Donald Trump Pulls Out Of FOX News GOP Debate

After some very entertaining comments thrown back and forth between Fox News and Donald Trump, the Trumpster has issued a statement saying he will definitely boycott Thursday night's GOP debate hosted by Fox News.

The statement reads, in part, "Unlike the very stupid, highly incompetent people running our country into the ground, Mr. Trump knows when to walk away."

The brouhaha centers around Trump's objection to Megyn Kelly taking part in the debate as one of the moderators. Trump maintains that he is not being treated "fairly."

Trump recently told CNN he was considering skipping the debate because he felt Kelly was biased against him.

If I think I'm going to be treated unfairly, I'd do something else. But I don't think she can treat me fairly, actually. I think she's very biased. And I don't think she can treat me fairly. But that doesn't mean I don't do the debates. I like doing the debate. I've won every single debate, according to every poll.

Fox News issued a statement saying, "Sooner or later Donald Trump, even if he's president, is going to have to learn that he doesn't get to pick the journalists — we're very surprised he's willing to show that much fear about being questioned by Megyn Kelly."

Last night, after Trump posted a Twitter poll asking whether he should or should not attend the debate (respondents were evenly split), Fox News served this dose of snark via Mediaite:

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.
