Conservative journalist Megyn Kelly said that the establishment media portrayed the Jan. 6 incursion into the U.S. Capitol “so much worse than it actually was” in a recent episode of her podcast. “We’ve all seen the video of people screaming in the face of cops, being totally disparaging, and defecating on the floor of the U.S. Capitol,” she said. “And lawmakers were understandably afraid, not like [Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez saying] ‘I need therapy for the rest of my life’ afraid, but I could understand it, and I didn’t like seeing it at all.” Kelly argued that most of the people who marched to the Capitol were being lumped into the bad behavior of the few who attacked Capitol Police officers and rampaged through the Capitol building. “But that doesn’t mean that’s what the entire crowd was there for,” she said. “So they got tarred by the actions of some losers who went a different way.” She added, “And then the media did what it does, which is any bad behavior gets attributed to the entire group of Trump supporters.” Kelly made the comments on an episode of “The Megyn Kelly Show” with comedian and independent journalist Chrissie Mayr.
