After Fox News had hinted that Donald Trump was mentally ill and obsessed with Megyn Kelly, the Republican frontrunner responded with an unhinged rant that was obsessed with Megyn Kelly.
After Trump had renewed his Kelly bashing with a tweet, Fox News put out a statement that called him sick and obsessed with the FNC host.
Trump responded with a statement that proved Fox News correct, “Megyn Kelly is a highly overrated reporter and anchor that constantly disparages Mr. Trump with negative and inaccurate reports. Despite the fact he wants nothing to do with her and will not appear on her show due to her extremely biased reporting, much of the program is about him anyway on a nightly basis. In fact, Fox News has begged Mr. Trump to do a prime time special to be broadcast on the Fox Network, not cable, with Megyn Kelly. He has turned them down. Likewise, they recently called for an unsolicited and unplanned debate with Kelly as a featured moderator. He turned them down and they immediately canceled. On the Fox debate that Mr. Trump did not do, they received by far their lowest rating. Unlike Megyn Kelly, who resorts to putting out statements via Fox News, Mr. Trump will continue to defend himself against the inordinate amount of unfair and inaccurate coverage he receives on her second-rate show each night.”
The Trump statement mentioned Kelly by name four times in a single paragraph. Trump is clearly obsessed with Megyn Kelly and his one-sided feud with the Fox News anchor is revealing why he should never be elected president.
Donald Trump is mentally unstable and in such a child-like state that he is unable to accept the slightest criticism or slight. Trump behaves like a man who has created an entire fictional universe which he is the center of. Donald Trump is melting down over Megyn Kelly because she called out his sexist language and attacks on women during the first Republican presidential debate.
Megyn Kelly’s “crime” in the eyes of Donald Trump was that she questioned him about words that have come out of his own mouth in the past.
If Donald Trump will hold this deep of a grudge against someone who works for a cable network that he considers “friendly” to his campaign, imagine what this man would do to his real political opponents as president.
Trump is deranged, and sane people across the political spectrum must come together to make sure that Donald Trump is not elected to be the nation’s next president.
