The ex-Fox News and NBC host appears to suggest that unlike her, Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski are not real “journalists.”

Apparently still seething from her own NBC ouster over blackface comments, Megyn Kelly went after Kimmel in an early morning rant—invoking his decades-old blackface controversy.
