Gingrich to Kelly: “You are fascinated with sex and you don’t care about public policy.”

Gingrich to Kelly: “You are fascinated with sex and you don’t care about public policy.”

Newt Gingrich and Megyn Kelly have prime time slugfest over Trump.

https://youtu.be/Y-Uhd8Jg8P4

Newt Gingrich appeared on the Kelly File Tuesday night and fireworks flew. Things started out fine with Gingrich offering his assessment of the presidential race but went downhill quickly when Kelly started bringing up Trump’s negatives. Like many Americans, Newt has clearly tired of Trump bashing in media.

Mediaite has more details:

Newt Gingrich Lost It and Blew Up at Megyn Kelly: ‘You Are Fascinated with Sex!’

Gingrich started to get a little snippy and said we all should just go home if she thinks the election’s over. He insisted that the odds “are pretty good” that Clinton doesn’t win.

Kelly proceeded to explain to him why Trump is behind, citing that 2005 tape and Trump lashing out at pretty much every single woman who’s made allegations about him. Gingrich snapped, “I get it, I know where you’re coming from.”

But it was when Kelly said people have a right to hear reporting on the people accusing Trump of being a “sexual predator” that caused Gingrich to explode:

“I’m sick and tired of people like you using language that’s inflammatory that’s not true!… When you use the words, you took a position. And I think it’s very unfair of you to do that, Megyn!”

Here’s the video:

Twitchy caught some great reactions to the exchange:

This election has caused quite a few friendship rifts and we’ve still got two weeks left to go.

Newtie made himself look like a boob. The toxic effect of the Great God Cheeto.

You GO, Newt!

I disagree. Megan reveals herself to be a biased ego driven one issue -feminist. She is in a job that has no credentialing, no standards and no ethics. There is a vast difference between reporting what others have claimed and labeling that person as a predator. Newt was right to call her on it. The hardest thing to discern is when the grey areas disappear and only black or white is left. When do we start shooting? I don’t know I hope I will recognize it. But I do know it is time to speak up. I do not like trump. But I know Clinton is a criminal. And this tactic of labels is a dem one.

    Kinda off topic are you. Who cares if she is still on Fox news after this. BTW, if you have not notice, TV news viewership is trending pretty bad. Trump has been their best friend. After the election, I bet you see their ad revenue fall. If Trump wins, it will even be better yet.

    True Colors are showing and it is fun to see people claim to have principles (hey Rags) actually provide that they don’t. Fox has proven what I always believed they were, Fake.

    My WJS is moving closer to the cancelled box too. Media has become enjoined with the UniParty. Journalism is dead.

    casualobserver in reply to Ragspierre. | October 26, 2016 at 9:11 am

    Using tweets to make a point?? I guess you give a lot of credence to mobs and anonymous internet outrage artists. Wow.

      Ragspierre in reply to casualobserver. | October 26, 2016 at 9:24 am

      Erm…

      You’ll want to attack Alister over that, hunny.

      Plus Glenn Reynolds, Der Donald, etc., and more etc.

      Speaking of “not a journalist”, Alister is a pure pom-pom boi for T-rump. Note his VERY selective citation of tweets.

I love it. Trump was right about her from the beginning. Way to go Newt. He handled it correctly. The sunlight is disinfecting.

Glad to know Rags is part of the UniParty. You should just join the Dem. Party because I and my friends will do everything we can to create a new party that does not have supporters like you.

My 80 year old mother who have never voted for a democrat is 100% behind Trump. She thinks is it a joke that they would try to paint Trump as a sexual predator. Can you say, Kennedy’s, Hart, Edwards, and Clinton?! Can you say dead girls in the bottom of the lake. Thanks for the Post Aleister, it made my day. I see she is carrying the water for Murdoch. Trump appears to be a freshman in high school in comparison to the professionals of the Democrat party.

    “My 80 year old mother who have never voted for a democrat is 100% behind Trump.”

    Well, she’s consistent, anyhow…

      MarkSmith in reply to Ragspierre. | October 26, 2016 at 8:44 am

      “Fox News Is Literally Dying Of Old Age As Younger Viewers Refuse To Watch Fox”

      Yep, and her vote is based on principle and issues.

      Something that some people here have shown they do not have.

      Clinton is a direct attack at destroying the middle class and small business. If she wins, she will move the ball closer to a two class system with government entitlements dish out to us working class folks. It screams communism and a direct power grab at our free will.

      Live Free or Die!

      Henry Hawkins in reply to Ragspierre. | October 26, 2016 at 12:22 pm

      LOL. Good’n.

