Donald Trump has withdrawn from Thursday’s Fox News debate because Fox refused to dismiss Megyn Kelly as a debate moderator.
In August, Megyn Kelly asked Donald Trump a tough question about his comments regarding women. He then went on a multi-day spree attacking Megyn Kelly and accusing her of bleeding out of her “where ever.”
Now, Trump has declared he will organize a competing event because Kelly is going to again get the opportunity to ask him questions. Trump’s supporters say that, like with National Review being dismissed from the Houston debate, Megyn Kelly should be dismissed from this debate.
That would be fair except National Review has explicitly endorsed the “Against Trump” position and Megyn Kelly has made no endorsement and has even had pro-Trump supporters on her television show to praise Trump. What makes the Trump decision to back out of the debate even more absurd is that Trump is now claiming it has to do with a Fox News press release, not about Kelly herself. Sticks and stones may break his bones, but press releases make him run away like a little girl.
Donald Trump cannot handle tough questions from Megyn Kelly, but thinks he can handle Hillary Clinton, Vladimir Putin, and ISIS. All Megyn Kelly intends to do is ask Trump questions. If he can’t handle those questions, it boggles the mind to think he can handle Hillary Clinton on a debate stage hurling questions at him. It likewise seems rather impossible to imagine Trump could handle Vladimir Putin or the ISIS jihadists.
All they would have to do is ask Trump a tough question and he’d skulk away.
What a wimp. What a loser.
