Top podcaster and former Fox News host Megyn Kelly took aim at an MSNBC rival, accusing her of being one of the biggest racists on the air today.
She called host Tiffany Cross “the most racist person on television” over Cross’ misinformed comments about the NFL’s handling of Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa’s concussion.
As she often does, Cross saw it as an issue of race: “To see all these black men crashing into each other with a bunch of white owners, White coaches, and the complete disregard for black bodies and black life. I mean, it just represents a larger issue.”
It should be noted that no one forces anyone to play professional football, and in fact, men compete ferociously every year to earn a spot on an NFL team. And most are well-compensated for their play.
But more so in this instance, Kelly noted that Tagovailoa isn’t even black — he’s from Hawaii and is American Samoan, labeling Cross’ remark “stunningly racist.”
“He’s not black. Hello? You dumbass, Tiffany Cross,” Kelly ripped.
“She’s the most racist person on television. It’s amazing. Maybe she just doesn’t see color,” Kelly continued.
“Anyway, he’s not black, but according to her he is. Oh, and by the way, his coach isn’t white either,” she noted further. “I wasn’t planning on starting with this moron, Tiffany Cross, but it’s so good. He’s Samoan and his coach is mixed race.
“Had a white parent and a black parent. So, anyway, he’s not white. I guess in Tiffany’s world that’s white,” Kelly went on. “But in any event, this person sees everything through a ‘it’s racist’ prism.”
Clay Travis, founder of Outkick, also chimed in: “MSNBC host says Tua wasn’t protected because he’s black and has a white head coach. She went 0-2. Tua isn’t black and he has a black head coach. Amazingly stupid TV here from MSNBC.”
