Say what, sir? Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly slammed an anti–gay marriage activist who appeared on The Kelly File this past Wednesday, January 6, with a simple eye roll and laser-sharp rebuttals, and it was all captured on air.
National Organization for Marriage president Brian Brown appeared as a guest on The Kelly File, where he discussed the Alabama State Supreme Court chief justice's order to stop same-sex marriages — even though the Supreme Court of the United States legalized same-sex marriages across the United States last June in a historic ruling.
"The Supreme Court has the final say on what the law is!" Kelly said to Brown as he attempted to make his case. "This was established long ago in Marbury v. Madison. But here's my question to you … how does this unfold, aren't we going to have chaos now if states are individually allowed to decide which Supreme Court decisions they're gonna comply with and which they're not."
"I think you're misreading Marbury v. Madison," Brown replied. "You're essentially saying that Abraham Lincoln was wrong. We've had horrible Supreme Court decisions that were not constitutional. In Buck v. Bell …"
Kelly, clearly vexed, looked casually over her right shoulder and rolled her eyes. "There's a procedure for that," she said with an exasperated tone. "You go back to the legislature and ask them to pass a law."
As Brown continued to argue his case, Kelly kept a straight face. At one point, she shook her head slightly in disbelief. As he continued to talk, she simply replied with a "k."
Then, bringing the segment to a swift conclusion: "Interesting take on it," she said. "Brian, thank you so much for being here. We appreciate it."
