Fox News did not bend to Donald Trump's will, which was that they remove Megyn Kelly as moderator. Fox declined to do so, so Trump is out, tweeting a statement that is all you could hope for from the megalomaniac.
So why is Trump so mad at Megyn Kelly? Let's review just what he's so upset about from the last debate, the questions that have Trump still sore over how badly he was mistreated.
"Mr. Trump, one of the things people love about you is you speak your mind and you don't use a politician's filter. However, that is not without its downsides, in particular, when it comes to women. You've called women you don't like 'fat pigs,' 'dogs,' 'slobs' and 'disgusting animals.' […]
“Does that sound to you like the temperament of a man we should elect as president, and how will you answer the charge from Hillary Clinton, who was likely to be the Democratic nominee, that you are part of the war on women?"
By the way, Trump wants you to know:
And yet this lightweight reporter is asking questions that are too heavyweight for him? Like these?
"Mr. Trump, in 1999, you said you were, quote, 'very pro-choice.' Even supporting partial-birth abortion. You favored an assault weapons ban as well. In 2004, you said in most cases you identified as a Democrat. Even in this campaign, your critics say you often sound more like a Democrat than a Republican, calling several of your opponents on the stage things like 'clowns' and 'puppets.' When did you actually become a Republican?"
That actually is something probably a lot of Fox viewers would be interested in learning, at least those who haven't already decided that Trump's their man. Trump, however, is not accustomed to a mere woman challenging him, and so we're having his prolonged tantrum. Never mind that Kelly asked some pretty pointed questions of the other candidates, including challenging Ben Carson on his foreign policy flubs and asking "don't they raise legitimate questions about whether you are ready to be president?" She asked Scott Walker (remember him?) if he'd really let a mother die rather than have an abortion, and "with 83 percent of the American public in favor of a life exception, are you too out of the mainstream on this issue to win the general election?" She also asked John Kasich if he was really a Republican because he wanted to expand Medicaid.
It really is too much fun to watch the Republican front-runner at war with the Republican broadcast network. It's perfect, really.
