Skip to comments.Megyn Kelly and Donald Trump Arenít Apologizing
Posted on 08/11/2015 2:53:22 AM PDT by onyx
Fox News chairman Roger Ailes may want to smooth things over with Donald Trump, but that doesn't mean he's going to give in to all of Trump's demands. On Monday's Morning Joe, Trump refused to apologize for saying Megyn Kelly had "blood coming out of her wherever" during Thursday night's debate. "She should really be apologizing to me, to tell the truth," Trump said.
Tonight Kelly opened her show by briefly explaining why that won't be happening. "Apparently Mr. Trump thought the question I asked [about his comments on women] was unfair and felt I was attacking him," she said. "I felt he was asked a tough but fair question. We agree to disagree." Kelly added, "I certainly will not apologize for doing good journalism, so I’ll continue doing my job without fear or favor."
While Trump had reportedly declared he'd never appear on Fox News again, he tweeted that Ailes has assured him he'll be treated fairly, and he's now scheduled to appear on Fox & Friends and Hannity on Tuesday. But on Monday night, Trump went out of his way to mock the network's programming, and finally gave Rand Paul the fight he's been looking for. Here's everything he tweeted while watching Eric Bolling interview the senator while filling in on The O'Reilly Factor:
Truly weird Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky reminds me of a spoiled brat without a properly functioning brain. He was terrible at DEBATE!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 11, 2015
"@Roy_Propsner: @realDonaldTrump ...Don't give up, don't surrender your 3rd party OPTION"— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 11, 2015
We must stop the crime and killing machine that is illegal immigration. Rampant problems will only get worse. Take back our country!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 11, 2015
Why is @RandPaul allowed to take advantage of the people of Kentucky by running for Senator and Pres. Why should Kentucky be back up plan?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 11, 2015
.@ericbolling you can do much better than you did tonight on @oreillyfactor. Better luck tomorrow!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 11, 2015
.@SenTedCruz had a very good debate, far better than Rand Paul.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 11, 2015
Hillary Clinton also weighed in on the Trump/Kelly feud, saying of the allegedly menstruation-related remark, "While what Donald Trump said about Megyn Kelly is outrageous, what the rest of the Republicans are saying about all women is also outrageous." In her original debate question, Kelly predicted that Hillary Clinton would use Trump's remarks about women to allege that the GOP is waging a "war on women," so now everything has come full circle.
Mr. Trump, I expect, will continue with what has been a successful campaign so far, said Kelly. This is a tough business and I think its time now to move forward.
Yes, I guess those umpty thousand bad tweets and FB posts to her tell her “it’s time to move forward.”
I think this little episode was very revealing of the character (or lack thereof) of those beholdin’ to the Saudi RINOcracy.
I guess you could say there is “bad blood” between them.,
>>its time to move forward.
Even Goebbels would probably agree with Kelly that this particular lie/distortion/whatever/wherever has backfired right in her Faux [Nose] and isn’t worth repeating anymore.
I don’t think she can move forward......people are on to her now, and conservatives have long memories....
It’s not even a matter of forgiving.....it’s a matter of trust once lost....is hard earned back
And from what I saw of her attitude last night, she isn’t yielding anything.
I truly believe Trump loves our military and our country......He still gets the kudos from me.
It was a debate not an interview session, you bimbo.
I haven’t heard Kelly asking for any apology. I didn’t like the format of the debate asking gotcha questions, but I’ve always liked Kelly’s in your face style when it’s aimed at liberals. I’m not going to get worked up because it was pointed at someone I like.
I agree. Time for Kelly to move on.
Now that “Move On” Megyn has PIAPS on her side, the battle lines are clearly drawn.
Go Trump, you’re driving the DC-NY cartel crazy!!!
I had the kelly file on DVR but scratched it and the bitch will get very little future viewing from me.
I didn't watch any of her show last night and didn't miss a thing she had to say.
Too full of herself, success is hard to handle and she isn't doing it very well.
How interesting it is to see the Rats and RINOs climb aboard the same Fauxturd and start furiously polishing the deck as they all circle the porcelain vortex.
They always sniff each other out when they’re in trouble. Watch for Kelly to start blocking for Clinton.
