Donald Trump is responding to allegations made by Fox News host Megyn Kelly. The outspoken presidential candidate revealed in a recent Vanity Fair interview that Trump tried to “woo” her after announcing his presidential candidacy. However, Kelly said she couldn’t be bought with Trump’s compliments and press clippings. Although Kelly claims Trump went out of his way to gain her attention, Trump says it is entirely false and that he wouldn’t attempt to “woo” her because she is “average in every way.”
Megyn Kelly recently opened up for cover interview withVanity Fair. In the interview, Kelly discussed the first Republican presidential debate and her calling out of GOP frontrunner Donald Trump as “sexist.” During the debate, she asked Trump about calling women “fat pigs, slobs and disgusting animals.”
“You’ve called women you don’t like fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals…. You once told a contestant on Celebrity Apprentice it would be a pretty picture to see her on her knees. Does that sound to you like the temperament of a man we should elect as president, and how will you answer the charge from Hillary Clinton… that you are part of the war on women?”
Following the debate, Trump took to Twitter to lash out at Kelly for her “unfair” questions and for having an agenda against him. He made a controversial statement during a CNN Tonight interview following the debate in which he implied Kelly’s bad mood on stage may be due to the fact she was menstruating.
“You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever.”
The presidential hopeful also took to Twitter to voice his disdain for the type of questioning that was thrown at him in the debate that he deemed “unfair.”

Shortly after the comment, things seemed to quiet down between Trump and Kelly, who both said the “feud” was not a big deal and that they both had better things to do with their time. Trump even went so far as to praise Kelly for a segment that he said he “appreciated.”
“Actually, I watched her show Fox last night. She was very nice and I appreciated it.”
However, it seems that things are reigniting between Megyn Kelly and Donald Trump going into the next GOP debate slated for January 28, 2016, in which Kelly will once again be a moderator. The battle of words began again when Kelly claimed in the Vanity Fair interview that Donald Trump went to great lengths to attempt to “woo” her after he announced his presidential candidacy. She claims he sent her press clippings and praised her for segments of her show that he liked. However, Kelly said she couldn’t be wooed by the business mogul.
“I can’t be wooed. I was never going to love him, and I was never going to hate him.”
Trump is now responding to the claims that he attempted to “woo” Kelly and says it is entirely false, noting he would never try to “woo” the Fox News host because she is “average in every way.”
.@megynkelly recently said that she can’t be wooed by Trump. She is so average in every way, who the hell wants to woo her!
