Following the first Republican presidential debate on Thursday night, Donald Trump lamented that the Fox News hosts were tough on him, especially Megyn Kelly.

“The questions to me were far tougher, and that I — supposedly, according to what everyone’s telling me, I won the debate, according to the call-ins and everything,” he told reporters after the debate, according to Buzzfeed News. “But the questions to me were not nice, I didn’t think they were appropriate, and I think Megyn behaved very badly personally.”

He told reporters that his experience at the debate wasn’t worth calling Fox News boss Roger Ailes over, but he insisted that the moderators were particularly tough on him.

“They weren’t even questions, they were statements that they asked,” he said, according to Buzzfeed News.

He added that Kelly’s question about comments he has made to women was “unfair.” And he lashed out at Kelly on Twitter following the debate.

He also retweeted several tweets about Megyn Kelly, one of which called her a “bimbo.”

Friday morning on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Trump continued to criticize Kelly’s line of questioning.

He said that if the Fox moderators were going to be tough on him, they should have hit all of the candidates with hard questions.

“I walked out of that room and people were saying that was really unfair,” Trump told “Morning Joe” over the phone.

He said that he was “very surprised at Fox News,” but said that he “will live with it.”
