10/31/16 – The bout between Megyn Kelly and Newt Gingrich
Wow! When you put two #15 FCILs in the ring, watch out! That is, you may not see much Animate emotion, nor physical punches being thrown, but the intensity in the room will be unequaled. That’s what happened last night between Fox’s Megyn Kelly and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who questioned the stories of women accusing Trump of sexual assault, as well as it’s overall importance. to the elections.
“So, so it’s worth 23 minutes of the three networks to cover that story, and Hillary Clinton had a secret speech in Brazil to a bank that pays her 225,000 dollars, saying her dream is an open border where 600 million people could come to America,” said Gingrich. “I mean, you want to go back through the tapes of your show recently, you are fascinated with sex, and you don’t care about public policy.”
Megyn looked dumbfounded. “Me? Really?” she said, laughing, and went on to argue the issues had been covered by her and others. Gingrich didn’t stop there, but went on to tell Kelly, “I just want to hear you use the words. I want to hear you use the words ‘Bill Clinton, sexual predator.’ I dare you. Say ‘Bill Clinton, sexual predator.’” Kelly responded, “Mr. Speaker, we’ve covered — excuse me, sir …” Megyn then later abruptly ended the segment by saying, “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.”
So what do we make of all this? There are those who wonder why Gingrich challenged Kelly to acknowledge Bill Clinton as a sexual predator (which actually has been proven, even forcing him to pay nearly a million dollars). Well, Megyn had implied Mr. Trump was a sexual predator just moments before during their combative conversation. It’s easy to understand why #15 Gingrich challenged #15 Kelly, and rightfully so. Yet, his words could have been better chosen and gracious, causing her and the viewing audience to better identify the best facts for comparison and in their proper contexts. Truth be told, it goes far beyond Newt’s discourse; this wise approach also applies to Ms. Megyn, Hillary, The Donald, and ALL the rest of us!
Scripture makes it clear that it’s always best to follow God’s advice in conversations, such as when He says through King Solomon in the Biblical book of Proverbs, “A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger,” or “Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body,” or “There is one whose rash words are like sword thrusts, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.”
