Donald Trump: "Bimbo" Megyn Kelly behaved "unprofessionally" and "very badly personally" during GOP debate

Trump spent the hours after the debate online bemoaning his mistreatment and boasting about his unequivocal victory

Not only did Donald Trump consider the questions asked by Fox News' Megyn Kelly to be "not nice," if not outright "unfair," he spent a good portion of the night re-tweeting those who shared his frustration at Kelly's allegedly unprofessional behavior.

"The questions to me were far tougher, and that I — supposedly, according to what everyone’s telling me, I won the debate, according to the call-ins and everything," Buzzfeed News reports he said shortly after the debate ended. "But the questions to me were not nice, I didn’t think they were appropriate, and I think Megyn behaved very badly personally."

He ruled out personally calling Roger Ailes and demanding an apology, however, choosing instead to spend the rest of the evening -- and early into the next morning -- venting about his mistreatment on Twitter.

Nor was he pleased with the results of Frank Luntz's focus group, which happened in the immediate aftermath of the debate:

At that point, he apparently tired of generating words himself, and just decided to let others do the praise and condemnation for him:
