Donald Trump’s remarks after the debate might end up with him taking himself out. He might be the author of his own demise after all the efforts by others to “take him out”, or maybe not!
Donald Trump’s invitation to the RedState Convention was withdrawn yesterday and Megyn Kelly was invited in his place because of comments he made during an interview on CNN in which he said this in reference to Megyn Kelly: “You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her wherever.”
It was not the “blood coming out of her eyes” part that was the problem, Erick Erickson said.
I think there is no way to otherwise interpret Mr. Trump’s comment. In an attempted clarification, Mr. Trump’s team tells me he meant “whatever”, not “where ever.”
About nine o’clock this morning, Trump tweeted this:
Re Megyn Kelly quote: “you could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever” (NOSE). Just got on w/thought

Yesterday he called Kelly a bimbo. Before the debate he said he would remain on a “high level” but that was before Kelly hit him with a tmz-style attack question.

What do you think? Is Trump still in the running?
Update: “Mr. Trump made Megyn Kelly look really bad—she was a mess with her anger and totally caught off guard. Mr. Trump said ‘blood was coming out of her eyes and whatever,’ meaning nose, but wanted to move on to more important topics,” Trump’s campaign office said in a statement obtained by E! News, “Only a deviant would think anything else.”
Donald Trump had an opportunity to confront the issue on Face the Nation Sunday.
