Megyn Kelly, the host of the Megyn Kelly Show podcast, said on her Monday episode that “there is no question” the media exaggerated the events of the January 6 Capitol insurrection as “much worse than it actually was.” Kelly made the comment in conversation with her guest, comedian Chrissie Mayr, who described her own experience as a participant in the January 6 riots as “so like, not a big deal,” and “the most chill thing ever.”
“There is no question the media represented it as so much worse than it actually was,” the former Fox News anchor agreed.

Metropolitan Police who protected the Capitol that day. 140 officers were injured, one died from his wounds, and two officers who served that day have since taken their own lives.
