Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” while Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was defending his comments about Megyn Kelly bleeding he said he
When asked if he would apologize Trump said, “No, there’s nothing to apologize. she asked a very, very — I thought very unfair question, and so did everybody on social media. And I answered the question very well. I won every poll on debates, Time magazine, Drudge, Newsmax, every poll. People thought I won the debate easily. It’s sort of an interesting thing, They did not like the way I was questioned. And I understand that. I just want to get on. But what I said was totally appropriate. There was nothing wrong. Only a deviant, and I literally mean that, only a deviant would think anything other than that.”
Host Chuck Todd continued to press Trump: “You have a tenancy of disparaging woman on looks. I found 10 instances, sometimes in your books, your Twitter feeds when you went after people like Bette Midler and others. This is what some people find offensive, Mr. Trump, you go to looks. It’s a disparaging thing. It’s something out of ‘Mad Men,’ sir.”
Trump replied, “I will say this. I was attacked by the people that you talk about. I was attacked viciously by those people. I don’t mean a little bit, I mean viciously. When I’m attacked, I fight back, but I was attacked viciously by those women. Of course it’s very hard for them to attack me on looks, because I’m so good looking. But I was attacked very viciously by those women. And frankly, again, we get back to the words political correctness. Am I allowed to defend myself? What they said about me is far worse than what I said about them.”
