‘You are fascinated with sex and you don’t care about public policy’
There are two weeks to go until Election Day and tensions are flaring on Fox News.
In an interview with Newt Gingrich, Fox News’ Megyn Kelly suggested that Donald Trump might be a “sexual predator.” She based this on things he’s said (“We saw on that tape Trump himself saying he likes to grab women by the genitals and kiss them against their will”) and the many women who have came forward alleging Trump has sexually assaulted them.
Gingrich, one of Trump’s most prominent supporters, become livid.
“You are fascinated with sex and you don’t care about public policy,” Gingrich, who has been married three times, told Kelly.
“I’m not fascinated by sex,” Kelly replied, “but I am fascinated by the protection of women and what we are getting in the oval office.”
Things went downhill from there.

Gingrich tried to change the topic to allegations against Bill Clinton, daring Kelly to call the former president a “sexual predator.”
Kelly noted that she’s hosted Kathleen Willey, who claims Bill Clinton sexually assaulted her in 1993, on her show.
But, Kelly added, Bill Clinton is “not on the ticket.”
With that the segment was over.
“You can take your anger issues and spend some time working on them,” Kelly told Gingrich before going to a commercial break.
