Trump's feud with Megyn Kelly heats back up: Fox News escalates with VERY strong worded letter... "Verbal sexist assaults, abuse and sick obsession"
Fox News’ Megyn Kelly and Republican candidate Donald Trump have been going head to head for some time now. The feud stems from the first Republican debate in August 2015, when Kelly asked Trump what he later deemed to be “overly personal and unfair” questions.
Now, Kelly is going after fellow Fox News star Bill O’Reilly, arguing that he should have defended her more. Her comment followed an interview of Trump on “The O’Reilly Factor.”
“I do wish that O’Reilly had defended me more in his interview with Trump,” she commented. “I would have defended him more. Honestly? People think I’m fearless. But I’m human. I was not looking forward to going out on that stage and dealing with Trump if he was going to attack me.”
Kelly added that she “felt the pressure of that and the stress of that” but ultimately decided to tackle the situation head-on. She also criticized Trump for skipping the event.
“The result in Iowa, to the extent it damaged Trump’s fortunes, as Trump believes it did, will hopefully serve as a lesson to other politicians that they bully the media at their own peril,” Kelly stated. “I love when they attack me personally because it means they don’t have a political argument left.”
Now, Trump has declined to take the stage at the upcoming debate in Salt Lake City, and Kasich will also not be appearing. That means that the event slotted for next Monday has been canceled.
