Donald Trump's reaction to how Fox News handled the debate is exactly what you'd expect

Donald Trump is running for president. Most people who run for president probably expect it will lead to some tough questions, especially if they have a history of making ridiculous comments — like, as Trump did, calling women fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals.

Update: Coverage of the second Republican debate.

But not Trump. He viewed the questions from Fox News moderators about his record and past comments as vicious personal attacks. On Twitter, he voiced his disdain for the moderators, particularly Megyn Kelly, and Frank Luntz's debate focus group by tweeting his own thoughts and retweeting more than a dozen people who came to his defense.

Trump seems to believe that the moderators were harder on him than on the other candidates. Maybe that's true. But it's also true that the other candidates haven't publicly called women fat pigs or disgusting animals, and gone on to defend those acts on national television.
