DONALD TRUMP CREATES WINNING MOVEMENT; MEGYN KELLY THOUGHT HE WAS A JOKE

Super Tuesday after winning three states the media feud between 2016 GOP Frontrunner Donald Trump and Fox News host Megyn Kelly reignited.
Megyn started this unnecessary feud when she attacked Trump during the first GOP debate last August with a slew of questions obviously designed to paint him as a Male Chauvinistic, Woman Hater. (He's not)
No doubt Megyn has a long term beef with Trump for whatever reason and now that she is in a position of POWER, she's chosen to use that POWER for Revenge.
However it appears to have backfired.
Mr Trump is still hurt from that blind-sided incident and Megyn realizes she should not have opened Pandora's box for the sake of Revenge or Dirty Politics.
Prior to the first GOP debate perhaps Megyn viewed Mr Trump as a brash, celebrity reality tv show Joke versus seeing him as an Intelligent Billionaire who possesses years of great Business knowledge.
Trump has created a winning Political movement and he is going to be the 2016 GOP Presidential nominee.
It's time for Megyn Kelly to accept, adapt and adjust so the GOP can regain the White House.
The next Republican presidential debate has been canceled.
GOP frontrunner Donald Trump was scheduled to face Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in a Fox News debate Monday night in Salt Lake City. Trump now says he will not attend, citing a scheduling conflict, and Kasich also bowed out.
"Nobody told me about debates. As you saw, I thought the last debate on CNN was the last debate," Trump said on "Fox & Friends" Wednesday morning. "I think it's enough."
Politico reports Trump said he'll instead speak at a conference for the pro-Israel lobbying group AIPAC, adding that it had been "scheduled a while ago."
A spokesman for Kasich said he won't debate without Trump onstage.
Karen Boe, a spokeswoman for the Salt Palace Convention Center, confirmed to the Associated Press Wednesday that the Republican National Committee event was being scrapped. Cruz would have been the only candidate on stage, Fox 13 in Salt Lake City reported.
It would've been the first presidential debate held in Utah, according to the AP, and taken place a day before Utah's caucus and Arizona's primary.
Syracuse native and Syracuse University alumna Megyn Kelly was scheduled to moderate the debate, along with Fox News Channel personalities Bret Baier and Chris Wallace. Trump previously feuded with Kelly, calling her "dopey," "overrated" and biased after she asked him about alleged sexist remarks at the first GOP debate in August.
The billionaire-turned-politician refused to participate in another Fox News debate moderated by Kelly, but faced her again in the cable news channel's third debate earlier this month. He later said that skipping the second debate could have cost him Iowa, where Cruz won in January.
It appears unlikely Trump will face Kelly again anytime soon. He took shots at "The Kelly File" host again on Twitter as Super Tuesday results came in for North Carolina, Illinois and other states.
"Can't watch Crazy Megyn anymore," he tweeted. "Talks about me at 43% but never mentions that there are four people in race. With two people, big & over!"
Trump called Kelly "crazy" in several more tweets, and retweeted others' criticisms of her coverage on Fox News.
Kelly has not responded to Trump, but Fox News released a statement Wednesday afternoon:
"On Feb. 20, the Republican National Committee announced that a GOP presidential primary debate would be held on March 21 in Salt Lake City. They offered that debate to Fox News Channel to host, provided there were enough candidates actively campaigning. This morning, Donald Trump announced he would not be participating in the debate. Shortly afterward, John Kasich's campaign announced that without Trump at the debate, Kasich would not participate. Ted Cruz has expressed a willingness to debate Trump or Kasich -- or both. But obviously, there needs to be more than one participant. So the Salt Lake City debate is cancelled."
