Donald Trump is now threatening that he might not show up at Thursday’s Republican debate on Fox News, as a result of Fox anchor and debate co-moderator Megyn Kelly allegedly being nasty to him. And in the true fashion of a pro-wrestling “heel” character, he is doing this with a series of vicious personal attacks on Kelly herself — which itself seems like a hint that he might simply be drumming up more ratings for a debate he will indeed attend.

Notably, Trump made this threat in an interview on one of Fox’s competitors — CNN, where he sat down with Wolf Blitzer.

“I mean, I don’t like her. She doesn’t treat me fairly, I’m not a big fan of hers at all. I don’t care, she probably was — I might be the best thing that ever happened to her. Whoever even heard of her before the last debate? But I thought she was very unfair in the last debate. A lot of people said I won that debate — everybody said I won the last debate.

He added: “But I’m not a fan of Megyn Kelly, I don’t like her — she probably doesn’t like me, and that’s okay. But she better be fair. I’d like to go to the debate; I enjoy the debates; I’ve done well in the debates. Every single poll has said I’ve won every debate. But we’re gonna see what happens — gonna be exciting.”

Blitzer also asked The Donald whether he had decided “100 percent” to actually go to the debate.

“They’ll see, if I think I’m going to be treated unfairly, I’ll do something else,” Trump responded. “But I don’t think she can treat me fairly actually. I think she’s very biased and I don’t think she can treat me fairly.”

At the very first Republican debate this past August, Kelly asked Trump about previous offensive comments he had publicly made about women who were adversaries of his, such as calling them “fat pigs,” “dogs,” “slobs,” and “disgusting animals.”

Soon after the debate, Trump later commented in the press about Kelly: “You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her — wherever.” The remark was widely interpreted as a remark about her menstrual cycle — a charge that he has denied. He also said during the ensuing controversy, “she asked me a very inappropriate question. She should really be apologizing to me, you want to know the truth.”

      You’re right. The Donald does sound a lot like Ali, doesn’t he? He’ll probably come after me for mentioning a Muslim name in the same sentence as I mentioned him.

      Without him, maybe, and that’s a big maybe, they would cover more issues of substance. Does anyone else think he sounds like a 12 year old boy? What would he do as POTUS when all the slings and arrows come after him from across the country, as they eventually do for every president? He has the thinnest skin of anyone who ever ran for the highest office. His enemies list may make Nixon’s look like baby stuff. What is he capable of regarding revenge?

    What a big baby.
    Wa Wa, that mean woman keeps asking me tough questions I don’t like. Boo Hoo.

    And he thinks world leaders will be nice to this yahoo? Grow up, Donnie, it isn’t all about you, it is really about America….

      I think this is along the lines of standing on Fifth Avenue and shooting people and not losing votes. Every time this creep ratchets up another notch, his numbers go up and his supporters hate the media with a passion. Once again, it will work. Besides, the Dems on a weekend night had more watchers last time than the Republican debates.

  3. MVH1 says:

    He’s just showing he can get away with anything at all he wants. He’s a creep and his unfavorables are extraordinary. Let me go ahead and finish off the party. They need serious shaking up and see what’s left at the end.

    Poor little Donnie is going to take his ball and go home because the other kids won’t play by HIS rules. What a pity!!! BWAAAHAAA!!

    He is a notorious womanizer, even though his ex-wives have been well paid for their silence, so little is said about it. Kelly just asked about his negative, very public comments about women – not a deep analysis about his obvious sexism. I am sure she will “toll the (Fox) party line” and be very solicitous this time.

    Or Fox could just replace her with any one of their other brain dead blonde Barbies with very short skirts and no-one would know the difference.

    t rump, running to be “WHINER IN CHIEF”.

  8. The lucky one says:

    “She doesn’t treat me fairly” – translation: “She doesn’t express absolute adoration for my magnificence.”
