Trump Trolls ‘Terrible’ Megyn Kelly Again, RT’s Someone Calling Her a Bimbo

Remember how Donald Trump attacked Megyn Kelly because she dared to ask him tough questions during a presidential debate and how annoying it was? Well, he’s at it again!

Yes, on Kelly’s first day back from her pre-planned vacation tonight, Trump trolled her on Twitter again with lots of attacks, including a retweet taking a snide shot at Kelly’s appearance and another retweet calling her a bimbo:

And guess what? This isn’t even the first time Trump’s retweeted someone calling Kelly a bimbo.

Kelly took her vacation days after the debate, which Fox told Mediaite was planned well beforehand, but Trump stirred the pot and said it probably had to do with him. Fox responded with another statement to Mediaite that’s worth posting here in full:

“The conspiracy theories about Megyn Kelly’s vacation rank up there with UFO’s, the moon landing and Elvis being alive. Megyn is on a pre-planned, annual summer vacation with her family, which is much deserved. To imply otherwise as Donald Trump and his campaign operatives have is not only wildly irresponsible, but downright bizarre. Perhaps Mr. Trump thinks it’s advantageous to his poll numbers to keep talking about Megyn, but that doesn’t change the fact that Roger Ailes has fully supported her and her tough journalistic questioning since day one and is thrilled with the added exposure from the debate which resulted in even higher ratings of The Kelly File this week. Anyone who knows Roger is aware of how historically and consistently loyal he is to all of his talent and how he protects them at all costs. As Governor Terry Branstad said today, ‘when you’re a candidate, you’ve got to basically answer the questions. You can’t just attack the person asking the questions. That doesn’t work.'”

Update- 8/25, 6:44 pm EST: Since sending out those tweets, Fox Newsers have bashed Trump (some more ardently than others) and Roger Ailes personally called for an apology.
