"Either get rid of Megyn Kelly, or I'm not doing the debate. I've won every single debate. I'm in the lead by far. And, frankly, I don't like FOX news playing games ... Megyn Kelly is, I think, a third rate reporter ... they could get someone better ... I don't want to make FOX rich. I asked them to give the money to the Wounded Warriors. I don't want to be used by FOX news. I want to give money to the veterans, not FOX news."

Even I have to admit, Trump knows how to negotiate. He doesn't like Megyn Kelly, make Fox News the bad guy if they keep her around.

You like bullying? That is essentially Trump's tactic.

That is not bullying. Like, that is the diametric opposite of bullying. When you've got a swarm of journalists out to attack one guy, the one guy who is taking it all cannot be reasonably be accused of bullying.

Her questions were fair, whether or not Trump likes them. A President or Candidate cannot just not answer questions about his insulting women or not getting the difference between Kurds and Quds because he doesn't like them, or because he thinks they're "gotcha questions." He responded with personal attacks. That's bullying.

Nah. He could care less if she is there. He just knows he will get lots of cheering "fans" by saying this.

I don't think so. He genuinely doesn't like Megyn Kelly, and after the totally idiotic and pointed question she asked him, I don't blame him.

Please.... If she is there, she will either be passive, or give him yet another chance to display his trademark nastyness, and run the cycle again. This just gives him another sharp tool before the debate. If he really dislikes her, all the better for him.

If he is there, she won't be. If she is there, he won't be. It's really that simple.

His whole schtick is that he doesn't take sh!t from anyone, and most certainly not a "lightweight" and "third rate" reporter who is employed by Roger Ailes.

I wouldn't mind a debate minus Trump. I don't think Ailes would either. Sure, he'd lose on some ratings, but it would be nice.

CNN: "Fox exists as a permanent political campaign."

I agree.

FOX has discredited itself, really.

I wonder if Trump will try to drive the company under. I think he will. It makes me smile.

Oh I think it's possible. Trump has destabilized FOX, and I love it.

The statement from a FOX News spokesperson read: "We learned from a secret back channel that the Ayatollah and Putin both intend to treat Donald Trump unfairly when they meet with him if he becomes president " a nefarious source tells us that Trump has his own secret plan to replace the Cabinet with his Twitter followers to see if he should even go to those meetings."

http://www.nbcnews.com...

Roger Ailes personally wrote that. Trump is pissed. This is personal.... and it's beautiful.

Trump has made this GOP primary so much better than I thought it would be.

The fact that FOX is the only Republican whore mouthpiece doesn't mean that he can't draw viewers from FOX to, for example, CNN.

Pretty much. Trump is going to destroy FOX news in the debate. He is literally taking money out of Roger Ailes' pocket, and it's beautiful.

I love it. I would vote for him, if he were a Democrat.

Ted Cruz's campaign manager is such a stupid jackass, too. He's like "Trump is not letting the voters discern for themselves...." blah blah blah "it's inexcusable" blah blah blah

It's idiotic. Trump has been to and won every single debate. Every one of them.

Fox has discredited itself. Cruz is a whore. Roger Ailes has seriously screwed up.

That's probably good for Trump. He really isn't a very good debater - all of his polls have dipped following every debate. They recover, sure, but that's telling.

That is not bullying. Like, that is the diametric opposite of bullying. When you've got a swarm of journalists out to attack one guy, the one guy who is taking it all cannot be reasonably be accused of bullying.

Nah. He could care less if she is there. He just knows he will get lots of cheering "fans" by saying this.

I don't think so. He genuinely doesn't like Megyn Kelly, and after the totally idiotic and pointed question she asked him, I don't blame him.

Please.... If she is there, she will either be passive, or give him yet another chance to display his trademark nastyness, and run the cycle again. This just gives him another sharp tool before the debate. If he really dislikes her, all the better for him.

If he is there, she won't be. If she is there, he won't be. It's really that simple.

His whole schtick is that he doesn't take sh!t from anyone, and most certainly not a "lightweight" and "third rate" reporter who is employed by Roger Ailes.

And I think that would work great for him. He could/would spend the entire time tweeting. It would be epic.
