On Tuesday, Fox News’ Megyn Kelly exploded in a heated exchange with former House Speaker Newt Gingrich over coverage of Hillary Clinton’s numerous scandals.  After Gingrich excoriated her for the blatant bias which has permeated the media, Kelly ended by telling him to “take your anger issues and spend some time working on them…”

Here’s a transcript, provided by Newsbusters:

NEWT GINGRICH: And therefore, we’re going to send Bill Clinton back to the East Wing because after all, you’re worried about the sexual predators.

MEGYN KELLY: Yeah, listen, it’s not about me. It’s about the women and men in America and the poll numbers show us that the women of America are very concerned about these allegations and in large part believe that they are a real issue and don’t dismiss the women, sir.

GINGRICH: You want to comment on whether — do you want to comment on whether the Clinton ticket has a relationship to a sexual predator?

KELLY: We on The Kelly File have covered that story as well, sir. I will tell you the polls.

GINGRICH: No, I actually want to hear you use the words. I want to hear your words, Bill Clinton sexual predator. I dare you. Say Bill Clinton sexual predator.

KELLY: Mr. Speaker —

GINGRICH: Disbarred by the Iowa — Arkansas bar —

KELLY: — excuse me sir.

GINGRICH: — disbarred by the Arkansas bar.

KELLY: Excuse me.

GINGRICH: $850,000 penalty.

KELLY: Excuse me, sir. We on The Kelly File have covered the Clinton matter as well. We’ve hosted Kathleen Willey,

GINGRICH: Try saying it.

KELLY: We’ve covered the examples of him being accused as well but he’s not on the ticket and the polls also show that the American public is less interested —

GINGRICH: He’ll be in the East Wing —

KELLY: — in the deeds of Hillary Clinton’s husband than they are in the deeds of the man who asked us to make his president, Donald Trump. We’re going to have to leave it at that and you can take your anger issues and spend some time working on them, Mr. Speaker. Thanks for being here.

GINGRICH: And you — and you too, Megyn.

So we want to hear from you. Did Kelly go too far? And should she be dropped from the network?
