Get The Popcorn Ready - Trump v. Fox, Round 2

When Fux "News" anchor Megyn Kelly returned from a 10-day vacation, after Fux boss Roger "Jabba The Nut" Ailes made nice with billionaire narcissist Donald "Rump" Trump following Kelly's memorable debate questioning of Rump, there seemed to be peace (or at least a truce) between the two.  But as soon as Kelly returned to her program last night, the thin-skinned Rump unleashed a new series of nasty, misogynist tweets about Kelly, saying that she was "off her game" and "should be replaced," followed by some retweets from his rageaholic fans calling Kelly a "bimbo" and other charming epithets.

Ailes fired off a statement calling Rump's attack "unacceptable as it is disturbing," writing that "Donald Trump rarely apologizes, although in this case, he should." Rump later responded saying he did not think Kelly "was a quality journalist."

What makes this continuing dust-up so gratifying is the fact that Ailes & Co. have let Rump spew his venom for years at Fux's political adversaries.  Now, with the blunderbuss aimed at them, we'll see how Fux handles the monster that they had a large role in creating.
