The feud between Donald Trump and FOX News began as soon as the first debate.
Megyn Kelly lead the debate with a question to Trump regarding his alleged indecent comments about women (to which Trump laughed off replying that he had only said such things about Rosie O’Donnell). Trump didn’t let it end there however, blasting Kelly on Twitter after the debate, and for many weeks after.
Trump ended up skipping the next FOX debate with her as moderator, holding his own event instead.
You’d think it would be over by now, but Trump attacked her again just the other night.
Everybody should boycott the @megynkelly show. Never worth watching. Always a hit on Trump! She is sick, & the most overrated person on tv.

Crazy @megynkelly says I don't (won't) go on her show and she still gets good ratings. But almost all of her shows are negative hits on me!

Except this time FOX News is now firing back.
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.
So what does this mean for Trump? Usually when we say the media is against a candidate, we’re referring to the liberal media – which is most of the media. Trump truly has the entire media against him.
I guess we shouldn’t expect him to show up to any debates they host anytime soon! What do you think of this ongoing battle between Trump and Fox News? Share your thoughts below!
