We all expect GOP candidates to get tough questions, but some feel Megyn Kelly attacked Trump in a personal way . For example, she asked Trump about his language towards women. It could have been a simple question, but Megyn felt the need to list every single name he has ever called a women. Did she really need to do that? She could have just said, “in the past, you have used offensive language during feuds with certain women”. She could have even brought up Rosie O’Donnell. But it seemed like her goal was for America to hear how he has spoke to women in the past, without the context no less.
Trump supporters were furious. They took to twitter to voice their outrage. One person ever threatened to “gut her”. Angry viewers blew up Megyn Kelly’s face book page as well. Many people said that before this debate they respected her, but not anymore.
Americans were so livid about her performance, there is now a petition started on Change.org to remove her from any future debates on Fox. The petition states:
Megyn Kelly finds the state of our union amusing and “fun”, whereas the viewers (our fellow citizens) deserve a much more serious moderator.
In addition, she had a clear agenda to attack Donald Trump, by tenaciously clinging to his past rather than his vision for the future. She focused on Trump personally, rather than politically. Ultimately, she did not not live up to the “fair and balanced” slogan at Fox News and News Corporation.
While her disdain for Mr. Trump was evident, this petition is a call for truly fair and balanced coverage of ALL candidates. Thus, Megyn Kelly should be barred from hosting or moderating all future Republican Presidential Debates.
Please support this position by signing it as well as adding your reasons to bar Megyn Kelly from hosting or moderating any future Republican Debates. She is better off hosting a Democrat debate at this unprofessional level.
The petition is being sent to Rupert Murdock and is near 54,000 signatures! I’m used to hearing complaints after a debate, but the outrage against Megyn Kelly is like nothing I have ever seen before. People are fired up!
Trump has already come out publicly and reamed Kelly for targeting him. In a CNN interview, he tells Don Lemon that he has no respect for Kelly and she is overrated. He said that he could see that there was ” blood coming out of her eyes”.
It just goes to show you, if you mess with Trump, be prepared for the hell you are going to get in return. Because if he doesn’t attack you right back, his supporters clearly will.
