Hypocritical Woman Hating Republicans Boot Trump From Event Due To Megyn Kelly Comments

Megyn-Kelly_fox-News

After she raked him over the coals on live TV during Thursday evening’s Republican presidential primary debate, Donald Trump complained about Fox News’ Megyan Kelly to CNN’s Don Lemon Friday night, calling her a “lightweight” and saying, “You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her wherever.”

Allegedly as a result of these words, Woman-hater Erick Erickson has disinvited Donald Trump from a RedState Gathering of Republican presidential hopefuls in Atlanta Saturday.

Erickson, noting that Trump was blaming her hormones for Kelly’s questioning, cited a “line of decency” that had been crossed as his reason, but even noted that Trump had not been included in the “final” list for the event just days before.

Line of decency is a pretty flimsy excuse for Erick Erickson or really any conservative these days. Erickson is the person who, when working for CNN, called the DNC the “Vagina monologues”. Erickson likes to call women who speak their minds “FemiNazis” and “ugly feminists”. Erickson stomped his feet about the Masters, saying they were a place for only men and he liked it that way. Erickson’s treatment of women has been so bad that Ultra Violet started a petition to get him fired from CNN.

“Blood coming out of her wherever” was the coup de grâce of Trump’s 24 hour post-debate pity fest. Trump also called Megyn Kelly “angry”, which most women recognize as being misogynist for “strong”, and a “bimbo”.

Saturday morning Trump tried to explain away the blood comment, tweeting, “Re Megyn Kelly quote: “you could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever” (NOSE). Just got on w/thought” This was accompanied by much whinging about political correctness, which is conservative for being held accountable for things they shouldn’t have said or done.

Republicans are looking for any way to destroy Trump with the base, and they found it by pitting their beloved Megyn Kelly against Trump during the “debate” on Thursday evening, during which Kelly confronted Trump about calling women “fat pigs” “disgusting animals” “dogs” and telling a woman she would look good on her knees.

Donald Trump wants to believe that hormones made Megyn Kelly ask him about his own words, but she was just doing her job as a moderator and as part of the Republican PR arm that is Fox News. Donald Trump is polling number one and the Republican Party can’t have that because Donald Trump is a disaster as a politician. Donald Trump can’t win the White House.

In reality, Trump’s crappy comments about women aren’t that far-fetched for the party that has repeatedly linked women to barnyard animals when discussing women’s health. Elected Republicans who have made these references have been defended by Republicans, so the “value” here is not that misogyny is wrong, but that being so blatant about their misogyny is an electoral loser, especially, the Fox panel noted, when running against a woman like former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton.

Perception is everything, and as the Fox panel pointed out, Republicans need to avoid making it easy for Democrats to call out their war on women. Republicans know they can’t win a national election with a loser like Donald Trump, whose contempt and disrespect for women telegraphs the Republican war on women to voters who don’t pay attention to politics and have no idea that the Republican party wants to force women to die in order to protect a fetus that they will later starve in order to feed the top 2%.

Republicans need seeming moderates to sell their economic policies for the 2%, people you want to have a beer with, people you like. No one but the “angry” (Erick Erickson’s word) Republican base likes Donald Trump. So it’s great for them that Trump is attacking favorite Megyn Kelly, because they need to get their base turned off to the Donald and fast.

Erick Erickson has no “line of decency” when it comes to women, so this move is suspect. It’s even more suspect because Trump wasn’t on the list when they sent out the agenda “the other day”. Then they added him and now he’s off again — the guy who is polling first in the Republican primary.

The Republicans are circling the wagons to get rid of Trump and they scored bonus points for putting on a very public show of caring about misogyny. Unfortunately, they only care about misogyny when it’s aimed at a Republican woman by a man they want to get rid of, which is to say they don’t care at all, because an actual value is something that is consistent. The cherry on top is the applause various journalists are giving the Fox panel for asking these questions…

Questions that help their party. The Fox News panel made no secret that the goal of Republicans was to defeat Hillary Clinton, so it’s hard to see how these questions, designed to get rid of a front-runner who can’t win, were anything other than political expediency. I’ve defended Megyn Kelly in the past from the misogyny of her own colleagues, including Erick Erickson. She’s a smart, tough woman and Trump’s comments about her are outrageous. But these questions were one big assist to the Republican Party.

  1. I really don’t care how Trump treat M. Kelly. All the women on Faux news created the treatment Kelly received. Now they want to punish Trump for what the women said it was ok treatment.
    Get for real.. Next!

