Donald Trump lashes out at Megyn Kelly: Boycott her show because ‘she is sick’

Published

on

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s detente with Fox News host Megyn Kelly ended on Friday when he called on his fans to boycott her show, The Hill reported.

“Never worth watching. [It is] always a hit on Trump,” he posted on Twitter. “She is sick [and] the most overrated person on TV.”

The post can be seen in full below:

Trump’s remark came a day after he accused the Kelly File host of devoting her shows to him despite “always complaining” about the candidate. It is the latest salvo in the on-again off-again feud between the real estate mogul and the conservative network, which he has accused at various points of being unfair to him.

But just last week, she defended Trump, saying protesters at his canceled rally in Chicago “shut down” his right to free speech.

The mogul’s fans have also attacked Kelly for asking about the lawsuit concerning Trump University. Trump most notably insulted Kelly last August, when he claimed she had “blood coming out of her wherever” following a GOP candidate debate.

While Fox officials have defended Kelly in the past, on Friday contributor Geraldo Rivera was the first to publicly respond to Trump, telling him, “I love you man but basta.”

“This obsession with [Kelly] is weird [and] unhelpful,” Rivera replied on Twitter. “She’s doing her job, you do yours.”

Update, 7:30 p.m. EST: Fox News released a statement calling Trump’s latest remarks “especially deplorable.” The release can be read in full below:

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.

Trump refusing to pay for New Mexico security and barricades — while trying to change the state from blue to red

Published

on

President Donald Trump thinks he will win New Mexico. He's repeated the factoid multiple times, including to a group of oil and gas workers and executives Wednesday at a conference in Pittsburgh, PA. But he also made two significant mistakes to put that support in jeopardy.

First, the president indicated he was building his "wall" on the border of Colorado, which is north of New Mexico. It would mean that New Mexico was now part of Mexico.

Second, it was reported by the Albuquerque Journal that their city is yet another one Trump's campaign is refusing to pay for security costs.

House investigators have "recent evidence" of witnesses working to coordinate their testimony before Congress, a Democratic congressman revealed on MSNBC on Wednesday.

Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), who sits on the Intelligence and Judicial committees, was interviewed by MSNBC Chris Hayes.

"Final question, what is the timeline here?" Hayes asked. "There is some transparency argument that at some point this can’t be behind closed doors, the American people, all of us, Republicans, Democrats, citizens and journalists have to hear what’s happening."

"You’re absolutely right and there will be a public phase," Swalwell replied.

Published

on

On Wednesday, CNN reported that President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani is looking for a defense attorney to represent him.

This report comes after Giuliani said last week that he would not seek legal representation unless he believed he needed it.

Giuliani is currently under criminal investigation for the scheme he apparently helped facilitate in the Ukraine, where Trump withheld military aid in the fight against Russia while demanding their leaders investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and the Democratic National Committee.
