Megyn Kelly had some choice words for Karine Jean-Pierre on a recent episode of her podcast, going so far as to label her as the “worst White House Press Secretary ever” as she slammed Vogue Magazine for its recent fawning profile of her.
Can’t argue that.

Kelly Torches Jean-Pierre
Jill Biden gushed over Jean-Pierre to Vogue, describing her as “a pioneering White House press secretary” who “brings grace, integrity, and insight to the podium,” adding that her “calm, quiet confidence” is inspiring.
Kelly, however, was not having any of it.
“You would think that she were like the first lady or some prime minister the way they did give her sort of the royal treatment,” Kelly said, according to Daily Mail.
“And they have covered her like she is our true next leader who’s going to take us rhetorically into the next season,” she continued. “She’s got to be the worst White House press secretary ever. And I include Sean Spicer in there.”
In his profile of Jean-Pierre, Vogue author Mattie Kahn wrote, “Some in the press corps have complained that Jean-Pierre reads too much from her binder – that she sounds rehearsed. That is because she rehearses. In prep, she chooses adjectives and verbs with fastidious care.”

Kelly Reveals Real Reason Jean-Pierre Is In Her Role
Jean-Pierre claimed in the profile that while on the podium, she is never speaking in a personal capacity.

“I signed up to speak on behalf of this president,” she said. “That’s why he selected me.”
Once again, Kelly was not having it.
“That she is up there rehearsing those banal answers, allegedly choosing her adjectives and verbs with fastidious care,” she scoffed.
Kelly believes that Jean-Pierre is actually in her role because she is a black lesbian who is the daughter of Haitian immigrants and a single mother to a nine-year-old adopted daughter.
“That’s the reason she’s there, very first black and lesbian White House Press Secretary – because we really needed those boxes to be checked,” Kelly said. “She lies, they all do, but she lies every other day about Hunter Biden. She never answers the question, there is no integrity there and there’s certainly zero insight she’s provided since she took over the job.”

Kelly Rips Kamala Harris
Jean-Pierre isn’t the first person in the Joe Biden administration to come under fire from Kelly. Back in July, she used Jean-Pierre to rip into Vice President Kamala Harris.
“Her and Karine Jean-Pierre are cut from the same cloth — actually saying absolutely nothing with tons of words toward that end. It is a skill it shouldn’t be underestimated … it’s an embarrassment,” Kelly said. “So we’ll laugh at this because it’s obvious drivel. But the left wing press, they don’t like her. Even the Democrats don’t like her.”
“But remember what they did to Dan Quayle?” she added. “She’s not getting that treatment by the press …. Give it like another six months and you’ll get the hit piece on why we’re all sexist and misogynist and racists for having any fun at her expense whatsoever.”
Kelly went on to say that she initially gave Harris “the benefit of the doubt.”
“I did not think she was an idiot. I now think she’s a moron. She’s not that smart. Forgive me, I’m still one of those people who gets wooed by titles like, ‘She was the attorney general in state of California.’ You know, how dumb could she be? Like, dumb. The answer is very, very dumb,” she stated. “And I come to that conclusion just with my own eyes and ears from watching and listening to her. She cannot put two sentences together.”

Many will certainly agree with Kelly’s assessment of Jean-Pierre and others in the Biden administration. It’s maddening that these are the kinds of people leading us in our government these days.
