Trump Uses Sexist Term to Describe Fox News Host

Donald Trump continued his war of words with Megyn Kelly on Wednesday, referring to the Fox News host as a “bimbo,” The Hill reported.

The Republican presidential front-runner has been at odds with Kelly since the first debate of the campaign last summer, when she listed some of the ugly terms he has used to denigrate women. Later that evening, Trump declared that Kelly “had blood coming of her wherever.”

This week, he announced he would not take part in the Jan. 28 debate on Fox News, partly because Kelly was scheduled to be one of the moderators.

“I refuse to call Megyn Kelly a bimbo, because that would not be politically correct,” Trump tweeted. “Instead, I will only call her a lightweight reporter!” During a news conference in Iowa on Tuesday, he called the news anchor a “third-rate reporter” and again accused her of being a “lightweight,” according to The Hill. Trump said that instead of attending the debate, he would hold a fundraising event for injured military veterans.

On her television program, Kelly stressed that she had no plans to relinquish her position at the debate. Fox News officials claimed Trump’s campaign manager had threatened Kelly. The network vowed that it will not back down because of the candidate’s “terrorizations.”
