While Donald Trump himself was civil toward Fox’s Megyn Kelly on Thursday — even in the face of a tough question regarding the Trump University online education company — his supporters were not as kind.
The Republican front-runner’s backers anger stemmed from this exchange between Trump and the Kelly File host, when she
“said that the plaintiffs against you are like the [Bernie] Madoff victims. They found that ‘victims of con artists often sing praises of their victimizers until the moment moment they realize they’ve been fleeced.”
“Let’s see what happens in court,” Trump replied, calling the class-action suit against him “very easy to have settled.”
Trump did not lash out against Kelly, but as seen below, his backers on Twitter did not show the same kind of tact.
If Trump doesn't know how to hold himself together then idk who does… I would've already jumped the podium and slapped M. Kelly

Megyn Kelly sucks. She's biased and bent on unfair gotcha questions to Trump. she's carrying on a vendetta. She belongs on MSNBC.

Honestly, Kelly shouldn't be moderator for any debate involving Trump. Both have too much bad blood. Mods are neutral #bwoodapgovADVERTISEMENT

Ocasio-Cortez: ‘We’re going to fight to repeal the Hyde Amendment’
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) started a petition Saturday seeking to repeal the Hyde Amendment, which bars the use of federal funds for abortions, arguing the restriction overwhelmingly harms low-income Americans and women of color. AOC emailed her supporters:
“Since 1976, our government has banned federal funding for abortion care — specifically, for Medicaid recipients. Countless studies have shown that due to this amendment, millions of women have been forced to go through with pregnancies that, given the funding, they would have otherwise terminated. "
Florida man’s own family blasts him after he was arrested for racist threats: ‘This isn’t how we were raised’
After a Florida man was arrested for trying to start a race war, a member of his own family slammed his values.
"A Florida man’s social media posts that threatened violence against African-Americans, Jews and homosexuals and that urged his followers to start a race war netted him a $1 million bond," the Miami Herald reported Saturday. "And then there’s another $100,000 bond he would have to pay to get out of Lee County Jail because of a weapons charge."
Joshua Leff, 40, is being held in the Lee County Jail.
‘Weakness doesn’t win elections’: Indivisible co-founder explains why members are holding #ImpeachTrump rallies
The growing support to commence impeachment proceedings by House Democrats is driven by their need to fire up grassroots support to hold control of the chamber, an Indivisible co-founder explained on MSNBC.
"The call for impeachment continues. this as protesters are hitting the street in more than 140 rallies planned across the country. Organizers say the "Impeach Trump" event is a day of action urging House Democrats to start impeachment proceedings," MSNBC's Richard Lui reported Saturday.
"A new survey from the indivisible project finds 80 percent of their respondents say the House should start impeachment proceedings," he noted. "Right now in the House, 63 Democrats and one Republican support impeachment."
