Fox News host Megyn Kelly got into a heated exchange with liberal guest Richard Fowler over a Black Lives Matter activist getting in the face of a Chicago police officer Tuesday night during a protest over the death of Laquan McDonald.
The 17-year-old black youth was shot in October 2014 by a white police officer, Jason Van Dyke, who was charged Tuesday with first-degree murder in the case. Authorities released a graphic dash-cam video of the incident the same day, which prompted the protest.
The drama with Fowler began after Kelly interrupted another guest, former NYPD Commissioner Bernard Kerik, to draw viewers attention to “an extraordinary moment” unfolding on camera, that being the black protester engaged in an intense stare down with a white cop.
Kerik interjected to say “you’re going to have guys like this who want to instigate,” which led to Fowler jumping in to defend the protester’s action.
“What is he instigating, Bernie? I’m sorry. I’ve got to interrupt,” Fowler said.
His response prompted a highly irritated Kelly to chime in.

“Richard, look at him,” she said. “This is a cop out there accused of doing nothing wrong, trying to keep the peace.”
Fowler responded by saying the man was “having a silent protest with the police officer,” adding that this is “his First Amendment right.”
“He gets in his face and stairs him down,” Kelly said. “This cop hasn’t done anything wrong.”

“But that is his First Amendment right, Megyn and you, out of all people … this is his first amendment right,” Fowler replied. “I don’t understand.”
But Kelly wasn’t having any part of it..
“You think that’s fine?” she fired back. “You have no problem with this?”
Fowler again fell back on the action being a First Amendment right.
“It’s not a question of what his constitutional rights are, it’s a question of what’s appropriate,” Kelly said.
Fowler continued to excuse the protester’s inappropriate behavior.
“I see nothing wrong with this,” he said, before noting that it took 13 months to charge Van Dyke.
