Fox Tells Trump: Kelly Will Be Debate Moderator
Fox gave a giant middle finger to Donald Trump on Saturday when they informed the Republican frontrunner that Megyn Kelly would be moderating the next debate.
Trump and Kelly have been feuding since the first debate, which saw Trump make extremely sexist comments after he was pressed with a tough question from a sickly Kelly.
After hearing the news, Trump took to Twitter and slammed Fox for choosing Kelly to moderate the debate.
Based on @MegynKelly's conflict of interest and bias she should not be allowed to be a moderator of the next debate.

The Hill reports:
Fox responded to the calls for Kelly’s removal hours later in a statement provided to The Hill.
“Megyn Kelly has no conflict of interest,” Fox said in the statement. “Donald Trump is just trying to build up the audience for Thursday’s debate, for which we thank him.”
Trump has continually attacked Kelly since early August, when the two clashed during a Fox News debate after Trump accused Kelly of asking unfair questions.
Fox hosts the next GOP debate Thursday in Des Moines, Iowa, just days before the Iowa caucuses.
