The GOP is currently in shambles, and most of that can be attributed to Mr. Donald J. Trump. It’s well known that the business mogul has beef with a lot of media personalities, such as Rosie O’Donnell and, more recently, Fox News reporter Megyn Kelly. On Friday, Trump took to Twitter to add fuel to ongoing fire with Kelly.
On Saturday Trump went on a Twitter tirade, tweeting:
Fox News released a statement defending Kelly against Trump’s ongoing abusive attacks, calling his obsession with her “extreme” and “sick,” more or less insinuating he may be mentally ill.
‘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.’
The feud between Trump and Kelly started back in August at the first Republican presidential debate, when Kelly was simply doing her job by asking Trump about his previous degrading and sexist comments toward women.
Trump later went on to back out of a debate where Kelly was moderating, showing his lack of maturity and down right misogynistic attitude. Imagine, a President who dislikes someone and decides to back out of his duties like a little two-year-old child!
Kelly is a stellar journalist and anchorwoman. She refuses to ask simple questions that can be easily answered, and actually holds Trump accountable for his behavior. It seems Trump is only interested in those who blindly agree with him and worship him like a God.
Things have gotten so bad that Fox News Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes has called on him to issue an apology to Kelly for his vicious attacks, saying:
‘Donald Trump’s surprise and unprovoked attack on Megyn Kelly during her show last night is as unacceptable as it is disturbing. Megyn Kelly represents the very best of American journalism and all of us at FOX News Channel reject the crude and irresponsible attempts to suggest otherwise. I could not be more proud of Megyn for her professionalism and class in the face of all of Mr. Trump’s verbal assaults. Her questioning of Mr. Trump at the debate was tough but fair, and I fully support her as she continues to ask the probing and challenging questions that all presidential candidates may find difficult to answer. Donald Trump rarely apologizes, although in this case, he should. We have never been deterred by politicians or anyone else attacking us for doing our job, much less allowed ourselves to be bullied by anyone and we’re certainly not going to start now. All of our journalists will continue to report in the fair and balanced way that has made FOX News Channel the number one news network in the industry.’
To which Trump took to Twitter to reply, tweeting:
Clearly Trump is a very sick man and not someone anyone should want running their country.
