After the Republican presidential candidate debate, Donald Trump sparked controversy when he said that Fox News host Megyn Kelley had “blood coming out of her whatever.” Donald said this as a response the to Megyn’s series of questions about Donald’s past insults regarding women.
However, on Sunday at NBC’s Meet The Press, Donald clarified that his comment was not about menstruation, which is what most people assumed he was referring to. This assumption even caused Erick Erickson to disinvite Trump to the RedState Gathering.
Donald clarified what he meant by his remarks, saying:
“All I said is, ‘There was blood—‘ essentially, ‘there was blood pouring out of her eyes and there was blood—‘ and then I said, you know what, I want to get onto the next sentence, because frankly I don’t have to talk about blood coming out of her ears and her nose. Which is a very common statement.”
Trump spoke further on the controversy, telling Todd:
“There’s nothing to apologize for. I thought she asked a very, very unfair question. What I said was totally appropriate, there was nothing wrong. Only a deviant, I literally mean that, only a deviant would think anything other than that. What I said was totally fine.”
Throughout the NBC interview, Trump remained unapologetic as he said, “I apologize when I’m wrong, but I haven’t been wrong.”
Towards the end of the NBC event, Trump assured interviewers, “I went to the Wharton School of Finance, the toughest place to get into. I was a great student. I don’t talk that way.”
Fox News correspondent Megyn Kelly has yet to comment on Trump’s remarks.
Either Trump is on damage control or he made a bad mistake in his choice of words. The Republican Party is going to have all of these attempted attacks on Trump backfire on them as it is only making him look like he’s being bullied by the party who loves to bully. For those that keep shaking their heads, saying Trump will never get the nomination, having the Republican Party keep pushing so hard to oust him, you might be shocked with the RNC Convention hits.
For the past few weeks the team behind Caitlyn Jenner’s docu-series I Am Cait have been leading audiences to believe that Caitlyn is trying to better understand her sexuality, and has put into question whether she is attracted to men or women.
However, sources have revealed that Caitlyn is still only attracted to women. This matches the confirmation she gave to her family when they asked during the Diane Sawyer interview. Apparently, Caitlyn is adamant on her sexuality, but realizes pretending to be confused and opening up the idea she may be attracted to men will boost the ratings.
In the recent sneak preview of I Am Cait, Caitlyn is seen saying she can “appreciate the male form.”
Caitlyn has been very open and honest about her journey and different obstacles she faces as she transitions into a woman. Therefore, it is easy to overlook the fact that many aspects of her show are probably orchestrated with ratings in mind.
However, she has been exposed for years to the media manipulation and marketing power of the Kardashian Empire, so she does know a thing or two about working a story.
