Donald Trump's refusal to take the stage at the FOX News Republican debate Thursday because he objects to Megan Kelly as a moderator triggered this questioning tweet from the singer/actress Cher (who supports Hillary Clinton's candidacy):

Trump has played a game of chicken with Fox, demanding that they replace Kelly as moderator because he thinks she is unfair. When Fox refused to budge, Trump announced he would host a fundraiser for the Wounded Warrior Project instead of debating.

"Roger Ailes and FOX News think they can toy with him, but Mr. Trump doesn't play games."
