Megyn Kelly's one-on-one interview with Vladimir Putin, which aired on NBC on Sunday, didn't break any new ground, many think, and left the Twittersphere with a sour taste.
In the interview, the Russian president called charges that his country interfered in the 2016 election a "load of nonsense," according to the Washington Post. The interview was part of Kelly's new show "Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly."
"They have been misled," Putin told Kelly when she told him that American intelligence agencies had concluded that Russia interfered in the election in hopes of election President Donald Trump.
"They aren't analyzing the information in its entirety. I haven't seen, even once, any direct proof of Russian interference in the presidential election," Putin said in the interview.
Putin's responses, similar to past defenses the Russian president has given to U.S. election charges, left many watching the interview "disappointed," said Pritha Paul at the International Business Times.
"While most of the people in the United States as well as all over the world tuned into the special episode of 'Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly,' to finally get some answers out of Russian President Vladimir Putin regarding the raging controversy that Russia had sabotaged the 2016 U.S. election, it ended up being a one-way conversation that left many disappointed."
It was difficult to find positive comments on Twitter about Kelly's interview with Putin. Most on social media shared their negative feelings about it.
