Fox News throws up serious accusation against Trump campaign manager

Fox News released a brutal statement Tuesday reacting to the announcement from the Donald Trump campaign that he would be bowing out of the next Republican presidential debate.

“As many of our viewers know, FOX News is hosting a sanctioned debate in Des Moines, Iowa, on Thursday night, three days before the first votes of the 2016 election are cast in the Iowa Caucus. Donald Trump is refusing to debate seven of his fellow presidential candidates on stage that night, which is near unprecedented,” the statement read.

The network accused the campaign of leveling terroristic threats against debate moderator and Fox News host Megyn Kelly.

“We’re not sure how Iowans are going to feel about him walking away from them at the last minute, but it should be clear to the American public by now that this is rooted in one thing – Megyn Kelly, whom he has viciously attacked since August and has now spent four days demanding be removed from the debate stage. Capitulating to politicians’ ultimatums about a debate moderator violates all journalistic standards, as do threats, including the one leveled by Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski toward Megyn Kelly.

“In a call on Saturday with a FOX News executive, Lewandowski stated that Megyn had a ‘rough couple of days after that last debate’ and he ‘would hate to have her go through that again.’ Lewandowski was warned not to level any more threats, but he continued to do so. We can’t give in to terrorizations toward any of our employees,” the statement continued.

But even with all of that, the network said it would still allow the current Republican presidential front-runner to attend the debate.

“Trump is still welcome at Thursday night’s debate and will be treated fairly, just as he has been during his 132 appearances on FOX News & FOX Business, but he can’t dictate the moderators or the questions,” the network said.

  8. tsigili says:

    That’s the most outrageous pack of lies, I have ever heard. Fox News is making total fools of themselves, defending Kelly, who is nothing but an attack dog, bent on bringing down Trump, as her only purpose in the debate.

    Trump is now going to show Fox News, that he is smarter than they are, and a whole lot more capable than they are.

  9. LittleRoot_48 says:

    WHAT terroristic threats? They are making the word as credible as blacks have made the word “racism.”

    I would say, FOX needs to just give him a “Participation” trophy, and bid him ‘fare-thee-well’….!!! The man is a NYC Huckster!!!!
