Well, this is what hubris and political inexperience will get you ……. stupidity!

So, this happened ….

Ailes calls on Trump to apologize for ‘unprovoked attack’ on Megyn Kelly

Fox News CEO and Chairman Roger Ailes on Tuesday called for Donald Trump to apologize for his “unprovoked attack” against host Megyn Kelly, after the Republican presidential candidate made a series of disparaging comments about “The Kelly File” host on Twitter the previous evening

“Donald Trump rarely apologizes, although in this case, he should,” Ailes said in a statement. “We have never been deterred by politicians or anyone else attacking us for doing our job, much less allowed ourselves to be bullied by anyone and we’re certainly not going to start now.” 

Trump targeted Kelly after she asked him a number of tough questions during a Fox News-hosted debate by GOP presidential candidates on Aug. 6. A series of subsequent remarks by Trump led to a clear-the-air conversation with Ailes, and the candidate has since made a number of appearances on Fox News programs

But Trump renewed his attacks on Monday night, during Kelly’s show. In a series of tweets, Trump criticized Kelly’s handling of an interview segment on her show, claimed her just-concluded and long-planned summer vacation with her family was in fact unscheduled, and retweeted a tweet referring to her as a “bimbo.”

Trump issued a response later Tuesday afternoon, saying “I totally disagree with the Fox statement.” Trump also repeated his claims that Kelly’s questioning of him during the debate “was very unfair.” 

Some of Kelly’s Fox colleagues also came to her defense on Tuesday. Bret Baier, who moderated the debate with Kelly and Chris Wallace, tweeted that “this needs to stop.” Brian Kilmeade said on “Fox & Friends” that Trump’s comments bothered him personally.

“We are all friends with Donald Trump, but he is totally out of bounds reigniting that fight,” Kilmeade said. “I don’t know if he’s trying to get ratings out of that or poll numbers, but he’s not going to be successful.”

Fox News’ Sean Hannity also tweeted: “My friend @realDonaldTrump has captured the imagination of many. Focus on Hillary, Putin, border, jobs, Iran China & leave @megynkelly alone.”

The full Ailes statement reads as follows: 

“Donald Trump’s surprise and unprovoked attack on Megyn Kelly during her show last night is as unacceptable as it is disturbing. Megyn Kelly represents the very best of American journalism and all of us at FOX News Channel reject the crude and irresponsible attempts to suggest otherwise. I could not be more proud of Megyn for her professionalism and class in the face of all of Mr. Trump’s verbal assaults. Her questioning of Mr. Trump at the debate was tough but fair, and I fully support her as she continues to ask the probing and challenging questions that all presidential candidates may find difficult to answer. Donald Trump rarely apologizes, although in this case, he should. We have never been deterred by politicians or anyone else attacking us for doing our job, much less allowed ourselves to be bullied by anyone and we’re certainly not going to start now. All of our journalists will continue to report in the fair and balanced way that has made FOX News Channel the number one news network in the industry.”

Well, there’s that!  There’s so many aspects to this, I don’t really know where to begin.  But, I’ll start with this ….

Never pick a fight with people who buy ink by the barrel. —– Mark Twain

Now, the Donald may be confused here.  For conservatives such as I, we welcome anyone who would challenge the LSM.  I do consider Fox News as part of the LSM, but, an overwhelming majority of Republican voters do not.  Donnie, boy, you may wish to consider which side of your bread is buttered by whom. 

Look, people, the sad fact of the matter is, if you’re running for the Republican nomination, today, you need to have Fox News.  It shouldn’t be that way, but, it is.  Trump should know this.  Sure, he got a bump by expressing his dissatisfaction with the debate’s questions.  That’s because the questions were indeed directed at him.  But, how you properly respond is play it like a boss!  Which, he did, up until this point.  Trump and Ailes made up, and all was good.  But, we see Donnie boy still has some butthurt and he allowed his personal animosity rule his words and judgment.  It doesn’t look very presidential. 

Now, look at the personalities defending Megyn Kelly ….  Bret Baier, Chris Wallace, Brian Kilmeade, Sean Hannity, and most importantly, their boss, Roger Ailes.  That’s a fantastic collect of people you don’t want to have line up against you if you’re running for a Republican anything.  I remember watching Bret Baier years ago, thinking, ‘nice kid, but, that boy is never going to make it.’ He’s a nice guy who people trust.  At least, that’s the image he portrays, and he does it well.  Chris Wallace??????  Don’t piss that guy off!!!  Especially if you’re Donald Trump!  Trump has some many issues with his history I can’t name them all.  Chris Wallace knows all of it and much more than I do.  He was born in the beltway!  His dad was a high profile “journalist”.  With the skill and ability Chris has shown over the years, I’ve always been thankful he didn’t play like his dad, but, let’s not for a moment pretend he doesn’t know how.  And, then, Sean Hannity!!!!  WTF?  That’s Donald’s demographic!!!!  I promise you, the majority of Trump’s supporters watch Hannity with a regularity.  Don’t get me wrong, I like Hannity.  But, I didn’t watch much of him even when I had cable.  I usually liked his advocacy, but, his arguments are not cerebral enough for me.  I’m not calling Hannity or his viewers stupid, he and they are not, but, he skips steps in bringing the logical argument home.  They’re red meat eaters! 

