On Wednesday social media was positively buzzing over a very testy exchange that occurred Tuesday night between former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich and Fox News’ Megyn Kelly over the issue of the women who have accused GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump of sexual assault.
Trump and Kelly don’t exactly see eye-to-eye — and haven’t in a long time. On Wednesday Trump took the opportunity to issue four bold words in defense of Gingrich’s spat with Kelly, The Hill reported.
“We don’t play games,” Trump said in defense of Gingrich.
“Congratulations, Newt, on last night. That was an amazing interview,” he also said to Gingrich, who was in the audience for Turmp’s ribbon-cutting ceremony at his new hotel.
Gingrich and Kelly got into a verbal spat over how Kelly used the term “sexual predator” when talking about the infamous Trump tape but never while talking about former President Bill Clinton’s rather sordid past.
“I am sick and tired of people like you using that language. That is inflammatory. That is not true,” Gingrich stated at one point during the interview, in which he also challenged her to say the words “Bill Clinton” and “sexual predator” in the same sentence.

Other than his brief remarks at the opening of his hotel, Trump did not comment on the Gingrich-Kelly exchange. Trump took most of the day off from the campaign trail to tout his new hotel, so it is possible he will broach the subject Thursday when he continues his campaign blitz.
Trump hasn’t been hesitant to criticize media bias when he sees it, and Kelly has not been exempted. However, it is possible that with less than two weeks until Election Day, Trump may simply let this exchange fade away and focus on talking about political issues.
