Political observers are still abuzz about Megyn Kelly's stunning interview with Chicago's Bill Ayers.
Kelly asks Ayers about his involvement in the Underground Weathermen bombings in the 70s and his thoughts about America. Ayers, who held Barack Obama's first political fundraiser in his and his wife Bernadine Dohrn's living room, appeared at times to be shocked by Kelly's aggressive and confrontational questions and follow-ups.
After the one-on-one interview, Kelly hosted a discussion between Ayers and Dinesh D'Souza about American Exceptionalism. Ayers said he was not a liberal, and that he was not proud to be an American. Ayers is a tenured professor at the University of Chicago.
KELLY: Are you proud to be an American?
AYERS: I’m not proud to be an American and I don’t buy the American exceptionalism at all. And the reason I’m not proud to be an American is because of the damage that we do around the world is so serious and so ongoing. So if you look anywhere in the world, look at Latin America. All through Latin America, ordinary people on the street admire Cuba for one reason: they stood up to America. They stood up to imperial advances.