But, that brings me to the last stated reason why Trump’s attack was stupid.

Okay, Donnie boy, you made your point.  You didn’t like the questions you were given at the debate, specifically from Mz. Kelly.  I didn’t like them, either. But, now, that’s besides the point.  Now, you’ve created a different point, and it’s a fail! 

Who, Donnie boy, are your supporters?  Well, they’re mostly conservative males.  Now, attacking an attractive woman won’t make a damn bit of difference with the beta-males of the left.  But, for meat-eating alpha-males, the instinct is to rush to the aid of a woman in distress.  It’s simply instinct.  If she’s pretty, then, the more powerful the instinct is.  Man!!!!  You have to understand this dynamic!  If you can’t understand this simple and basic human dynamic then you are unqualified to be president! 

Beta-males already hate you, alpha-males are fighting their instincts to attack you, most women voters are turned off by you, and you’re making enemies of the people most Repubs tune into to get their news.  And, you want the Repub nomination?  Good call, dumbass!  You should fire your political advisor …….. wait!!!!  You already did!  Moron!

    ..and the more he does it…the more I like it
    and the more the twisted lying new media makes out of it….the more I’m in his camp

    Don’t give all the credit to Trump….it’s the new media that’s playing it up and making a big deal out of it..Fox is showing their true colors

    then ask yourself how we got in the mess in the first place, who did we listen to

    • leftinflagstaff says:

      Yep. He knows the only reason he’s here is because of the way it was done before. And the millions who are sick of that.

  2. geran says:

    Trump was bound to out-trump himself at some point. That’s what he does best.

  3. Latitude says:

    did you notice you are quoting Fox news opinion…about Fox news

    “Trump targeted Kelly after she asked him a number of tough questions”….

    Oh really Fox?…how about Trump targeted Kelly after she implied, insinuated, slimed, attacked…..

    Trump is not the rent boy Fox wants…If it was Clinton, Obama would be passing some law to get Fox off the air….which just makes my point again, democrats will elect any crazy nut job out there (Biden)…and republicans get all uppity that no one is good enough

    If you don’t think Trump is justified….think back on the things Obama, Clinton, Pelosi, Reid, and on have said…and got a free pass

    Trumps fine, he’s being Trump….would be prefer he be’s Bush? Christie? Graham? Huckabee?

    …I certainly don’t, it’s nice to see a republican with testosterone for a change, I didn’t think there were any

    • geran says:

      “I certainly don’t, it’s nice to see a republican with testosterone for a change, I didn’t think there were any”
      _____________
      And, I fully agree. Hopefully Trump will set an example for those Conservatives that are afraid to speak the truth.

      But, we need “character” in the White House. We need someone that will not be working an anti-Bible, anti-Constitution agenda behind our backs. We need someone that will stand up against corruption and perversion.

      It really shouldn’t be asking for much, except these days….

    • suyts says:

      Lat, 100%, except, Trump’s not fine. He just shot himself in the foot! Yes, it’s Fox defending Fox. And, I’ve expressed many times what I think of Fox. But, the reality is if you want the Repub nomination in 2016 you’d better not piss off Fox in 2015.

      They won’t overtly go after him, (or maybe they will) and leave their “partners” …. Breitbart to give him a slide shot (casting shade) from time to time.

      I promise you, he won’t win this piss-fight.

      • Latitude says:

        We have the worst case of short term memory… LOL
        Obama even banned Fox for a while….everyone has forgotten that already

        By the time it’s time….everyone, including Fox will have forgotten this

        Fox will forget first, Trump brings them their highest ratings…
        ..Trump knows this and is working it

      • Latitude says:

        Just so we’re clear on the concept…..who’s side are they really on

        Cruz Accuses Megyn Kelly of Asking ‘Mainstream Media Liberal’ Question

        http://www.breitbart.com/video/2015/08/25/cruz-accuses-megyn-kelly-of-asking-mainstream-media-liberal-question/

      • Latitude says:

        I promise you, he won’t win this piss-fight.

