The showdown swirling around Megyn Kelly and Donald Trump’s ongoing feud is only heating up after a steady stream of Fox News‘ hosts — including some of the networks’ prime-time stars — took to Twitter to defend Kelly.
Bill Hemmer who co-anchored “America’s Newsroom” with Kelly simply warned, “Easy, Mr. Trump” on Monday.
The usually chipper meteorologist, Janice Dean, took a more direct approach, calling Trump’s antics “unpresidential” with a note that read “This needs to stop.”
Easy, Mr. Trump. http://t.co/NhSd8KqeH4

Host of “Special Report” Bret Baier echoed Dean’s sentiment.
It’s been 19 days since the debate- @realDonaldTrump has made his feelings clear. But THIS needs to stop http://t.co/8BmVPZTGdp #let-it-go

All anchors cited the Trump online tirade that took place Monday night after Megyn Kelly returned from vacation to host “The Kelly File.” Trump, still mad over the way he was treated at the Republican debates – by Kelly in particular – unleashed a series of disparaging tweets against the popular Fox News show host.
Apparently, a quickly growing number of Kelly’s co-workers are becoming weary of Trump’s antics.
Sean Hannity is perhaps the biggest Fox personality to come out in defense of Kelly, even though he has been complimentary toward Trump in the past.
My friend @realDonaldTrump has captured the imagination of many. Focus on Hillary, Putin, border, jobs, Iran China & leave @megynkelly alone

Andy Levy of Fox’s late night show “Red Eye” and Fox contributor, Guy Benson, also got in on the action.

Donald Trump owns some of the priciest real estate in all of Manhattan, yet @megynkelly is living rent-free in his head.

The tweets backing Kelly only ignited the rift between Trump supporters and detractors, and the online squabble took on a life of its own:
Congrats Sean @seanhannity!! With this Tweet, now all of the @FoxNews anchors have gotten me to quit watching. @realDonaldTrump @megynkelly

@opedanderson Why’s he still attacking her? Calliing her a bimbo? Saying she looks like Nancy Grace? It’s misogyny. @megynkelly @JaniceDean

@Vote4Larsen @JaniceDean @megynkelly @nypost @realDonaldTrump Pointing out facts isn’t an attack, moron.

@JaniceDean Read the FB post about Megyn and I wish every woman had a friend as loyal and caring as you are to Megyn. You rock JD! #FoxNews

@andylevy Shut up Andy. Trump knows you’re a Mexican & he’ll put you on the list of priority deportations. Stop while there’s still time.

@Lynne_Shine @BillHemmer @realDonaldTrump @megynkelly. Trump will do more for women if he is elected

@BillHemmer “Easy, Mr. Trump”? Seriously? How about “Stop being a misogynist ahole, Mr. Trump”?
— Dave Shannon (@DavidWShannon) August 25, 2015
@BillHemmer Trump should go on her show. Megyn will destroy him. He wouldn’t be attacking her unless he was scared of her.

Now that would be great for ratings. Not that Kelly needs a boost, but Fox could sell pay-per-view tickets to see Trump interviewed on “The Kelly File.”
You can bet someone is working on it somewhere. But don’t hold your breath it will ever happen.
