Megyn Kelly on Hillary Clinton’s Fun Side

Under the political facade is a woman who likes cocktails and dirty jokes.

Fox News host Megyn Kelly and Cosmopolitan editor Joanna Coles sat down this morning for a chat as part of Advertising Week, an annual week of events focused on advertising and media that is now in its 12th year.

This isn’t the first time the two have been in conversation, having previously participated together in two Facebook Q&As, the most recent of which celebrated Kelly passing 1 million likes on Facebook.

The interview touched on topics that included the ratings success that Kelly’s show has become, her opinions on Fox News’ political bent and the fact that, apparently, Hillary Clinton is someone who you would want to have a beer with. Kelly told Coles that those who know the candidate have depicted Clinton as “extremely warm and very likable.” Kelly continued:

I can’t tell you who it is, but somebody you would know, a very well-known military person told me that he loves Hillary. This is a Republican. Loves Hillary. That they’ve gone out drinking many times, she loves to have a couple of cocktails and laugh and tell dirty jokes. She can’t go out on the campaign trail and do that exactly, but we should see a little more of that.

Unsurprisingly, Donald Trump entered the conversation at one point, and Kelly engaged in a few questions about him before telling Coles she was over it. “I don’t want to talk about Donald Trump any more, truly,” she said.
