Donald Trump’s poll numbers among women voters are in the toilet, so the last thing his campaign needed was for Newt Gingrich to attack Megyn Kelly in the most disrespectful way possible.
During an interview with the Fox News host, the inflammatory former House Speaker went on a tirade after Kelly called the Republican nominee a sexual predator.
Kelly and Gingrich were going back and forth arguing about Trump’s terrible poll numbers that have him getting beaten by Hillary Clinton like an old dirty rug. Gingrich claimed that Trump is winning and said that the media is living in an “alternate reality” because he thinks Hillary being “corrupt” will propel Trump to victory.
Kelly pointed out that Hillary Clinton has bounced back from all of the charges of corruption Republicans have thrown at her plus a bout with pneumonia. But even if the charges and Hillary’s illness were enough to keep the race close, Trump blew it by having a terrible debate and then the bombshell audio of him talking about groping women against their will dropped, leaving a crater that Trump can’t crawl out of.
Gingrich whined about the media spending more time talking about Trump’s admission that he’s a sexual predator than they did about so-called “secret speeches” delivered by Hillary.
And then Kelly took the gloves off and sent Gingrich over the edge.
“If Trump is a sexual predator,” Kelly began before Gingrich cut her off and began talking down to her as if she were a child.
“Trump is not a sexual predator! You can’t say that!” Gingrich lectured.
Kelly tried to point out that she wasn’t taking a position, but Gingrich refused to hear her out.
“I’m sick and tired of people like you using language that’s inflammatory that’s not true!” Gingrich yelled while wagging his finger at Kelly. “When you use the words, you took a position. And I think it’s very unfair of you to do that, Megyn! I think that is exactly the bias people are upset by.”
“Your defensiveness on this may speak volumes, sir” Kelly shot back.
Gingrich once again tried to interrupt Kelly to lecture her on her own show, but she was quick to put him in his place.
Kelly reminded Gingrich that she only said, “if” Trump is a sexual predator because of the fact that he bragged about grabbing women “by the p*ssy” and kissing them against their will only to then have ten women accuse him of sexual assault in the days afterward. That’s a “big story,” she said.
But Gingrich continued to bitch about Hillary’s paid speeches and accused Fox of not covering them even though Kelly pointed out that they have covered them. Gingrich didn’t let the matter rest and proceeded to mansplain to her about how she is too obsessed with sex on her show.
“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!”
Kelly calmly responded that she’s only “fascinated by the protection of women and understanding what we’re getting in the Oval Office.”
Gingrich then complained that Bill Clinton will be sent to the East Wing of the White House if Hillary is elected and demanded that Kelly call the former president a “sexual predator” on the air.
Except Bill Clinton has never been charged with a crime and is not running for president in this election. The allegations against Clinton were made 20 years ago, while the allegations against Trump are new.
Kelly explained that and then ended the interview by telling Gingrich to take his obvious anger issues and go work on them elsewhere, which is the kindest way Kelly could tell Gingrich to go f*ck himself.
Here;s the video via YouTube.
Gingrich repeatedly disrespected Megyn Kelly and only made himself and Donald Trump look like complete assholes and total hypocrites. Let’s not forget that Newt Gingrich cheated on his first two wives before marrying wife number three. Even as he was cheating on his wife he was trying to impeach Bill Clinton for cheating on Hillary.
This interview was disastrous for Gingrich and may have just made many female viewers decide against voting for Trump.
