Donald Trump doesn't understand why you think he has a problem with women.
Yes, he's referred to them as "fat pigs" and "disgusting animals," but he was really just referring to Rosie O'Donnell... and who has time for political correctness these days anyhow?
As for that comment about Megyn Kelly? In which it sounded as if Trump was saying the Fox News anchor was in an especially bad mood while moderating the Republican debate last Thursday night because she was on her period?
Please. Trump told Jake Tapper of CNN yesterday morning that he said and meant no such thing.
"Who would say that?" Trump responded to the backlash. "Do you think I'd make a statement like that? Who would make a statement like that?"
"Only a sick person would even think about that."
The statement in question involved Trump going off on Kelly the morning after last week's GOP debate, saying she held him to an unfair standard with her questions and saying she was acting as if blood was coming out of her eyes... or blood was coming out of her "wherever."
Most interpreted that line to be a menstrual cycle reference. And most were appalled by it.
“I cherish women,” Trump told Tapper, though, insisting he means blood was coming out of her “nose or ears” and adding:
"I have nothing against Megyn Kelly. I think her question was extremely unfair to me - her whole question was unfair to me."
But, in the end, only one thing matters to Donald Trump:
"On social media, I'm the one that's beloved."
