Megyn Kelly is openly mocking "Today" host Savannah Guthrie for leaving the NBC morning show during a broadcast after contracting COVID-19 for the third time.
While on her SiriusXM podcast, Megyn, a former NBC employee, suggested that political ideology was at play.
"All of it is such a perfect indication of how the left, and especially the left in New York, continues to live," she said. "I mean, at this point, seriously? Is anyone still even testing for COVIDs?"
Megyn further assumed that Savannah had had several COVID vaccine boosters.
"There's zero chance NBC is not requiring all boosters. This is reportedly Savannah's third bout of COVID, and I guarantee you she's had all the vaccines and the boosters because you won't be able to go into 30 Rock without them," Megyn said, referring to NBC headquarters in New York City.
The former Fox News host added, "I don't test for COVID anymore. Who's testing for COVID still? It's amazing to me. These guys are leftists and it's amazing to me to see how the leftists still live under the grip of COVID."
Savannah appeared on the Tuesday morning's "Today" show for the first 30 minutes, but she suddenly went MIA. Co-host Sheinelle Jones eventually clued viewers into the behind-the-scenes drama.
"It has been an interesting morning for us," she said. "Savannah left early, she wasn't feeling great, so she took a COVID test. It came back positive. As soon as we found out, she rushed home to rest up. So Savannah, we love you, wishing you a speedy recovery."
While continuing to jab NBC, Megyn shaded beloved weatherman Al Roker over Savannah's illness.
"I got dollars to donuts that Roker's there with an N95 [mask] tomorrow all day on set," she said.
Megyn's acrimonious history with NBC is well known. She was hired by the news organization in 2017 and given a $69 million contract to become the face of "Megyn Kelly Today," which aired in the third hour of "Today." The show was canceled a year later amid her "Blackface" controversy. She then left the network in January 2019. Reports said her contact was paid out in full.
