Fox News host Megyn Kelly has some news about women — but not everyone's on board.

Speaking of women swearing in the workplace, this clip is pretty damn awesome.

Megyn Kelly is a TV news anchor (not to be confused with, well, me), who hosts "The Kelly File" on Fox News. She's usually known for her pretty conservative viewpoints, but every once in a while she'll casually smack down the sexist remarks of her guests and colleagues, and it's an utter delight to watch. Case in point:


She invited Mike Huckabee, the former governor of Arkansas, onto her show to discuss a chapter of his new book, "God, Guns, Grits, and Gravy." (Yes, that's a real book title.)

In it — and a follow-up quote — Huckabee essentially says that city culture and rural culture are different (*shocking* revelation, that). He says that swearing in the workplace — specifically, women swearing in the workplace — would be considered "trashy" in parts of the country. Needless to say, he disapproves.

Kelly calmly and professionally discusses Huckabee's point with him for a FULL FIVE MINUTES before nonchalantly bringing it all home ...

Huckabee laughs at her — HE LAUGHS AT HER — and still refuses to accept this radical idea.

But Megyn Kelly is totally unfazed.

GO MEGYN GO. To catch the whole clip with all the context leading up to her fantastic remarks, watch it below:

I live in Washington, the state with the first official outbreak of COVID-19 in the U.S. While my family lives several hours from Seattle, it was alarming to be near the epicenter—especially early in the pandemic when we knew even less about the coronavirus than we know now.

As tracking websites went up and statistics started pouring in, things looked hairy for Washington. But not for long. We could have and should have shut everything down faster than we did, but Governor Inslee took the necessary steps to keep the virus from flying completely out of control. He's consistently gotten heat from all sides, but in general he listened to the infectious disease experts and followed the lead of public health officials—which is exactly what government needs to do in a pandemic.

As a result, we've spent the past several months watching Washington state drop from the #1 hotspot down to 23rd in the nation (as of today) for total coronavirus cases. In cases per million population, we're faring even better at number 38. We have a few counties where outbreaks are pretty bad, and cases have slowly started to rise as the state has reopened—which was to be expected—but I've felt quite satisfied with how it's been handled at the state level. The combination of strong state leadership and county-by-county reopenings has born statistically impressive results—especially considering the fact that we didn't have the lead time that other states did to prepare for the outbreak.
