With respect, Megyn Kelly: I’m not usually a “listen to your elders” kind of guy, because your elders are usually old white dudes who started yelling at clouds from their lawns around the turn of the century. But this is Tom Brokaw we’re talking about. He’s a goddamn institution. The man was covering Watergate while you were still waiting for your White Santa to show up on Christmas Day. And Brokaw ain’t some lefty loon. He’s a goddamn cornfed Nebraskan who has been covering the news for 53 years, and most likely, he did your show, Mrs. Kelly, as a favor, because NBC thought a little of his legitimacy might rub off on you.
So, you know, maybe don’t cut Mr. Brokaw off when he mentions the NRA. That commercial break will fucking hold until the man can finish his thought. We don’t “gotta leave it at that,” Megyn. Let the man speak his mind. Give him more than 45 seconds before you cut him off. He’s earned that right. Show some respect. If you really want to have an “honest conversation,” then don’t interrupt the man when he’s trying to say something salient about the National Rifle Association.
