Since the first Republican primary debate, Republican nominee Donald Trump and Fox News’ Megyn Kelly have been battling.
The fight between the Trump campaign and Kelly escalated on Tuesday night when former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, an avid Trump supporter, went on the Kelly file and accused Kelly of obsessing over the women who have accused Trump of sexual assault, The Hill reported.
While Kelly was using the term “sexual predator” to talk about the infamous Trump tape, Gingrich challenged Kelly with a seven-word dare that exposed her hypocrisy on the issue.
“Say, ‘Bill Clinton is a sexual predator,’” he said.
Kelly never did say those words, but she did shoot back at Gingrich by saying that the Kelly File has covered former President Bill Clinton’s accusations as well, but that he “wasn’t on the ticket.”
However Kelly never implied that Clinton was a sexual predator during those segments, something to which Gingrich took offense.
“I am sick and tired of people like you using that language. That is inflammatory, that is not true,” Gingrich angrily said after Kelly used the phrase “sexual predator” when talking about the women who have come forward to accuse Trump of sexual assault, but not about Clinton.
“You are fascinated with sex and you don’t care about public policy,” Gingrich said to Kelly at one point during the show.
Kelly insisted that she was not obsessed with sex, she was simply reporting on someone who could potentially be the next president of the United States.
The fiery exchange ended on an even lower note.
“You can take your anger issues and spend some time working on them, Mr. Speaker,” Kelly said.
Not exactly professional journalism right there.

Trump has yet to remark on this exchange, but Politico noted that Trump’s social media director, Dan Scavino, went on Twitter to blast Kelly for her bias against Trump.

If Trump does become president, he and Kelly are going to have a very interesting relationship, to say the least.
