The back-and-forth between Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump and Fox News Channel continued on Wednesday as Fox News guests accused Trump of "childish" behavior.
"This is what you expect from Donald Trump," said Fox News contributor and Weekly Standard columnist Stephen Hayes on the panel discussion portion of "Special Report"
said. "I mean, it’s just childish the way that he’s reacting, as if tough questions are somehow inappropriate for someone who’s running for president of the United States. I think it’s crazy."
But Trump is still leading, even in the latest Fox News poll,
and, "He is not acting like somebody who is leading," Hayes said. "He seems to be increasingly nervous that he’s going to lose that lead or flailing."
Trump on Wednesday said he is boycotting Fox News
for not treating him fairly, but Fox said Trump's "boycott" came only after the network had canceled an appearance by Trump on "The O'Reilly Factor"
that had been scheduled for Thursday.
Radio host Laura Ingraham has sympathized with Trump in the past, but not on Wednesday.
"Haven't we all been canceled from Fox shows?" she said on "Special Report." "You are running for president of the United States, you’re going to get tough questions."
