Megyn Kelly Opens A Can Of Whoop-Ass On Judgy-Wudgy Fox News Guest

  • Watch Fox News’ Megyn Kelly decimate her pompous blowhard guest, who is judgmentally arguing that stay-at-home-moms are “better” for all kids. Erick Erickson is the editor of a conservative website who wrote a piece — in response to a Pew report this week that 40 percent of moms are family breadwinners [second item] — which Kelly rightfully found “offensive.” Erickson argued that moms working outside the home are against science and harmful to kids; a full report on the sexist drivel is here at Media Matters.  The way Kelly hands him his classist, sexist ass on a silver platter is glorious.
