The feud began nearly nine months ago, when Donald Trump became angered at a debate question about his treatment of women from Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly.
Trump's dissatisfaction with the reporter has been anything but private and has been all but friendly. Among the most biting of criticisms from the billionaire businessman was a Twitter retweet, labeling Kelly as a "bimbo."
In an interview that premiered on FOX Tuesday night, Kelly confronted Trump over the name calling.
"Well, that was a retweet — did I say that?" Trump asked in the sit-down, their first conversation since the August 2015 debate, noting that there were worse comments that he chose not to retweet.
Kelly replied, "Many times."
"Oh, OK. Excuse me," Trump, clearly uncomfortable, answered, as Kelly smiled on.
But Trump was quick to clarify that, surely, his comment was "not the most horrible" thing that's ever been said about Kelly.
"Over your life, Megyn, you've been called a lot worse," he said. "[Y]ou've had a life that's not been that easy."
Kelly simply told the real estate developer that it's not about her, but is instead about the young girls and women watching him and the parents teaching their children not to be a bully.
