There have been many losers to come out of the 2016 Presidential Election.
Most specifically, Donald Trump and… well… anyone who continues to stand up for Donald Trump.
But there’s been one clear winner from the past several months of campaigning; and we’re not even talking about Hillary Clinton, no matter what is likely to transpire on November 8.
We’re talking about Megyn Kelly.
Kelly called Trump out on his misogyny from the very beginning.
All those people who acted shocked and appalled over what Trump said to Billy Bush in that notorious Access Hollywood video?
All those politicians who came out and castigated Trump for his demeaning words about women and his implied sexual assault?
Please. Literally, the very first question asked of Trump at a Republican Primary Debate was over the way he has treated women and talked about women in the past.
And that question was asked by Kelly.
From there, of course, Trump slammed Kelly at every turn, even questioning at one point whether or not she was on her period at the debate.
Really. He said that.
So this brings us to Tuesday night and Kelly having Newt Gingrich on her Fox News program as a guest.
The former Speaker of the House took issue with the way Kelly and other members of the media have been covering the campaign, arguing that too much time has been spent focusing on Trump’s sexual harassment allegations.
The tension-filled segment started with Kelly explaining why Trump is behind in the polls, citing that 2005 Access Hollywood tape and Trump lashing out at nearly every woman who has made allegations about him.
People have a right to hear those charges, she argues in the footage below.
“I’m sick and tired of people like you using language that’s inflammatory that’s not true!" Gingrich blew up, referring to the term sexual predator being applied to Trump.
"When you use the words, you took a position. And I think it’s very unfair of you to do that, Megyn!” Gingrich said.
To which Kelly calmly replied:
“Your defensiveness on this may speak volumes, sir.”
At one point, after Kelly acknowledged that Bill Clinton has an unsavory history with women and that her show has covered it in detail, Gingrich snapped as follows:
“You wanna go back through the tapes of your show recently? You are fascinated with sex and you don’t care about public policy!"
It’s worth watching the video above just to see Kelly’s priceless response to this accusation.
After Gingrich continued to sound like a little child, challenging Kelly to say the words “Bill Clinton sexual predator," the host somehow kept her chill demeanor and ended the segment by politely saying:
“You can take your anger issues and spend some time working on them.”
It. Was. AWESOME!
Check out the clip above and weigh in:
Who do you think won this faceoff? Kelly or Gingrich?
Or, as has so often been the case throughout this election, are we all losers in the end?
