Former Fox News host Megyn Kelly made her debut on NBC News on Sunday night in a sit-down with Russian President Vladimir Putin. In the highly anticipated first episode of Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly, Kelly peppered Putin with questions about the Russian government's contacts with President Trump's team and Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
About all Kelly got out of Putin was a string of denials and some brutal quips, like when he inquired, "Do you even understand what you're asking or not?" Kelly's critics weren't much impressed, either, as evidenced by the array of headlines below. Becca Stanek
