Donald Trump unleashed hell on Twitter after his performance in the first Republican Presidential Debate. The main target of his wrath of debate moderator Megyn Kelly of Fox News, who repeatedly challenged the businessman over his past controversial comments and political stances. His most controversial slam, however, came when he passively-aggressively retweeted someone’s comment that Megyn Kelly was a “bimbo.”
Trump did not perform well during the debate, and was heavily booed several times, most notably at the beginning of the debate, when he refused to pledge to support the Republican nominee regardless of who it is, or not to run a third-party candidacy if he was not the nominee. Kelly’s questioning of Trump was tough, and at one point, Trump made his displeasure with her clear. Kelly later said she expected to get an angry tweet from Trump.
She didn’t have to wait long.
Shortly after the debate ended, Trump tweeted dozens of times, making direct statements and retweeting comments posted by others. Trump tweeted of Kelly “She is totally overrated and angry. She really bombed tonite.” Trump then retweeted @timjcam, who called Kelly a bimbo:
Trump also took aim at pollster Frank Luntz, calling him a “low class slob.” Luntz hosted a focus group on Fox News after the debate that was heavily critical of Trump.
