Donald Trump Kicked Out Of RedState Gathering Over Megyn Kelly ‘Blood’ Comments

On CNN on Friday, Donald Trump made a comment in a phone interview with CNN that quickly snowballed into a major controversy. Speaking about Megyn Kelly’s questions for him at the GOP Debate, Trump suggested that the Fox News host was bleeding from her “wherever.”

 

 

“You know you could see there was blood coming out of her eyes,” Trump said to Don Lemon, “blood coming out of her wherever.”

The comment spread like wildfire, receiving condemnation from usual suspect liberal sites such as Think Progress and Gawker, but also from conservative sites such as The Federalist.

Late Friday evening Trump faced far more significant fallout when he was disinvited from the RedState Gathering event taking place in Atlanta.

The Gathering topped Twitter’s trending topics several times Friday, and features most of the major contenders for the Republican nomination, including Marco Rubio, Rick Perry, Bobby Jindal, Chris Christie, Carly Fiorina, and Jeb Bush. In light of the gap in the lineup, Erickson extended an invitation to Megyn Kelly to attend the Gathering in Trump’s place.

UPDATE: Erick Erickson has posted an article at RedState elaborating on his decision.

As much as I do personally like Donald Trump, his comment about Megyn Kelly on CNN is a bridge too far for me.

UPDATE 2: The Right Scoop points out that fellow GOP candidate Carly Fiorina also weighed in on Trump’s comments Friday night.

UPDATE 3: First response from Trump camp:
