Megyn Kelly has slammed celebrity Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), describing her as a “moron” who is more like a “Kardashian in Congress” than a professional lawmaker.
Former Fox News host Kelly was responding after socialist AOC called for some Supreme Court justices to be impeached for the overturning of Roe v. Wade.
Kelly joined Newsmax’s Eric Bolling on Monday night to discuss the public fallout from Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.
The SCOTUS ruling has triggered widespread outrage from the Left after it overruled Roe and rolled back the federal protections for abortion rights.
While speaking about the reaction from Democrats, Bolling said Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is “coming at the judges pretty darn hard.”
“Well, I’ll distinguish between the two because I think AOC is a moron,” Kelly responded.
“I think Elizabeth Warren is smart — she’s ideological and not necessarily aligned with you or with myself — but I think AOC is not that smart, and she really just wants to be a star.
“She’s sort of a Kardashian in Congress,” Kelly said, likening the congresswoman to members ofthe reality TV show family.
“I guarantee you she hasn’t read the decision, and I guarantee you she has no understanding of what substantive due process is, or the history of any of what she’s talking about.”
Kelly said AOC’s impeachment push was “ridiculous,” saying it “will go nowhere,” before adding “all the justices play a little fast and loose with how they’re going to decide cases and how they’re going to treat precedent.”
She continued: “These guys haven’t done anything wrong.
“They have interpreted the Constitution according to their judicial philosophy.
“People like Maxine Waters are out there saying we’re not going to follow it.
“You know what? You know what I have to say to her?
“Yes, you are.
“You are going to have to follow it.
“Sorry, but your state is no longer going to perform abortions if you’re in a redder state, alright?
“She’s not, but women who are, are not going to be able to find abortions because the clinics are going to close down because doctors don’t want to go to prison.
“It’s called federalism, and if they would just continue reading the Constitution, some of these things might become clear to them without you and/or yours truly having to explain it,” she said.
