In just two weeks, millions of Americans will decide who the next President of the United States will be. For those who discus the election with the media, tempers are at an all-time high.

Newt goes nuclear

When Donald Trump threw his name into the hat for the Republican nomination, it was only a matter of time before the party was split in their support. While Trump has his section of supporters, other Republicans and conservative news pundits have been vocal in their opposition to the former host of "The Apprentice." The first of many Trump feuds with the media came when he clashed with Fox News host Megyn Kelly after she pressed him on his controversial history with women while moderating the first Republican debate.

In the months that have passed, Kelly has often clashed with Trump surrogates, which was no different during the October 25 edition of "The Kelly File" on Fox News, as reported by Mediaite.

Joining host Megyn Kelly was Trump surrogate and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich. Feeling the pressure that has been on the Trump campaign, Gingrich quickly became frustrated during his interview with Kelly, starting with when she brought up the GOP nominee's decline in recent polls. Where the segment really went off the rails was when Kelly highlighted the nearly one dozen women who have accused Trump of sexual assault, while labeling him a "sexual predator."

"I'm sick and tired of people like you using language that's inflammatory that's not true!" Gingrich shouted, calling it "very unfair" for Kelly to use the term "sexual predator." Kelly responded, stating, "Your defensiveness on this may speak volumes, sir." At this point, Gingrich couldn't control his emotions.

Final meltdown

"You wanna go back through the tapes of your show recently?" Gingrich asked, accusing Kelly of being "fascinated with sex." When it was clear that the former House Speaker couldn't control himself, Kelly recommended that Gingrich "take your anger issues and spend some time working on them."

Moving forward

Gingrich's response echoes the reaction from many in the Trump campaign who are starting to believe that the writing is on the wall. The latest round of polling shows Trump trailing Hillary Clinton by nearly double-digits on a national level, while he continues his slide in key battleground states, including Virginia, Wisconsin, and Florida.

With an electoral map that is shrinking in opportunity, the consensus is that Clinton will become the next leader of the free world.