Megyn is wrong. Only women who were already rabidly anti-Trump care about women coming forward 10 years later to say he made an unwanted pass at them. The rest of us would like to see more balanced coverage of both candidates. We’ve had a lot of serial sexual predators in the White House. The country survived. Except for Marilyn Monroe, the women survived, too. I want to know what our country will be like during and after a Trump or Clinton presidency. Since no one is discussing that on TV news and opinion shows I stopped watching.

Tonight, the role of James “Snake-Head” Carville will be played by Newt Gingrich.

“It’s sex, sex, sex…I tell ya’ that Ken Starr is obsessed with sex…!!!”

    MarkSmith in reply to Ragspierre. | October 26, 2016 at 9:02 am

    I see you are well versed in Clinton history. Try watching War Room. JB Rags has proven he has no principle since he is clueless to the real issues of the world.

    Please tell us what are your principle are and why Hillary is the best choice? Or are you still whining because the Canadian did not get the nod.

    MSM sucks and they need to be called to the carpet. Newt is so right here. Wish they would have started attacking earlier. What a disservice the fake polls are doing. I keep hearing a clear bias poll being used over and over again weeks after it has been debunked. With Facebook and Google in the bag for Hillary, it is amazing that Trump has a chance since he is against all odds. Life Free or Die.

Megyn Kelly is no journalist. I am glad Newt called her out. BTW, I made the mistake of doing an image search on Jessica Drake, one of the latest accusers. Stupid, I just wanted to see some earlier pics, from before the sit down with Gloria Allred. After that, I had to wonder who decided to fit her out with those geek glasses when she made the big accusation.

    RodFC in reply to amwick. | October 26, 2016 at 12:14 pm

    Probably7 Jenny McCarthy and Rick Perry.
    Howard Stern had a great rant about how one she became a host on the View she would no longer appear on his show and became “Jenny with the glasses”.

Megyn Kelly is obviously a femi-nazi. She’s certainly not a journalist. GO NEWT!

casualobserver | October 26, 2016 at 9:08 am

Kelly was especially aggressive with Newt for that entire interview. Did she let him get a full sentence out without interrupting? The term “predator” was the sign of her motives. As a “journalist”, there are plenty of other ways to label the sum of his last minute accusers.

Someone who watches the news channels more religiously than I do says Kelly has been more unhappy with the Trump people and their answers lately regarding his flaws. Someone recently was a no show on the day they were to appear, and that may be the triggering point with her. Certainly she didn’t like anything Newt was saying and he showed it by talking over him incessantly.

    MarkSmith in reply to casualobserver. | October 26, 2016 at 11:03 am

    Too get the real feel for her disposition you have to see the clip before Newts.

    https://youtu.be/Z8OzPqf2e3g

    When Pence says Trump is going to win at 20 sec in, you can see (ever so little) her smug smile change.

    Check it out and let me know if you see it too.

      UK Transplant in reply to MarkSmith. | October 26, 2016 at 3:28 pm

      I didn’t see her smile change but I did see her face freeze. Mike Pence was excellent in this interview. Megyn admitted the media was biased but then referred to the media as “they”. It’s not only Megyn, I’ve heard numerous media personalities talk about the media as if they aren’t included while insisting Donald Trump take responsibility for their accusations. It’s like Obama complaining about the insiders in Wash DC.

Everyone know Megyn Kelly is going to vote for Crooked Hillary.

Don’t need to say anymore!

smalltownoklahoman | October 26, 2016 at 9:35 am

Alright, quick question because I haven’t followed this issue very closely: Aside from that 2005 video has there been any real hard evidence brought up to back these numerous allegations of sexual misconduct leveled at Trump? I’ve been kinda tuning out whenever the issue comes up these past couple of weeks because it’s being used as a sleaze tactic to try and drive away people from Trump. I have heard that a few of these accusers are actually working for the Dems or Clinton directly so that automatically makes me distrust them by default. Like I said, I just want to know if anything has turned up that would lend credence to their claims aside from that tape.

    You mean something like a photo of a person with a bruised lip? Oh, I forgot, that was WJC…. wrong predator.

    The answer to your question is – No, there is literally no evidence that any of the trump accusers are anything other than DNC/HRC plants. Plenty of suspicious relationships like one of them working for the Clinton foundation.

The Narrative during the Clinton Administration:
Press: These are all unsubstantiated allegations! It’s sex with all of you, isn’t it? All you care about is sex!
Republicans: No, it’s the perjury and lying. We have a President who has commited a felon–
Press: Republicans admit it’s all about sex!

