"There is no question the media represented it as so much worse than it actually was," Kelly said to guest Chrissie Mayr.
The Washington Examiner reported:
After comedian Chrissie Mayr told Kelly during her Monday podcast that she attended former President Donald Trump's "Stop the Steal" rally outside the White House that preceded the Capitol attack, Kelly agreed that "there is no question" the media misrepresented the event, making it out to be "so much worse than it actually was," though she did describe some of the mayhem caught on video.
"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 [Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez saying] 'I need therapy for the rest of my life' afraid, but I could understand it, and I didn't like seeing it," Kelly said.
