Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich lashed out at Megyn Kelly on Fox News Tuesday night for questioning whether Donald Trump is a “sexual predator,” accusing the prime-time anchor of contributing to the media “bias” against Trump.
“I’m sick and tired of people like you that’s using language that’s inflammatory and not true,” Gingrich said. “You are fascinated with sex and you don’t care about public policy.”
A visibly stunned Kelly, who sparred with Trump earlier this year, rejected the notion that she favored Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. She noted that the news media cannot ignore the allegations of the 10 women who have come forward with stories of groping and sexually inappropriate behavior by Trump.
“I’m not fascinated by sex, Mr. Speaker. But I am fascinated by the protection of women and understand what I’m getting in the Oval Office,” she said. “The poll numbers show us the women in America are very concerned by these allegations.”
Gingrich continued to taunt Kelly about her show’s coverage of the presidential race, daring the host to say the words “Bill Clinton sexual predator,” alluding to the former president’s sex scandal from the 1990s.
“I just want to hear you say it,” Gingrich prodded.
“You can take your anger issues and spend some time working on them, Mr. Speaker,” Kelly said as the segment ended.