2015-07-27 Monday ... "When did you stop
beating raping your wife" ... Megyn Kelly breathlessly announces the BREAKING NEWS that 23 years ago Trump "raped" his wife, a story recycled by 'The Daily Beast'. All hell breaks loose and Ivana, the "raped" wife shoots it down in hours. No mea culpa from Megyn. The next night, instead of a 'correction' she interviews the very 'The Daily Beast' smear merchant behind this rehash. JOURNALISM LESSON: Even ABC/NBC/CBS would have run an unambiguous apology stating 'The story should never have aired because it fails all our standards'. EPIC FAIL.
2015-08-06 Thursday ... "Why do you hate women?" ... DEBATE question #1a ... You've called women you don't like "fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals." ... Jeopardy Response: What did Trump say to Rosie O'Donnell after she attacked his family, and the women of the Miss America pageant Alex? Rush debunked this and Levin played the entire context from "The View". This was part of an ongoing feud, but it's worse than that. The fat nasty lesbian Rosie O'Donnell was ripping his family and the straight women of his pageant who aren't beastly creatures like her. TRUMP WAS DEFENDING WOMEN from this hideous he-she. What he said was minimal, much less than would be expected from any man. JOURNALISM LESSON: This corrupt moderator said he insulted women, plural, not specifying that it was a single specific person and left off the context of the feud. She effectively inverted the true meaning here from Trumps's actual *defending* women from this alleged "woman" - into an *attack* on all women. And I think I know why. If she had asked: "Why did you once called Rosie O'Donnell a fat pig?" That would have set up a homerun response such as: "Because Megyn, anyone who comes at me or my family, or disparages the women of the Miss America pageant better expect me to kick their ass. And as President you better believe that anyone that attacks the American people or our Armed Forces will be crushed." That's why she did it.
2015-08-06 Thursday ... "You disgusting old man!" ... DEBATE question #1b ... You once told a contestant on Celebrity Apprentice it would be a pretty picture to see her on her knees. ... Jeopardy Response: What did Trump say to the Apprentice contestant who herself said she dropped to her knees Alex? Mark Levin played the entire context from "The Apprentice" and it's no wonder that no-one, including the participants remembered this "incident". One person relayed the 'story' of another person down her knees - to Donald Trump. His comment was to the third person. It's almost insane the leap she attempted to make with this dirty trick. JOURNALISM LESSON: Don't let your interns comb through transcripts and always listen to the context yourself. I expected them by now to throw some unnamed researcher under the bus and retract the story by saying 'we should have been more thorough'.
WHITE KNIGHT COMPLICATIONS. One of the most detestable dirty tricks I have ever seen is from Erick Erickson at "RedState". His little attempt at rescuing poor Megyn Motormouth Kelly was to disinvite Trump from a RedState gathering.
But his most offensive ploy was to cap this off with: "'I don't want my daughter in the room with Donald Trump'". This is loaded with sick, disgusting innuendo that is now imprinted all over the internet thanks to the one-liner heading the story. This kind of nasty trick can easily be done to any one, including you Erick, and that is why we never do such a thing unless it is REALLY deserved.
Ironically for them and schadenfreude for us, these dirty tricks have only boosted Trump's support among people who bother to check these facts. This is because it is human nature to favor underdogs, and to support people being treated unfairly, and to punish bullies. The lowlife tricksters have astonishingly managed to turn Trump into an underdog being harassed by bullies and yet are surprised by the result. Now that's what I call justice. The good Lord it seems, does have a supreme sense of humor, and justice.
From the words she gave to Howard Starn....it appears she can and does handle a good many ‘subjects’ using the art of her womanhood. That must the the reason she considers herself a ‘pro’.
Then again, do the sons of Murdock even lean that way? Ailes is gone and Murdock sons are now running the show. Down the drain Fox spins. Or is the word ‘sucks’?
Would Mr Red State say the same about Bill Clinton? “I don’t want my daughter in the same room with him’
“It was a debate not an interview session, you bimbo.”........
I have been in many debates and do NOT see the recent circus as a true debate. It was nothing more than a question and answer session. Yes, a few verbal interactions did take place but in my opinion, they were NOT debates.
It wasn’t even a Q&A. It was an Alinskite ambush, hit the strongest target first to isolate and ridicule hoping for an error then proceed down the power line with snide unimportant questions such as “Does God speak to you?
