"The bimbo's back in town": Donald Trump live-tweets Megyn Kelly's return to Fox News

"I like the Kelly File much better without her. Perhaps she could take another 11 day unscheduled vacation!"

Megyn Kelly returned from her suspiciously timed vacation Monday night, and Donald Trump -- who likely had a role in the timing of her absence -- couldn't pass up the opportunity to live-tweet her homecoming.

Although Trump merely retweeted someone else calling Kelly a "bimbo," it's worth noting that it's the second time he's done so. It's almost as if he believes that while retweets aren't endorsements, repeatedly retweeting the same insult about the same person won't give people the impression that it's a belief he shares with followers.


Once he had finished dispatching Kelly, or whatever it was he thought he was doing, Trump turned his attention to Jeb Bush:

At least he didn't attack Jeb for how he looks -- at least not yet, it's only 8:08 a.m. on the East Coast.
