How Exactly Did We Get To This Trump Vs. Fox News Fiasco?

Donald Trump is skipping the Fox News debate, but how did we even get to this point?

"I didn't want to be here. I have to be honest. I wanted to be about five minutes away. I've enjoyed that."

Donald Trump made good on his promise to skip the Fox News debate. 

"At some point, you have to start doing things other than debating," Trump told Bill O'Reilly Wednesday night

Instead he held an event at the same time 

for veterans and Wounded Warriors at Drake University. 

But why'd Trump even skip the debate? 

You can sort of blame Megyn Kelly. 

Kelly moderated the first Fox News GOP debate. 

And Trump took issue with this question: 

"You've called women you don't like 'fat pigs,' 'dogs,' 'slobs,'" Kelly said at the first GOP debate, asking Trump about his treatment of women. 

After, Trump attacked Kelly ... a lot. (Video via CNN)

Then Trump demanded she be pulled from moderating Thursday's debate. 

Because Kelly was "unfair."

But Fox News stood by its anchor and 

made fun of Trump while it was at it. 

"We learned from a secret back channel that the Ayatollah and Putin both intend to treat Donald Trump unfairly when they meet with him if he becomes president." 

But it doesn't seem like any love is lost. (Video via CNN

Trump says more than $5 million was raised Thursday;

$1 million was from him.
