Daily Wire host Andrew Klavan sat down with political commentator Megyn Kelly on her eponymous podcast Wednesday to discuss a range of topics, including the recent outrage from the Left over women’s basketball star Caitlin Clark’s rookie salary.

Clark, who became the all-time leading scorer in NCAA basketball during her senior season at Iowa, was selected No. 1 overall in the WNBA draft earlier this week, and many on social media — all the way up to the White House — took issue with Clark’s contract compared to what rookie NBA stars make. Kelly began the segment by quoting a social media post by President Joe Biden, who wrote in part, “Even if you’re the best, women are not paid their fair share.”

“First of all, who the hell wants to hear from this White House — which is allowing and trying to make it more expansive for boys to play against girls in women’s sports — about fairness, right?” Kelly asked, before describing the controversy over Clark’s four-year $338,000 contract compared to last year’s NBA first-overall draft pick Victor Wembanyama, who signed a four-year $55 million contract.

“They’re not paying these guys in the NBA that much money because they love throwing their money away; they’re paying it because that’s how much money they’re bringing in,” Klavan said. “That’s how capitalism works. If you’re bringing in the money, you get paid for what you do.”

“And listen, Caitlin Clark is a wonderful athlete,” the Daily Wire host continued. “In fact, her college championship game was watched more than the men’s championship game, and if she can do that in the WNBA, believe me, she’ll be earning that kind of money when she re-negotiates her contract.”

Klavan said that paying Clark similar to what NBA players make wouldn’t work with the economics of the WNBA as the NBA brings in roughly 100x the revenue of the professional women’s league. The author of “The House of Love and Death” added that the debate over WNBA players’ salaries highlights deep hypocrisy from the Left.

“The Left started out by saying to us, ‘There’s no difference between men and women. We have to treat them exactly equally.’ And now they’re saying there’s so little difference that a man can be a woman, and if you say that a man can’t be a woman and play sports at another level in the women’s game, you’re being somehow bigoted,” Klavan remarked.


“The entire thing is genuinely an attack on women,” he continued. “It genuinely is a hatred of women. And I really do believe this, by the way: I believe the Left despises women at their core for the simple reason that the things that women do occur in a different moral structure than the things that men do.”
