Donald Trump and Megyn Kelly feud: She won't apologize for "doing good journalism"
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 08/11/2015
If Donald Trump expects an apology from Megyn Kelly for allegedly being hard on him during last week's GOP debate, he's going to be very disappointed.
After Kelly pressed the Republican presidential candidate with tough questions about "the war on women," according toUs Weekly, Trump deemed Kelly's approach at moderating "unfair" and personal. He also said in post-debate interviews Kelly had "blood coming out of her eyes" or "wherever," a remark people found sexist and offensive until he later insisted he was referring to Kelly's nose.
"I felt he was asked a tough but fair question. We agree to disagree," Kelly, 44, said on Monday's episode of The Kelly File.
"I've decided not to respond [to those comments]. Mr. Trump is an interesting man who has captured the attention of the electorate. That's why he's leading in the polls. Trump, who is the frontrunner, will not apologize, and I certainly will not apologize for doing good journalism. So I'll continue doing my job without fear or favor. And Mr. Trump, I expect, will continue with what has been a successful campaign thus far."
Kelly, a Fox News reporter, apparently doesn't want viewers to harp on the controversial subject.
"This is a tough business, and it's time now to move forward," Kelly said, Us reported. "And now, letâ€™s get back to the news."
During the GOP debate, Kelly asked Trump, 69, to address whether a good candidate for president is someone who's called women "pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals." She also pointed out how he once said on The Celebrity Apprentice it would be a "pretty picture" to see a female contestant on her knees.
