Donald Trump On Megyn Kelly: There Was Blood Coming Out Of Her Wherever

  • LADY MABELINE

    Donald Trump personifies the filth that is the Tea Party.

    • Gerry Fisher

      Infantile, fear-based acting out, whose leaders leverage it for personal gain. Only the Donald isn’t afraid of anything.

      • People4Humanity

        Rather like a fierce lesbian.

      • CanuckDon

        He’s a nervy loose cannon. I’m not sure just how someone gained such a crazy high opinion of himself but it seems to totally blind him from portraying the fool and any wrongdoing. He’s a good match for Putin….a love match actually.

    • Justin

      He is filth. This is just loathsome.

  • medaka

    And that little outburst got Trump disinvited from the big Redstate Teabagger party. And he is furious. Heh!

    • clay

      Was it Gingrich who got flack for talking about women menstruating in the military?

    • ScottJL

      Chuckle, as if this will hurt him? He’ll turn it to his advantage by trashing them too.

      • Gerry Fisher

        It’s just another unfair attack on a poor guy who’s simply trying to share his awesomeness with the world. No choice but to attack back hard!

        I mean, if there was a *hint* that this was an act and the man had any kind of decency behind the facade, he’d be as funny as the Colbert Report, and I could laugh along with him. But he’s not joking.

  • Wynter Marie Starr

    Isn’t he classy? He doesn’t have enough green to cover up his very off-putting vulgarity. And this is what the right wants? He has yet to learn that one can’t operate a country in the same manner one operates a business.

    • clay

      How to operate a business: sell off your father’s name to inflate the fortune he gave you, hiring personal advisers who are as angry and unstable are you are, while running the business into the ground, abandoning employees.

      How to lead a country: rely on name recognition to inflate your position, offer cabinet posts to people as angry and unstable as you are, while running the education, health and transportation systems into the ground, cutting off residents from basic resources.

      Sounds like Trump is their nominee.

      • Wynter Marie Starr

        They don’t seem to realize that diplomacy and compromise are needed skills. Trump is a bully. And while that works if you’re the boss of a company, it doesn’t work when you work for 300 million plus.

        • clay

          Frankly, I don’t think it works if you’re the boss of a company.

          • Wynter Marie Starr

            Perhaps not, but if you own the company, you can be as big of an asshole as you like. I tend to agree with you, however; those that treat their employees with respect are better companies to work for and likely have better trained and more loyal people.

          • Aquaria

            Business filth has to be more subtle in screwing people over, and do it with a smile on their face–while getting the guy they’re screwing over to have a smile on his that will slump into a wail of anguish five seconds after leaving the boardroom when he finally realizes that sticky feeling in his pants is the blood from his rape.

            That very thought is what makes the winner smile so long before and after the transaction.

            This is why CEOs are all–ALL–psychopaths.

      • Gerry Fisher

        “People, we should be looking for more than just being entertained.”

        • B Snow

          But we’re Americans! We want to be entertained, and we’ll pay well for it. (And if Trump gets elected, boy, will we pay for it….)

    • B Snow

      CEO = President is pretty much the same platform Ross Perot ran on, but with less vulgarity. Of course, Ross isn’t nearly coarse enough for today’s conservative base.

  • ScottJL

    She takes some of the blame sure, but she didn’t come up with the script herself, blame Fox for that.

    • Gerry Fisher

      Soooooo…someone running for President shouldn’t be asked if his consistent use of “fat pig” and “you look better on your knees” toward women might not be so presidential? That’s her fault?

      (some) women are pushing a petition to have Megyn Kelly out of any upcoming debate, saying she was mean to their King.

      • clay

        Who else are they suggesting to replace her? Phyllis Schlafly?

        • SpiderPIG

          Did she pose for Maxim?
          They are tweeting pictures as a “proof she has no reason to say Trump objectifies women”.
          As if she should be behind of a burka instead.

          • clay

            Oh, so they’d prefer Ann Coulter.

            Ann has endorsed him.

            Well she is a lawyer and I don’t think she is anti gay marriage.

          • NedFlaherty

            Phyllis Schlafly and Ann Coulter are both anti-LGBT in general, and anti-same-gender civil marriage specifically.

        • Eebadee-eebadee-thatsallfolks

          In today’s Republican party, Phyllis Schlafly is a RINO. Maybe Lucretia Borgia, Eva Braun or Lizzie Borden would satisfy them? Or Carrie Nation?

      • StraightGrandmother

        Where is the counter petition for me to sign?

