Since they sat down for their sunny truce on prime-time network television more than five months ago at the conclusion of their public feud, Megyn Kelly has been unable to get Donald Trump to come on her show. Tuesday night, she had to settle for the next best thing:Newt Gingrich, a Trump surrogate.
Things went south pretty fast, and the two got in an argument relatively quickly. There was one line in particular that stuck out. Video of the interview is below, obtained courtesy of Conservative Outfitters:
Megyn begin by talking about Trump’s poll numbers, which Gingrich claimed were part of the mainstream media’s “alternate universe.”
Things really went off the rails when Kelly brought up the leaked sexually explicit comments Trump made back in 2005, and the sexual assault allegations that followed. “If Trump is a sexual predator, then it’s a big story,” she said, setting Gingrich off on a tear of “defensiveness” that she suggested “speaks volumes.”
“You are fascinated with sex and you don’t care about public policy. That’s what I get out of watching you tonight” offered Gingrich in response.
For the record, @megynkelly was wrong, i don’t have anger management issues. I do have media bias issues!

What do you think? Are the polls accurate? We’ve seen from a number of the Podesta emails leaked by Wikileaks that there has been conspiracy to rig polls to make a Hillary victory appear inevitable. The methods of rigging the polls are mainly in the form of sampling bias – by including a disproportionate amount of Democrats or minorities (who tend to lean left) in the sample.
When it comes to the sexually misconduct allegations against Trump, you have to wonder why these women didn’t come forward sooner. Decades sooner. Trump says his accusers are going to be sued after the election, and that’s not something a guilty man does.
