Megyn Kelly Makes ‘Today’ Show Debut — But Disses Hoda Kotb!

Watch out, Savannah Guthrie! Megyn Kelly made her long-awaited Today show debut this morning — and she’s already ruffling feathers!

The new mom, 52, threw up her hands in frustration.

After Kelly spoke about her plans to moderate the World Economic Forum, Lauer, 59, proudly plugged the June 4 premiere of her own news show.

But she appears cozy with Lauer. In May, the two shared a private dinner without any of his co-hosts.
