Even though the first GOP primary debate was days ago, the nation is still talking about it. Fox News knew EXACTLY what was going to happen and they got it served up on a Trump-sized platter. You should have just stuck a couple of white, leather couches up there, served everyone champagne and had Andy Cohen moderate the whole thing, because it was 100% D-R-A-M-A. The Real Housewives Reunion had about as much substance as the GOP debate.
I think we all agree, the best part was the Megyn Kelly/Donald Trump exchange. After the exchange, Trump said about Kelly, “You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes,” Trump said during an interview with CNN’s Don Lemon on Friday night. “Blood coming out of her wherever.”
Social media has gone CRAZY for days over this quote. Donald Trump said Megyn Kelly asked him questions that made him mad, because she was on her period! Oh snap! I was about to get my angry typing on and rip him a new one and then I starting thinking about this quote and couldn’t stop laughing.
But Aimee – he said she was on her period. That’s so offensive to women. Where is your feminist anger and rants that we’ve all come to love?
If you read the quote, he first said she had blood coming out of her eyes. I’m a woman and I had my period for many years. Never ONCE did blood come out of my eyes. If you are a woman and you are having your period and blood starts coming out of your eyes – GO SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION IMMEDIATELY. I know I’m not a doctor, but trust me something is seriously wrong.
Second – he said blood is coming out of her “whatever.” I know many of us have special names for our girl parts – even Oprah called hers a vajayjay, but I’ve never heard it termed a “whatever” before. If there are people in America calling a vagina a “whatever” now is NOT the time to consider defunding Planned Parenthood. We need all the sexual education we can get in this country.
I do agree, however, that Trump is NOT an expert on women menstruating. Here is how I picture him dealing with his wife’s time of the month. Wife #3- “Honey I don’t feel so good. I think it’s that time of the mon…”
Trump interrupts mid-sentence, “Go grab one of the Trump jets and pick one of my resorts. Rest there until your womanly time is over. Make sure you go to the spa and have a mud bath, seaweed scrub and full body massage. Come back to me when you are 100%. See you in a week to ten days. By that time I’ll have made another 15-20 million.”
I don’t think he was saying Megyn Kelly was on her period, he was trying to say she was angry. I think he just completely fumbled whatever quote he was trying to say for her being angry. Like this for example, “Trump isn’t the smartest knife in the picnic basket.” You know what I was trying to say, but I messed the whole thing up. That is what we will now be calling a Trumpism.
Here is what everyone seems to be missing. What he did after the debate was retweet (basically endorse) people calling Megyn Kelly a bimbo. Let that sink in for a moment. He doesn’t like questioning from her during a debate, so he allows people to call her a bimbo. Trump has a history of this when it comes to women who challenge him.
Fast forward for a moment and lets say for shits and grins that he wins the presidency (I’ll hang on for those of you who need to go barf just thinking about that.) The reality is that there are powerful women leaders that he will have to negotiate with. How’s it going to play if he gets angry and calls Angela Merkel a bimbo?
The Fox News debate was a political piece of cake. He’s in the spotlight, with an audience of people who all agree with the politics of the people on stage. You can’t get an easier set up and he still lost his composure. He was riding the bike with training wheels and he couldn’t stay on it. Wait until the training wheels come off and he’s in a debate against a Democrat with an audience who isn’t friendly. Politically correct or not, is this who you want for President?
For those who support Trump – look at his website. I’ve asked this question many times and I’ll continue to ask it. If he’s a serious candidate what’s his plan? There isn’t an issues section on his website. He doesn’t discuss anything in detail except to say he gets ratings and runs successful businesses. He’s going to make America great again.
Unfortunately running a business is not the same as running the country. Maybe he’s going to roll out his details in 9 pm variety show on NBC? That will get great ratings.
I’ve been asked why do I care? Let Trump run and he’ll lose to Hillary. In politics, nothing is certain. I like good politics on both sides and I like a strong election. I am a Democrat, and I want a Democrat to win, but there is always the chance that might not happen. If that’s the case, I want a good candidate on the Republican side that is what is best for America. Trump isn’t it. Calling a woman a bimbo for a line of questioning that you don’t like isn’t being anti-politically correct – it’s just wrong.
