Donald Trump reiterated he doesn’t owe Fox News’ Megyn Kelly an apology for controversial comments about blood coming out of her “wherever” on Monday. In fact, she owes him one.
“She should really be apologizing to me if you want to know the truth,” Trump said, adding he doesn’t understand why Fox News doesn’t treat him well.
“They didn’t ask me about the economy, they didn’t ask me about jobs,” he continued, claiming the moderators went into attack mode.
In response to a question about whether he’s spoken to network chairman Roger Ailes, Trump declined to answer: “I don’t want to say that… why should I say it, I’m not going to embarrass anyone,” he said. “My whole life has been led on the theory that I do not want to embarrass people.”
As TheWrap previously reported, the Fox News vs. Donald Trump debate storyline — now with Trump’s comments about Kelly adding fuel to the fire — sets up the new quasi-2016 campaign, pitting the real estate mogul against the conservative-leaning network.
For GOP candidates, having Fox in your corner is vital to victory. So far, Megyn Kelly hasn’t commented on Trump’s comments.
Megyn Fox has probably done Trump a big favor, now people are talking about him more than ever and Faux news has been known for a long time as ratings and agenda and not responsible journalism. But then again don’t they all do that?
