‘Squat ruins the toilet seat’: Megyn Kelly says she never got any ‘weird diseases’ sitting on public toilets
Megyn Kelly supported women using public restrooms to pee while she also imparted an instance when one of her family friends demanded to be reseated while traveling by plane as an individual next to her kept on farting. “There’s a difference between men and women,” Kelly said on Wednesday, October 19, during her discussion about public bathrooms with television host Mike Rowe on her SiriusXM podcast.
“Men can pee standing up,” the host of 'The Megyn Kelly Show' said. “[A man] can walk into that crime scene and be like, ‘I’m good. I can aim it. I don’t really have to touch anything in here. I can use my hand sanitizer and get back to my seat.” According to Kelly, the situation becomes much more complicated when it comes to women, especially if they are traveling by air. “You don’t want to do the squat,” Kelly said. “I don’t like to squat anyway. The squat ruins the toilet seat for the rest of us. It gets the pee all over there", reported the New York Post.
“I’ve been sitting on toilet seats my whole life — even public toilet seats,” Kelly continued. “I’ve never gotten any weird diseases. So I’m just saying it’s safe. You won’t fall in the toilet. Sit on the seat, but clean the seat first.” She added that, unlike men, women “have no choice but to clean it up." Rowe however countered Kelly's claims saying that women have the upper hand as if it becomes difficult for men to urinate in an airplane bathroom if there’s turbulence.
“It’s like a firehose in there,” Kelly said of men peeing mid-flight. “But we’re safe. We know exactly where it’s going to go. There’s no problem.” Kelly then spoke about an incident where one of her family friends sat next to someone who was continuously passing gas. “We have a friend of the family…who’s in her early eighties,” Kelly said. “She’s always been one of those prim and proper ladies, just together. She went on an airplane and the woman next to her kept blowing off." Kelly said her family friend then “presses the overhead call button” and asked the flight attendant if she could sit elsewhere. “The flight attendant comes over and our friend says, ‘I’m sorry, but you’re going to have to move me. This woman has terrible flatulence’,” Kelly said. “That’s a boss move,” she added.
Kelly broke into laughter on air during the podcast episode while co-anchoring a Fox News show more than 10 years ago as one of her guests mistakenly said the word “farting", reports New York Post. “I was hosting a debate between a right-wing radio host and a left-wing radio host and the righty was accusing the lefty of being soft on terror,” Kelly said adding that this was at the time of George W Bush era, which included the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. “The Iraq war was going on and the lefty was feeling defensive about the Democrats,” Kelly said during her conversation with Rowe.
She recalled that the “lefty” declared, "We’re going to fight the terrorists no matter where they are, no matter where they’re farting — fighting", as they were about to cut to a commercial. Kelly then laughed uncontrollably and said, “I died, I died.”
