The debate is over, but Donald Trump isn't done sparring with moderators, particularly Megyn Kelly. He fired off late-night tweets venting that “Wow, @megynkelly really bombed tonight. People are going wild on twitter! Funny to watch," reports Politico. And: "I really enjoyed the debate tonight even though the @FoxNews trio, especially @megynkelly, was not very good or professional!” Trump also took aim at Fox analyst Frank Luntz, who hosted a show after the debate: "your so-called 'focus groups' are a total joke," he wrote. "Don't come to my office looking for business again. You are a clown!"

Trump thinks Kelly ambushed him with her question that brought up his previous disparaging remarks about women—and prompted his shot at Rosie O'Donnell. "They didn't ask those questions of anybody else, so I thought it was an unfair question," Trump said afterward, reports the Washington Post. "But you know what? The answers were good, obviously, because everyone thinks I won." (That's debatable.) The whole affair doesn't seem to have chastened Trump in regard to sexist remarks. He made a point to retweet a follower's description of Kelly as a "bimbo," notes Slate. (Click to read the 10 Trumpiest lines of the night.)
