Trump

Donald Trump has been fair game for everyone in the media and for his political opponents on both sides of the aisle. Many, perhaps most, feel he was not given a fair shake during the debates. He made controversial statements after the debate which resulted in Erick Erickson of RedState disinviting him from the RedState conference. Erickson made it more of an issue than the leftists at the beginning.

Trump said on 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.”

It’s been an opportunity for all his opponents on both sides of the aisle but was it harmless? Imagine someone saying it to you, would it be an issue?

Donald Trump had a chance to address his faux pas during a phone interview with Face the Nation Sunday.

As an aside, you know that “drop to the knees” comment he allegedly made to an Apprentice contestant, Brande Roderick? Popular Technology sent this my way:

“I actually didn’t even remember him saying that […] I’ve always had a positive experience around Donald. He’s always been encouraging. He’s never been disrespectful to me […] He treats his daughter like a princess.” ~ Brande Roderick

Broderick told MSNBC. “I don’t condone men being derogatory, but I think he’s just on television. He’s trying to be funny. He didn’t mean anything horrible by it.”

The attacks continue. It seems it might have upset women more. Carly Fiorina sees it as “offensive” and told Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that she doesn’t think you get anywhere by yelling at everyone.

She was more forceful on that issue during her interview with Jake Tapper.

Let us know what you think. We aren’t trying to sway anyone one way or the other.

Editor’s note: The Brande Roderick comment was added after publishing.

  1. It is the same as the “immigrant” controversy. In both cases, not only the lefty media and talkers are attributing things to him that he DID NOT SAY, but the lazy, accept-the-premise NON-lefty goody two-shoes go right along with the meme.
    I’m pretty sure I’ve heard the ‘blood in his eye’ quip before from people talking about someone out to get somebody, so Trump was referring to somebody out to get him. Taking the “wherever” and going “wink,wink” “We all KNOW where ‘wherever’ is” is a bridge too far. The conventional wisdom is that women who are menstruating can be grouchy, NOT that they are “out to get somebody”.
    Trump may be just as misogynistic, crude or whatever as everybody is saying he is. But if you have to “wink, wink, nod, nod” extrapolate it out of an offhand remark, when you ought to be talking about the issues, your professional integrity becomes the issue, not Trump’s nature.

  2. i think it’s much ado about nothing. Megan knew what she was doing. She got what she deserved, end of subject.

  3. At least Trump is honest, he says what he means and means what he says. I agree with the above^ she knew what she was doing and got what she deserved! There are also more important issues at hand. I think Trump handled every question well he did not have time to prepare like her. She was reading from a paper and come out there with the intentions to make him look bad.

  4. I thought Carly was the next Margaret Thatcher until she criticized this comment made by Trump. This is a big reveal. While it is feasible to technically qualify Trump’s comment as inappropriate, is it important enough to make it a big deal? The answer is an emphatic no. Megyn Kelly is a big girl and she knew what she was getting herself into when she attacked Trump. The only way this comment by Trump matters is if we need to be concerned about Trump hurting poor little Megyn’s feelings because she is a woman. Because. She. Is. A. Woman. That, my dear Carly, is sexism via lowered expectations. Carly is lowering her expectations of poor little Megyn’s resilience in the face of big bad Trump’s rhetorical onslaught. If poor little Megyn’s feelz were so badly hurt, she is completely at liberty to fire back with an insult of her own. In fact, Carly did a great job of returning fire for Megyn by asking, “Can we think of a single instance where a man’s hormones may have clouded his judgment?” Perfect response. Too bad Megyn didn’t make it. Too bad Carly thinks poor little Megyn is too dainty and fragile to fight her own battles. Megyn is a lead anchor on a highly successful news network. This is a campaign for President of the United States of America, not ballroom dancing. We can raise our expectations of Megyn a little bit higher Carly. Part of Iron Lady Thatcher’s charm was that she was not a feminist. Carly would do well to study Lady Thatcher’s fine example. Chuck this politically correct speech policing in the garbage Carly, it doesn’t become you.
