Donald Trump Exposes His Inner Tyrant; Says FCC Should Fine This Pundit For Anti-Trump Comments

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump gave a glimpse into how a Trump presidency would handle political opposition on Wednesday night, revealing that he may be even more anti-freedom of the press than our current tyrannical president, Marxist Barack Obama.

After the National Review editor and FOX News contributor Rich Lowry delivered comments highly critical of Trump on The Kelly File on Wednesday evening, Trump revealed his inner tyrant — a reaction that is more than disturbing — it’s chilling.

After showing a series of attacks by Donald Trump against the surging Carly Fiorina, Lowry said that the reason Trump is upset with her is because she “cut his balls off” during the last debate.

“Look, Trump obviously attacks everyone,” Lowry began in response to the Trump attacks against Fiorina. “But she’s become a much bigger target, and I think part of what’s going on here is that last debate. Let’s be honest, Carly cut his balls off with the precision of a surgeon, and he knows it,” Lowry stated to shock and awe from Megyn Kelly and the other guest, The Blaze Radio’s Chris Salcedo.

Lowry went on to say that people are beginning to wake up to the fact that Trump’s attacks, which formerly were perceived as tough, are now starting to sound “thin-skinned.”

The provocative comment, if it was intended to send Trump over the deep end, certainly accomplished its mission. Not only did Lowry’s using the word “balls” cause raised eyebrows among the FOX panel, it also lit a fire under the seat of “The Donald,” causing Trump to go on a Twitter rant in which he called for the Obama FCC to run to his rescue, using the power of big government to limit Lowry’s free speech. This despite the fact that the word “balls” is not considered one of the seven dirty words by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission.

In addition to encouraging the Obama FCC to go after Lowry, Trump, sounding like Hugo Chavez, tweeted that Lowry should be banned from television:

As might be expected, Rich Lowry saw Donald Trump’s tweet and shot back accordingly, admitting that he dropped the verbal bomb to set Trump off, basically saying the truth hurts:

One minute later, after his first tweet, Trump dug further, stepping up his war against FOX News, the most conservative of the major TV networks, a network Trump vowed to boycott for the foreseeable future, because he feels they treat him “unfairly.” Trump tweeted that FOX News owes him an apology for “allowing clueless pundit Rich Lowry to use such foul language on TV.”

Lowry continued to fire back, calling hypocrisy over “Mr. Anti-PC” calling on the FCC to fine Lowry:

The Twitter war reached such a level on Wednesday evening, that it even caught the attention of TV personality and ardent supporter of military vets, Montel Williams, who tweeted following the brush-up that TV personalities should, as Trump has shown, “not run for president.”

Others joined in as well:

Some tweeps even began a hashtag #NoBallsTrump, complete with a personalized meme:

America already has one thin-skinned president. How is that working out? Do we need another one?
