Megyn Kelly talked about how “uncomfortable” she was when she saw the “mouth kissing” between Jill Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris’ husband at the State of the Union address on Tuesday.

During the Sirius XM “The Megyn Kelly Show” podcast on Wednesday, the host spoke to guests Charles C. Cooke and Jeremy Peters about the “gross” kiss on the mouth everyone witnessed between the First Lady and second gentleman Doug Emhoff ahead of President Joe Biden’s speech. It starts at the 49:24 minute.

Kelly said there’s only two cases when that kind of kissing on the mouth should be allowed and in Biden’s wife’s case of greeting the VP’s husband before the SOTU wasn’t one of them.


“People should not be mouth kissing ever if it’s not your husband or your spouse,” the former Fox News host shared. “Here is Kamala’s husband and Joe Biden’s wife kissing on the mouth, I’m sorry, secondhand uncomfortable…”

“Not ever,” she added. “Don’t kiss me on my mouth. Don’t do it. In fact, don’t kiss me, and probably don’t hug me either. Just like the wave or a pat, I’ll take that.”

“Definitely no mouth kissing,” Kelly continued, as footage played showing the kiss heard around the world from the SOTU. “Gross. I don’t know where your mouth’s been, and I don’t want to know.”

The host then threw it to her guests to get their thoughts on the matter. National Review writer, Cooke, said “I have no idea what’s going on in that clip. It’s bizarre.”

While The New York Times reporter, Peters, kept his response short and brief, “Not in flu season…”

Kelly and her guests weren’t the only ones who found the now viral exchange between Biden and Emhoff, not normal, as The Daily Wire previously reported.

“Jill Biden and Doug Emhoff greet each other with… a kiss on the lips?” Cabot Phillips tweeted. “Is this… normal?”

“Jill Biden just kissed Kamala Harris’ husband on the lips,” Collin Rugg added. “Didn’t see that one coming.”

“Why did Jill Biden kiss Doug Emhoff on the mouth?” Arthur Schwartz tweeted.

While another person on Twitter wrote, “WHAT IN THE ACTUAL HELL? Did [FLOTUS] and [Second Gentleman] just kiss on live national television? #SOTU #sotu2023.”
