Just when it looked like there would be no letup from Trump’s bashing of Fox News and Megyn Kelly following last week’s GOP debate, Fox News chief Roger Ailes appears to have stepped in to smooth things over.

Trump's reaction — via Twitter — was swift:



During Thursday’s debate, Kelly questioned Trump about a history of calling women derogatory names.

Within hours after the debate, Trump took to Twitter to bash Kelly, insisting that she had "bombed" and that the network’s handling of him had been "unprofessional."

On Friday night, Trump told CNN that "you could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her wherever," leading critics to say Trump was referring to Kelly's menstrual cycle.

Trump took to the Sunday talk shows and doubled down on his criticism that he had been treated unfairly by Kelly, but clarified that his comments had nothing to do with implying Kelly was hormonal. He said he was going to finish his sentence with "from her nose," but ended up moving on to other subjects.

Early on Monday morning, Trump turned away a question by MSNBC’s "Morning Joe" over whether he'd talked to anybody at Fox News about finding common cause, but insisted that he doesn't think the network treats him well.

"I'm not going to embarrass anybody," Trump told MSNBC. "My whole life has been led on the theory that I do not want to embarrass people."

Trump had said he doesn't understand why he wasn't treated well by Fox, but reiterated that he's at the top of the polls and suggested he should just leave matters the way they were.
