Newt Gingrich to Megyn Kelly: ‘You Are Fascinated With Sex’

By Mark Joyella 

In a testy conversation about presidential polls and media bias, Newt Gingrich accused Fox News Channel host Megyn Kelly of being “fascinated with sex.”

Gingrich angrily accused the media—including Fox News—of bias in their coverage of sexual misconduct charges made against Donald Trump. Accusing Kelly directly of bias, Gingrich said “you are fascinated with sex, and you don’t care about public policy. That’s what I get out of watching you tonight.”

“You know what, Mr. Speaker, I’m not fascinated by sex,” Kelly responded with a smile. “But I am fascinated by the protection of women, and understanding what we’re getting in the Oval Office … what I said is if Trump is a sexual predator, then it’s a big story.”

Gingrich later “dared” Kelly “to say the words ‘Bill Clinton, sexual predator,'” to which Kelly said “we on The Kelly File have covered the Clinton matter as well … but he’s not on the ticket.”