    • KCMC

      consistent

      • Gerry Fisher

        mmm-hmmm! mind numbingly so.

    • StraightGrandmother

      That is what he always does. He never speaks that he doesn’t elevate himself and denigrate others.
      To say that Megyn Kelly was out of line because she was on her period is the height of misogyny. It’s flabbergasting.

      And she was no harder on Trump than she was on Walker saying, “Honestly you would have a woman die rather than have an abortion?”

      Think about what he said. That Megyn Kelly was out of line because she was on her period. I just can’t adequately describe my outrage. It is an attack on women. Men are up here, women are down here. It’s outrageous. I hope to hell he gets the nomination. We’ll slaughter him in the voting booth.

      • bkmn

        Be glad you aren’t one of his wives. No amount of money would be worth putting up with that shit.

        • clay

          I’m imagining he requires ultra-Orthodox segregation and cleansing rituals of his wives. And since he doesn’t bother to keep them around past menopause . . .

          • What?

            Ultra-Orthodox segregation? Trump is Protestant, I believe – but I wouldn’t put sequestering his wives past him anyway.

            Trump is a perfect example of what I’ve long said: the real misogynists are not gay men, as homophobes love to say. They are straight men like Trump who see women as disposable, going from one to the other.

          • clay

            They must be out of contact during menstruation (segregation) and must partake in mikvah (cleansing ritual) before returning to society.

            I bet he has an unrealistic fear of menstrual blood.

      • ZhyKitty

        Too angry to form proper words.
        Well said.

        • RemusL

          Don’t waste your time and energy being angry at him. Just get out the popcorn.

          I rarely have anything positive to say about Megyn Kelly because she herself knowingly caters to and feeds the bigoted voter base that is Fox’s core audience. However, maybe this experience with Trump and his rabid like-minded supporters will finally get her and other conservative women to see the light. Nah, who am I kidding? They all love their comfortable privileged positions in society too much to rock the gravy boat.

      • LADY MABELINE

        This man knows no shame. He has turned our entire political debate into a spectacle. We are a laughingstock.

        • ScottJL

          No, we (the people) turned it into a spectacle by allowing these “debates” to turn into a circus. Fox is raving about the ratings, we’re the ones who tuned in.

          • LADY MABELINE

            I completely agree.

          • GayOldLady

            Well, in all fairness, it was Fox News that decided the format, it was Fox News that picked the questions, it was Fox News that decided which contestants qualified and it was people who describe themselves to pollsters as “Likely GOP Voters” that drove the polls that were used to pick the debaters. I watched because I wanted to see/hear whoever the candidate will be that goes against the Democratic Nominee. And I will continue to watch.

          • ScottJL

            And that’s fine, but it simply feeds the machine.

            In all fairness, it wasn’t Fox who started this mess, the debates became a spectacle years ago. The viewers, perpetuate it.

          • Ontogenesis

            I watched so I could play a drinking game. So were all the others in the bar (one guy even flipped the TV off — this is Seattle after all). The “24 million” number probably includes a lot of people who want the Rethugs to fail. Know thy enemy and all that.

          • NMNative

            Nope, didn’t tune in. We don’t watch Fox, period. Got all the delightful details from reading about it here.

          • B Snow

            The only time I’ve watched Fox of my own free will was on election night 2008. I was afraid another network would call it for Obama early and then they’d be wrong and I’d be sick with disappointment. But I figured Fox would not call it for Obama unless there was absolutely no doubt he’d won.

          • Webslinger

            Not me!

        • SpiderPIG

          Just take a look at hundreds of supporting replies to his tweets. He has a mad following, they are all insane. Some only speak using the same catchphrases he came up with, as if they can’t even think for themselves.

          • Dramphooey

            I noticed the same thing with the Palin people in 2011. “Alley cat smart.” “Nobody has been more thoroughly vetted.” “Sun Tzu!”

        • Gigi

          I’m not laughing.

        • lymis

          I agree in part and disagree in part.

          The Republican Party turned out entire political debate into a laughingstock, and these are the fruits of the seeds they sewed when they climbed in bed with the Religious Right.

          Trump didn’t create this. In some ways, by taking it to the extremes he is, he’s highlighting how very broken things are. There is no excuse for someone like him to even be considered as a presidential candidate, much less for him being the front-runner of a major party at any point in the process.

          But he’s a symptom, not a cause. A puffed up, self-important, pustulent and socially embarrassing symptom, but more a symptom nonetheless.

          • clay

          • LADY MABELINE

            Excellent point.

