Conservative Twitter Split Over Carly Fiorina’s Support for Megyn Kelly

Carly Fiorina took to Twitter to express her displeasure with Donald Trump‘s post-debate comments about Megyn Kelly‘s incessant “bleeding” on Friday night.

Others, however, throw their hats into the Trump-branded ring without fail:

Of course it wouldn’t be the bat sh*t-crazy end of Twitter without at least one conspiracy theorist in the mix:
