Is the great, powerful Donald Trump shaking and scared of Fox News reporter Megyn Kelly? The Internet wasted no time creating hilarious memes tweets bashing Trump for backing out of the GOP debate. Click through to see them!
Donald Trump, 69, is so frightened of facing off against his nemesis, Megyn Kelly, 45, at the GOP debate on January 28, that he’s not showing up at all! Trump announced that he would be skipping the Fox News and Google-hosted event, moderated by Megyn, and voiced his displeasure about their choice of moderator. Everyone knows how well their last face-off went! Naturally the people of the Internet are having a field day with this! Click through to see the hilarious tweets!
Sure, Trump hasn’t outright said that the reason he’s ducking out of one of the most important events in a presidential candidate’s campaign is because he’s afraid of Megyn making him look dumb, but it’s very heavily implied. His campaign has said that there it’s a done deal; Trump will not be participating in the event, but instead holding a fundraising event in Des Moines, Iowa for Wounded Warriors — probably on another network, his campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, said. Many, many people think the entire situation is funny; why is somebody who has vowed and threatened endlessly that he’ll never back down against the likes of ISIS be afraid of Megyn?
Rumor has it: fearless presidential candidate Donald Trump is scared by only one thing — Putin might someday be replaced by Megyn Kelly.

The guy who's not afraid of Putin, the Chinese or ISIS remains terrified of Megyn Kelly. Any questions?

To keep annoying pests like rabbits or Trump away from your home, simply use a fake Megyn Kelly to scare them away. pic.twitter.com/p8vxHvKMgI

It’s all so good! Even Fox News couldn’t help themselves from jumping in on the insult train, after first vehemently defending their star reporter and anchor. “Megyn Kelly has no conflict of interest,” Fox News spokesperson Irena Briganti said. “Donald Trump is just trying to build up the audience for Thursday’s debate, for which we thank him.” A later statement from Fox News read: “We’re very surprised he’s willing to show that much fear about being questioned by Megyn Kelly.” Damn! This guy has the right idea, though:
The Trumpiest thing ever would be if Trump went after Trump for skipping the debate.
