Yesterday afternoon, Donald Trump threatened to boycott tomorrow’s FNC-hosted GOP debate. And as Twitchy told you, it appears that he’s making good on his promise.

But according to the man himself, Megyn Kelly‘s not the main reason for his refusal to participate in the debate — this is:

Glad that’s settled.

Or … not:

Well, in any event, Trump evidently isn’t boycotting Fox altogether:

Oh really?

    I just went googling, and you’re right, which means that the Rs (all of them) have mostly dealt with hostile moderators…and somehow, Trumpeters go after (repeatedly) the least hostile mod on the fairest/balanced network to either party. Trump’s a “Manchurian candidate” if there ever was one…not even the worst Rino ever tries to throw elections, yet I seriously think that’s what #ManchuriaDonny’s trying to do.

          I really PRAY we are mostly wrong about Trump, that he is what they think he is, but even if worst comes to worst, conservatives are no lifetime dupes like the die hard libloons. A Trump betrayal will not be the end of the Conservative Movement, as some of the more conniving libs I have argued with have gleefully suggested. It WILL be the end of the GOP, however. A Trump betrayal will be an unprecedented opportunity for a third party, or more, to TRULY take over. Trump likely will be relatively centrist, over all, but that is still to left for most conservatives. He will think that we will still have to vote for him in three years because someone even worse will be on the dem ticket. Bull. If Trump wins and betrays us, I am joining the Constitutionalists, and I think everyone will either join the Constitutionalists or the Libertarians, and, following our lead, the inevitably disenfranchised Berny supporters might be encouraged to follow our lead, and join the Green Party.
          So, bury the ‘Can next to its Wig father, cut off half the Dem body, leaving only the moderate half alive: voilà, a duopoly becomes a quadpoly. More choice, and extreme leftists bottled up 3-1 by more rational choices. Greens would continue to have strong local influences in places like Safran Sicko, but would never stand a chance at winning the Presidency. The humbled Dems might get one, once in a while, eventually, but for fifty years, at least, Constitutionalists and Libertarians will rule the presidency.
          This will only happen if Trump wins and screws us big. The GOP may yet redeem itself under one of the other Candidates. Further, it is obvious that the only way to break the perception that a third-party is a wasted vote is for a fourth-party to rise in equal prominence at the same time, at least, or have a fith replace an established party entirely. At any rate, four parties would even the odds and eliminate the “wast” perception. If a Constitutionalist was stealing as many votes from the Republicans as the Greens did from Dems, the net drain wouldn’t affect the Can/Dem numbers much. The alternatives wouldn’t win, not the first or second time, but so long as they did not unfairly effect the establishment, people could tentatively begin switching to third or fourth en mass. At least, that’s how it would have to happen if Trump doesn’t screw us.

          • DeplorableMessMan ✔ JesseMessy

            Great googly moogly, this BS about the “GOPe” (YAWn) was always incredible (as in literally “NOT credible”), but now the IndyCons are a laughingstock. Trump isn’t an “establishment” thing…Are you seriously saying that it’s the RNC who dumped Trump on us? That’s insane. It’s paranoid. It’s taken the whole fictitious RINO-boogeyman-narrative to a whole new level where this GOPe of yours (YAWn) is somehow a “Borg-collective” that controls every R who (by your definition of R) can’t think for him or herself. This isn’t the of the GOP…Not by a longshot…but if DT gets nominated, it’ll be the END of “indy-narcissist conservatism”. It’ll be the end of the paranoid GOPe-HOAx which IndyCons have used as an excuse for 20 years to THROW elections to Dems…and now you write an instruction-manual for how to bring down the ONLY ELECTABLE alternative-party, because…because why? Because you can’t get it that IT AIN’T THE PARTY who created this TrumpMonster…IT AIN’T THE PARTY that’s spent months trying to pass DT’s fanatical populism as “conservatism”. The GOPe (YAWn) didn’t build this Trump-god…YOU (IndyCons) made it happen. OWN IT ALREADY.

          • Ryan Schneider.

            I didn’t say they created him, and I am not an IndiCon, not YET. I am saying that, IF Trump is as bad as the more complete thinking conservatives are worried about, (regardless of precise party), then the only way to get rid of him in four years, without handing it to a Dem, will be to switch to third party entirely, which will have the probable side effect of at least mostly killing the GOP. The rest of my proposal is based on the fact that GOP failures will have put them in that predicament in the first place, so why not go all the way and overhaul the whole system? If Trump is as good as many are gambling on, then maybe we will still need that overhaul someday, maybe not, but the self-Fulfilling superstition that voting third party will always be a wasted vote cannot last forever. If it truly is what America needs, or will need one day, a way will be found. Party loyalty should not trump the greater good of the nation, but shouldn’t be switched lightly either. But don’t tell me that a third way will forever be out of reach in the republic.

