Deplorable Donald Trump Calls Megyn Kelly ‘Sick’
Donald Trump continued his months-long attack on FOX News host Megyn Kelly on Friday, calling his fans to boycott her show because she’s “sick” and “overrated”.
The Republican front runner wrote on Twitter:
“Everybody should boycott the @megynkelly show. Never worth watching. Always a hit on Trump. She is sick [and] the most overrated person on TV.”
Everybody should boycott the @megynkelly show. Never worth watching. Always a hit on Trump! She is sick, & the most overrated person on tv.

After Trump made the remarks, FOX News has released a statement in Kelly’s defense, calling Trump “deplorable”:
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. 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.
