Donald Trump’s blood comment

Listening to the actual interview in context, I do NOT get the impression that Trump intended to make a remark about Megyn Kelly menstruating. If he had, Trump the narcissist would have paused to let his witty put-down sink in and smugly bask in the glow of it. Instead, it has the feel of Trump talking faster than he can think about what he wants to say, totally unaware that what he said could be interpreted as referring to menstruation until after he said it.

I think that anyone who listens to the interview without bias would come to the same conclusion, so this is just an excuse for the mainstream media and political elites to try to knock Trump out of the race, again.

Compare Trump to Bill Clinton who sexually harassed, and even sexually assaulted, a long list of women, but instead of being in prison, or out on parole as a sex offender who is not allowed within a thousand feet of a school, he is adored by the mainstream liberal media.

No way that was meant to be a menstrual joke. Trump has a very particular manner of delivering zingers and put downs. Always deliberate, and usually with a dramatic pause to allow the audience time to reflect on The Donald’s cleverness.

  1. Joe Scarborough made the same point today on his show. When he heard it, he didn’t make any sort of period connection, so was surprised to see the media full of stories about Trump making some sort of hormone reference about Megyn Kelly. The media basically so hate Trump and so want to take him down that they are perfectly willing to just make stuff up.

  2. I really, really don’t like conspiracy theories. But at this point, it’s obviously true that Fox News has an agenda. Of course, we always knew that. But I never expected that they would be so blatant about it.

      of course, the media isn’t covering it. and that is because all police brutality, and the police state generally, is framed as a racial issue, which agitates the former CSA and leads them to take a “tough stance” on “crime” no matter the cost to themselves or their society.

      Since you understand law enforcement better than law enforcement, police should resign en masse and be replaced by you and other liberal SJWs. You can then set the definitive example of how to put racially tolerant policing theory into practice.

      Don’t forget to repeat to yourself ten times “there are no average, genetically determined, mental differences between races” when you stop a car filled with black teens at 3:20 am.

      sure. and then I can also say “but there are in fact, observed differences,” and take rational action.

      But those observations are only environmental. Surely your tolerant, open minded, presence would calm the situation down and put those youths on the fast track to Harvard Medical.

      • I think it’s an appropriate parody

        then the same critique applies to you. that an individual’s actual outcome fails to preclude a different initial potential outcome does not mean the individual’s current state is easily fixable or changeable.

        And out-of-control crime requires more zealous policing

        crime is so “out-of-control” that it has been steadily dropping. the constitution grants plenty of power for police, especially in light of SCOTUS broadening exceptions to the 4th amendment.

        The best way to make the police nicer is to reduce crime.

        or to remind them that they serve the people and are bound by the constitution. but sure, the system is so great that the US has the highest WHITE incarceration rate, sentences WHITE non-violent drug offenders to lengthy prison terms, and a former cop’s recommendation for “standing on your rights” is to a) not do that and b) piss yourself.

        30% – 33% of blacks men end up in prison; which police dept engages in malfeasance topping that?

        the fact that you believe this is an accurate parody says it all.

        What parody? You sounded so sure cognitive differences (even height!) is the result of environment. So ask for a ride in a squad car and prove it.

        And since you oppose parody instead of factual argumentation so much, I’m still waiting on you to give me three quotes of Obama’s indicative of high intelligence, and quotes from any major researcher who’s of the opinion observed height differences across race are primarily environmental.

      • the chance of an officer violating someone’s constitutional rights during his or her career is nearly 100%. and entire departmental policies have been found to be unconstitutional…

        the differences can be the result of a different interaction with the environment and difficult to alter because of genetic reinforcement.

        the fact that Obama graduated magna cum from HLS is that proof.

        height isn’t IQ or behavior. it’s much less complex, was less selected for and therefore likely varies more.

  3. Briefly after the blood-from-the-eyes, and blood-from-the-whatever, Trump referred to Chris Wallace with “blood coming out of his eyes.”
    Appears to be just an idiomatic expression Trump uses.

  5. My favorite thing was that later, when faced with the “period” accusations, Trump says: “Only a deviant would say that what I said was what they were referring to. You almost have to be sick to put that together.”

    Key thing here? Trump’s use of the word “deviant.” This is word you almost never hear used anymore, because the Cultural Marxists don’t want it in the vocabulary. Why? Because NOTHING is deviant to them. Not homosexuality, not rampant promiscuity (across genders), not the pornification of America, not the sexualization of young girls, not black teen flash mobs looting stores, nothing. They want “deviant” and “deviance” removed from the vocabulary. Proof? Check out the use of the words on Ngram and how they have dramatically declined since the 1970s when psychiatry was completely politicized and the Progs completely took over the media. Good for The Donald in bringing this vital but neglected word back into focus.

    The comparison to Bill Clinton is appropriate. Clinton is a serial sexual predator who should have gone to jail. His lovely wife enabled him. But the corrupt liberal MSM adore them.

  14. It should be remembered that Kelly tried to “gotcha” Trump with the fact that he called women means names like “fat pig.”

    I have no doubt that Trump has called men mean names and no one will ask him about that. Essentially, Kelly was asking a militant feminist question that assumed women are not to be ridiculed in any form.

    The fact that white women have been covereted into a “civil rights” group aligned against white men is total insanity; but here we are.

      August 11, 2015 at 4:16 am

      • Steamroller

        According to two high-level Fox sources, Ailes’s diplomacy was the result of increasing concern inside Fox News that Trump could damage the network. Immediately following Thursday’s debate, Fox was deluged with pro-Trump emails. The chatter on Twitter was equally in Trump’s favor. “In the beginning, virtually 100 percent of the emails were against Megyn Kelly,” one Fox source, who was briefed on the situation, told me. “Roger was not happy. Most of the Fox viewers were taking Trump’s side.”

        Things got worse for Ailes over the weekend. In a phone conversation, Trump told Sean Hannity that “he was never doing Fox again,” according to one person with knowledge of the call. The anti-Kelly emails, and threat of a boycott by Trump, seem to have pushed Ailes to defuse the war. One Fox personality told me that Fox producers gave instructions to tell in-house talent not to bring up Trump’s controversial comments that Kelly had “blood coming out of her wherever” during the debate. According to one count, Fox only aired Trump’s comment once since Friday, while CNN mentioned it at least 50 times.

        In recent days, Ailes got a glimpse of what a Trump-less Fox News would look like. On Sunday, Trump called in to the four other public-affairs shows; this morning he gave interviews to Today and Morning Joe. Inside Fox, this was alarming. “This thing with Megyn got way ahead of Roger and bigger than he must have thought,” one Fox personality said. “Roger wants this to blow over,” another source added. “He’s upset that conservatives are mad at Fox.” Online, Ailes also took flak. Both the Drudge Report and Breitbart News carried pro-Trump headlines.
