Megyn Kelly has been criticized over the last year for being harsh on Donald Trump and defending Hillary Clinton. Kelly has repeatedly covered the 2005 tape in which Trump can be heard making lewd comments about women… But has largely glossed over the damning accusations against Clinton and the Wikileaks dumps.
Her fans have become fed up with her clear bias, and finally someone called her out on it.
On Tuesday evening’s show, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich OBLITERATED Kelly for her obvious bias.
Host Megyn Kelly announced the segment as a discussion about polls indicating the Democrats may pick up some congressional seats. It ended with Kelly suggesting to an overheated Gingrich that he “take [his] anger issues and spend some time working on them.” Whew.
Gingrich told Kelly that all the polls she was citing were “alternate universe” stuff, and that America was going to elect Donald Trump. Kelly said it was too bad Trump had brought a lot of trouble upon himself with his recent remarks about the women who’ve come forward with accusations of sexual assault. She connected some percentage of his falling poll numbers to this and the Access Hollywood tape. Kelly started to articulate her argument: “If Donald Trump is a sexual predator—“ “He’s not a sexual predator!” Gingrich interrupted. “You could not defend that statement!”
Gingrich said, “I’m sick and tired of people like you! Using language that’s inflammatory that’s not true.”
Kelly shot back, “Excuse me, Mr. Speaker, you don’t know that that’s not true or not/ I’m not taking a position on that.”
“When you used those words, you took a position. I think that is exactly the bias people are upset by,” said Gingrich. “You are fascinated with sex and you don’t care about public policy! That’s what I get outta you watching you tonight.”
Watch the fight play out… and pay special attention to what happened at the end.
