Oops! Fox Host References Trump’s Megyn Kelly ‘Blood’ Comment

After Donald Trump said that Megyn Kelly had “blood coming out of her wherever” during the Republican debate, Fox News hasn’t made much reference to the comment that nearly caused a rift between the real estate mogul and the cable network.

Yet, “The Five” co-host Eric Bolling managed to slip in a reference during a segment on Kim Kardashian. While discussing Kardashian’s promotion of medication without listing the side effects, Bolling offered a few possible symptoms she could have listed.

“Migraines may ensue or you’ll bleed from your eyes and your nose — or whatever,” he said, referencing Trump’s comment about Kelly.

“Oh my god,” co-host Dana Perino said in response, before placing her head in her hands.

Trump’s complaints about the questions posed by Fox News at the first GOP presidential debate and his personal comment about Kelly briefly caused a tiff between the real estate mogul and Fox News. As Trump continued to rail against the channel, Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes called the presidential candidate to patch things up. Once the air was cleared, Trump returned to Fox News for a phone interview with “Fox and Friends.”

  2. Fox…Keeping it classy after all these years. And Dana, you W. water carrier you, don’t expect any sympathy. You signed on to work with these cretins knowing fully well that their combined IQ was challenged by a kumquat.

    (I do love that picture of her here, though. Words could never do it justice)

    Dana is shocked at what a fellow Republican said? Really? She made it through how many years of speaking for W and never getting shocked? Suddenly a joke like this shocks her? Maybe she was more embarrassed than shocked…

  5. Had anything misogynistic Trump or anyone at FOX Snooze’ said about women been said about Hillary Clinton or Elizabeth Warren or…etc., all of them, men and women alike at FOX, would have been giggling, adding to the reference and high-fiving each other.
