Donald Trump lashes out on Twitter following debate and attacks Megyn Kelly
UPI News Service, 08/07/2015
Donald Trump isn't taking to Fox political commentator Megyn Kelly well after Thursday night's Republican presidential debate.
When Kelly confronted Trump's history of sexist slurs, Trump eventually claimed that political correctness was the country's "issue," saying that he "frankly" doesn't have time for it.
The heavily controversial Republican candidate called into "Morning Joe" on Friday to call the exchange "unprofessional."
"If she feels that she wants to do it that way, that's OK with me," he said.
"But I just don't think it's very professional. I do say this, and I was listening to folks and Joe before, if you're going to do that to me, I think it's great. But you have to do it to everybody else -- or ease it up."
After the debate, Trump's Twitter feed began filling up with retweets of praises toward himself and disparaging comments toward mediator Kelly.
The billionaire even retweeted a particular message which called the Fox News personality a "bimbo."
"She is totally overrated and angry," Trump wrote.

"She really bombed tonite."
Trump also barreled down on Republican pollster Frank Luntz, who Business Insider reports conducted a focus group that gave him negative reviews after the debate.
"The Apprentice" creator called Luntz "a low class slob," and a "clown" via Twitter.
