CLEVELAND (CBSDC/AP) — Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump went on a Twitter rant against Fox News’ Megyn Kelly and pollster Frank Luntz following Thursday night’s GOP presidential debate.
Kelly and Trump mixed it up when she asked Trump about his calling “women you don’t like ‘fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals.'”
Trump didn’t deny it. And when Kelly was undeterred by his attempt to laugh off her question with a joke about comedian Rosie O’Donnell, he fired back.
“I don’t frankly have time for total political correctness,” Trump said. “And to be honest with you, this country doesn’t have time either.”
Overnight on Twitter, Trump said that Kelly “bombed” as a moderator.
“Wow, @megynkelly really bombed tonight. People are going wild on twitter! Funny to watch,” Trump tweeted.
Trump added that Kelly, along with moderators Bret Baier and Chris Wallace, were not very professional.
“I really enjoyed the debate tonight even though the @FoxNews trio, especially @megynkelly, was not very good or professional!” he stated.
Trump even retweeted a post that referred to Kelly as a “bimbo.”
The billionaire also lashed out at Luntz after getting a poor review from a focus group following the debate. Trump referred to Luntz as a “low-class snob” and a “joke.”
On “CBS This Morning” Friday, Luntz said he saw “total destruction of a candidacy” in Trump’s debate performance.
