Donald Trump is continuing his war with Fox News host Megyn Kelly, in the wake of her piercing questions to him at Thursday night’s debate about his past comments about women. And now it looks as if he may be getting some high-profile support — from Fox News.

After Kelly asked Trump about calling women “fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals,” Trump infamously fired back last Friday night by saying of Kelly: “You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her — wherever,” a remark that has been widely interpreted as a remark about her menstrual cycle.

The Donald has since vociferously denied the allegation — saying that he was trying to describe blood also coming out her nose and ears — and that anyone who thinks it was about menstruation is the real deviant.

Trump called in to MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Monday, and said that it’s Kelly who should be apologizing to him — and that the whole story has been obviously rebounding to his benefit, anyway.

“My whole life has been led on the theory that I do not want to embarrass people. The fact is that I think I don’t think I get treated well by Fox — and that’s all right, because look what happens. I don’t understand it myself — I mean, I have double-digit leads in every poll.”

He also added: “You know it’s like, a lot of good things are happening. So maybe I should just leave it the way it is.”

“The fact is,” he continued, “she asked me a very inappropriate question. She should really be apologizing to me, you want to know the truth.”

Trump also described Kelly’s inquiry as a “stupid question” and “gibberish.” And he was quite eager to point out (correctly, by the way) that the crowd absolutely loved his comeback (that his derogatory remarks had only been directed at Rosie O’Donnell), and also that his very presence on the stage was what generated record TV audience ratings for a primary season debate.

In his latest move, Trump tweeted a link Monday morning to a NewsMax article that highlighted a 2010 appearance by Kelly on the Howard Stern show, in which she humorously participated in the Stern show’s brand of tawdry conversations, bantering about her sex life with her husband.

The Donald said the episode was evidence that he is the “pure” one, compared to Kelly:

Later Trump tweeted that he got a personal response from the head of Fox News, who has apparently decided not to stand by his employee:

    I agree. Donald Trump is a pure monster.

    Many thanks to him for confessing.

  • Trump is a monster, and is typical of the gop minions. Hillary still has my vote

      Given that his ratings have held strong and maybe have even improved after so many disgusting comments, only goes to show that there’s a large segment of pretty disgusting people living in America today (of course – the vast majority of them are today’s totally brainwashed conservatives).

    • Darsan54

      • FireBaron

          I was hoping that someone would ask him how he compensated all the employees who lost their jobs due to his gaming the system.

      You know, you simply cannot see pathology when it stares you in the face. Only when it begins to affect you in a negative way will you, maybe, see it for what it is. This is nothing ideological, not liberal, conservative, left or right. This is sickness, a personality disorder which should not be elevated to positions of authority that impact a nation and a world of people.

      History has known such individuals and nothing good came of it.

      Donald, like the other old white GOPers, is suffering from too much Viagra. You know, and erection lasting more than 4 hours.

    Everything about this article is awesome.

    😀 Trump knows exactly which buttons to push. The bottom dwellers of the party cheer him on and the traditional segment feigns outrage. However both feel the same way when it comes to wanting to put uppity women in their place.

      IS that what he did or do with wives?

    If anyone expects an apology from Trump for anything, or an admission that he could even have expressed himself in a better way, or done anything differently, please do not hold your breath.

    He is perfect, great, and really, really rich, and will always be the best in the room. Everyone else is flawed and less than he is. He has the money to prove it.

    He learned this lesson in childhood, attracting “friends” because of his father’s money; being tolerated in school with an obstructive and unruly behavior, because of his father’s money, until one school had the courage to deny re-admission and he was sent to a military type school by his father “to learn some discipline”, since, I suppose, he couldn’t get it at home. Too bad, in those days, no one suggested psychological evaluation.

    Narcissist Personality Disorder… apologies, never wrong, always the greatest, the best. Never is addressed with professional intervention until there is so much rejection and criticism that the individual becomes severely depressed, and seldom pursued or complied with, because the individual is always smarter than the stupid professional.

    “Management” of this disorder falls to those with whom this individual comports. Two choices: keep a safe distance and do not engage; or, placate, cater to, stroke, and feed it, indulge it, to mitigate any harm you may encounter while trying to benefit at the same time from it, in this case, perhaps, money and all money can buy, position, influence, and patronage, in which case, that choice is deserving of all of the pathos such a choice engenders.
