After spending much of last night’s GOP debate in the spotlight — and in the crosshairs of the Fox News moderators — Donald Trump offered some criticism of those moderators, focusing in particular on Megyn Kelly.
Trump tweeted: “I really enjoyed the debate tonight even though the @FoxNews trio, especially @megynkelly, was not very good or professional!”
And: “Wow, @megynkelly really bombed tonight. People are going wild on twitter! Funny to watch.”
Kelly confronted Trump during the debate on a number of his past comments, including remarks aimed at women.
The Washington Post notes that Kelly “memorably pushed him on his history of misogynistic comments: ‘You’ve called women you don’t like “fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals.”‘ Later, she wondered when he decided to become a Republican and asked about his flip-flops on abortion.”
The Post adds that Trump was also pressed on his past support for a single-payer health-care system and his contributions to Hillary Clinton, among other issues.
Trump also sent out tweets targeting GOP pollster Frank Luntz, who ran a focus group following the debate that gave a thumbs-down to Trump’s performance.
Trump tweeted: “@FrankLuntz is a low class slob who came to my office looking for consulting work and I had zero interest. Now he picks anti-Trump panels!”
In another tweet, Trump wrote: “@FrankLuntz, your so-called ‘focus groups’ are a total joke. Don’t come to my office looking for business again. You are a clown!”
Here’s a clip put up by The Washington Post featuring some of Trump’s memorable lines from the debate:
