Former NBC host Megyn Kelly tore into ABC chief political analyst Matthew Dowd after Dowd sent a tweet wondering why Kelly and accused rapist Matt Lauer couldn’t just “fade away.”

Dowd, 58, was the chief strategist for President George W. Bush’s 2004 reelection campaign but has since largely denounced the Bush administration and is a vocal critic of President Trump.

The article goes on to state the following:

In a since-deleted tweet, he wrote, “I really don’t want to hear from either Matt Lauer or Megyn Kelly. Can’t they just fade away and enjoy their large pot of money?”

Dowd’s tweet elicited a reaction from Kelly, and a Twitter battle ensued:

Kelly: Yes, I could just sit back and ‘enjoy my money,’ @matthewjdowd, but instead I’ve chosen to speak up for women being harassed and abused who have been muzzled by NDAs. Sorry you find that so annoying.

Dowd: Megyn, i am all for that, and if you read my feed you would know that. However, did you stand up for Christine Blasey Ford, Anita Hill, and all the accusers of President Trump? Also, i know you are blasting NBC, but i don’t see you saying much about Fox.

Kelly: @matthewjdowd – umm, there is a whole movie about me standing up for the women at Fox. & I put Trump accusers on the air. Also my job as a reporter was not to “stand up” for Blasey-Ford. It was to report fairly on her w/o taking a side. You should try it sometime.

Dowd: Megyn, i wish you well. I would put my objectivity up against yours any day of the week. You worked at Fox News.

Kelly: I think the words you’re looking for are “I’m sorry, I was wrong.” Apology accepted!

Dowd: @megynkelly I deleted the original tweet. No matter how right I feel, it is not the loving way I want to be in this world. We have enough meanness and coarseness in the world today, I strive to do better each day. I do wish you well and hope we can heal instead of hurt.

Kelly: I am all for less meanness in the world. We’re good @matthewjdowd.
