Skip to comments.Megyn Kelly Rips Kirsten Powers To Shreds!

I love a good fight and this one certainly doesnt disappoint! I enjoyed every singled second of this video as if it were the last couple bites of my favorite ice cream! Megyn Kelly obliterates Kirsten Powers with her facts and debating prowess, leaving Kirsten to stutter and sputter her way through her illogical and uninformed defense of the DOJ Black Panther case. I typically wont spend nine minutes on any video but this one is worth it! Take a few minutes and enjoy!
Powers is an idiot, was unprepared and apparently was just expecting she’d get a pass for being a token liberal.
Typical liberal argument, the facts don’t matter, only her opinion matters. Saw this yesterday, it was hilarious.
kinda hot, though
Megan Kelly is sharp as a tack. I watched her debate some libtard a while back on immigration “reform” and she very nearly reduced the dude to tears. It was hilarious!
That wouldn’t be difficult to do.
If Powers misplaces her talkingpoints memo, she would be lost. Powers is just a mouthpiece.
Sadly, it is similar to the time the sports guy, Brian Kilmeade, tried to debate Janeane Garofalo, who wouldn’t compete with him intellectually.
Kelly is really good. Powers has shown her lack of gray matter before.
Kelly is about the best female news presenter out there. I would bet she was a great attorney.
I don't go for stupid girls...now Megyn is another story all together.
Megan is a super talent.
The black panter story is starting to seep into the MSM.Partly, because of yesterday dust-up!
That has got to be one of the most stupid, irrelevant repies ever.
That has got to be one of the most stupid, irrelevant repies ever. Only a 16 year old male in heat idiot liberal could ever make an excuse for ignorance by saying, "well it's all right, cause she is hot".
Gotta disagree, my friend, and actually, it’s a good thing. Aside from being one of the few reasonably attractive and feminine Dem talking heads, Powers is farily, intelligent, an asture political operative, and more towards the center than the vast majority of Dems. In the past, she’s been willing to criticize the Obama administration often. The fact that she attempted to dismiss the Philly Black Panther voter intimidation video as “move on, no big deal here,” IMHO shows just how much the Dems fear that it will in fact become a REALLY BIG DEAL, and blow up in their faces.. Powers is a Fox regular, often appears on the panel on Bret’s show, and has even done the Fox News Sunday show a few times...so she’s one of the semi-regulars. I think she thought she’d be allowed to spout her blather as a counter to the GOP talking head, with Megyn as the “fair and balanced” moderator. What changed the dynamic was when Megyn became actively involed in the debate, and took off on Powers, saying that Powers didn’t know “what she was talking about” and effectively calling her an idiot on live TV..That’s just not done..
Maybe you need to spend just a bit more time around here, pipsqueak, before writing such hilarious, defensive, insult.
How many different blogs are gonna use this video to pimp themselves?
Powers in not only an idiot, she is a vile human being. She twists the truth and I don’t know about the rest of you but I am sick of these vermin being given a platform to spread their venom. FOX needs to get rid of her, and so should the Post.
All Megyn did was show Kristen didn't read the testimony of the whistleblower, and Kristen kept emphasizing why should she since there was an injunction against the perps? Also, what was very lame is Kristen bringing up Bush and without relaying one example tried to equate it to Bushes policies. Which was totally ludicrous.
I admire Megyn greatly, but she didn't slay it...
So where we differ is I'm saying she's stupid for thinking she could get away with such a patently stupid argument and you think she's just being exceedingly dishonest like a typical liberal.
Stupid or dishonesty...either trait makes her unattractive in my eyes.
oh, btw...I think you're correct, Powers thought she'd get a pass as most guests do, but her lie was so blatantly offensive Megyn wasn't willing to let the lie go unchallenged. Maybe she should have let her conservative proponent do it, but I have to admit, I have a similar personality "flaw"...I hate dishonesty.
LOL......the blond bimbo switched positions at every turn.
How pathetic. I wonder if she’ll dare to watch herself on re-run.
On July 2, I turned Michael Medved on only to hear a caller telling him how the Black Panther case showed that Obama & co. were trying to payback whites. To my astonishment Medved said he hadnt heard of the case. When the caller continued talking Medved said that he had a VAGUE memory of it. He then interrupted the caller and asked him if he thought the only reason Obama won was because of the Black Panthers. All the time using that are you nuts tone. Thats when I turned it off.
Probably the best exchange I’ve seen on FOX in a very long time. Kelly just blew Powers out of the water without even breathing hard, and Powers never struck a blow. And came off looking totally unprepared as well.
