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.
