Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich got ANGRY with Fox News host Megyn Kelly on Tuesday night, accusing her of being “fascinated with sex” live on the air.
Dan Scavino Jr., the director of social media for the campaign responded, ‘@NewtGingrich just destroyed @MegynKelly. Shows she is totally biased against Mr. Trump & not very smart. Mr. Trump has long known!!’ wrote Scavino on Twitter immediately after Gingrich’s appearance on The Kelly File.
He followed that up with another tweet, saying: ‘@MegynKelly made a total fool out of herself tonight- attacking @realDonaldTrump. Watch what happens to her after this election is over.’
Kelly began by pointing out that most national polls have Donald Trump trailing Hillary Clinton just two weeks from Election Day, slightly riling up her guest. But the host really got under Gingrich’s skin when she brought up the sexual assault allegations against Trump and secretly recorded 2005 tape of his “grab them by the p***y” remarks as possible reasons for his lagging poll numbers.
“I’m sick and tired of people like you using language that’s inflammatory that’s not true!” Gingrich said. “When you use the words, you took a position. And I think it’s very unfair of you to do that!”
“Excuse me, Mr. Speaker. You have no idea if it’s true,” Kelly responded.
“Neither do you!” Gingrich shot back.
But Kelly doubled down on her point, saying if the allegations against him are true, it’s a “big story.”
That set Gingrich off, sparking this diatribe:
“You wanna go back through the tapes of your show recently? You are fascinated with sex and you don’t care about public policy! That’s what I get out of watching you tonight!”
Laughing off the claim, Kelly said she is not fascinated by sex but is interested in protecting women and understanding “what we are getting in the Oval Office.”
How did the segment actually end? With Gingrich “daring” Kelly to say the words “Bill Clinton sexual predator.” Defending her reporting, Kelly said she has covered sexual assault claims against former President Clinton as well.
