Fox News accused Donald Trump of having a “sick obsession” with Megyn Kelly after the GOP frontrunner blasted out a tweet calling for a boycott of her news show, The Kelly File.
“Donald Trump’s vitriolic attacks against Megyn Kelly and his extreme, sick obsession with her is beneath the dignity of a presidential candidate who wants to occupy the highest office in the land,” Fox spokeswoman Irena Briganti said in a statement issued Friday night.
“Megyn is an exemplary journalist and one of the leading anchors in America — we’re extremely proud of her phenomenal work and continue to fully support her throughout every day of Trump’s endless barrage of crude and sexist verbal assaults. As the mother of three young children, with a successful law career and the second highest rated show in cable news, it’s especially deplorable for her to be repeatedly abused just for doing her job.”
Trump’s tweet included some hard hitting words: “She is sick, and the most overrated person on TV.”
