Political commentator Megyn Kelly didn’t hold back her brutal opinion of Karine Jean-Pierre on a recent episode of her podcast.
Kelly labeled Jean-Pierre as the “worst White House Press Secretary ever.”
Jean-Pierre has faced widespread criticism for failing to answer simple questions and strictly reading her prepared notes over and over.
Kelly also slammed the left-wing magazine Vogue for publishing a “fawning profile” of the Biden press secretary.
First Lady Jill Biden said Jean-Pierre is “a pioneering White House press secretary” who “brings grace, integrity, and insight to the podium.”
Kelly responded, “You would think that she were like the first lady or some prime minister the way they did give her sort of the royal treatment.”
“And they have covered her like she is our true next leader who’s going to take us rhetorically into the next season,” she continued. “She’s got to be the worst White House press secretary ever. And I include Sean Spicer in there.”
Can't argue that.

Kelly continued, “She is up there rehearsing those banal answers, allegedly choosing her adjectives and verbs with fastidious care.”
“That’s the reason she’s there, very first black and lesbian White House Press Secretary – because we really needed those boxes to be checked,” Kelly said.
“She lies, they all do, but she lies every other day about Hunter Biden. She never answers the question, there is no integrity there and there’s certainly zero insight she’s provided since she took over the job.”
“Her and Karine Jean-Pierre are cut from the same cloth — actually saying absolutely nothing with tons of words toward that end. It is a skill it shouldn’t be underestimated … it’s an embarrassment,” Kelly said.
“So we’ll laugh at this because it’s obvious drivel. But the left wing press, they don’t like her. Even the Democrats don’t like her.”
“But remember what they did to Dan Quayle?” she added. “She’s not getting that treatment by the press …. Give it like another six months and you’ll get the hit piece on why we’re all sexist and misogynist and racists for having any fun at her expense whatsoever.”
Referring to Vice President Kamala Harris, Kelly admitted that, at first, “I did not think she was an idiot.”
“I now think she’s a moron,” Kelly continued. “She’s not that smart. Forgive me, I’m still one of those people who gets wooed by titles like, ‘She was the attorney general in state of California.’”
“You know, how dumb could she be? Like, dumb. The answer is very, very dumb,” she stated. “And I come to that conclusion just with my own eyes and ears from watching and listening to her. She cannot put two sentences together.”
