Trump Calls Megyn Kelly a ‘bimbo’ for GQ photo shoot
Donald Trump continued his onslaught on Fox News host Megyn Kelly on Thursday, retweeting a follower who criticized a photo shoot she did for GQ Magazine.
“And this is the bimbo that’s asking presidential questions?”, the tweet said. It included two photos of Kelly posing provocatively and the following text: “Criticizes Trump for objectifying women … Poses like this in GQ Magazine.”

Trump’s ongoing feud with Kelly was one of the reasons behind Trump’s decision to hold a competing event in Des Moines on Thursday night, though he now maintains that a mocking Fox statement was what ultimately drove him out of the debate:
It was the childishly written & taunting PR statement by Fox that made me not do the debate, more so than lightweight reporter, @megynkelly.

On Wednesday, Trump went after Kelly during an interview with Fox News host Bill O’Reilly, reiterating his view that she was biased against him and vowing not to be “taken advantage of” by the network.