        • Webslinger

          Actually WE as a Nation have ALLOWED 17 candidates to possibly run for the nomination that is the REAL shame…

      • Gerry Fisher

        He’s the perfect representative of a culture suffering from narcissism. He’s awesome, he’s always right, all actions are designed to market and promote himself, if you like him you’re great, if you don’t or if you get in the way then you’re incompetent and an awful human being worthy of vicious and personal insult.

        Repeat ad nauseam. The story isn’t Donald Trump. The story is that our people have enabled him to get this far. Talk about disgusting.

        • Michael Abbett

          The Republicans used to talk about personal responsibility, but they have degenerated into a party that wants to have free access to all the guns they can afford yet not be held accountable when innocent children die. They are all for free markets without regulation yet don’t want to be blamed for climate change, oil spills, fracking earthquakes, etc. Then they blame Obama for the fallout of the economic crisis that Bush started due to the deregulation of the financial and housing industries, two unnecessary wars and a prescription drug plan that wasn’t paid for. They want to be free to start and run their businesses as they please yet lobby for every piece of corporate welfare and tax waiver they can get, offshore their profits when they succeed but declare bankruptcy and leave the taxpayers to clean up their mess when they fail. They want to live in a world where they are free to harass minorities, women, gays, etc. without impunity, but no, never question their sincerity about their commitment to personal responsibility. They do not realize how the rest of us have begun to comprehend the level of entitlement they operate from and how deeply we resent them for it.

      • olandp

        Lets be careful in defending Meagan, remember she is a horrible on air “talent”, even if the Donald is full of fart gas.

        • clay

          She’s horrible at her job. He isn’t even doing his job.

        • SpiderPIG

          Yes, I know, I feel divided, I hated how she handled the Duggars interview.
          But I find myself surprisingly siding with her, specially when the Trumpers use her Maxim spread to claim she has no right to use the expression “war on women”.

        • GayOldLady

          To my mind his behavior toward her has nothing to do with how well she does her job. I don’t like Megyn’s on-air personality or her politics, but her question was relevant and Trump’s answer and his attitude toward Kelly afterward, was boorish, threatening and sexist.

          • olandp

            I agree, they are both horrible in their own unique ways.

        • JT

          A particular kind of attack is being denounced here. She’s not being defended against other other well deserved criticisms. But that point does need to be made, you’re right.

      • GayOldLady

        To bring the menstrual cycle into the debate shows that Donald Trump has no class whatsoever. I thought the question was a fair question just as Chris Wallace’s question about “bankruptcy” was a fair question. In case Donald hasn’t noticed almost 51% of the population is female and he obviously STILL hasn’t learned how to have a conversation with us. He see’s women as only good on their knees or their back. There may be a smattering of women that will support & defend him, but mark my word, the vast majority of women were totally turned off to his condescension toward Megyn and his disrespect toward women.

        • StraightGrandmother

          I was going to make a vulgar comment about what it like to be his wife and what he expects of her 3x a day but I thought better of it.

          Can you imagine if this is what he says publicly what he expects of his wives privately when nobody else is listening and the power imbalance of his marriages? Ivanka was right to run away like her hair was on fire. Ivanka was right to leave that bastard.

          • clay

            age, income, immigration status, educational attainment

            OF COURSE he likes the power imbalance.

          • GayOldLady

            I’m certain that most women who watched that spectacle of misogyny had the exact same thoughts about his wife/wives.

          • SpiderPIG

            To my complete horror, I saw women defending him on CNN and MSNBC last night.

          • Taylor

            Yes, both his former wives were no doubt justified in leaving him. But, ( this is offered not in criticism but for accuracy) his 1st wife’s name is Ivana – His daughter’s name is Ivanka.

          • StraightGrandmother

            Ivana, you are right, I mixed that up.
            Remember when he said that Angelina Jolie was no great beauty? He said she was pretty but he did not consider her a great beauty, and if I remember right, like his daughter who is a great beauty. He has a long history of going after women and criticizing their appearance.

          • olandp

            He couldn’t get it up three times a day (it’s been a while since I could!). I hate to point out that Ivanka is his “fashion model/designer” daughter, Ivana was his first “top” wife.

          • RemusL

            Freudian slip perhaps. ;1
            But Trump did once make a crass joke about how if Ivanka weren’t his daughter, he might be dating her. Yuck!

          • JulieBL

            Holy shit.