The Narrative during the upcoming Clinton administration:
Press: It’s sex about you Republicans, always sex! Why do you have to demean all of these responsible women who we have not checked to see if their stories hold together?
Republicans: Clinton can’t tell the truth, lies about things which are blatantly provable wrong, and broke the law repeatedly, but the press will not cover–
Press: Republicans admit it’s all about sex!

If the Trump era ushers in a fashion for pointing out when the Emperor really has no clothes, that would be no bad thing.

    UK Transplant in reply to tom swift. | October 26, 2016 at 3:39 pm

    It already has. Look at all the faux conservatives who have already been exposed by Donald Trump. The Never Trumpers who are trying to help Hillary win don’t seem to care about Hillary appointing Supreme Court justices because Trump said something bad.

I watched Megyn Kelly and Newt Gingrich last night, and this was in my paper, this morning. I thought it was screamingly appropriate.

http://babyblues.com/comics/october-26-2016/

Megyn Kelly has her own history of vulgar audio, not to mention public release of boob shots. So, I am not impressed with her pounding on Donald Trump.

She’s a very good interviewer, and I was vastly annoyed with DJT’s after-debate tweets insulting her.

However, her pretense, that Hillary Clinton’s corrupt use of the Clinton Foundation and the State Department is somehow not at issue in this campaign, makes her look stupid, which she demonstrably is not.

My question is, why did Megyn Kelly suddenly get an attack of the stupids?

Personal lives are not relevant to the job he does as POTUS. Selling point for Dems in the 90’s. Sexual predator for Hillary, Dems and Kelly in 2016. Go Donald!!

I came away from that interview thinking three things.
Megyn absolutely refused to say “Bill Clinton Sexual Predator”.
I was a bit dissapointed he did not try to get her to say “Hillary Clinton Enabler of Sexual Predators”
I hope future conservatives push her to say those two things.

After the Rosie O’Donnel question Iknew Megyn was going to be the next David Brock.

Newt got it right. But, he failed to expound on WHY the media seems to be obsessed with the Trump tape.

What has happened here is that the media has discovered that Trump’s policy positions strike a sympathetic cord with the majority of the voters. To continue to attack his policy positions only serves to energize his base and, possibly, sway undecided voters to vote for him. So, they have bought into this contrived narrative that Trump is a sexual predator; something that they steadfastly refuse to do with regard to Bill Clinton, even though overwhelming evidence exists to support the case against Bill.

So, the media will continue to ignore the issues and concentrate on spinning a negative narrative based upon a single incident, in a National Enquireresque manner. Modern journalism. No different than the old yellow journalism of the past.

Who knows what Trump has done, but there is a dynamic that makes mudslinging effective – if you lob false accusations at your opponent, your opponent cannot prove a negative, that he is not guilty of the accusations (this is not a criminal thing, and in the court of politics there can be no exculpatory alibis for multiple accusations over long periods of time ). The accused, despite his innocence, is weakened by being forcing to defend that which is impossible to defend, again, because how do you prove you didn’t do it?

This is not at all to defend Trump, but if he is innocent of all these accusations, how would he prove it?

In all cases my choice is to ignore political accusations that come without demonstrable proof, no matter who the accuser or the accused.

    Ragspierre in reply to Henry Hawkins. | October 26, 2016 at 2:03 pm

    Actually, Henry, we prove up negatives in court every day.

    One BIG way is to show that conduct like that T-rump is accused of…and brags about on video…it simply out of character. Here, of course, T-rump would find that impossible, since such conduct as he’s accused of is BOTH very MUCH in character, and admitted.

    Another way you do it is showing a disjunction in a time-line, which, in the case of several of T-rump’s accusers, cannot be done. He was there; they were there.

    Pence/T-rump promised definitive proof that the accusations were false. It never materialized.

    For T-rump sucking cultists, just as with Dollar Bill Clinton, they will simply believe their own delusions, while hating on the people who prick their bubble.

Megan, along with the rest of the press, use anything they can to keep Hillary’s corruption off TV screens and news pages.

Has everybody noticed how the Jihadis and BLM have kept themselves out of the news lately?

    Ragspierre in reply to MSO. | October 26, 2016 at 2:36 pm

    Bullshit! This is the lady that just last week sliced and diced Donna Brazil.

    Some of you people have the memory of a goose.

      ‘you people?’ — Come on Rags, which people are those? In this election, the winner will be one of two people; Clinton or Trump. As much as you, I, and everybody else would like it to be different, it is not.