  2. “Saturday morning Trump tried to explain away the blood comment …”

    So much spin that even Donald is feeling a tad dizzy.

    Trump would do himself and the rest of the nation a great service if he would simply stop talking … period.

  3. Who is this Meghyn? Who cares? You could see the hate come from her eyes and mouth. She only had eyes for Jeb and Dear Lord, we don’t need nor want another Bush in the White House. We don’t need or want another minute of meghyn either or Fox news.

  4. I suspect the cave base is no longer content with dog whistles. They want a brass band, and Trump is giving them one.

  5. as I just posted on TPM…

    the take away for all the other clowns will be:

    see? we criticized Donnie Dipstick’s comments… we support and respect women… what war on women?

    thought bubble above all of their head, except Fiorina maybe, as follows:

    its much easier to be supportive when the chick is HOT!!!

  6. Kelly and the rest of the Fox news bimbette’s can pound sand for all this woman cares. So far all attemps to get rid of Trump have failed and this will hopefully fail also. The rabid throng of the right demands red meat. Erickson’s not had a problem of pumping them a steady diet of such till now. You might as well face the facts, if you try to shut him down, his popularity will soar. LMAO!!!!

  7. As I said, a whole 5 minutes ago:

    [Yeah, let’s chew on the sick fact shall we?] “He-witd-all-da-gold” owns the “legal rights” [as owner of the Miss America Pageant] to “judge” women based on his personal taste. Plus, he dictates the standard by which he defines “beauty” based on a persona, aka, the “trophy wife”; those women willing to be displayed and paid in exchange for their silence…or else.

    Actually, Ms. Kelly blew the dog whistle; the GOP is really asking for a bloody nose if they keep following Trump into the “briar patch” (I know, I know, I’m willing to take heat for political incorrectness. But, I base the metaphor, in context and reference to Brer Rabbit using reverse logic to lure his enemies into his prickly territory. It is a part of our cultural American literature).

    Kelly’s point is well-taken, and, it should be noted by the Dems if himself winds up top of the GOP heap. Trump can turn anything into a mud-wrestling, poop-slinging circus…

  8. Trump un-invited to the red states gathering? Kelly is invited to fill his time slot. The gopers could use her to help kill the “war on women” meme, but Kelly will screw it up. There is too much video of her slicing and dicing her own sex. The dems are going to get a lot of ammo out of this cluster ….

  9. He’s got to be secretly working for the Democrats. (shrug)

    I don’t know how else to circle that square at this point…

    Burn it down Donald, burn it down.

  10. You know it’s bad when even the woman-hating Repubes want nothing to do with him because of his misogynistic comments….

  11. FAUX SNOOZE’s and the GOP’s worst nightmare is Trump as a 3rd party candidate.

    Mary Shelley would be proud of the woman hating, immigrant hating, working class hating monster they have helped to create.

    It’s Alive!!!

  12. No. Republican men think by defending her she will have sex with them. Now if she was old fat and ugly they would have been laughing their pale asses off

  13. I guess the republicans have forgotten all the disrespect they used about our wonderful first lady, at this point I am hoping Trump will run as a 3rd party candidate!

  14. Trump vs. Kelly is Pig vs. Pig. In a just universe, they’ll kill each other and the world will be a better place for it. Media whore vs. Murdoch’s whore.

  15. Trump used to work at Fox, he knows them, and he knows their audience better than they do – they are doing exactly the wrong thing by demonizing him, they’ll make him appear to be the victim (oh, how they know about that) and the base will eat it up, they’ll chose Trump over Kelley. After all, he’s just like them, he’s saying what they are feeling, and Ms. Kelley came off like a feminist. They’re driving him towards a run as an independent.
    WOO HOO

  16. I strongly suspect Trump WILL go independent if the rest of the clowns really gang up on him. Being dis-invited to this red state hoedown has opened the wound and we all know that Trump has a seriously thin skin.

  17. Please!! If it was anyone other than Megyn Kelly, a Fox News pundit who asked these questions, the conservatives would be all over that woman like white on rice. It’s ridiculous to assume that the right wingers would be defending any other female journalist like they are Megyn Kelly. Suppose someone like Rachel Maddow had asked the same questions of Trump?? You know he would go off on an even worse misogynist rant because she is a lesbian….kind like he did with Rosie O’Donnell…and not one conservative would open their mouths except to back up Trump. Fox News including Megyn Kelly created this monster over the years by continually having him as a guest and gushing over him like he was some God…now the chickens have come home to roost.

