Donald Trump again poured gasoline on his feud between himself and Fox News’ Megyn Kelly on Friday calling for a boycott of her show because “she is sick.”

Trump tweeted, “Everybody should boycott the @megynkelly show. Never worth watching. Always a hit on Trump! She is sick, & the most overrated person on tv.”

Yesterday, Trump tweeted, “Highly overrated & crazy @megynkelly is always complaining about Trump and yet she devotes her shows to me. Focus on others Megyn!”

Fox News responded to Trump’s latest attack saying, “Donald Trump’s vitriolic attacks against Megyn Kelly and his extreme, sick obsession with her is beneath the dignity of a presidential candidate who wants to occupy the highest office in the land,” a Fox News spokesperson told The Daily Caller. “Megyn is an exemplary journalist and one of the leading anchors in America — we’re extremely proud of her phenomenal work and continue to fully support her throughout every day of Trump’s endless barrage of crude and sexist verbal assaults. As the mother of three young children, with a successful law career and the second highest rated show in cable news, it’s especially deplorable for her to be repeatedly abused just for doing her job.”

Earlier this week, Trump called Kelly “crazy Megyn” on Twitter and backed out of a scheduled debate set for Monday. (RELATED: Fox News Cancels Debate After Trump, Kasich Bail)
