Thursday in Cleveland at the first Fox News Republican presidential debate, front-runner Donald Trump went after Fox News host Megyn Kelly for asking about sexist comments on Trump’s Twitter account.
Kelly asked, “You’ve called women you don’t like fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals. On your Twitter account, your Twitter account has several disparaging comments about women’s looks.”
Trump said, “Only Rosie O’Donnell”
Kelly continued, “No, it wasn’t. You once told a contestant on Celebrity Apprentice that it would be a pretty picture to see her on her knees. Does that sound like the temperament of a man we should elect as president?”
Trump shot back, “I think the big problem this country has is being politically correct. I’ve been – I’ve been challenged by so many people and I don’t frankly have time for total political correctness. And to be honest with you, this country doesn’t have time either. This country is in big trouble. We don’t win anymore. We lose to China and Mexico in trade at the border. We lose to everybody. Frankly what I say and often times it’s fun, kidding, we have a good time. What I say is what I say. And honestly, Megyn if you don’t like it, I’m sorry. I’ve been very nice to you, although I could probably not be based on the way you have treated me. But I wouldn’t do that.”
