Fox News responds to Trump's attacks on Megyn Kelly

- Donald Trump’s latest attacks against Fox News journalist Megyn Kelly are “beneath the dignity of a presidential candidate,” the network said in a statement Friday.

The Republican candidate, who first attacked Kelly in August for her hard-hitting questioning at a GOP debate, called for a boycott of the top-rated primetime cable news show “The Kelly File.” As with past social media insults directed at Kelly, Trump got personal, calling Kelly “sick” and “overrated.”

“Donald Trump’s vitriolic attacks against Megyn Kelly and his extreme, sick obsession with her is beneath the dignity of a presidential candidate who wants to occupy the highest office in the land,” Fox News said in a statement.

Kelly has declined to respond Trump’s tactics, even after Trump demanded that she be removed from the panel moderating Fox’s Republican debate in Iowa in January. After the network refused to bow to the demand, Trump skipped the debate and went on to finish second to Ted Cruz in the state’s caucuses.
