Like some sick jilted lover, Donald Trump can't seem to get over the fact that Megyn Kelly just isn't that into him. Today, he urged his Twitter followers to boycott her show. UPDATED with Fox News' response, Bret Baier's, Brit Hume's and Dana Perino's.
Ever since Kelly asked him a tough question at the first Republican debate, Donald Trump - the man who thinks he's qualified to be president the most powerful country in the world - has been going on sexist, adolescent-like benders against Kelly. Today's childishness calls for a boycott of The Kelly File.
Even Trump's pal, Geraldo Rivera, says, "basta.":
UPDATE: Fox News has responded:
Donald Trump’s vitriolic attacks against Megyn Kelly and his extreme, sick obsession with her is beneath the dignity of a presidential candidate who wants to occupy the highest office in the land. Megyn is an exemplary journalist and one of the leading anchors in America — we’re extremely proud of her phenomenal work and continue to fully support her throughout every day of Trump’s endless barrage of crude and sexist verbal assaults. As the mother of three young children, with a successful law career and the second highest rated show in cable news, it’s especially deplorable for her to be repeatedly abused just for doing her job.
But will the network go back to Trump adoration as usual?
UPDATE 2: Bret Baier says "Enough."
Dana Perino said, "Hear hear" to Baier.
Brit Hume retweeted Fox's condemnation.
I’m also getting a chuckle at dyed-in-the-wool establishment Republican and Dubya secret gay lover boy Bret Baier chest thumping Fox News “cover[s] the race fairly.” Sure, if you’re a dependable establishment Republican Roger Ailes thinks has potential to set up shop in the Oval Office. Otherwise, prepare to get [metaphorically] knifed by the Foxies on the way to the White House.
