Fox News host Megyn Kelly got into a heated debate Wednesday with presidential candidate attention whore Donald Trump over his statements blaming the “Draw Muhammad” event organizer Pam Geller for the attack by two radical Muslims.

KELLY: Let’s talk about free speech because after that Pam Geller event down in Garland, Texas, where they were attacked and the two would-be jihadis were shot dead by the police force, you also sent out tweets saying, ‘Why taunt in order to provoke possible death? Dumb.’

TRUMP: I think Pam Geller is a terrible messenger. I think she’s terrible. we have enough problem without taunting and driving everybody crazy.

KELLY: But my question to you is, because this turned into a bigger thing, like what do we stand for as Americans if not for freedom of speech and ability to express yourself? And this speech in particular which was in defiance– it’s like the cartoon that won the contest. It had Muhammad standing there saying, ‘You can’t draw me,’ and the person looking up to him saying, ‘That’s why I draw you.’

It was about people trying to shut down an American ideal and this group, however unsympathetic they may have been, saying we reject that attempt.

TRUMP: They were totally unsympathetic. Now, you look at Muhammad and some of the positions they have Muhammad and some people are going to get extremely upset about it. Now, I’m not the only one and I’m not the only conservative Republican that feels this way. And they’re lucky even to be alive.
