Dear Mr. Trump,
The last time you faced Megyn Kelly, you were a little perturbed at her questioning of you under the category of electability. In responding to her question about your choice of words when you feud with others, especially women, you took umbrage and directed a few shots back.
While you have gained some sympathy for being targeted unfairly, you seem to have not only decided you don’t want to face her again, but you want to leverage your good polling numbers as a mob call to not have to endure her determined questioning.
Here’s your problem: Poll numbers are not solid for any candidate at any time. One wrong move, and you’re going to see people leave in droves. In fact, this may actually be the one time you discover, most likely the hard way, that being a narcissist and a prima donna may see the beginning of your decline.
No one questions your business savvy. We all know your ability to entertain. But you’re not invincible nor invulnerable. It’s pretty clear who put the crack in your armour. The question is, will you take the time to repair it, make good with the voters and those on the fence, and demonstrate diplomacy in seeking a resolution – or will you try to ignore it and hope it doesn’t turn into a mortal wound that will leave a trail of blood seeing your political corpse danced upon from historians years down the road?
I don’t have any problem with you being the President. However, you will find that people in this country will only tolerate your belligerent and disrespectful behavior towards a person of Megyn Kelly’s character for so long. If the momentum shifts in her favor, you will have lost a potential ally in your bid to become President. She can’t make anyone become the Chief Executive, but you might end up with a mortally wounded campaign.
Be the big man you espouse to be to your followers. Do the debate. Stop this silliness.
