Megyn Kelly, GOP

Megyn Kelly isn't too thrilled about a presidential candidate's recent comments—and this time, we're not talking about Donald Trump.

The Fox News host publicly expressed concern about Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's responses to Lena Dunham during an interview together for the actress' newest venture, Lenny Letter.

At the start of the women's conversation, Clinton jokingly admitted she was expecting to speak with Lenny Kravitz, given the name of Dunham's project. As comedic relief, the Girls star quickly broached the topic of Kravitz's pants splitting and "stuff" falling out during a previous concert costume malfunction, to which Clinton inquired more about.

"Do you think I could get that," Clinton asked. "It's on YouTube," Dunham replied.

"OK, good. I'll look for that," Clinton said in jest. 

This short exchange is now the subject of controversy as Kelly allegedly made some unfavorable remarks about it to Cosmopolitan's editor in chief Joanna Coles during New York Advertising Week. 

"I don't necessarily think it serves [Clinton] about [Kravitz's] you know. You're still trying to convince people...[to] see me as your president," Kelly said, according to Page Six. "It's a tough balance between being relatable and showing a softer side, and still maintaining the dignity of the office that you seek."

This is not the first time Kelly has been caught in the cross-hairs of presidential hopefuls. In August, she became the center of controversy after Republican candidate Trump made a comment during an interview with CNN alluding to the fact that she was asking off-base questions because she was menstruating during her moderation of the first Republican presidential debate.

"She gets out and she starts asking me all sorts of ridiculous questions and, you know, you could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever," Trump said.

Will Clinton respond to Kelly in kind? Only time will well.
