Former Fox News personality Megyn Kelly lashed out at two of her former competitors during a Friday night appearance on HBO’s “Real Time.”

Host Bill Maher asked about her about the direction of her former network.

“There are personalities there that went hard right during the Trump administration,” Kelly said. “Like, Maria Bartiromo sounded very different than when I was there. Lou Dobbs kind of sounded the same as he always did.”

“But when I look at him, I don’t think he’s any more committed to his hard-right partisanship than Don Lemon is committed to his hard-left partisanship. The cable networks are doing that now, they’re leaning into the far-right and the far-left.”

The host pushed back on her comparison.

“Okay, I agree there’s crazy on both sides, but that’s a false equivalency, don’t you think? Because what Lou Dobbs believes is that the election was stolen. I mean, I don’t agree with Don Lemon on everything, but he’s not living in an alternative reality,” Maher noted.

“Well, I don’t know about that,” Kelly replied.

“But look at Rachel Maddow and Russiagate,” Kelly said, using the framing Trump pushed while pretending it was a hoax.

“She went totally down the rabbit hole and was embarrassed by that,” Kelly argued. “Lou Dobbs, same thing on the crazy election claims.”

“So there’s plenty of blame to go around,” she argued.
