Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said Friday night that Fox News Channel anchor Megyn Kelly “had blood coming out of her eyes” when she aggressively questioned him during Thursday’s presidential debate.
“She gets out and she starts asking me all sorts of ridiculous questions,” Trump said in a CNN interview. “You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever. In my opinion, she was off base.”
In Thursday’s debate, Kelly questioned Trump over his history of offensive statements about women.
Calling in to CNN for a 30-minute interview on Friday night with Don Lemon, Trump hurled insults at Kelly, calling her a “lightweight,” and bashed her co-moderators, Chris Wallace and Bret Baier, as well as other Fox talent.
“I just don’t respect her as a journalist,” Trump said of Kelly. “I have no respect for her. I don’t think she’s very good. I think she’s highly overrated.”
Trump said he is considering skipping the next debate hosted by Fox News Channel, scheduled for January in Iowa, because he believes he was treated unfairly by the network’s moderators.
Trump is simply a whiner. He can’t take the heat. He doesn’t assume responsibility for his actions. He tries to excuse himself for whatever misdeeds he has done.
Now Donald Trump has been uninvited to speak at the Red State Convention, according to the Washington Post:
ATLANTA — Conservative commentator Erick Erickson on Friday night disinvited GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump from speaking at an activist conference he is hosting here this weekend, citing disparaging remarks Trump made hours earlier on CNN about Fox News Channel anchor Megyn Kelly.
In an interview with The Washington Post, Erickson said Trump had been scheduled to speak at his RedState gathering on Saturday at the College Football Hall of Fame, but he told Corey Lewandowski, Trump’s campaign manager, about an hour before midnight that Trump was no longer welcome.
Trump will be upended because of his big mouth, his rude manners, and his disrespect of women. He is a flash in the pan and he is unelectable. He will soon fade to gray and be a mere echo of his own ego. Meanwhile, speaking of women, if I were a Republican, I would be taking a real close look at Carly Fiorina. She is sharp, informed, and exudes leadership. I am sure she would be willing to take Trump’s place on the Big Stage at the next debate.
Trump will learn that the women’s vote is critical. Saying “You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever….” was simply over the top. As Eric e3rickson says, “Bridge too far.”
I officially declare Donald Trump a douche bag.
