Newt Gingrich appeared on Megyn Kelly’s show on Fox News tonight where he completely lost it.
Gingrich, who usually appears on Fox primetime with Sean Hannity, seemed to be very thrown off guard by being challenged on the fact that Donald Trump is so behind in the polls.
Kelly pressed Gingrich on the fact that all the polls show Trump is behind. Gingrich pointed to certain states where Trump’s doing well and said the pollsters have an agenda. Kelly pointed out Fox’s polling has Trump behind too and said, “You tell me if that’s all made up.”
Kelly tried to explain to Gingrich why Trump is behind, explaining that the 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.”
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, and he said, “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!”
Kelly calmly said, “Your defensiveness on this may speak volumes, sir.”
The two kept fighting, but then Gingrich got so angry that he actually yelled out, “You wanna go back through the tapes of your show recently? You are fascinated with sex and you don’t care about public policy! That’s what I get out of watching you tonight!”
