Megyn Kelly has alienated millions of Fox News over the past year with her frequent attacks on Donald Trump in a pathetic attempt to appeal to mainstream audiences. Last night, this finally came back to bite her when Newt Gingrich fired back at her for calling Trump a “sexual predator.”
Unfortunately for Kelly, however, she quickly learned she’d made a huge mistake.
Here was their exchange, courtesy of The Gateway Pundit:
Megyn Kelly: he had a rough first debate. He took the bait on Alicia Machado. He stayed in that trap for a week. The Access Hollywood tape came out. Which was not produced by Hillary Clinton. (Does she have proof of that?) That was Trump on camera talking…
Newt Gingrich: Megyn, I just heard you go through this with Governor Pence. I get it. I know where you’re coming from. Let me point out something to you. The three major networks spent 23 minutes attacking Donald Trump that night and 57 seconds Hillary Clinton’s secret speeches. You don’t think this is a scale of bias worthy of Pravda and Izvestia?
Megyn Kelly: If Trump is a sexual predator that is…
Newt Gingrich: He’s not a sexual predator.
Megyn Kelly: OK that’s your opinion.
Newt Gingrich: You cannot defend that statement…
Megyn Kelly: I think your defensiveness on this may speak volumes, sir.
In the hours since the heated exchange, Gingrich has been flooded with support from many public figures including Trump himself.
“By the way, congratulations Newt on last night. That was amazing,” Trump said, according to Daily Mail. “We don’t play games Newt, right? We don’t play games.”
“Beauty is only skin deep. Megyn Kelly is ugly as hell on the inside,” wrote Juanita Broaddrick, who was raped by Bill Clinton in 1978.
“Woohoo, he slammed this nasty heifer!” added Paula Jones, who was sexually assaulted by Clinton as well.
Despite receiving backlash from liberals, Gingrich has stood by what he said.
“For the record, @MegynKelly was wrong, i don’t have anger management issues. I do have media bias issues!” Gingrich posted on Twitter.
