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.”

    He refused to apologize? Really?

    In other news, the sun is still hot, water is still wet, and Republicans are still assholes.

  2. Well of course he won’t, because he’s a piece of shit.

  3. I’m no fan of Donald. However in this instance I’m pulling for him. His comment was stupid, off color and sexist, but the GOP dumping on him is total BS and nothing but a lame excuse to try to knock down the front-runner and put in an establishment “yes man” such as any of the other candidates. Disparaging comments about women are ingrained in the Republican mindset and they’ve never been against these type of comments before. Go Trump!

  4. I didn’t see the interview, but I’m sure that Chuck Todd challenged Donald Trump at every turn, consistent with his take-no-prisoners style of investigative journalism.

    And it’s comments like this that make me think he’s being funny and really is just trolling everyone.

    But then again, he probably has all sorts of women telling him how hot he is, gag.
