Newt Gingrich Tells Megyn Kelly She’s ‘Fascinated With Sex’ in Awkward Exchange — Watch Her Reaction

Newt Gingrich isn’t happy with Megyn Kelly’s coverage of the sexual misconduct accusations against Donald Trump. The former Republican House speaker argued with the Fox News host when she said “if Trump is a sexual predator” during an interview on Tuesday, October 25.

“He’s not a sexual predator! You can’t say that. You could not defend that statement,” Gingrich, 73, said, pointing his finger at the camera.

Kelly, 45, said she was “not taking a position on it,” but Gingrich interjected. “I am sick and tired of people like you using language that is inflammatory, that isn’t true,” he said. “When you used the words you took a position. I think it’s very unfair of you to do that, Megyn. I think that is exactly the bias that people are upset by.”

Kelly kept her composure. “I think your defensiveness on this may speak volumes, sir,” she said.

The Kelly File host then brought up the women who have accused Trump, 70, of sexual misconduct and the sexist remarks he made in a 2005 Access Hollywood video.

“You are fascinated with sex and you don’t care about public policy,” Gingrich said. “That’s what I get out of watching you tonight.”

Kelly smiled and replied: “You know what, Mr. Speaker, I am not fascinated by sex, but I am fascinated by the protection of women and understanding what we are getting in the Oval Office.”

Gingrich didn’t let up. He accused the media of not focusing on Hillary Clinton‘s downfalls or the women who have accused former President Bill Clinton of sexual assault.

“He’s not on the ticket,” Kelly said. “You can take your anger issues and spend some time working on them.”