          • DeplorableMessMan ✔ JesseMessy

            Allow me to FIFY: “The only way to get rid of him in four years is [1] make sure he does NOT get nominated THIS YEAR (which means “re/register as Repub & go vote in the PRIMARY”…and [2] Stop burning the letters “G” and “O” and “P” over a monster that the GOPe (YAWn) had nothing to do with, which will (otherwise) have the probable definite of KILLING AMERICA…. [3] NOT by voting 3rd-party (whichever of the 333 other parties IS the “3rd”-party, which already brought us 8 years of Bill-C and 8 years of Obama…(333)3rd-parties and GOPDS are for those who quit on America.”

          • Ryan Schneider.

            I do oppose Trump, and will oppose him to the end of the primaries, and then pray we are wrong about him if he wins. If he is as bad as we fear however, I am not so superstitious about 3rd parties as you are. That’s self fulfilling psychology. If we fail to stop him, and he is proven as bad as we fear, then we must take the leap of faith that hasn’t been seen since 1860. I will not let America die, any more then the ex-Wigs let the Union die. If that means doing what they did, so be it. Don’t just role up and wait for death man, never!

          • DeplorableMessMan ✔ JesseMessy

            [FACEPALM]…A moment ago, you denied implying that the GOP created DT, yet here you are, back to comparing Reps to Whigs & saying “America didn’t die then so why now”. Because “demographics & radicalization of the Left, THAT’s why America’ll die this time if you don’t stop (admittedly) scapegoating the GOP for Trump. (YES, you admit scapegoating the Reps, since you admit it wasn’t they who created DT and yet somehow your “solution” is to divide conservs into 333 parties against ONE UNIFIED Democrat party…That’s INSANE. Well HERE’s the grownup POV: if we fail to stop DT, it will ‘after all’ be WE who failed (as in “we-not-me who fail to vote in the Repub-primary for the leading conserv”), NOT “the Whigs GOP” who failed (not by a longshot). That’s how to NOT roll up & wait or death, and nothing will convince me otherwise. Don’t bring up 3rd-parties again when replying to my initial comments. Just. Don’t.

          • Ryan Schneider.

            Then you have no solution if Trump wins and is a crook. Just blow our collective brains out. Not me or my own, we will revolt, one way, or another, with or without you. I pray you will choose life after all.

          • DeplorableMessMan ✔ JesseMessy

            It’s the revolting one “revolutionaries” who brought us Trumpmania, GDit. Let’s just “agree to disagree” and call it a night.

          • Ryan Schneider.

            Ok, but keep those cyanid pills handy, just in case. ?

  • DeplorableMessMan ✔ JesseMessy

    “GOPe” = YAWn. We’re mostly adults, here, who are too mature to keep believing that Rino-boogeymen hide in our kiddie-closets…AND we’re intelligent enough to know that we have a GOP-Congress…NOT a GOP-President…awfully hard to keep promises that way. Now take your GOPe and GFYs.

  • Mike

    “We’re not seeing a lot of courage here,” Trump told Fox News’ Megyn Kelly in a 2011 interview. “These Republicans, they’re supposed to be brave.” What a hypocrite. Even if at debates he is not there he is cognitive depreciated of any knowledge. Just at debate to give useless totally useful poll update. Glad vets told him to go screw draft dodger fraud.. But in their 2011 interview, Trump heaped praise on Kelly’s moderating skills. He is so full of shit He is the light weight

  • Mike

    Her show is rated much much better than his horrible 113 rd rated. Like the fraud lightweight You can NOT be fired from a job you are trying to get.

  • Mike

    Correct and delusional don never voted in a republican primary most likely a light weight. or imply not smart enough

  • FranklinWasRight

    Trump blamed Fox’s insulting press releases, which they eventually apologized for. This wasn’t all about Kelly.

    And the way Fox mocked Trump is something that any self respecting candidate should stand up too. Maybe not the way Trump did it, but we really need to start hitting back at the media when they are biased or we have no right to complain about it.

  • Petrucio14

    I’d like to know, if he really believes he ‘won’ his scrap with Megyn Kelly, why doesn’t he let it go? Does he think he has to keep poking at it?

    • DeplorableMessMan ✔ JesseMessy

      Excellent point…Not sure that he thinks he “has to” keep this up, but it’s how he keeps throwing breadcrumbs to his masses. The question now is whether his “masses” (who’ve proved that they love unpresidential behavior) are the kind who…y’know…vote in primaries.