As incredibly attractive as Kelly is, I’m really glad I’m not her husband. Can you imagine NEVER being able to win even the smallest of disagreements? “But dear, I DID put the seat down, and that’s from the SHOWER, not ME...”
Next thing you know, you’re back sleeping with the dog.
I tend to agree. Very few of the “Host x destroyed flatulent lib y” tend to be as good as advertised.
An injunction, Kirsten? So what? This "punishment" is supposed to discourage future lawlessness? How does an injunction do that?
Would not a large fine and incarceration perhaps show more seriousness on the part of the DOJ and dispel the charges of the whistleblower?
Megyn Kelly really impresses me. She’s well informed, sharp, and not willing to take crap from an opponent. She never lost control of the interview and made her points.
Stupid maybe, but irrelevant never.
I’d rather watch Megyn at 8 pm than Ted Baxter.
But I thought Megyn was a bit over the top. She's a lawyer; she should have let Kirsten take plenty of rope (let her finish a sentence or two), then gut her with the socratic method.
We 16 year olds deserve a voice too. Don't oppress me.
Kirsten uses the same tactics everytime she participates in a discussion....spewing talking points over the other person. She doesn’t answer questions or offer intelligent conversation. She just spews and keeps her lips moving.
Hopefully it'll be done more often in the future though.
On Morning Joe today, they showed a clip, and Scarborough said, “I’m glad I’m where I’m at”.
I guess he meant kinda like the Dixie Chicks, you know-smaller, more intimate venues with fewer people listening...
I think there’s more to the story.
I can understand Megan being POd about Kirstin trying to buffalo her, and to insinuate that she didn’t think this as a big deal,
I’m wondering if there was some friction between these two behind the scenes, that escalated to a boiling point.
Of late, I’ve found Kirstin fairly coherent and reasonable, although she is a pro Hillary democrat/liberal and all arguments begin there.
By Tap-out! ...Due to a rear-naked choke!
Michael Medved is a reformed liberal. I have decided he's not reformed ENOUGH.
Ping for home viewing.
Powers and the rest of the demo yappers must go to classes periodically where they receive instruction on how to present these lame responses. That was hilarious. I got the feeling that Kelly does not like Powers...kinda like my feelings.
That's actually a very good point. But the problem with liberals is they don't hold themselves to any standards when it comes to their contentions. Lying, obfuscating, muddying it up, red herring, strawman, filibustering, they have no standards and more importantly do not respect the engagement of logic rules. Most are valueless! (ie Kristen trying to bring up Bush in the same vein, and so forth...)
Megyn definitely won the debate, but she was trying too hard and was a little too miffed to argue her righteous points. My dirty little secret though is I could watch that segment over and over because at least there is someone out there who is TRYING to be an objective journalist!
Of late, Ive found Kirstin fairly coherent and reasonable, although she is a pro Hillary democrat/liberal and all arguments begin there.
I don't watch nearly as much TV as I used to, so I've only seen her a few times and she always came across as a rough equivalent of Juan Williams...sometimes reasonable if not a firm kool aid drinker, but I've also seen her be very disingenuous...which is pretty typical of liberals in my experience.
She is absolutely, Kristin that is, the worst talk show host. Everytime, I’ve seen her in the capicity of subing for someone, she tries to out shout the other person.
Alam Colmes was good at that too, but w Kristin it’s a shoutin match.
Another thing, and this is just my observation, do you ever notice how truly sad and depressed liberal women are on these shows?
I mean, I know nothing about Kristin Powers, but I’d wager that she has an awful love life.
ON the other hand, the conservativ gals, (just about all of them), are always laughing, giddy, healthy looking....
Makes you wonder about liberalism being a mental disorder....
You know, humbuggunner... you gave me an “almost compliment” the other day and it was delightful. Thank you! However, I need to remind you that I ALWAYS post articles in full....NEVER excerpts... and the only time I don’t is when I have to link a video. So, please stop lumping me and those of us at Liberty Juice with the rest of those who don’t. Thanks.
Did you know that you can link to videos that aren't embedded on your blog?
You really can! You can actually allow folks to click on the video right where you stole it from!
I gave your buddy Chris a compliment today, but also later had to call out his plagiarism. So it goes.
And again, if you spent as much time doing things that are meaningful as you do spending correcting folks, you could probably be a person that makes a difference in this world. But you are an enormous time waster and won’t be remembered for anything but that. There is a blogger section for a reason, if you don’t like us, don’t visit this section. Period.
