Once again Donald Trump is engaging in his on-again, off-again war of words with Fox News host Megyn Kelly.
This all began last year when Kelly asked Trump some very tough questions about derogatory comments he had made about women over the years. And it has continued in the months since, with Trump tweeting out things from time to time about Kelly and some Trump supporters even going so far as to threaten Kelly’s life.
Just yesterday, Trump took to social media and posted this:
Everybody should boycott the @megynkelly show. Never worth watching. Always a hit on Trump! She is sick, & the most overrated person on tv.

Fox, it would appear, has had more than enough of Trump’s sophomoric temper tantrums, and they issued a statement noting:
“Donald Trump’s vitriolic attacks against Megyn Kelly and his extreme, sick obsession with her is beneath the dignity of a presidential candidate who wants to occupy the highest office in the land. Megyn is an exemplary journalist and one of the leading anchors in America — we’re extremely proud of her phenomenal work and continue to fully support her throughout every day of Trump’s endless barrage of crude and sexist verbal assaults. As the mother of three young children, with a successful law career and the second highest rated show in cable news, it’s especially deplorable for her to be repeatedly abused just for doing her job.”
Dignity? Trump has none of that. Crude and sexist? Trump has been that since he learned how to talk. Yet it seems odd that Fox would issue such a statement when they are constantly giving this douchebag free airtime on their network. If they really want to punish Trump, they should impose a 90-day moratorium on appearances from him, either in person or via telephone. That’s how you get even with a narcissist.
So, Fox, while I agree with your statement, do you have the stones to keep this dillhole off your airwaves?
