After Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump threatened to skip the next Fox News debate if host Megyn Kelly treats him “unfairly,” the network fired back, saying Tuesday in a tongue-in-cheek statement that the former reality TV star would stack his Cabinet with Twitter users.
Trump tried to reignite his one-sided feud with Kelly, saying of the debate moderator: “I don’t like her. She doesn’t treat me fairly. I’m not a big fan of hers at all…If I think I’m going to be treated unfairly, I’ll do something else.”
A Fox News spokesperson skewered Trump’s complaints about fairness in a statement provided to TPM, which said world leaders certainly won’t play by his rules if he becomes President.
Here’s the full statement:
We learned from a secret back channel that the Ayatollah and Putin both intend to treat Donald Trump unfairly when they meet with him if he becomes president — a nefarious source tells us that Trump has his own secret plan to replace the Cabinet with his Twitter followers to see if he should even go to those meetings.
