NBC News anchor Andrea Mitchell awkwardly talked around the word, asking Trump on Tuesday, "What was going through your mind when that woman shouted a word out and you went with it?"

"We were all just having fun. It was a great moment," Trump said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."

He said the comment earned him a massive standing ovation, "close to 5,000 people."

"I got a standing ovation, the place went wild. Somebody said mixed cheers. Let me tell you the place went wild," Trump said.

He added that he was "doing everybody a favor" by repeating the woman who called Cruz a "pussy" because "people couldn't hear it."

During an interview on Fox News' "America's Election Headquarters" on Tuesday, Trump said he would "never say a word like that."

"It wasn't overly bad. And I have to tell you that woman shouted it out," Trump said. "Okay, it was like a retweet."
