Donald Trump dug his heels in on Sunday, refusing to apologize to Fox News host Megyn Kelly after he said she “blood coming out of her wherever” during the GOP presidential debate on Thursday.
“I apologize when I’m wrong. But I haven’t been wrong,” Trump told NBC’s Chuck Todd on “Meet the Press” on Sunday, after insisting that he was suggesting that Kelly had blood coming out of her nose and ears.
The real estate mogul said he was simply responding to an unfair question from Kelly during the debate, and that his comments toward other women in the past were only in response to attacks against him.
“When I’m attacked, I fight back. When 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,” he said on NBC. “But I was attacked very viciously by those women.”
Trump also hit back at Carly Fiornia after she defended Megyn Kelly and said that Trump’s comments were “offensive.”
I just realized that if you listen to Carly Fiorina for more than ten minutes straight, you develop a massive headache. She has zero chance!
