Trump Throws Twitter Temper Tantrum As Megyn Kelly Returns To Her Show

Last night, Megyn Kelly returned to her Fox News gig, “The Kelly File,” after an 11-day vacation that was speculated (and denied) to be connected to Donald Trump’s drama regarding the first GOP debate. And, of course, Donald Trump decided to stir up more drama on Twitter:

And, for good measure, he retweeted followers who were taking even lower blows at Kelly, plus a dig, for some reason, at Nancy Grace’s looks

And then there’s this gem:

Let’s look at that: “People always take cheap shots at you, they can’t handle the truth.” Let’s all remember that all of the temper tantrums Trump has had over the last few weeks have stemmed from this question:

“One of the things people love about you is that you speak your mind, don’t use a politician’s filter. But that has its downsides, in particular when it comes to women. You call women you don’t like ‘fat pigs,’ ‘dogs,’ ‘slobs,’ and ‘disgusting animals.’ […] You once told a contestant on ‘The Celebrity Apprentice’ that it ‘would be a pretty picture to see her on her knees.’ Does that sound to you like the temperament of someone we should elect as president? […] How would you answer the question from Hillary Clinton…that you are part of the war on women?”

As far as “cheap shots” go, calling someone a bimbo, a fat pig, a dog, a slob, or a disgusting animal seems worse than saying “has no real policy ideas” and “cannot relate to women, who, by the way, constitute half of the American population.” And as far as “not handling the truth” goes, most of Kelly’s question was a recitation of documented low blows Trump has taken at other people – or, in other words, truthful, factual statements about his behavior. And apparently, Trump can’t handle that.

But whatever, I guess! Either this will blow over, or Trump will continue to beat this dead horse until the public tide turns against him. In the meantime, Trump is still polling twice as well as any other GOP candidate, which may or may not say a lot about the standard of decorum to which Americans hold our public figures.
