"Megyn Kelly Today" took a 10 percent drop in both overall viewers as well as the key demo in its second episode according to early stats.
What do you think Megyn Kelly will have to say to Debra Messing's comment? "I don't know about the lawyer thing, but I think that Will & Grace thing and the gay thing is going to work out great", Kelly said.
"Do we really want to talk about that now?" replied Fonda, looking around bewilderedly and then towards Redford seemingly asking, "Is this really happening?"
"Megyn Kelly Today" also dropped in overall viewers and the key demo from its lead in, while also being down from this time one year ago when Al Roker and Tamron Hall were hosting 'Today's Take'.
As Kelly attempted to take another swipe at the question, telling her guest, "Well, one of the things people think about when they look at you, is how incredible you look.", Fonda quickly changed the subject, stating, "Thanks".
In response to Kelly, Fonda credited her "good attitude, good posture", and taking care of herself as reasons for how she looks now.
Changing the subject, the actress added, "But let me tell you why I love this movie that we did, Our Souls at Night, rather than plastic surgery".
Fonda was surprised by the question.
Kelly laughed it off and responded, "Well, one of the things people think about you when they look at you is how unbelievable you look".
"But I grew up so defined by my looks", she explained.
Despite Trump's comments, she continued gaining star power and recognition based on her refusal to back down from asking hard and, at times, controversial questions to powerful and influential figures. Kelly asked Turner, "Is it true that you became a lawyer-and you became gay-because of Will?"
