Megyn Kelly’s response to Donald Trump is Trump-esque: she’s not apologizing.
When Kelly appeared on Fox News’ The Kelly File Monday, she addressed Trump’s “blood” comments at the top of the hour.
When Fox’s Megyn Kelly asked why Trump why he refers to women as “fat pigs” and “slobs” and such, his glib reply: “Only Rosie O’Donnell”.
He’s denied that the comment was about her period, saying only a “deviant” mind would make that connection, and that he was actually referencing that time-honoured phrase: “blood pouring out of their eyes”.
She said he would match any money coming in.
The ambiguous “wherever” set people off, both women and men (some of which were Trump’s opponents) accusing the candidate of reinforcing an age-old idea that women don’t belong in politics because their actions are heavily influenced by their menstrual cycle – an unscientific idea, by the way.
“Megyn Kelly is a strong woman and more than capable of defending herself against Donald Trump“, Clinton said.
Sanford, R-S.C., has attended numerous appearances by Republican presidential candidates in his district, including those made by Kentucky Sen.
So far, Trump has earned former President Ronald Reagan’s (1981-89) label as teflon, becoming this election’s “Teflon Don” even after his many controversial remarks including those during and after the first GOP primary debate. “His word is always good!” wrote Trump, whose unorthodox campaign is dominating the race and summertime polls. “It must be a pretty picture”, he said to her. “You dropping to your knees”.
When asked by interviewers, Trump said he would not apologize to Kelly. I assured him that we will continue to cover this campaign with fairness & balance.
Trump also leads in New Hampshire with 18 per cent, a poll from the Boston Herald and Franklin Pierce University found. Meanwhile Jeb Bush, former governor of Florida, has 12 per cent.
In her CBS interview, Fiorina said she would continue “talking to as many voters as I can”, and stressing her status as a political outsider. “I want to run as a Republican But I do want to keep that door open in case I don’t get treated fairly”.
Playing up his unique experience as a neurosurgeon, Carson insisted he was the only one on stage “to take out half of a brain – although you would think, if you go to Washington, that someone had beat me to it”.
