The gloves are off in Fox News's battle with Donald Trump. The Republican presidential frontrunner has repeatedly threatened to boycott the network's Thursday debate because of his long-standing feud with scheduled co-moderator Megyn Kelly. On Tuesday, Trump tweeted a poll to his millions of followers asking them if he should attend the final debate before next week's Iowa caucuses; and then posted an Instagram video lambasting Kelly as "unfair" to him.
In response, via Mediaite, Fox News snarked back: "We learned from a secret back channel that the Ayatollah and Putin both intend to treat Donald Trump unfairly when they meet with him if he becomes president — a nefarious source tells us that Trump has his own secret plan to replace the Cabinet with his Twitter followers to see if he should even go to those meetings." Burn.
