Donald Trump was not happy with GOP debate moderator Megyn Kelly's questioning of him, and, as he usually does when he feels slighted, Trump let the world know.
"I think the questions were not nice. They were inappropriate. I think Megyn behaved very badly," Mary Katherine Ham tweeted that Trump told reporters immediately after the Fox News Channel debate.
Others echoed her reporting:
Trump was asked by Kelly about tweets he has made in the past that insulted women's looks.
"You've called women you don't like fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals," Kelly said, to which Trump replied, "Only Rosie O'Donnell."
Kelly said he had called many more people names than O'Donnell, and a visibly perturbed Trump shot back, "I don't frankly have time for total political correctness. And to be honest with you, this country doesn’t have time, either. If you don’t like it, Megyn, I’m sorry. I’ve been very nice to you. Although I could maybe not be, based on the way you have treated me."
Appearing later on a midnight version of "Hannity," Trump said he'll never apologize
"She's terrible," he said.
Trump was also pressed by moderator Chris Wallace on how he could run the country when several of his businesses have filed for bankruptcy.
Trump said he used the legal system to his advantage and that the lenders that were left holding the bag for his loans were not very nice people.
As to his refusal to pledge not to run third party if he doesn't get the GOP nomination, Trump asked Sean Hannity, "Why should I give up leverage?"
Trump said, though, that he is beginning to "really like the establishment people." RNC Chairman Reince Priebus and other GOP leaders "have been nice lately," he said. "It is good leverage, and I might as well use it."
Trump said he really wants the GOP nomination because he believes he is the only one able to beat Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton.
"Hillary's worst nightmare is me. Who treats her rougher than me?" he said.
