Trump himself congratulated Gingrich this morning, calling it an "amazing interview", and that "we don't play games".

Fox New's leading anchorwoman is pushing for equal pay as she negotiates her next contract with the network, the Wall Street Journal reported October 26, citing anonymous sources familiar with the matter. "I'm not taking a position on it".

The host of The Kelly File, who changed agents and publicity teams since a year ago, is reportedly in active talks over her Fox contract.

"I'm sick and exhausted of people like you using language that's inflammatory, that's not true", Gingrich said.

"Sure, OK", Gingrich shot back.

Kelly said that story was worth covering, too, and Fox did cover it.

Gingrich is uniquely unqualified to talk about fascination with sex, Noah suggested, telling his audience the former House Speaker cheated on two ex-wives. He discussed the "downsides" of consuming news in preferred "bubbles": "You get your news, not the news", Noah said.

Kelly responded that her program had covered allegations against the former president, before adding that "he's not on the ticket".

The New York Times reports that "every rival network has expressed interest in picking her up" and Kelly herself hinted to Variety that she might be ready to move on.

"You want to comment on whether the Clinton ticket has a relationship to a sexual predator?"

The Journal reported that sources say in talks over a potential new contract with Fox News, Kelly is asking for "north of $20 million" a year, which would put her on level with Bill O'Reilly, the current ratings leader at the cable-news channel.

"First off, everybody is more fascinated with sex than public policy", said Colbert.

Kelly did not repeat the words, and ended the interview.

Gingrich said that the Clinton email scandal has begun to tarnish the FBI's reputation.

"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", Kelly said.
