In a new Podcast episode, Megyn Kelly said the media made the U.S. Capitol riot that took place January 6th to be “so much worse than it actually was.”
Comedian Chrissie Mayr told Kelly she had attended Trump’s “stop the steal” rally that preceded the U.S. Capitol attack January 6th.
Kelly then said “there is no question” the media misrepresented the event, making it out to be “so much worse than it actually was.”
Kelly then discussed the aftermath and reaction of Democrats.
“We’ve all seen the video of people, like, screaming in the face of cops, being totally disparaging, and defecating on the floor of the U.S. Capitol, and lawmakers were understandably afraid — not like [AOC] ‘I need therapy for the rest of my life’ afraid, but I could understand it, and I didn’t like seeing it,” she said.
AOC said in May “Yeah. Oh yeah. I’m doing therapy, but also, I’ve just slowed down I think the Trump administration had a lot of us, especially the Latino communities, in a very reactive mode, and so I’ve been putting myself in a more proactive space.”
“I think after [Jan. 6], I took some time — and it was really Ayanna Pressley. I explained to her what happened to me, like, the day of because I ran to her office, and she was like, ‘You need to recognize trauma,’” AOC added.
