Looks like The Donald has pissed off the stiffs with his debate antics Thursday and in a major way. He's been kicked out of Jackass Jackassson's shindig this weekend.
I have invited @MegynKelly to attend tomorrow night’s RedState Gathering event in place of Donald Trump.— Erick Erickson (@EWErickson) August 8, 2015
So there really is something Trump can do to get grounded, and that's go after FOX News's Megyn Kelly.
I have tried to give a great deal of latitude to Donald Trump in his run for the Presidency.
He is not a professional politician and is known for being a blunt talker. He connects with so much of the anger in the Republican base and is not afraid to be outspoken on a lot of issues. But there are even lines blunt talkers and unprofessional politicians should not cross.
Decency is one of those lines.
As much as I do personally like Donald Trump, his comment about Megyn Kelly on CNN is a bridge too far for me.
In a CNN interview, Mr. Trump said of 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.
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 “wherever.”
So, implying that Megyn Kelly was on her period was apparently the straw that broke the camel's back, not any of the other massively misogynist or racist or generally awful crap he's spouted.
OK Eric, whatever
