Megyn Kelly: Donald Trump Doesn't Want Her Moderating Upcoming Republican Presidential Debate

Megyn Kelly of Fox's The Kelly File is set to moderate the upcoming Republican presidential debate alongside Chris Wallace and Bret Baier on January 28 in Iowa.

Donald Trump is not in favor of this. He tweeted out his opposition to Megyn Kelly's place as one of the moderators earlier on Saturday--just a couple of hours ago.

Donald Trump and Megyn Kelly have been at odds with one another since August when Megyn Kelly confronted Trump about comments he'd made against women in the past--calling them "fat pigs" and "slobs."

Not long afterward, during a conversation with Don Lemon on CNN, Donald Trump said Megyn Kelly had “blood coming out of her eyes” and “blood coming out of her whatever” which no doubt insinuated he was referring to her menstrual cycle.

Following his continued bashing of Megyn Kelly, Fox News chairman and CEO Roger Ailes came to her defense, calling Donald Trump's actions "unacceptable."

Trump later said only a "deviant" would think he was talking about Megyn Kelly's menstrual cycle. Even though he has toned down his talk to and regarding Kelly a bit, he still gets in digs whenever and wherever he can, and retweets anyone who talks negatively about Megyn Kelly or her show.

Clearly Donald Trump fears Megyn Kelly to some degree or he wouldn't have a problem with her serving as one of the moderators for next Thursday night's debate.

What do you think Donald Trump fears Megyn Kelly will ask that already has him on the defensive?
