The Trump spectacle of skipping a debate because of Megyn Kelly is reaching new heights. I happen to think the man who said he was going to “bomb the sh*t out of ISIS” and kill their families, comes off as a tad weak when he throws a hissy fit because he can’t get over a question Megyn Kelly asked him nearly six months ago.
The question was perfectly valid. She repeated things to Trump he said and then asked how he would deal with the attacks likely to come from Democrats if he was the nominee. Trump lost it and since then has done nothing but whine about it. Now he thinks people will say “How high?” when he says “Jump!” and wanted Kelly out as a moderator of the upcoming debate. Fox News, to its credit did not capitulate to such absurd demands and told him to get stuck. He chose to slink off instead.
One of Trump’s spokespeople, Corey Lewandowski had the following to say about Kelly to a Fox News Executive:
“In a call last Saturday with a Fox News executive, Lewandowski stated that Megyn had a ‘rough couple of days after that last debate’ and he ‘would hate to have her go through that again.’”
Greg Gutfeld was not happy about this and here is what he had to say:
Is it a threat in the physical sense? No, but one could easily see given the freak out Trump supporters had the last time after the last debate, it’s likely Trump could cause a lot of problems for Kelly, online. A good number of Trump supporters are like Obama-Bots. He’ll use the word “bimbo” to describe Kelly and before you know it ton of his Twitter followers will follow suit.
And he knows it.
He’s running for President of the United States, not Russia. He doesn’t get to dictate who asks him questions at a debate. You know who else doesn’t appear on Fox News?
