"He ran away from military service, now he's running from Megyn Kelly. Is there anything #DonaldDuck isn't afraid of?"
Donald Trump's supporters are so loyal they may stick with him even if he stands in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoots somebody, but Ted Cruz's supporters are pretty devoted too.
After Trump announced he would boycott the Fox News debate on Thursday, Ted Cruz challenged him to a duel. Well, OK, not a duel per se, but a one-on-one debate.
And then Twitter got involved.
The hashtag #DonaldDuck started to go viral – an attempt to tease, mock, and troll Trump.

#DonaldDuck is afraid of Megyn Kelly!! What a loser. Sad.— Elijah O'Kelley (@ElijahOKelley) January 27, 2016
It appears to have been started with this tweet:
Will #DonaldDuck a debate with Ted Cruz?— Brian Phillips (@RealBPhil) January 27, 2016
But regardless, these tweets are just as entertaining regardless of the inspiration:
Conservative commentator John Podhoretz got involved:
New hashtag, let's make it viral: #DonaldDuck— John Podhoretz (@jpodhoretz) January 27, 2016
As did many others on Twitter:
