GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump is seeing red.
In a 31-minute telephone interview Friday night on “CNN Tonight,” host Don Lemon asked Trump if he thought Fox News had an “agenda” to “target him.”
“Well, probably. I don’t know. Probably. Who cares. I don’t really care. I mean, I do my thing, and whatever it is. I’m leading in all the polls. So, hey probably have an agenda. I’m very disappointed in Fox News. … I think they probably had an agenda. But, certainly, I don’t have a lot of respect for Megyn Kelly, she’s a lightweight. And she came out there reading her little script, and trying to be tough and be sharp. And when you meet her, you realize she’s not very tough, and she’s not very sharp. She’s zippo,” he said.
“She gets out, and she starts asking me all sorts of ridiculous questions. And you know, you can see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever, but she was, in my opinion, she was off base. And by the way, not in my opinion, in the opinion of hundreds of thousands of people on Twitter. Because it has been a brutal day. In one way, a great day for Fox. In another day, in the Twittersphere, it’s been very bad, because she’s been very badly criticized. She’s a lightweight. I couldn’t care less about her.”
Trump was asked about some of the derogatory tweets he’d made about Kelly.
“She’s is able to take care of herself. She’s somebody that’s, pretty tough, and I’m sure she can take care of herself. But, you know she’s just somebody I don’t have a lot of respect for. I don’t think she’s got major talent. I don’t think she’s got very much talent at all. I mean, she’s sitting there, reading questions. She rehearsed for it for a long time.”
Trump added that “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace had “blood pouring out of his eyes, too.”
