It a war of the words as Megyn Kelly blasted comedian Sarah Silverman over the post the celeb made in response to one of President Trump’s tweets.
It all started when Sen. Amy Klobuchar announced that she would be running in the 2020 presidential election. She made the announcement during a snowstorm, which was too tempting a target for Trump to pass up.
Of course, for every Republican action there must be a Democratic over-reaction. In this instance it was flagging comedian Sarah Silverman who flew off the handle.
She responded with an excessively crude tweet, writing, “No point in explaining how mind blowingly stupid this tweet is so I’m just gonna go with F*** YOU and also add that you are a smelly penis hole with balls that touch water. Eat s***, you greedy t**t.”
It was here that Kelly jumped in the ring, pointing out how awful it was that Silverman use such language and yet continues to work in children’s entertainment.
“This woman wants to star in children’s movies produced by Disney. And just did in ‘Ralph Breaks the Internet,’” Kelly tweeted.
The left leaning celeb did respond to Kelly although she completely side stepped the issue of what influence her filthy mouth might have had.
“It’s true! I am a blue explicit often political comedian and also love doing voices for children. I know it’s easier if people are one thing but no one is, not even you! We all have many sides and I think that’s OK. Peace Ma,” Silverman posted
“Ps,” she added, “I’m more offended by a president who denies a real threat 97% of scientists beg him to take action on while creating a fake threat out of at-risk brown people at the border.”
Having made her point and not finding an argument worth having, Kelly respectably let that be the end of it.
