Red State editor Erick Erickson uninvites Trump from Red State Gathering
Red State editor Erick Erickson has uninvited Donald Trump from the upcoming Red State Gathering after the controversial GOP candidates comments about Fox News' Meygn Kelly.
"As much as I do personally like Donald Trump, his comment about Megyn Kelly on CNN is a bridge too far for me.
"In a CNN interview, Mr. Trump said of Megyn Kelly, 'You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her wherever.'
"It was not the “blood coming out of her eyes” part that was the problem.
"I think there is no way to otherwise interpret Mr. Trump’s comment. In an attempted clarification, Mr. Trump’s team tells me he meant 'whatever', not 'whenever.'
"His comment was inappropriate. It is unfortunate to have to disinvite him. But I just don’t want someone on stage who gets a hostile question from a lady and his first inclination is to imply it was hormonal. It just was wrong.
"I have invited Megyn Kelly to attend in Donald Trump’s place tomorrow night," Erickson wrote on Red State.
