‘TODAY’ Show Host Morgan Radford Spins Megyn Kelly’s Racism As ‘Learning Moment’ That We Were ‘Gifted’

“TODAY” show host Morgan Radford tried to spin fellow host Megyn Kelly’s support of wearing blackface on Halloween.

Radford tried to spin Kelly’s public racist remark as a positive thing that had suddenly given them the opportunity  to open up conversations about racial relations:

This learning moment really gifted us the opportunity to have this conversation in a public discourse. We now have the courage, we have the platform to have conversations like this even when they’re uncomfortable as we can see they are still necessary.

Co-host Savannah Guthrie reminded viewers that Kelly was her colleague at NBC News, but co-host Al Roker was a bit tougher on Kelly, who has a long history of racist remarks:

While she apologized to the staff, she owes a bigger apology to folks of color around the country because this is a history going back to the 1830s. Minstrel shows to demean and denigrate a race wasn’t right.
