Former House Speaker — and current Trump supporter — Newt Gingrich flew off the handle Tuesday night after Fox News host Megyn Kelly reminded him that he is backing a “sexual predator.”
During the combative 7-minute interview, Kelly kept pointing out that Trump is losing badly in the polls — with a terse Gingrich batting away the numbers and sarcastically suggesting that maybe they should all “just go home.”
After the conservative broadcaster brought up the sexual assault allegations against Trump, Gingrich blew up.
“I’m sick and tired of people like you using language that’s inflammatory that’s not true!” Gingrich blurted. “When you use the words, you took a position. And I think it’s very unfair of you to do that, Megyn!”
A nonplussed Kelly responded, “Your defensiveness on this may speak volumes.”
“You wanna go back through the tapes of your show recently?” Gingrich snapped at Kelly. “You are fascinated with sex and you don’t care about public policy! That’s what I get out of watching you tonight!”
