Newt Gingrich Lashes Out at Megyn Kelly on 'Anger Issues'

Updated: Oct 26, 2016 11:55 AM ET

Megyn Kelly and Newt Gingrich got into a spat over sexual assault allegations against Donald Trump on Tuesday night, and the debacle ended with Kelly telling Gingrich, "You can take your anger issues and spend sometime working on them, Mr. Speaker." "And you, too," he replied.

Gingrich re-upped the conflict on Wednesday morning, tweeting, "For the record, @megynkelly was wrong, i don't have anger management issues. I do have media bias issues!"

Still, when asked by a pool reporter on Wednesday whether he thought the interview had gotten "a little rough," Gingrich reportedly said, "That's just the business."

Kelly pressed Gingrich on Trump's polling collapse in the wake of a leaked tape where he made sexually explicit comments about touching women without their consent, and Gingrich said it was unfair that the media had focused so much on the allegations that Trump is a sexual predator. "I'm sick and tired of people like you using language that's inflammatory that's not true," Gingrich said, accusing Kelly of being “fascinated with sex.”

"Excuse me, Mr. Speaker, you have no idea whether it's true or not," Kelly responded. "As a media story, we don't get to say the 10 women are lying. We have to cover that story, sir."

Trump himself brought up the interview unprompted at a hotel opening on Wednesday, praising Gingrich:
