Megyn Kelly Says Putin Manipulated Her

( Former Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly recently revealed how she was manipulated by Russian President Vladimir Putin when she interviewed him in 2017 and 2019.

During a recent episode of Kelly’s new SiriusXM podcast, The Megyn Kelly Show, she discussed how Putin manipulates people with anti-Putin activist Garry Kasparov.

Kasparov, who is also a Russian chess champion, left Russia and was forced into exile after he ran against Putin in a presidential election. He told Kelly how Putin uses KGB tactics to maintain control over Russia, and in the way he has handled the invasion of Ukraine.

He also described how Putin tried to present himself as a born-again Christian to President George W. Bush, describing how he was baptized in the Soviet Union and wears a cross given to him by his mother.

“Bush, a devoted Christian — he bought the story. It created a bond and we should give Putin credit, you know, he knew how to work with people,” he said.

It prompted Kelly to recall her experiences with Putin, saying that he did exactly the same thing with her. Kelly described how she spent quite a lot of time with the Russian president over three interviews, and that the first thing he picked up on was how she was the mother of three children and how much his own mother meant to him.

“It was obvious manipulation,” she said.

It’s hardly the biggest sin that Putin has committed, but it says a lot about his character, doesn’t it?
