Donald Trump's feud with Fox News is definitely on again. Who will blink first this time?
Last night, I noted that Trump had started ranting about Megyn Kelly again on Twitter. Apparently, he did not get the consoling response from Fox his ego thinks he deserves.
Here's Trump's latest Twitter tantrum:
(H/T Mother Jones)
This is just what I predicted last month when I wrote, "(M)y prediction is that Trump and Ailes, who are or were friends, will continue to get along when their interests converge and continue to snipe when they don’t. I also noted that Fox chief Roger Ailes has been caving to Trump:
...Ailes is acting uncharacteristically wimpy. When the feud began, in the aftermath of the debate, Ailes could have forcefully come out and blasted Trump for objecting to questions that Ailes almost surely approved of, if not helped conceive. Instead, he claimed to have had nothing to do with their formulation. Then he was silent in the wake of Trump’s first onslaught against Kelly. Even in his latest statement, Ailes didn’t really demand an apology from Trump, he kinda sorta asked for one, saying, “Donald Trump rarely apologizes, although in this case, he should.”
Will Ailes cave again? Stay tuned!
