Fox Broadcast television, not the Fox News channel, had been promoting a "Megyn Presents," interview show with Megyn Kelly for a long time and the big draw was her yuge upcoming interview with Donald Trump, the man who said she has blood coming out of everywhere.

"The interview, which will take place in New York, marks the first sit-down between the two since the August 2015 presidential debate on Fox News Channel."

If you've forgotten their rocky history, here's a brief clip of one of their Fox News debate exchanges back in August, 2015, where Donald said, "And honestly Megyn if you don't like it, I'm sorry, I've been very nice to you although I could probably maybe not based on how you have treated me, but I wouldn't do that.." The crowd booed Trump harshly.

He followed his debate comments up by saying this on CNN, "You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, Blood coming out of her wherever."

So when Fox News and Fox TV began promoting this national event, it was using those controversies to build their audience and, in the ratings game, her show did very well, but in the substance department, it left a lot to be desired.

The Washington Post's Erik Wemple wrote, Megyn Kelly’s bankrupt interview with Donald Trump

CC's Trevor Noah opined, “We’re talking about misogyny, not a fart. ‘Excuse me?’ And Megyn Kelly, I don’t get it, you spent months lambasting Trump for his sexist comments and now you’re just laughing it off?”

Megyn Kelly was not happy with her reception and responded with a rant of her own, to all those who criticized her Trump interview. Just like Donald would have.

"My interview with Donald Trump earning lots of viewers and lots of reviews last night. It was the second most watched show on a Tuesday on Fox broadcast in 2016. For that we thank all of you. However it also urged the scourge of many in the mainstream media because it was not a takedown of Trump," Kelly said as she began the segment. "Not surprisingly, many of these critics failed to expose their own bias against Trump, against Fox News or against the GOP."

See, it's not her fault that she decided to blow smoke at Trump - it's all your fault because you're all biased!!!! How dare you to believe that she would have dared to put on a real interviewers' hat and acted like one?

Politico has a full round up of those she ridicules in her rant against her critics.

Too bad she didn't get down like that with Trump, when she sat down with the presumptive Republican nominee.

Usually, we reserve the term "thin skinned" for Donald Trump because he gets so nasty when he believes someone hasn't "treated him fairly," but Megyn just joined that club.

Can you help us out?
