ROUND 1: The segment becomes increasingly heated when Kelly, asking Gingrich about Election predictions, brings up poll numbers. ROUND 2: It gets downright NASTY when she said THIS. ROUND 3: Newt blows a gasket!
Megyn Kelly said that Trump’s poll numbers began to decline after a poor performance at the first debate in addition to falling into the Alicia Machado trap and getting caught up in it. Suddenly the Access Hollywood tape was released and women were coming forward accusing Trump of inappropriate behavior.
Gingrich countered with the bias in the Media over the coverage of the Trump tape vs. Hillary’s private, paid speeches released by WikiLeaks.
Then, Kelly said the WRONG thing…
‘If Trump is a sexual predator…’
Gingrich lost it. He just couldn’t let that one go.
“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!”

KELLY: Mr. Speaker, I am not fascinated by sex, but I am fascinated by the protection of women’ and what we are getting in the Oval Office. And I think that the American voters would like to know..
GINGRICH: And therefore we’re going to send Bill Clinton back to the East Wing because, after all, you are worried about sexual predators.
KELLY: Yeah, listen, it’s not about me, it’s about the women and men of America. And the poll numbers show us that the women of America in particular, are very concerned about these allegations, and in a large part believe they are a real issue. And don’t dismiss the women, summarily.
GINGRICH: Do you want to comment on whether the Clinton ticket has a relationship to a sexual predator?
KELLY: We, on the Kelly File, have covered that story as well, sir. I will tell you the polls…
GINGRICH: I want to hear you use the words. I want to hear you use the words, ‘Bill Clinton, sexual predator’. I dare you. Say, ‘Bill Clinton, sexual predator’.
Kelly doesn’t take him up on his dare.
Megyn Kelly may not be obsessed with sex, but she’s willing to use her sexuality to her advantage like in this GQ photoshoot:
If it’s ok to use Trump on Howard Stern to show how he is misogynistic, this must be ok, too:
Kelly suggested that Trump ‘may’ be a sexual predator based on his ‘locker room’ talk and a gaggle of (increasingly discredited) women coming forward to accusing him of unwanted sexual advances… as he runs for President.
Suggesting that Kelly ‘may’ be a tramp based on her steamy GQ photo shoot and her TMI conversation with Howard Stern would be misogynistic and just darned unfair!
But, before we get in trouble, let’s make it clear that we ‘have no idea if it’s true’.
Has Kelly focused more on sex than issues lately?
