TRUCE: MEGYN KELLY AND DONALD TRUMP BOTH GO ON A 10-DAY VACATION

imageNEW YORK, New York  (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – The word war between Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and FOX News seems to be coming to an end, thanks to  an agreement recently made between Trump and FOX News Chairman Roger Ailes.

Earlier in the week, Ailes was quoted as saying to Trump, ‘We resolve this now…or go to war.’

It all started during the first Republican presidential debate when FOX News moderator Megyn Kelly asked Trump about his past comments that were degrading to women.

On her Wednesday broadcast, Kelly announced she would be taking a vacation, starting immediately. “It’s been an interesting week,” Kelly said, adding “It’s been six months since I’ve had a vacation.”

Almost simultaneously, the Trump campaign announced that their candidate has cancelled  all his campaign and media appearances for the next 10 days.

It is highly unlikely that Kelly and Trump will be vacationing in the same resort, but it would be interesting to see — after both come back from vacation — who would have a darker tan.

 

 

 

DONALD TRUMP DECLINES DEBATE OFFER BY NATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR WOMEN

imageWASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – What is Donald Trump afraid of?

The Republican presidential candidate has declined an offer by NOW, the National Organization for Women, for a televised one-on-one debate with FOX News anchor Megyn Kelly to discuss women’s issues in America.

At last week’s FOX News Republican presidential debate,  Trump was asked by Kelly, who was one of the three moderators, about his past disparaging comments about women.   In response, Trump said he had no time for political correctness.

In post-debate tweets, the real estate mogul accused Kelly of being unfair and unprofessional about her questioning and said that the Fox News host had “blood coming out of her wherever.”

“You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes,” Trump told CNN’s Don Lemon on Friday night. “Blood coming out of her wherever.”

NOW is the largest organization of feminist activists in the United States, with hundreds of thousands of contributing members and more than 500 local and campus affiliates in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

Responding to reporters’ questions about why he is declining the NOW invitation, Trump said, “Are you kidding me?  It was bad enough with one woman having her monthly period during the FOX News debate.  I’m not going to risk being in an auditorium full of women having their periods. I’m a businessman and I can easily recognize what would be a losing proposition.”

Trump’s “blood comment” has outraged a lot of women in America and the candidate’s biggest challenge right now is how to win back what he may have lost in terms of women’s votes.

LIKE A CRY BABY, DONALD TRUMP COMPLAINS TO CNN’S DON LEMON ABOUT FOX NEWS’ MEGYN KELLY

imageATLANTA, Georgia (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – After being battered by a female moderator during Thursday night’s GOP presidential debate, Donald Trump desperately needed to  blow off some steam with someone –  like another news anchor from  another cable news network.

Trump found his ally in CNN’s Don Lemon.  After all, he is his namesake.

In an interview with Don Lemon on “CNN Tonight,” Trump on Friday accused FOX News of asking “vicious,” unfair questions at the debate and called Kelly “overrated.” Kelly had pressed Trump about misogynistic, sexist comments in his past.

On CNN, Trump called the questions “ridiculous,” called Kelly “off-base,” and said, “You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes.  Blood coming out of her wherever.”

Trump told Lemon that he didn’t know whether he’d participate in a future FOX News debate. “I didn’t think they were fair.”

Lemon volunteered to moderate the next GOP presidential debate and promised Trump he would be more fair than Kelly.

Lemon’s ratings are significantly down and so he needed a boost in viewership. He thinks that moderating the next GOP Debate will boost his and CNN’s ratings.

Lemon’s ratings suffered a setback recently when debris from the missing Malaysia Airlines  Flight 370 washed ashore in Reunion Island in the French Indian Ocean.

During CNN’s desperate search for the missing plane, Lemon had speculated that the jet may have been sucked up by a black hole or “kidnapped” by a higher power. Now that theory has gone down the drain. Or the ocean.