  18. Puleeze, this week Kelly is on a pedestal for being so brave and tough. Just a few weeks ago she was excusing poor, misunderstood Josh Duggar, for being a child molester, while she was gently orchestrating the shit that was coming out of Jim Bob’s lying mouth.

  19. Trump knows exactly what FUX is doing, including Kelly’s accusatory planned questioning. This farce will probably play well with wingnuts, including the morons who follow uber misogynistic Eric. Everyone involved is playing their part quite well, almost Oscar worthy, and stupid Americans (including certain liberals) will lap it up willingly.

  20. The author and other supposed liberals need to remember that EVERYTHING FUX does is carefully planned and implemented, with Kelly being one of their highest paid whores, (all FUX employees are whores for their rich right-wing extremist masters.)

  21. This whole farce is turning into an episode of WWE, and this latest fracas is the “chair over the head” moment. Except this time Trump is bashing the referee who clearly is trying to throw the match to his rivals.

    Fifteen more months, people. Fifteen more months.

  22. no, I get what Tani is saying. All the FAUX females accept that the ONLY reason they are on-screen is how short their skirts are and how good their legs are and how go along to get along they are with the men. Now they want to say they have brains as well? They should have started that a long time ago before they whored themselves out to Ailes

  23. Here you have a party that encourages poor treatment of women at all times. Then fox tries to berate their “non-choice” candidate for doing that very thing. I would add that this wasn’t done to any of the others on stage. What a pickle. How do you lower the popularity of Trump before he decides to go independent?Be careful. Don’t spook him early!

  24. Notwithstanding Fiorina, ALL of the GOP candidates are Misogynists.

    Unlike Trump, many of the candidates have actually signed legislation which institutionalizes misogyny.

    Trump is just a rich misogyno-capitalist.

  25. No surprise here! republican woman has ZERO problem stabbing their sisters in the back! that’s their thing! I personally have the same amount of respect for republican female as I do BLACK republican!, GAY republican! BROKE redneck republican!, NONE!, republican female is a sad and pathetic individual, they wilfully lower themselves to a dog that’s begging for masters attention! they take this “I’ll STFU and let YOU think for me attitude” Jesus Christ! is this what happens to SOME women who listened to “Stand by your man” too many times? republican women are WORSE than republican men! republican male is at least calling ALL the shots! republican women just nod sheepishly! but when it comes to taking away a womans rights! they’re very vocal! BTW my compassion for megyn kelly is minus ZERO! she knew exactly how republican women are! she knows how the GOP likes their women, DUMB & OBEDIENT!, maybe her LILY WHITE Santa or her LILY WHITE jesus will save her! RIGHT megyn?

  26. @Sophie, you get it! it’s ALL theater!, this is the god damn GOP!, it’s BULL$HIT stacked on MORE BULL$HIT!, rupert murdoch, roger ailes?? they’re nothing but CON MEN!! smut peddlers! they’re professional god damn LIARS!! that’s their JOB! murdoch made MILLIONS just selling gossip and trash! I’m SORRY! I don’t consider selling lies and smut as being business savvy!, HELL!, anyone can sell TRASH! especially in the usa! WE LOVE TRASH! BTW anyone ever wonder WHY you don’t see many BLACK republican women? that’s because the typical black woman wouldn’t put up with the $HIT the GOP puts out! I’m SORRY, most sisters I’ve met in my life, wouldn’t last two minutes in todays GOP! she’d QUIT! curse them OUT get that two minute check and QUIT!

  27. Really? I care, she is a moron, apparently a segment of Jon Stewart’s(Sniffle, I miss him already) made her cry?
    Anyway I care, I don’t want any woman referred to being “On her period”because she asked him some hard questions. She did the same thing to Cheney! I was blown away, lot?
    They believe the crap they spew, otherwise well wouldn’t they realize they are only hurting themselves?
    All I’m saying, she is still a human being. I just think it was appalling, and typical of Trump’s say whatever pops into his head, manner of speech.

  28. …a person desiring to be a Republican has surgery to remove thier conscience, sense of shame or irony…and about half o’ thier frontal lobes…

  29. If Megyn Kelly looked like Rosie O’Donnell Mr. Erickson wouldn’t have been so eager to carry a torch for her.

  30. Except that Trump was dumb enough to walk right into it.

    Kelly is no friend of women but Trump is equally bad. And at least Kelly was getting paid for saying the things she did. Trump said the things *he* said out of stupidity. And misogyny.