      My choice is to defeat Clinton and Trump is simply the price we’ll have to pay to do that.

      What’s your choice, Rags? You do know that for this election, the Grand Poobah’s facebook account has been closed, so any appeal to him will be lost in the cloud, never to heard, much less acted upon.

      As far as news bimbos are concerned, there are very few, regardless of gender, which could hold their own in a battle of wits with a mashed potato. Megan is not among those few.

      MarkSmith in reply to Ragspierre. | October 26, 2016 at 9:41 pm

      ” This is the lady that just last week sliced and diced Donna Brazil.”

      Did not really look like a slice and dice to me. I actually like Donna (not her politics) because she is good that what she does. I respect that.

      The fact that what she did is now lost in our memories, like you said, indicated how well she and the media work together.

      You still can’t see how the media is playing you. “She is framing it” my A$$.

This woman is old news. She was never an intellectual heavy, just gutsy. Now she’s proven herself to just be a hack with a lot of makeup.

Kelly absolutely DID accuse Trump of being a sexual predator. Not only that but she was trying to dupe Gingrich into accepting it as a premise, and it seems from the exchange when he didn’t go for it that this was a pre-planned ploy. She was ready to defend her “if” as if it had not been an assertion when it absolutely was.

And that wasn’t her only dirty trick. She also flat out lied about what Trump said on the video, claiming: “Trump said he likes to grab women’s crotch and kiss them AGAINST THEIR WILL.” Liar. He bragged/marveled that they LET him. Did any boy or man ever try to get to first or third base with Megan Kelly? And when she LET them, was that AGAINST HER WILL?

She also demonstrates a complete lack of self-awareness, crying that FOX is non-partisan. Here she is, a rabid Hillary-hack, asserting in-effect the unquestionability of her own lack of bias when her blatant flaming unrelenting bias is exactly what Gingrinch is calling out.

She was shameless when she first went full Candy Crowley on Trump in the Republican debate, attacking a Republican candidate with the most demagogically dishonest of all Democrat memes, the “war on women” garbage. (Failing to buy Sandra Fluke’s birth control for her is a “war on women.”) She doubled down when called on then as well: “I’m in the arena too.”

No, you rotten hack, “moderators” are not supposed to debate with the candidates, they are supposed to moderate the candidates’ debate with each other.

How does she differ from Rachel Maddow at this point? Maybe she’s more devious. Maddow is a stupid hack. Kelly is calculating in her dishonesty and manipulation.

So. Guiliani has admitted T-rump “has to turn this thing around”.

But T-rump suckers…never mind.

    MarkSmith in reply to Ragspierre. | October 26, 2016 at 9:44 pm

    Not sure what point you want to make with the Town Hall link. Again, you are avoiding the issue. Are you being paid by the DNC? Newt knocked this one out of the park. It is a win win because he is attacking the media, who most of us believe should be called to the carpet.

Watched the whole clip again…

Megan OWNED the Newtster, who tried to run all over the place.

Megyn Kelly is HOT!

    Henry Hawkins in reply to 5under3. | October 26, 2016 at 8:38 pm

    She’s hot – but not Janet Reno hot, and certainly not Hillary hot.

    MarkSmith in reply to 5under3. | October 26, 2016 at 9:49 pm

    Its funny. It is obvious with the GQ thing and other quotes, she has used her sex appeal to sell her brand. What a hypocrite she is. I don’t think she is hot and think he is now looking like a male. Take a good hard look at her face in the Pence video. She looses her smug look and finds herself on the defensive trying to support her bias position. IT is a major failure, but then fake news has been for several years now. Her voice sounds like she is trying too hard to sound like a man too.

Kelly’s sin is Vanity – she wants to be a Celebrity Journalist like Bill O’Reilly and sell a lot of books – at our expense. That’s why she keeps making herself the story.

BTW, while Hillary the Enabler is a good line of attack, don’t forget about how Hillary Slut Shamed her husband’s rape victims. She set up a War Room to discredit and victimize them further for having the courage to come forward. She even publicly called them “skanks, sluts, whores, and trailer park trash”.

    Ragspierre in reply to Fen. | October 27, 2016 at 6:06 am

    Yep. A lot like the Dollar Bill defender and woman trasher Donald J. Trump.

    No, dear.

    But I suppose it’s all smooth and groovy for T-rump to be treating any Americans differently than any other Americans to pander for support.

    It’s never been OK by my lights. But you are a T-rump sucking Collectivist.
