Fox News Vs. Trump

It looks like Fox News is now turning on Trump because he broke the rules of their recent (We won't rip you if you don't rip us) agreement by ripping Megyn Kelly again. But I think they've made a classic schoolyard mistake in the way they are doing it. Here's the headline: Roger Ailes: Trump Should Apologize to Megyn Kelly; Fox News Won’t be ‘Bullied by Anyone’.

Think about it. What would Fox do if someone demanded that they apologize and accused them of bullying? We know exactly what they'd do because they've been doing it for twenty years. They'd go on the air and imply whoever is accusing them of bullying is a puss. "Oh, wah. Are your fragile wittle feelings hurt?" That's exactly what Donald Trump is going to do to them. There's an endless game of "I know you are but what am I" brewing, with no end in sight until one side realizes that "Nuh uh" is not a sufficient retort.

Who do you think is more likely to buckle first, Trump or Fox? My money's on Fox. Their mommy is looking up Donald's mommy's phone number right now.
