Howard Stern Asked Donald Trump To Rate How Hot Megyn Kelly Is On A 1-10 Scale, BUT TRUMP BACKED DOWN
Donald Trump is still looking like the strongest horse in the GOP Presidential nomination polls. But last night he ticked the Fox News conservative mouthpiece machine off with a mean-spirited tweet about at Megyn Kelly, who was out on hard-earned vacation for a few weeks:

“Donald Trump’s surprise and unprovoked attack on Megyn Kelly during her show last night is as unacceptable as it is disturbing. Megyn Kelly represents the very best of American journalism and all of us at FOX News Channel reject the crude and irresponsible attempts to suggest otherwise. I could not be more proud of Megyn for her professionalism and class in the face of all of Mr. Trump’s verbal assaults. Her questioning of Mr. Trump at the debate was tough but fair, and I fully support her as she continues to ask the probing and challenging questions that all presidential candidates may find difficult to answer. Donald Trump rarely apologizes, although in this case, he should. We have never been deterred by politicians or anyone else attacking us for doing our job, much less allowed ourselves to be bullied by anyone and we’re certainly not going to start now. All of our journalists will continue to report in the fair and balanced way that has made FOX News Channel the number one news network in the industry.”
It also caused many Fox News hosts to jump to their colleague’s defense:

Today Trump called into the Howard Stern show because Stern wanted Trump to answer a single question: How hot does he think Kelly is on a 1-10 scale? Apparently Trump is bowing to the political pressure of Fox News aligning against him, along with the backlash that comes from answering such a question about Hedi Klum. He refused to answer it to Howard Stern:
“In the old days, I would not have minded answering that question,” Trump said with a laugh, slyly acknowledging his past comments about Heidi Klum. “But nowadays I’ll take a pass.”
Is Trump’s refusal to answer Howard’s question the first sign of political weakness? Doesn’t America LOVE Trump BECAUSE he answers questions like this? If Trump can’t answer how hot Megyn Kelly is to Howard Stern, how is he fit to be put on the hot seat by Vladimir Putin?
Trump is starting to show some respect. But is respect the first sign of political weakness?