        James, they are both winning, don’t you get it?
        As long as Fox can stir it up about Trump calling Kelly a bimbo…I mean come on … bimbo
        make a humongous deal about “bimbo”

        Fox’s ratings…and Kelly’s….will shoot through the roof as long as people tune in to watch this contrived crap..and Fox will continue to give Trump front page

      • Squid2112 says:

        Lat, I couldn’t agree with you more! …. right on!

        • Latitude says:

          Squid, the only interesting thing going on right now is how long can Fox claim that Kelly is this hard hitting strong emancipated women’s libber…..while at the same time saying she can’t cut it, is weak, needs special attention….because she’s a girrrelll

        • Squid2112 says:

          I believe Faux is going to lose this feud and lose it big. They have already lost my entire family. Megyn Kelly is a puppet, bought and paid for. The only show I am willing to watch on Faux anymore is Hannity.

  4. kim2ooo says:

    Seems to me… Mr. Trump is proving Ms. Kelly’s original question / statement?

    • kim2ooo says:


      “You’ve called women you don’t like ‘fat pigs, dogs, and disgusting animals.’ … how will you answer the charge from Hillary Clinton … likely to be the Democratic nominee, that you are part of the war on women?”

    • suyts says:

      Yeh, that’s what I was writing about. He’s managed the near impossible! Here’s an alternative to the establishment Repubs, he’s highlighted securing the border, and promotes American exceptionalism! He’s articulated his understanding that there’s a problem with “entitlements”. All the while, he’s managed to piss off some fine conservative women, as the left is convinced he’s engaged in the imagined “war on women”, as one of his opponents, seen as an outsider to the establishment Repubs is a woman. It is exceptionally stupid!

      • kim2ooo says:

        If he attacks Hillary… in the same crude manner…………………..

        He needs to attack their / her ideas / proposals / failures etc… not call her a “Bimbo” etc as he RT’d.

  5. Ted G says:

    Trump is a hero not just for Americans but anybody sick to death of PC and the stinkin status quo!
    PS. Fox, CNN …. need him badly!!!!!!!!

    • Squid2112 says:

      I completely agree, and Megyn Kelly and Faux News can kiss my rosey ass! … My wife and I were avid watchers of her program. We have not watched since the GOP debate (inquisition) and we likely will never again. Faux News is not broadcast on our televisions nearly as often as it used to be.

      Faux News: We Deceive, You Deride…

      • DirkH says:

        Well, Murdoch is a CFR member. CFR has chosen Hillary vs. Jeb. They always got their candidates in the past.
        I wouldn’t exclude a sudden heart attack for Trump *OR* Sanders if things don’t go as planned.

        • Squid2112 says:

          EXACTLY… ding ding ding .. we have a winner … This whole thing is about Hillary v. Bush … Hillary is likely out of the picture (hopefully in jail), queue Biden. But Biden can’t win a general election. So, what is left? .. they must nominate Bush to run or they won’t have one of “their” puppets in power. With Clinton v. Bush, they had a Win/Win … With Clinton v. Trump they have a win/lose .. at least they have 50% chance … without Hillary and without Bush it becomes lose/lose .. They (GOPe and Dem) are desperate now. They must get rid of Trump (and Cruz if he becomes a threat) and they gotta nominate Bush, or they establishment (either side) cannot win. Bush wins the general (or any Dem), then both GOPe and Dem win.

        • DirkH says:

          AFAIK Cruz isn’t even eligible – he’s Canadian. What has he to do in the field anyway?

        • squid2112 says:

          No, Dirk, he is a US Citizen and has already been cleared for eligibility. He was born in Canada to an American mother and a Cuban father. Upon his birth he was a dual citizen of Canada and the US. This year, prior to his run for president, he renounced his Canadian citizenship (as required by law) to become fully eligible (by law) for the presidential nomination. He has been cleared by Congressional committee to be eligible (just like McLame and others have done before him).

    Unrelated, but nice post about the Arctic and the “looming methane monster”:

    https://sunriseswansong.wordpress.com/2015/08/26/arctic-sea-ice-tundra-wonder-methane-blunder/

    that ends with some beutiful ice-flowers :), could not not post these:

  7. I absolutely love that Trump has called that BITCAH to heel. Holy hell, it’s about time. This has only amplified is support amongst males. You got this completely wrong WK.

    • suyts says:

      Feministhater, sorry about your wait in moderation. You’re welcome to comment now, freely, without moderation. The great thing about this blog is that I can be wrong! But, in this case, I’m not. The tell will tale.

