Donald Trump Quits Fox News (Again) After O’Reilly Appearance Is Canceled.

Just hours after he attacked the Democratic candidate’s voice by raising his own several octaves during a campaign speech, Trump said that men can he shrill, too. “I think the word ‘shrill’ doesn’t apply to women exclusively. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks at an event sponsored by the Greater Charleston Business Alliance and the South Carolina African American Chamber of Commerce at the Charleston Area Convention Center in North Charleston, S.C., Wednesday, Sept. 23, 2015. (Mic Smith | AP) NEW YORK (AP) — Donald Trump says he’s done appearing on Fox News shows for the “foreseeable future” because he doesn’t like the network’s coverage of his presidential campaign. Trump said Thursday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “I know men that are shrill, and it’s just an expression that I thought of as I was speaking — I thought it was a very accurate expression.” “She’s gotten very loud, she’s gotten very boisterous, and that can happen,” he said. “Men, too … please, if you don’t mind, that can happen to men.” “She’s gotten very loud and obnoxious and, frankly, I know many men that become very loud and obnoxious, also,” he said. “But I’ve noticed that she — I don’t know; there’s something going on with her. The billionaire businessman and leading Republican candidate tweets that Fox News has been treating him “very unfairly” and that he’s going to stop appearing on its shows.

But a Fox News spokeswoman says that Trump only announced his boycott after the channel canceled a scheduled Trump appearance on “The O’Reilly Factor” Thursday. “When coverage doesn’t go his way, he engages in personal attacks on our anchors and hosts, which has grown stale and tiresome,” she said in a statement. “He doesn’t seem to grasp that candidates telling journalists what to ask is not how the media works in this country.” Marco Rubio and Jeb Bush “hate each other, but they can’t say it,” he added. “I’m so tired of this politically correct crap.” He tweeted Wednesday that he’s boycotting Fox News, even though the network said officials there had canceled a Trump appearance first.

He feuded with Megyn Kelly after the first republican debate after she asked him about his history of calling women he doesn’t like “fat pigs,” “dogs” and “slobs.” Since the critical question, he called Kelly a “bimbo” and once suggested, perhaps inadvertently, that she was hard on him because she was on her period. Trump’s post seemed to have been prompted by its decision, shortly before noon, to cancel his scheduled appearance Thursday on “The O’Reilly Factor.” “The press predictably jumped to cover his tweet, creating yet another distraction from any real issues that Mr. And he yet again called the career of former technology executive Carly Fiorina, another Republican running for president, ‘‘a disaster.’’ ‘‘They say: ‘You can’t say that because it’s sexist,’ ‘‘ Trump said. ‘‘I say: ‘What’s sexist about it?’ I respect women more than I respect men . . .

Clinton has become “very shrill,” as he claimed she actually started the “birther” controversy in 2008 over whether President Obama was born in the United States. “You know the word, ‘shrill?’ ” he said. “She has become shrill. I love women!’’ Several people in the audience said those sorts of brash, politically incorrect comments are the No. 1 reason they love Trump – and why they would vote for him in the presidential primary here next February. ‘‘He speaks his mind. Trump expects to be treated fairly,” the statement read. “All you have to do is look at the tremendous ratings last night from ‘The Late Show’ with Stephen Colbert, where Mr.

He tells the truth,’’ said Stephanie Grant, a mother of three wearing a ‘‘ReTRUMPlican’’ t-shirt who drove about two and a half hours from Hartsville to see Trump. ‘‘As much as I hate to admit it, I’m 42 and I’ve never voted before. Trump was the guest, or the ratings from both debates, to fully understand the facts.” Wednesday’s kerfuffle was the latest in an increasingly public feud between Mr.

Young guy, although he sweats more than any other young person I’ve ever seen in my life,” Trump said. “I’ve never seen a guy down water like he downs water. I never felt like anyone was telling the truth before now.’’ Trump’s comments came during a meandering 40-minute speech that featured many of his regular talking points – l such as China stealing jobs from the U.S. and the media treating him unfairly — along with tangents on sweating, golf, his plane, Michael Jordan, the low quality of foreign-made furniture and his various business ventures. Trump was never a natural fit with Rupert Murdoch, whose film and television company, 21st Century Fox, boasts Fox News as one of its most profitable assets. The audience looked like those at most of Trump’s events: mostly white and skewing older, although a few African American business owners attended. (The crowd was much smaller than those at most Trump events, with rows and rows of empty chairs that, towards the end of the speech, small children raced up and down.) Trump said he likes ‘‘African American negotiators,’’ and he said it should be easier for black entrepreneurs, along with all entrepreneurs, to secure business loans. Earlier, Trump cast Fiorina — another “outsider” candidate trying to appeal to anti-establishment Republicans — as another politician looking for donors who will ultimately control her. “That room was 100 degrees.

The announcement came about 15 minutes after The O’Reilly Factor show canceled an interview with Trump scheduled for Thursday, according to a Fox spokesperson. Becky Causey, a 71-year-old retiree who attended the speech, said she closely reads Trump’s tweets and watches television at least 15 hours per day to catch everything Trump-related.

In an interview on The Tom Joyner Radio Show earlier Wednesday, Clinton called Trump’s assertion that she started the birther claims “ludicrous.” She told guest host Don Lemon: “You know, I have been blamed for nearly everything. But she noted that the channels she surfs is becoming more limited. ‘‘I don’t like CNN because they don’t like Trump,’’ said Causey, a retired nurse who lives in Murrells Inlet. ‘‘Now it looks like Fox News is against him. Chris Christie sweated during the second GOP debate last week, and wondered aloud why Fiorina is ‘‘fighting like hell to raise money’’ instead of self-financing her campaign like him.