    What Kelly did MIGHT have been considered whoring herself out but what Trump did was probably that and more.

  31. Hypocrite Erickson who is a full blown misogynist,look up some of his quotes about hot chicks and dogs, kicks Trump out for being what he, Erickson, is.

  32. Mr. Trump made Megyn Kelly look really bad — she was a mess with her anger and totally caught off guard. Mr. Trump said “blood was coming out of her eyes and whatever” meaning nose, but wanted to move on to more important topics. Only a deviant would think anything else. This related to the debate, which because of Mr. Trump had 24 million viewers — the biggest in cable news history. According to TIME, Newsmax, Drudge Report, The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Hill and many others, Mr. Trump won the debate.

    By the way, the guy (Erick Erickson) who made the decision about RedState called Supreme Court Justice David Souter a “goat [expletive] child molester” and First Lady Michelle Obama a “Marxist Harpy.” He was forced to make a humbling apology.

    Also, not only is Erick a total loser, he has a history of supporting establishment losers in failed campaigns so it is an honor to be uninvited from his event. Mr. Trump is an outsider and does not fit his agenda Many of the 900 people that wanted to hear Mr. Trump speak tonight have been calling and emailing—they are very angry at Erickson and the others that are trying to be so politically correct. To them Mr. Trump says, “We will catch you at another time soon.”
    This is better than I could have possibly imagined. It’s so much better than a car wreck.

  33. Your absolutely spot on! Erickson has said things that have ticked me off way more than what Trump said. They want Trump out and if he wasn’t doing so well right now, no one would have a problem with what was said. I couldn’t give a flying crap about The Donald but, I bet when she called the Huckster, F@ckabee on national tv no one got bent out of shape. I wonder if Huckleberry had been more diplomatic and asked if she was riding the old cotton pony, and that had caused her to foul up his name, if Erickson would have been ok with that? HIPPOCRATES ALL!!!!

  34. Pot (GOP) calling the kettle black (Trump); the GOP are no better. They are trying to control women’s bodies, where they don’t belong. They don’t belong making laws regarding women’s reproductive rights or health. They are freaks, so is Trump, but the GOP needn’t act so innocent, they are just as misogynistic. They don’t even want equal pay for women. They are all garbage juice.

  35. Erickson is an a**. Too bad he didn’t lose his job for insulting our absolutely gorgeous and intelligent 1st lady; like Martin Bashir got fired to saying what he did about Palin.

  36. I don’t know if there is like a GOP “Overlord” is there? I’m asking as I’m Canadian and very familiar with your politics as well as ours, but we are only fun when major city Mayors are smoking crack, maple syrup explosions, etc. lol
    I’ve heard of this Sheldon Adelson or whatever, and the Koch bro’s and such. But was curious,is there one guy(Or consortium) who can say “Donald, you are a crows nest wearing lunatic and you can’t run under our brand from here on out.” and he would be forced to listen? Probably not right?

  37. Trump’s comment sums up the baseness of all the Republican thinking. Just typical of their vile mind set the depth of which is kept hidden mostly.
    I have yet to read a republican woman hauling them and their hateful misogyny over the coals….strange that.

  38. I wonder if sweet little Megyn will stand up and protest when the men call Hillary nasty words. Nope.
    She looks exactly like all the other women on Fox. They all have the same hair, make up, dresses the same length, they all sit exactly the same way, cross their legs exactly the same way. Stepford Fox women.

  39. Don’t kid yourself, reich-wing women are just as misogynistic as the men perhaps more so because it boils down to self-hate. There is plenty of that to go around. Carly’s only role in the sideshow is to bash Hillary, which she does every time she opens her mouth. She is the “female” Ann Coulter.
    Unless, she is being “groomed” for the V.P. slot with carnival cruz’ campaign contribution to keep her in the race a little longer. Fox noise is pushing her as hard as they can also. The gopee shallow and superficial “thinking”goes something like this: Jeb’s wife is Hispanic, so that locks up the Hispanic vote, Carly gets the women’s vote because she has a vagina (I assume) and then they can just keep all black people from voting. Bingo! Bush III, The Sequel!

  41. No, he left out a rational thought. Trump accused Megyn of ‘bleeding’ out of her….hoohoo…which should be the end of him.