          • Michael Abbett

            His true believers eat this with a ladle. They hate everyone who isn’t straight, white and male as much as they fear and resent intelligence. There’s a VAST population of dumb Americans that enjoy this kind of frat boy bluster, and there’s no bottom to how low he can sink in their eyes and get away with it. They don’t care that he can’t possibly beat Hillary, he appeals to their reptilian brains on a very deep level. They feel validated, and are just naive enough to believe that if they get behind a billionaire with a big mouth, somehow that wealth is going to magically deliciously rub off on them someday, when in reality people like him only care about themselves.

          • clay

            and the Wharton students just returned in their annual migration to my neighborhood. 🙁

          • Yup: exactly what my (somewhat liberal but still countrified) best friend keeps trying to say: that we supposedly “need people who will tell it like it is and not be so politically correct, since that’s what all pols do these days”…

            Um, like that would work in diplomatic situations. Try going in and talking like this to the leader of Iran…yeah, right. Let’s put in people who have NO idea how to work in government…THAT is smart… #headdesk

            Then saying that he buys into the “Clinton Plant” conspiracy…methinks the Rasp-berr-ita was getting to him last night. This filth was coming from someone who can be a Perdue level of socialist/communist, at times. #Annoying

          • Randy Left Brooklyn

            Donald Trump is 69 years old. If his wife is expected to have sex 3 times a day she has it with a bevy of other guys.

            As for Ivana, years after their divorce she continued to work for him, and they remained friends. She fully understood the program she was signing up for and had no problem with it.

          • StraightGrandmother

    • Adam Schmidt

      There was another issue and it’s been totally overlooked. Go back and watch that segment again… listen as Megyn Kelly reads off the list of things he’s called women and you’ll hear the audience laugh as she reads each one before Trump even calls out Rosie. of course that one gets the big laughs even as Megyn is being insulted as a woman while trying to point out that trump is insulting to women.

      This was the gay soldier moment of this debate and I haven’t seen anyone point it out.

      • Webslinger

        just strip off the veneer a tiny bit and there is still rampant sexism and racism especially from men with perceived POWER…the audience loves it because they FINALLY get permission from a higher power that it is OK to laugh and relish in what was once a closed door issue…

          Isn’t that the Palin bunch brawling? /s

  • SpiderPIG

    After seen “Women for Trump” defending him after the debate, saying that Megyn Kelly was out of line, I’ve became desensitized.
    I am convinced that everything is possible.

    • clay

      Some women have internalized fear/hatred of being thought of as a bitch that they attack any woman who appears strong or angry (even if it’s righteous anger). I think of it like a straight female version of internalized homophobia.

      • GayOldLady

        That’s true Clay. I remember during the Civil Rights movement that there was a very small percentage of African-American’s who wanted no part of it. There were people in the LGBT community that wanted to keep the status quo. And there are women who want their interests to remain subservient or secondary to the interests of men. There has always been a segment of the minority or the less powerful population that will take the side of the powerful because they want to hedge their bet.

    Trump spokespeople have now said that the remarks were inappropriate and that he meant to say “blood coming out of her whatever [instead of “wherever”].” Uh huh. That makes a big difference.

    Asswipe people around an asswipe candidate, “interpreting” bullshit with more bullshit.

    • bkmn

      Sounds a lot like Rinse Pubics and the rest of the GOP.

      • Rinse Pubics and the Bloody Wherevers! The new right-wing rock band! 😀

    • clay

      Doesn’t matter if it was where or what– Trump spokesman has already said it was a reference to menstruation.

      • JT

        That would make the “correction” even more ridiculous.

  • olandp

    “…out of her where ever.” So she was on the rag?

    I must say that I agree she is not a journalist and a horrible on air “talent”.

        I had to look that up .well worth it. Dirges is perfectly on point.

  • Jack

    He’s unstable and therefore unreliable. I can see, sort of, “blood coming out of her eyes” as a mishmash of “daggers coming out of her eyes” and “going for blood.” If he’d left it at that, he might have gotten away with explaining that he meant that she was out to get him — leaving him to then explain how she was any harder on him than on any of the other clowns, er, candidates (see, I knew I wanted a word that started with “c”). But he kept on talking.

    • JustSayin’

      I think you may be under counting the outer edge of republican party membership. Even faux news rated him as the winner of the debate.

      The best gift to Hillary would be for him to run as a third party candidate. He has the ability to pull 20 to 40 percent of the likely voters in the republican base. His antics would hopefully spur a great many of the liberals who will stay home or vote for a Democratic third party to do the right thing to keep the white house out of the republican control.

      If they get control all three, the progress we have made will be wiped away and SCOTUS stacked against us for decades to come.