  8. Squid2112 says:

    You are not suggesting the Donald Trump is a moron for fighting with Megyn Kelly, but Ted Cruz isn’t, are you? .. Because Ted Cruz just had virtually the very same exchange with Megyn Kelly as well, and now of course he too is being bashed.

    I’m sorry to criticize you James, but you’re blasting at the entirely wrong person on this. It is Megyn Kelly and her establishment GOP handlers that are completely at fault here. They will stop at nothing to try to ensure a Jeb Bush nominee, no matter how dirty it gets.

    • Latitude says:

      ok, mark my words…..sometime in the near future Fox is going to do a complete 180 on Trump….I think they have figured it out already….Trump is the best thing going for their ratings

      • Squid2112 says:

        I agree that Trump is great for their ratings, but I am not so sure about them turning a 180. I hope so. We shall see. For me, I am with Trump in his words “as long as the treat me fairly” .. and that is all I want to see as well .. just what Faux’s moto says “fair and balanced” … that’s all that I ask.

    • suyts says:

      Squid, look at how different the reactions of Cruz and Trump are away from the interview. And, yes, I entirely agree, the problem is with Kelly, but, Trump is running for president. To actually win the presidency, one has to typically have more than 50% of the vote. I think it’s a bad move politically. Is it good for ratings? Absolutely. But, in politics, there is such a thing as bad publicity.

      • Squid2112 says:

        Perhaps you are right .. but from where I am sitting, the more Trump bashes these turds in media, the more I like him and the more I am willing to support him. The feel I get from just about everyone I know, is the same. So at this point, I don’t believe this is hurting Trump, and perhaps quite to the contrary. There’s still a lot of game yet to be played. We’ve only just tee’d off on the second hole! .. Let’s see what the round will give.

        I literally don’t see our country surviving another “politician” in power. I’m not so sure it is even possible to save it at this point in any case. But if it is, it is not going to come from anyone connected to the “establishment”, no matter the party, that you can be assured.

  9. DirkH says:

    I think the game works like this.
    Trump’s task is to stand for sensible politics like protecting the border, balance the budget, stop idiotic wars, maybe even destroy PP.
    His task is ALSO to alienate all voter groups one by one. He’s already through wymens and Hispanics and will work his way through the rest.

    This way the regime manages to associate sensible politics with a guy who behaves like an asshole.

    Ergo – in comes Jeb or Hillary being very polite to everyone while standing for perfectly destructive policies, and the populace will love it enough to vote for it.

    Trump will get some lucrative deals or a truckload of Dollars for it.

    • Latitude says:

      Dirk, I couldn’t disagree more
      I think you’ve fallen for the game too….only it’s not the game you think it is

      • DirkH says:

        Lat, imagine you’re the CFR and you’re used to choosing the next president. Now what do you do when your 2 favorites are your reliable known numpties and you know you can’t sell that to the public anymore. And every day brings out a new Hillary scandal. You have to be ingenious.

        The plan might also be to have Trump jump the GOP ship, run as 3rd party and split the GOP vote to get Hillary in.

        • Lars P. says:

          lol, perfect, In the end they might get Deez in – law of unintended consequences.
          Now I would 100 times more likely vote him if I need to chose between Hillary, Jeb and Deez, but ok I do not vote there:
          http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-08-26/why-deez-nuts-actually-critically-important-future-country

        • DirkH says:

          Author lost me when he said “culture jamming at the highest level”.

        • Latitude says:

          Dirk, Trump wants to win…he probably will
          Trump has called everyone a name at some point…that’s his most endearing quality..it’s never been a big deal….it didn’t matter to Fox until they saw their ratings
          Fox is going to stir it up..until it becomes too obvious…then they are going to do a 180 and it’s going to be Trump news 24/7

          Face it….Trump is news…no matter where he goes their ratings jump….Fox is not going to loose that to CNN, NBC, etc

          Women, men, minorities, all of them….want to vote for a man…..Obama won by calling people names..and running against a bunch of emasculated men…hell, Palin had more testosterone than McCain and the Ken doll put together
          Clinton will not get the woman vote, the kid vote, the Mexican vote….she won’t even get the black vote….where we run the risk is the independent/republicans that do not vote…it’s the lack of men running that’s turned them off….they will turn out for a man

        • Squid2112 says:

          Boy Latitude, you make some really good points…

        • Latitude says:

          thanks..so do you….Trump is a man and not an appeasing establishment politician republican……exactly what we’ve all said we wanted

          I mean all of us

    • Lars P. says:

      Oww Dirk, how can you imagine so much perfidy in this world!!?
      Ahem, actually yes, thinking a bit, yes, there is even more perfidy in this world…
