It looks like Megyn Kelly has had it up to here with people attacking her horrible morning talk show that NBC paid way too much money for. After months of negative press and reports from celebs who left her show feeling uneasy, Kelly is fighting back with some dirty tricks. After their plastic surgery conversation went wrong, Megyn Kelly attacked Jane Fonda for that infamous Hanoi Jane Vietnam photo she took in 1972.
Why Kelly brought up the Hanoi Jane Vietnam photo
Back in September 2017, Kelly sat down with Robert Redford and Jane Fonda to discuss their new film Our Souls at Night. But Kelly veered the conversation to dish about Fonda’s past plastic surgery instead. “You admit you had work done, which I think is to your credit. You look amazing. Why did you say — I read you felt you’re not proud to admit you had work done. Why not?”
“We really want to talk about that right now?” Fonda asked incredulously, seemingly shocked that Kelly would bring that up.
Fonda was quoted in the press after the interview revealing that she was shocked and caught off guard by the question. We’re guessing that Fonda is still dishing about it — as Kelly used the last few minutes of her program Monday morning to address Fonda’s comment. And she got dirty.

Speaking directly to the camera during the final minutes of her program, Kelly said she tried to brush it off, but claimed that Fonda “appears to be fixated on an exchange.”
“When she first complained, I chose to say nothing,” Kelly told her audience, adding, “It’s time to address the ‘poor me’ routine.”
Kelly said she has “no regrets about that question. Nor am I in the market for a lesson from Jane Fonda on what is or is not appropriate.”
Kelly then showed that infamous photo that shows Jane Fonda on a North Vietnamese anti-aircraft gun. The photo dubbed her “Hanoi Jane.”
Here is the Hanoi Jane Vietnam photo:
“This is a woman whose name is synonymous with outrage,” Kelly said. “Look at her treatment of our military during the Vietnam War. The moral indignation is a little much. Honesty, she has no business lecturing anyone on what qualifies as offensive.”
Fonda later apologized for the pic. “It hurts me and it will to my grave that I made a huge, huge mistake that made a lot of people think I was against the soldiers,” she said in 2015.
Kelly claims that apology wasn’t good enough. “Even she had to apologize years later for that gun picture but not for the rest of it. By the way, she still says she is not proud of America.”
