kelly, admitting that she is awful, while at the same time lauding her for being the sanest of a bad bunch at Fox that includes Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity.
Addressing her less than artful comment that Dajerria Becton, the McKinney teen who was assaulted by officer Eric Casebolt, was “no saint,” Maher accused Kelly of being “overtaken by clueless white girl syndrome.”
“But of course now we’re at the inevitable stage where Rush Limbaugh and Fox News try to figure out how the victim was really a thug who had it coming, Maher explained. ” Megyn Kelly was talking sensibly the other day about the 15-year-old girl who had her face pushed down into the lawn, when suddenly Megyn was overtaken by clueless white girl syndrome, and she said the girl is no saint either.No saint, yeah, because she lingered.”
Maher the noted that Kelley reminded him of another blonde on TV, Daenerys Targaryen, the “Mother of Dragon’s” on HBO’s Game of Thrones.
“It reminded me, it’s that we think of Megyn Kelly as the sane one over there at Fox News. That’s just because she’s surrounded by Hannity and Bill O’Reilly,” Maher said. She’s like the blonde dragon girl on Game of Thrones. Everyone else is a zombie, or a dwarf, or f*cking their sister, so she looks normal.”
