Why else would they be crying like little girls after hearing that Fox News has once again named their top anchor, Megyn Kelly, as one of the moderators of the next GOP debate?
It's interesting to see how these conservatives live down to the the opinions that many from the center and left have of them. With all the talk about the war on women (largely false) over the past couple of years aimed at the GOP, you'd think that Trump and Cruz supporters would shy away from complaints about her looks (she's apparently ugly without makeup according to them), her boobs (must be fake), and her ascension to the top of the Fox News food chain (who did she sleep with to get there). Kinda proves what many of us suspected - that many conservatives are really and truly stuck in the 20th century - and the early parts of it at that.
Why is it that Trump and Cruz supporters are whining about this petite powerhouse of a journalist?
Maybe it's because she holds the feet of candidates to the fire, and asks the tough questions they don't want to answer.
And the thing is, she doesn't play favorites. Despite all bleating to the contrary, she very pointedly showed clips of Marco Rubio stating what could be very different viewpoints regarding so-called "amnesty" for illegal aliens (so-called, because Cruz and Trump supporters like to falsely equate a legal path to citizenship as "amnesty" no matter how many hoops and fines illegals might have to go through in order to stay here). Rubio dug in and explained his position, showing Kelly where it differed from the Democrat's position on amnesty. Whether you believed it or not is up to the viewer, but that question rightly allowed Rubio to clarify what he perceived as a misconception some in the GOP have with his stance on illegal immigration.
After the first Fox News debate, Trump had his usual hissy-fit and boycotted the second one, using Twitter to denigrate Kelly and Fox News in the most childish manner. And yes, Fox was wrong to issue that silly press release when Trump announced he wouldn't attend if Megyn Kelly was going to moderate the next one. During the second debate, Cruz whined about being treated unfairly, and either mockingly or actually threatened to leave the debate if he wasn't treated better. The audience reaction showed that Cruz was being a jerk.
Not a peep out of Rubio supporters, because he took the question like a man.
Now Cruz and Trump supporters are whining about Fox News using the same three moderators in the next debate, and using the argument that Fox News is no longer conservative. In this case, they're right. Fox News has never been conservative in their news coverage, only in some of their choices for opinion show hosts like Sean Hannity. In everything else, Fox News lives by their slogan, "Fair and balanced".
But Trump and Cruz (and their supporters) don't want fair and balanced. They want to be coddled and pampered. Maybe, as Megyn Kelly herself suggested when some of the GOP contenders were mulling over being able to pick and choose moderators and the questions they would ask, they might like a little back rub or shoulder massage during the debates as well. Who are these spineless wimps who want to be our next Commander-in-Chief, and the people who support them?
There is only one Megyn Kelly, and she runs rings around people like Donald Trump and Ted Cruz.
And their supporters can't stand it.