    • Steven Leahy

      Agree on him ruining his chances, but I think he will solidify support among those who love him and lose it among those who are put off by a brash and obnoxious personality. Either way it will fragment the republican party. His arrogance might be a good thing here because if he’s not nominated he might run on his own just out of ego, which which split our enemies and likely mean a win for us.

      • B Snow

        Yes, please.

  • gaymex

    Trump is such an embarrassment and I have been asked about him so many times that I have started telling strangers that I am Canadian.
    How is it possible for anyone to think he would make a good president? Had he not inherited money for his initial leg up, he would barely make it as a ditch digger in the deep South. In my book, he’s right there with Leona Helmsley in his lack of respect for anything other than self and money. As president he would do what he wanted, legal or not, then pardon himself. I took out the garbage this morning and the kid who carried it to the truck would make a better and more compassionate leader. I would certainly trust him more. He would at least respect women, if nothng else.

    • TJay229

      Hold up…

      You leave Donald Trump alone… He is EXACTLY what we need. We need him to get angry enough to run 3rd party or become the nominee.. Guaranteeing DEMS win.

      So, you just BACK OFF OF TRUMP, let him talk as much as he wants.

      We have our share of Trump fans here in Canada. I’m reading a globalnews.ca comment thread (http://globalnews.ca/news/2153257/trump-drags-rosie-odonnell-into-debate-calls-megyn-kelly-a-bimbo/ ) and have come across a Canadian Trump minion who writes stuff like this:

      “Can’t stump the Trump! Global “news” tries to make it look like everyone hates him with handpicked tweets from people that will always dislike him. Trump is an enigma to the establishment (that includes the media). We could use a strong leader up here to break up the terrible status quo in Ottawa.”

      “Isn’t it scarier that Americans put a community organizer turned career politician in that position? Trump has been successfully running multi billion dollar businesses for decades!”

      “Acting presidential? Like Obama, Clinton, Bush and those stooges on the stage with him the other night?? I’ll take Trump, thanks!”

      “Everyone is attacking him with all they have so naturally, he fights back with fire. This is not a effeminate man like Obama. He’s a real leader!! Trump 2016!”

      • RoFaWh

        There’s a subtle misrepresentation in that line about “running businesses”. Today we hear (gawd help us all!) about “running government like a business”, but that’s not what the meme originally said. It started off as “running government in a business-like way”, meaning in particular running government so you know where the money is coming from and where it’s going; in business, that’s called knowing your profit and loss centers.

        But government is not a business and cannot be run “like a business.” It has coercive powers that no business has, a completely captive market with no competition, no need to make even token gestures towards “customer service,” and many other characteristics that make it sui generis.

    • Steven Leahy

      He has that arrogant psychosis a lot of extremely wealthy CEO’s have….a sense of ultra-entitlement and complete insensitivity and intolerance to ANYone who doesn’t share his exact agenda.

      • RoFaWh

        Not only his exact agenda, but also a similar amount of money.

        Your use of “psychosis” is spot on.

      • StraightGrandmother

        Actually the way he speaks, I always have the feeling that he is out on a golf course and this is how he talks with his golfing buddies. Talks about women in a strictly T & A manner, the egoists dropping hints, “I’m richer than you are.”
        He is so rich white straight male private club I honestly don’t see the attraction.

        • Cuberly

          Trump and Rush are practically interchangeable in the golf course, men’s club misogyny dept.

      • Aquaria

        CEOs are well-known for being just as much of psychopaths as serial killers.

      Yeah. A similar line is “I’m just being honest” as an excuse for saying mean, cruel, hurtful things. “I’m sorry if anyone is offended” is closely related, too. Lots of slimy people around these days.

  • Rebecca Gardner

    Hey, I don’t like Megyn Kelly either, but I have really fucking had it with the extreme amounts of misogyny in our country today. I’m really really pissed off about it.

    • Webslinger

      just strip off the veneer a tiny bit and there is still rampant sexism and racism especially from men with perceived POWER…

    • i am too. but still, i am laughing. Kelly deserves this, the sellout that she is. how any woman, ethnic/racial or sexual minority could work for Faux is beyond me.

      “lay down with dogs, get up with fleas.” sorry bitch, but that’s just life.

      it hardly matters; her future, finances and career are assured no matter what happens over the next few weeks. she’s a Villager.

