GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump is striking back against Fox News host Megyn Kelly Friday morning after she largely depicted him as a sexist pig.
Ironically, he agreed with a Twitter follower who called Kelly a “bimbo.”
The first real question that Trump faced down Thursday night put him on the receiving end of a lot of estrogen.
“You’ve called women you don’t like, ‘fat pigs,’ ‘dogs,’ slobs, and disgusting animals,” Kelly began.
“Only Rosie O’Donnell,” Trump replied to gales of laughter in the Quicken Loans Arena press room.
But Friday morning, things aren’t quite so Rosy and Trump is letting his contempt for the unfair way he believes Kelly treated him all hang out.
During the debate Trump warned Kelly that he could go after her, too.
“What I say — and oftentimes it’s fun, it’s kidding, we have a good time — what I say is what I say,” he told her. “And honestly, Megyn, if you don’t like it, I’m sorry. I’ve been very nice to you, although I could probably maybe not be based on the way you have treated me. But I wouldn’t do that.”
Oh, but he would.
With this retweet, Trump all but endorses someone calling Kelly as a “bimbo.”

Trump also personally weighed in on Kelly.
“I really enjoyed the debate tonight even though the @FoxNews trio, especially @megynkelly, was not very good or professional!” he wrote on Twitter after the debate.
He also reveled in her so-called failure.
“Wow, @megynkelly really bombed tonight,” he wrote. “People are going wild on twitter! Funny to watch.”
But in the press room, things were more somber, as members of the Fourth Estate remarked that Kelly is not one to cross.
