WATCH: Newt Gingrich has a complete meltdown after Fox’s Megyn Kelly calls Trump a ‘sexual predator’

Published

on

Former House Speaker — and current Trump supporter — Newt Gingrich flew off the handle Tuesday night after Fox News host Megyn Kelly reminded him that he is backing a “sexual predator.”

During the combative 7-minute interview, Kelly kept pointing out that Trump is losing badly in the polls — with a terse Gingrich batting away the numbers and sarcastically suggesting that maybe they should all “just go home.”

After the conservative broadcaster brought up the sexual assault allegations against Trump, Gingrich blew up.

“If Trump is a sexual predator,” Kelly started to say.

“He’s not a sexual predator,” Gingrich interrupted.

“Okay. That is your opinion,” Kelly said.

“You could not defend that statement. I’m sick and tired of people like you using language that’s inflammatory that’s not true!” Gingrich blurted.

“Excuse me, Mr. Speaker, you have no idea whether it’s true or not,” Kelly said.

“When you used the word you took a position and I think it’s very unfair of you to do that, Megyn. I think that is exactly the bias people are upset by,” Gingrich replied.

A nonplussed Kelly responded, “Your defensiveness on this may speak volumes.”

Kelly added: “What I said is if Trump is a sexual predator, then it’s a big story. And what we saw on that tape was Trump himself saying that he likes to grab women by the genitals and kiss them against their will. That is what we saw. And then we saw ten women come forward after he denied actually doing it at a debate to say that was untrue, he did it to me, he did it to me, we saw reporters, we saw people who worked with him. People from Apprentice and so on and so forth. He denies it all. Which is his right. We don’t know what the truth is. My point to you is as a media story, we don’t get to say the ten women are lying. We have to cover that story.”

“You wanna go back through the tapes of your show recently?” Gingrich snapped at Kelly. “You are fascinated with sex and you don’t care about public policy! That’s what I get out of watching you tonight!”

McConnell is running a ‘scam’ to keep Bolton from testifying so Trump’s trial can end without any more damage: columnist

Published

on

According to Greg Sargent at the Washington Post, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is trying to pull one over on the Democrats in his attempt to make sure former national security adviser John Bolton doesn't speak during the impeachment trial of Donald Trump -- and that Democrats should call his bluff.

Noting a CNN report that states, "A growing number of Republicans are pointing to President Donald Trump's threat to invoke executive privilege in order to make their case against subpoenas sought by Democrats for key witnesses and documents, a development that could bolster Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's goal of a swift end to the impeachment trial," as an excuse to keep Bolton at arms-length from testifying, the Wapo columnist said executive privilege may not be the stop-gap Republicans think it is.

Published

on

In a brutal column for the Daily Beast, longtime political observer Michael Tomasky went all-in on an attack on Republican senators for turning the impeachment trial of Donald Trump into a "Stalinist show trial" where the outcome is known before it even starts.

Reflecting on the impassioned case laid out by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) over the past three days, Tomasky wondered what it would take to get through to Republicans who seem uninterested in fulfilling their constitutional duties.