  • Robincho

    SPY Magazine was on to this twisted fuck decades ago, calling him a short-fingered vulgarian… Would that tRump were toast instead of SPY Magazine…

  • Steven Leahy

    On the one hand I do think she took a cheap shot at him but on the other, candidates’ histories are real and relevant and a window into how they will view the people they’ll be committed to lead and represent. I think they all had it coming.

    • James

      It was not a cheap shot. A man who proudly displays his rampant misogyny is running for president. That’s entirely relevant.

      • Steven Leahy

        Read my post again, since apparently you stopped after the first line.

        That said, I’m interested in candidates’ positions on issues and not letting it degenerate into tabloid journalism. This so-called debate sucked.

        Edited to add: Oh and BTW nearly EVERY candidate on that stage has said something abhorrent about some demographic, and most of them with US as the target, yet the only person called out on it was Trump with Rosie O’Donnell. Maybe they should have had a debate-round were all of them were questioned about some offensive thing they said.

        • James

          It was not a cheap shot. I’ve no idea why you’d say that if you claim not to believe it.

          • Steven Leahy

            Oh since I think he has a valid point (about being singled out) now I support his position? In the THOUSANDS of posts I have contributed to this blog, its pretty clear I don’t like Trump OR what he stands for, or anyone LIKE Trump, but I don’t think he should be held to a different standard than anyone else because one of the moderators has a personal axe to grind.

            I tried to explain this to you but you clearly don’t understand, so here goes again.

            She singled out Trump for a comment she was clearly angry about. I’m not suggesting she shouldn’t have been angry about it but it was personal for her. While it may make her angry, she’s also moderating a debate and I think the questioning should be consistent and it wasn’t.

            On the other hand, NOBODY was called to the carpet for some horrific things many of them have said over the years, and usually about LGBT people. Huckabee is a great example of that – evil personified.

            Call Trump out for his comments, fine, agreed – but do it to everyone else, too.

            Do you get it? It’s about consistency and evenhandedness in questioning, and not attacking one candidate while you give others a pass. Trump should have been called to answer for his comments on Mexican immigrants too – he wasn’t.

          • James

            The really amusing thing is that you had any expectation that this debate was going to be run in an “evenhanded” manner. But stop and think about what you’re arguing here: a man who is running for president and who has a long history of misogyny is asked a question about it during a debate. He thinks (and you agree) that this was unfair because the others weren’t asked about their histories of misogyny as well–as though that makes it any less a relevant question. A more skilled debater could easily have deflected that question, and might even have turned it back on Kelly by pointing out that other people on the stage have faced similar accusations, but Trump was only interested in trying to make a joke of it. He should be angry about his own performance, not the fact that every single person on the stage didn’t get asked exactly the same questions.

          • Steven Leahy

            I’m not arguing whether he handled it well or not but let’s not kid ourselves, this was not a “debate’ which implies presentation of an issue to multiple candidates and they go back and forth to convince those watching why their positions are right. This was nothing more than a pathetic reality TV show and inconsistent and targeted interrogation – some given a pass and others, not. I didn’t see much in the way of issues being presented at all.

          • James

            Well, yeah, but it was never going to be anything else.

        • LonelyLiberal

          I would watch the shit out of that.

          The problem is, if it were comprehensive, we’d need 24-7 ongoing round table coverage with constantly rotating guests. These people can’t be nice to save their lives.

          • Steven Leahy

            True.

    OIC: she was being a “bitch” because “it’s that time of month.” Classic. Guess he doesn’t need any women voting for him and I imagine this is how he talks to all the women in his life.

  • ColdCountry

    The arrogance and self-promotion are stunning, not to mention the misogyny. Does he think women don’t vote? Does he think Hispanics don’t vote? Does he think absolutely everyone but himself is a loser?

    • Steven Leahy

      a) he doesn’t care
      b) no – meaning yes he doesn’t think they do or CAN
      c) YES

    • skeptical_inquirer

      I think he’s appealing to a base that is just as self-serving and misogynistic and knows it. To put it bluntly there’s a reason why Faux News has all those blonds.

      • ColdCountry

        Does he really think they are the majority though? Really? (They can’t be, can they?)

        • skeptical_inquirer

          Maybe they’re not the majority of the voters in the general election but there’s a way higher percentage of them when it comes to primaries for the Republicans. This does leave them with the unfortunate (though self-inflicted) problem of having to tack to the center after having to go right for so many months.

          • ColdCountry

            I have a couple of friends who are long-time Republicans – economically, not socially – who are beside themselves with the party. They have both said that if – beyond all reason – Trump gets the nomination that they will not only just not vote for him, they will have to vote against him.
