Sirius XM host Megyn Kelly isn’t shy when facing the camera or a liberal opponent. She lashed out at MSNBC on Friday saying that the leftist network “always makes excuses” for the “racism” of host Joy Reid.

This comment followed an interview Reid did with a black Republican congressman.

The MSNBC host asked Republican Rep. Byron Donalds of Florida if his nomination for House Speaker during the four-day drama that included a 15-ballot marathon was a “diversity statement.”

Reid declared to Donalds in the Tuesday controversial interview, “One of the things that, I don’t know if you said it, but members have said, is that they wanted to highlight the diversity of the conference,” Reid told Donalds Tuesday.

She went further saying that there were just four African American members in the Republican House caucus. She then made the point that there were 56 members in the Democratic caucus in the House and that it was much more diverse.

“So, do you not believe that the idea was to make a diversity statement by nominating [you]?” Reid asked Donalds.

Megyn Kelly said, “Honestly, if it had been a white anchor asking this question of Congressman Donalds there would be outrage. I guess she gets away with it because MSNBC always makes excuses for her racism against black people, against white people.”

The controversial interview has been viewed widely over social media, but there has been no reaction from MSNBC over the public’s outrage.

Kelly didn’t just target Reid, she also had criticism for Democratic Rep. Cori Bush of Missouri. He tweeted in early January that Donald’s nomination was “pathetic.”

Kelly said that Bush can always be counted on for something hateful and racist.

Kelly said because Donalds says Republican things, the left believes that he must be diminished and attacked, even if it is on the basis of his skin color.
