Snide remarks continue between Donald Trump and Fox News host Megyn Kelly
IOWA (KUSI) – Within moments of the start of a Donald Trump news conference late Tuesday afternoon, there were fireworks.
A reported was escorted out and Trump said Fox News reporter Megyn Kelly should apologize to him for her questions during the first debate.
Trump was in Dubuque, Iowa Tuesday. It’s a state where he’s doing well, but needs to do better if this Trump candidacy is going to stretch into next fall.
But it’s clear where ever he goes, there’s drama and controversy. It makes good headlines and right now, it’s working for Trump.
At the start of the news conference, Trump began calling on reporters, but Jorge Ramos, an anchor for Univision, stood up and began barking questions at Trump.
Trump told him to quote, "shut up" several times and eventually had him thrown out.
And then, Trump was asked about his continuing battle with Fox News host Megyn Kelly, who asked him about his disparaging remarks about women during the debate.
He thinks they were unfair questions.
"You’ve called women you don’t like fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals," Kelly said during the first round of debates.
"Only Rosie O’Donnell," Trump interrupted with a sneer, earning cheers from the crowd.
Kelly wasn’t having it. Any of it.
"For the record, it was way beyond Rosie O’Donnell," Kelly said – before launching into a laundry list Trump’s most misogynistic moments:
"Your Twitter account has several disparaging comments about women’s looks. You once told a contestant on the Celebrity Apprentice it would be a pretty picture to see her on her knees. Does that sound to you like the temperament of a man we should elect as president? And how do you answer the charge from Hillary Clinton – that you are part of the war on women?"
To which Trump responded, "What I say is what I say, and honestly, Megyn, if you don’t like it, I’m sorry. I’ve been very nice to you, although I could probably maybe not be based on the way you’ve treated me, but I wouldn’t do that."
