Trump Retweets Comment Calling Fox’s Megyn Kelly ‘A Mean & Bitter Woman’

Donald Trump just can’t stop criticizing Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly. On Monday morning, he retweeted a post from a supporter calling Kelly “a mean & bitter woman.”

Trump’s attacks on Kelly date back to the first Republican debate in August, when she pushed him to defend his many critical comments about women. In response to Kelly’s question about the GOP candidate’s habit of referring to women as “fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals,” Trump joked “Only Rosie O’Donnell.”

Trump later came under fire for suggesting that Kelly’s tough questions for him were due to “blood coming out of her wherever,” which many said was a not-so-subtle reference to her menstrual cycle. He refused to apologize, telling Politico he doesn’t think Kelly is a “quality journalist.” After a prolonged back-and-forth with Fox News higher-ups, including Chairman Roger Ailes, who came to Kelly’s defense, Trump made nice with the network at the end of August.

This tweet seems to threaten their tentative truce.
