Fox News host Megyn Kelly reportedly criticized an interview Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton gave in which she discussed a singer’s on-stage indecent exposure, according to a report published Tuesday in the New York Post.
Performer Lenny Kravitz’s penis popped out of his pants while he performed on stage last month. The incident was captured on video and shared on social media.
Golden Globe winner Lena Dunham asked Clinton if she had seen the footage during an interview with the former secretary of state for her newsletter with “Girls” executive producer Jenni Konner.
“No, I missed that. Do you think I could get that on YouTube?” Clinton asked Dunham. “I’ll look for that.”
Kelly took issue with the comment and said during New York Advertising Week that it was “not really fitting” for a presidential candidate to say, according to the report.
“I don’t necessarily think it serves (Clinton) to . . . talk about (Kravitz’s), you know. You’re still trying to convince people . . . (to) see me as your president…” Kelly was quoted by the publication. “It’s a tough balance between being relatable and showing a softer side, and still maintaining the dignity of the office that you seek.”
