Donald Trump is ramping up his criticism against the upcoming Fox News Republican debate and on of the moderators saying, “Megyn Kelly is really biased against me.”
In an Instagram video posted on Tuesday, Trump said, “Megyn Kelly’s really biased against me. She knows that. I know that. Everybody knows that. Do you really think she can be fair at a debate?” (RELATED: Donald Trump Reignites Drama With Megyn Kelly Ahead Of Fox News Debate)
Over the past few days, Trump has ignited a war of words directed towards Kelly, including threatening to boycott Thursday night’s debate. The real estate module has even stared a Twitter poll asking, “Should I got to the #GOPdebate?”

Fox News’s comments regarding Trump’s claims have consisted of:
- Megyn Kelly has no conflict of interest. Donald Trump is just trying to build up the audience for Thursday’s debate, for which we thank him.
- Sooner or later Donald Trump, even if he’s president, is going to have to learn that he doesn’t get to pick the journalists—we’re very surprised he’s willing to show that much fear about being questioned by Megyn Kelly.
On Thursday, Fox News will host the final GOP debate before the Iowa Caucuses on February 1. Kelly, Bret Baier and Chris Wallace are slated to moderate the debate.
UPDATE from a Fox News spokesperson:
“We learned from a secret back channel that the Ayatollah and Putin both intend to treat Donald Trump unfairly when they meet with him if he becomes president — a nefarious source tells us that Trump has his own secret plan to replace the Cabinet with his Twitter followers to see if he should even go to those meetings.”
