Maher Goes Off on Megyn Kelly: Trump Interview Was ‘A Profile in Cowardice!’

maherBill Maher got a little teed off tonight after guest Matt Welch name-dropped Megyn Kelly as an example of one of the journalists who are best at nailing down people like Donald Trump.

Maher said the media love of Kelly was so overblown because all it took was “one tough question at the debate” to get the “stupid media” to deem her a genius.

He pointed out it was Kelly who was “begging him for an interview,” said nothing would be out of bounds, and then kept it mostly light (though she did confront him about his attacks on her). Maher said, “You know what was out of bounds? Journalism.”

He concluded, “It was a profile in cowardice!”
