The burning question of whether Donald Trump would attend Thursday night’s Fox News/Google debate, moderated in part by Fox News host Megyn Kelly, was settled by his campaign manager, who confirmed that Trump would “definitely not” be participating.

Kelly, on the other hand, confirmed that she would be at the debate as a moderator, kicking off Tuesday night’s “Kelly File” with a recap of the day’s back-and-forth between Trump and Fox News. She also at one point topped Twitter’s list of trending topics and has hovered there ever since.

And so the debate escalates on Twitter: is Trump afraid to face Kelly, or is she the next Candy Crowley and truly biased against him?

Trump has promised to hold his own event which will benefit veterans. A smart move?

    So you’re saying all you need to assess intelligence is a picture?
    Congratulations; even the outright open bigots I know aren’t that stupid.

    You’re bravely exploring new depths of bigotry and idiocy…
    Let us know what you find when you’re down there.

    No, you either stand with 2012 election Trump; who wanted to run AND moderate a debate… and said people complaining about a partisan moderator “lacked courage”.

    OR you agree with 2016 election Trump; who says a partisan moderator is unacceptable and nobody should ever show…
    And seems to have brain damage causing him to forget his own efforts during the last Presidential election entirely.

    Do you support Trump of last Presidential election; trying to be referee AND player?
    Or Trump this year; too clueless to recall what he did last Presidential election?

    Donald Trump and Megyn Kelly… sharing a laugh.

    Added bonus:
    Donald telling her how great a moderator she is for GOP debates.

    you can’t have a “moderator is star” debate.

    Which is why in 2011 Newsmax went with a serious reporter.
    That reporter?
    Prospective Independent candidate AND reality TV star DONALD TRUMP!

    Of course a lot of candidates balked at having a prospective candidate moderate a debate.
    To which Trump replied “You lack courage”.

    This is like that philosophical conundrum I learned in college.
    “Does God do good because it’s good, or is it simply good because God does it?”

    But, you know, Trump not God. Assuming you’re not such a Trump supporter than you can still see a difference.

    Either way, got an answer?

    When danger reared its ugly head
    He bravely turned his tail and fled

    Yes, brave Sir Robin turned about
    And gallantly he chickened out

    Bravely taking to his feet
    He beat a very brave retreat

    Bravest of the brave, Sir Robin!

    I missed the movie; but I’m assuming Sir Robin was the hero?
    With heroic action like that, how could he not be?
