Megyn Kelly rebuked Senator Kamala Harris on Tuesday, October 6, for a series of facial expressions the California Democrat made during the vice presidential debate, suggesting that there are several ways to deal with a political opponent. Taking to Twitter, the former Fox News and NBC News star advised Harris to take Vice President Pence's arguments "like a woman" and "not make faces," The Hill reported.

Following Kelly's remarks, A&E's Elizabeth Vargas, formerly of ABC News, appeared to take offense. "Take it like a woman?" Vargas tweeted in response.  "Instead of 'like a man,' We can be stoic too," Kelly explained.



 



 



 

Kelly's reaction came as part of a wave of mixed reactions to Harris' facial expressions — which ranged from smirking to smiling to glaring — at the 2020 vice presidential debate held in Salt Lake City, Utah. "I truly couldn't sympathize more with her having this problem but the smirking, eye rolls, angry laughing, general facial expressions, etc. need to be dialed down about 200 notches," Fox News contributor Mollie Hemingway tweeted.

"Kamala Harris' facial expressions for president," Mother Jones reporter Jamilah King chimed in. "If the last debate was an argument between a reality TV show family, this an argument between the most passive-aggressive family on the block, with more heavy sighs and dour looks than shouting," NBC reporter Alex Seitz-Wald wrote, before adding, "Big Jim-From-The-Office-Shooting Looks-At-The-Camera energy from Kamla Harris." "The face Kamala Harris made when Mike Pence stated that she and Joe Biden are going to overthrow the Supreme Court with court-packing," The Daily Wire reporter Ryan Saavedra tweeted.



 



 



 



 

 

Many, however, did not seem to take Kelly's words too kindly. "That is a truly unfortunate selection of words you've chosen to use. Women are often told that exact same thing when forced into horrendous situations. DELETE THIS TWEET," one wrote. "Pence is doing his own head-shaking and eye-rolling, Megyn," a second added. "Be better, Megyn. Expressing disgust at lies, deception and constantly being talked over — is worth reaction," former Obama aide Bill Burton wrote.

"She’s fantastic. She’s clear, she’s strong. She’s grounded in facts and plans. She looks human and real and transparent, and is channeling all of us. Meanwhile, Pence looks like he’s fighting Covid," one Harris-backer responded to Kelly. "Don’t you have a show in the morning to prepare for? I’m kidding. Of course, you don’t. You’re unhireable," another added.



 



 



 



 



 

Vice President Pence and Senator Harris came face-to-face in the only vice presidential Debate this year on Wednesday night, October 7, at the University of Utah's Kingsbury Hall in Salt Lake City. The two spoke on a variety of topics — from coronavirus to climate change. During the debate, a fly or some kind of bug landed on Pence's hair for several minutes as he answered questions and responded to Harris. Soon, the fly became a social media sensation and many netizens crowned it the ultimate winner of the debate.

Nonetheless, the next debate will be held on Thursday, October 15, between President Donald Trump and his Democratic challenger Joe Biden. The event will reportedly be held virtually in light of Trump's Covid-19 diagnosis last week.
