Megyn Kelly did Trump – and the GOP- a favor

Without a doubt Donald Trump is enjoying every minute of the attention being accorded him in his quixotic crusade for the Presidency. What Trump doesn’t like is being in a situation he can’t shout and bully his way out of and we all witnessed it in the GOP debate. As a review, here the Kelly-Trump confrontation:

Following the debate Trump exploded at Kelly

“You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever.”

Many interpreted that as a menstrual connotation, but Trump denied it.

There has been an amazing amount of fallout from that night and Trump’s supporters have been savaging Kelly.

Trump denied using the language Kelly spoke of but his memory seems impaired:

GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump said Friday he can’t recall using words such as “dog,” ”fat” and “disgusting” to insult women he believes have slighted him, but such language litters his Twitter feed and other public comments he’s made for years.

Then Trump went out and called Kelly both a “bimbo” and a “lightweight.” Then he added:

“She’s not very tough and not very sharp,” Trump said during a phone interview on CNN. “I don’t respect her as a journalist.”

She was tough enough to piss him off. More Trump comments:

In tweets sent last year, Trump called Huffington Post editor Arianna Huffington “a dog who wrongfully comments on me” and said she is “ugly both inside and out!”

In 2012, Trump wrote on Twitter of singer Bette Midler: “But whenever she sees me, she kisses my ass. She’s disgusting.”

Trump is a foul mouthed misogynist. I agree completely with Steve Hayes when he says this is not going to end well.

We assumed that at some point they’d embarrassed to be associated with him: If not his slander of Mexican immigrants, then perhaps his mockery of POWs; if not his kindergarten Twitter insults, then perhaps his sad and compulsive boasting; if not his incomprehensible answers to substantive questions at the debate, then maybe, finally, his juvenile and misogynistic put-down of the female moderator.

Trump is an insecure narcissist. All this would be great entertainment if Republican aspirations for the White House weren’t at stake.

Anyone who paid any attention to the debate knows that each of the candidates were asked an opening question specifically designed for them. Moreover, the questions were all aimed at a soft spot in the candidates. Dr. ben Carson was asked if he felt qualified to be President never having participated in politics. Trump was queried on his abusive language toward women.

It wasn’t off base. Trump used that language repeatedly. He is abusive and he is a bully.

Some circulate a petition seeking Kelly’s removal from future debates. It’s disappointing to see some conservative sites pile on Kelly. Some are trying to use an old interview of Kelly by Howard Stern to smear her.

It’s here if you want to listen. Kelly indulges in some salacious talk but spends most of the time parrying Stern’s usual perversions.

Yet, Kelly did Trump a favor, despite what I felt was at times high school repartee with her cohosts.

Does anyone think for one second that this would not have surfaced during a lengthy campaign?

Does anyone think for one second the left would have avoided bringing up the “Trump war on women” topic?

Wake up and smell the coffee.

If somehow Trump survives this, he’ll have been given a gift by being able to clear the air before the left smacks him with it. If Trump thinks this was tough, he better shop for a better set of big boy pants. The left will be body-slamming him like he’s never seen. What will he then threaten? Not to be nice to his opposition? Will he threaten to stop making political donations to democrats? One can only imagine the fusillade of boorish verbosity that would be loosed. Ultimately America would have but one response to Trump:

“Ya fyuhd!”

DrJohn has been a health care professional for more than 30 years. In addition to clinical practice he has done extensive research and has published widely with over 70 original articles and abstracts in the peer-reviewed literature. DrJohn is well known in his field and has lectured on every continent except for Antarctica. He has been married to the same wonderful lady for over 30 years and has three kids- two sons, both of whom are attorneys and one daughter on her way into the field of education. DrJohn was brought up with the concept that one can do well if one is prepared to work hard but nothing in life is guaranteed. Except for liberals being foolish.

    Who thinks Harry Reid would have escaped being reminded of his past decisions of Romney on the Senate floor?

    Who thinks Bill Clinton would not have to explain why we treat women “like shit.”

    @drjohn:

    Sorry, I disagree. I think it was a fair question. Had Chris Wallace asked it, I wonder if anyone would be outraged.

    Yeah, like asking a candidate if God “spoke to him” about running for POTUS.
    What does that have to do with the issues that Americans are concerned about? You know, things like our massive debt, riots in our streets, ISIS marching across the Middle East beheading Christians, the low work force numbers, our sluggish economy, Iran getting nuclear weapons, the invasion of illegals into our country and the crimes committed by them, the disaster train Social Security is on, a SCOTUS that is making law, not ruling on the Constitutionality of law passed by Congress, and dozens of other issues that have the security and stability of our nation threatened?

    Can you envision Megyn Kelly or Chris Wallace asking Hillary Clinton “Mrs. Clinton, your husband was a notorious womanizer and it has been claimed that you persecuted those women to save your husband’s hide. Isn’t that a case of the real “war on women?”

    Has there been any announcement that Dems are going to be debating on Fox news?
    I sure can’t imagine anyone at the ABCNBCCBSCNNMSNBS media complex ever asking her that.
    But Stephenopolus (sp? who cares?) had no problem asking Romney about banning birth control pills……
    “Governor Romney, do you believe that states have the right to ban contraception? Or is that trumped by a constitutional right to privacy?”

    I’m coming late to the party on this one but……If Obama is a puppy that loves to get his ‘tummy’ rubbed, Trump is a Junk Yard Mutt, loves to bark and bite. Right now we’re tired of the cute little puppy. Somewhere along the line we need a dog that will be a companion and a protector, I’m fairly sure that Trump isn’t that dog, plus he sheds a lot, especially with his history of sucking up to the dims. He is on records as wanting more control of ‘assault’ rifles…what the heck they are. As James #20 posted we’ve got 3 people that would give us some good combinations.
