Nearly three weeks after the Fox News debate, Donald Trump still can’t get over the fact that he didn’t like Megyn Kelly’s questioning. Yesterday, he tweeted: “I liked The Kelly File much better without @megynkelly. Perhaps she could take another eleven day unscheduled vacation!”
Trump also re-tweeted this charming statement: “The bimbo back in town. I hope not for long.”
Fox News isn’t amused. Its staffers — including Bret Baier — have complained, and Roger Ailes has issued a formal denunciation. Even Sean Hannity wants Trump to “leave Megyn Kelly alone.”
Allahpundit has collected the relevant tweets, counter-tweets, and statements. He offers two theories as to why Trump still wants to attack Kelly.
My theory is simple: Trump is an incorrigible jerk. For him, the personal is always the political, and it’s not clear that the political is anything other than the personal.
Barack Obama is a petty man. But even after two terms of Obama, I’m not sure we’re prepared for a president as petty as Donald Trump.
