Greg Kelly’s Greatest Hits: Five of the Rape-Accused Fox News Anchor’s Best TV Moments

greg kelly e1327689059354 Greg Kellys Greatest Hits: Five of the Rape Accused Fox News Anchors Best TV MomentsIf you weren’t familiar with the inarguable charms of Greg Kelly—the former White House correspondent, NY1 anchor, son of police commissioner Ray Kelly, and Good Day New York host—you should be. He’s recently been in the news for having run into the law. Before he was a New York Post headline, he was a regular punchline on The Soup, E! Television’s weekly rundown of the most ridiculous things on TV.

Often on The Soup, the clips come from inside the house: Kim Kardashian, Ryan Seacrest, and the rest of the network’s wacky “characters” offer plenty of great material for host and Community star Joel McHale to riff on. But Greg Kelly soon became a regular feature on the show, for what some might consider his brutal, unflinching honesty in the face of some of the news he was forced to talk about (others might consider it an inability to self-censor).

As such, without further ado and in no particular order—and apropos of only the most salient of news pegs—here are some of the greater moments from Mr. Kelly’s repetoir:

5. Greg Kelly On The Difference Between Blacks and Whites. Sometimes, the anchors of Good Day NY have time to fill. They fill it with anecdotes illuminating their personal lives. Here’s one about the way Greg Kelly sees color:

4. Greg Kelly On The Need For Perspective. Every duo needs its dynamic. In Mr. Kelly and Good Day NY co-host Rosanna Scotto’s, theirs revolves around her relentless optimism, and his carefully metered need to put things into a less…idealistic…context:

 

 

3. Greg Kelly Finds Your Durability Appealing. The old “that’s what she said” trope is simply too tired for such highly-agile comic minds as Mr. Kelly’s, who perfers a higher level of sophistication to his sexual innuendo asides.

 

 

2. Greg Kelly Is Okay With Your “Alternative Lifestyle” So Long As You Keep It At Least Three Feet Away. One morning, Greg and Rosanna had the cast of an off-Broadway show come visit them. The show? My Big Gay Italian Wedding. Somebody actually did a forensics-style breakdown of the entire clip. You’ll get the picture fairly quickly:

 

 

1. Greg Kelly Wants You To Burn To Death From Hanukkah Fever. If any one clip of Greg Kelly—especially from The Soup—perfectly encapsulates the character we’ve all come to know and love, it’s this one. Good Day NY has brought a band to the set, one ready to take the world (of Jews who are into this sort of thing) by storm, with their “hit” single, “Hanukkah Fever.” As bubbly co-host Rosanna Scotto is summoned to jam on stage with the band, they try to rope Mr. Kelly into the proceedings. His reaction, one which requires few words on his part, is that of a man barely able to control his seething hatred of the moment he’s living in:

    wow he always would get racial with the weather man , then that cooled down , I was taken back by his statement about the capsized concordia Greg says and to think this looks bad but they will put this in dry dock and weld a piece of steel on the hull and that bad boy will be sailing the high sees in 3 or 4 months , nobody is going to throw away a 500 million dollar ship , over that. Rosana was like wtf? its sunk under water… are you sure ?

    I really love Greg Kelly and do not believe one word of this  accusation.

      he likes sex

  5. Anders says:

    I find this ridiculous. I find that he generally has a good nature while Rosanna Scotto tends to be negative and obnoxious. He does say some really stupid things but I don’t think he ever intends to offend people. It’s easy to take situations and video clips out of context, but when it comes down to it, that’s just lazy reporting. As for the rape allegation, it’s starting to look like no one is buying it.
