Donald Trump went ham on Twitter with a bazillion “Crazy Megyn” comments directed at Megyn Kelly this week. First of all, “Crazy Megyn” is a lazy af nickname. Call her “Manic Megyn” or “Meshugenah Megyn” or “Mad Megyn” or “Meanie Megyn.” Poetry is dead.

Trump’s anti-alliteration rampage started after Kelly interviewed Ted Cruz on her show, and also shared the fact that all of Trump’s hateful tweeting about various women is taking a toll in the polls.

Donald Trump’s vitriolic attacks against Megyn Kelly and his extreme, sick obsession with her is beneath the dignity of a presidential candidate who wants to occupy the highest office in the land. Megyn is an exemplary journalist and one of the leading anchors in America — we’re extremely proud of her phenomenal work and continue to fully support her throughout every day of Trump’s endless barrage of crude and sexist verbal assaults. As the mother of three young children, with a successful law career and the second highest rated show in cable news, it’s especially deplorable for her to be repeatedly abused just for doing her job.

Of course, the top comments are from all the Donald Trump supporters that Fox News has been arming with misinformed, racist, misogynist ideas for years. The moniker “Megyn Smelly” is liked over 7,000 times. Now that’s a nickname.
