While crowds cheered Donald Trump’s misogyny at this week’s GOP debate, his suggestion yesterday that moderator Megyn Kelly had “blood coming out of her wherever” proved to be one ugly comment too far for fellow sexist Erick Erickson, who announced he was inviting Kelly to take Trump’s place at his influential RedState Gathering.
“His comment was inappropriate,” wrote Erickson on RedState.com late Friday night. “It is unfortunate to have to disinvite him. But I just don’t want someone on stage who gets a hostile question from a lady and his first inclination is to imply it was hormonal. It just was wrong.”
Less than 12 hours later, however, the Trump campaign fired back, releasing a statement calling Erickson “a total loser,” claiming that “only a deviant” would think Trump wasn’t talking about Kelly’s nose and saying he was “honored to be uninvited” from the 900-person event:
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. Only a deviant would think anything else. This related to the debate, which because of Mr. Trump had 24 million viewers—the biggest in cable news history. According to TIME, Newsmax, Drudge Report, The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Hill and many others, Mr. Trump won the debate,” the Trump campaign statement said.
By the way, the guy (Erick Erickson) who made the decision about RedState called Supreme Court Justice David Souter a “goat [expletive] child molester” and First Lady Michelle Obama a “Marxist Harpy.” He was forced to make a humbling apology.
Also, not only is Erick a total loser, he has a history of supporting establishment losers in failed campaigns so it is an honor to be uninvited from his event. Mr. Trump is an outsider and does not fit his agenda.
Many of the 900 people that wanted to hear Mr. Trump speak tonight have been calling and emailing—they are very angry at Erickson and the others that are trying to be so politically correct. To them Mr. Trump says, “We will catch you at another time soon.”
