Donald Trump: Megyn Kelly Probably Took Vacation Because of Me

Donald Trump thinks Megyn Kelly‘s vacation could very well be because of his feud with her over her “inappropriate” questions at the first Republican primary debate.

Kelly asked famously tough questions of Trump during the televised debate, and several days later the real estate mogul made his infamous comment to CNN that she had “blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her… wherever.” Fox News CEO Roger Ailes and Trump eventually had a phone call to “clear the air.”

On Wednesday evening, Kelly told her Kelly File viewers that she will take a long overdue 10-day vacation to spend some time with her husband and children.

Newsmax TV host Steve Malzberg asked Trump on Friday afternoon: “Do you think there was any connection to have her go away for a while in the wake of what she did?”

The GOP candidate replied: “Well, there probably was, but I wouldn’t know anything about it.” But he added: “People were very surprised that, all the sudden, she decided to go away for 10 days… Some people make those quick decisions.”

Contrary to that, however, a Fox News representative told Mediaite on Thursday that Kelly’s vacation had been planned long in advance. Nevertheless, Trump said he hopes “she is well” and that she returns to be “fair,” presumably to him.

Asked about Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace‘s suggestion that Trump had turned down an interview in favor of Meet the Press, the mogul responded: “I didn’t think that the tone that Chris [Wallace] asked the [debate] question was appropriate… I was a little bit insulted.”

And as Trump is wont to do, he noted that “I was a very good friend of Mike Wallace,” referring to Chris’ late father who was a legendary broadcaster. “In fact, Mike did me on 60 Minutes.”
