So. Donald Trump won’t apologize for his childish, boorish remark concerning Megyn Kelly having blood coming out of her “wherever.” When he said “wherever,” Trump now says, “I was going to say, nose, and/or ears. Because that’s a very common statement. Blood flowing out of somebody’s nose. It’s a statement showing—and remember she had great anger when she was questioning me. . . .” Of course. And if you believe that, I have property on the Boardwalk in Atlantic City I’d like to sell you. Carly Fiorina, whose campaign is enjoying something of an uptick in the last few days said: “Women understood that remark. And yes, it is offensive.” Men understood it, too, Carly. Trump’s disingenuous, after-the-fact explanation fell flat.
The questions asked of Trump weren’t really that hard or unexpected. Still, they made him sweat. How this supposedly astute businessman could be so thoroughly unprepared was something of a surprise.
Then the tears. Megyn was not nice to him, he tells anyone who will listen – and it’s now four days after the debate. Trump proved, if nothing else, that he is a self-entitled whiner. Hardly endearing qualities in a Presidential candidate, in my view.
Still, for all the talk of blood, and Trump’s sweat and tears, Donald Trump remains – today at least – the frontrunner for the Republican nomination. But I think his days are numbered.
