In an extraordinary two minute clip from the Megyn Kelly File on Fox News last night, Newt Gingrich said what so many have wanted to say to the biased, drama filled mainstream media. In a compelling and absolutely riveting interview, Gingrich called Kelly out for being “fascinated with sex”, being in the tank for Hillary, and for ignoring Hillary’s many scandals.
The interchange occurred in the middle of a conversation about the importance of Donald’s decade old comments caught on tape in comparison with Hillary’s crimes against the country as revealed by Wikileaks over the last few weeks. Things got particularly heated as Kelly defended her show.
Newt Gingrich: Let me point out something to you: The three major networks [NBC, ABC, CBS] spent 23 minutes attacking Donald Trump that night, and 57 seconds on Hillary Clinton’s secret speches. You don’t think that is a scale of bias worthy of Pravda?
Megyn Kelly: If Trump is a sexual predator, that is–
Newt Gingrich: He’s not a sexual predator. You can’t say that. You could not defend that statement.
Megyn Kelly: I have not taken a position on it.
Newt Gingrich: I’m sick and tired of people like you using inflammatory language that is not true.
Megyn Kelly: Excuse me, Mr. Speaker, you have no idea whether it is true or not. What we know–
Newt Gingrich: Neither do you.
Megyn Kelly: I’m not taking a position on it.
Newt Gingrich: Yes you are. When you used the words, you took a position. It is very unfair of you to do that, Megyn.
Megyn Kelly: Incorrect.
Newt Gingrich: That is exactly the bias people are sick of.
Megyn Kelly: I think that your defensiveness on this speaks volumes, sir… What I said if if Trump is a sexual predator, than it is a big story. And what we saw on that tape was Trump himself saying he liked to grab women by the genitals, and kiss them against their will. Then we saw ten women come forward after he denied it at a debate… He denies it all, which is his right. We don’t know what the truth is. My point to you is, as a media story, we don’t get to say the ten women are liars. We have to cover that story.
Newt Gingrich: So it took 23 minutes for the networks to cover that story, and Hillary Clinton had a secret speech in Brazil to a bank that pays her $225,000 saying that her dream is an open border where 600 million people could come to America, that is not worth covering.
Do you want me to go back to the tapes of your show recently. You are fasctinated with sex and you don’t care about public policy.
Megyn Kelly: Me, really?
Newt Gingrich: That’s what I get out of watching you tonight.
Megyn Kelly: I’m not fascinated by sex, by I am fascinated by the protection of women and what we’re getting in the Oval Office.
Newt Gingrich: That’s why we’re going to send Bill Clinton back to the East Wing, because you are worried about a sexual predator… Do you want to comment on whether the Clinton ticket has a relationship to a sexual predator?
Megyn Kelly: We on ‘The Kelly File’ have covered that story as well, sir.
Newt Gingrich: I want to hear you say the word. Say Bill Clinton is a sexual predator. I dare you.
