Bloviating billionaire and reality TV actor Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, had his long-awaited one-on-one interview on the inaugural edition of Megyn Kelly Presents, on Fox TV, an interview that took place after Kelly requested a meeting to mend fences following multiple hate tweets from Trump.
One of the more infamous bully tactics by Trump, who may suffer from a severe and untreated case of narcissistic personality disorder (NPD), was his repeatedly referring to the FOX News superstar as a “bimbo,” language that would historically have ended any other politicians career, except for the fact that Trump cultists, according to Trump, would still support him even if he stood in the middle of Fifth Avenue in New York shooting people.
In an interview that broadcast on Tuesday, Trump amazingly told Kelly that he didn’t remember referring to her as a bimbo, even though it was huge national news at the time and he retweeted the label to his millions of Twitter followers.

After Megyn Kelly reminded him of the misogynistic smear, Trump still didn’t apologize — he must not know how to — but only said “excuse me.”
The Blaze reported the exchange:
“Well, that was a retweet — did I say that?” Trump asked in the sit-down, their first conversation since the August 2015 debate, noting that there were worse comments that he chose not to retweet.
Kelly replied, “Many times.”
“Oh, OK. Excuse me,” Trump, clearly uncomfortable, answered, as Kelly smiled on.
But Trump was quick to clarify that, surely, his comment was “not the most horrible” thing that’s ever been said about Kelly.
“Over your life, Megyn, you’ve been called a lot worse,” he said. “[Y]ou’ve had a life that’s not been that easy.”
So Trump contends that Megyn probably has been called much worse than a “bimbo” in her career. What could possibly be that much worse than a bimbo?

Oh yeah, maybe when this sociopath said that she was so angry that she “had blood coming out of her whatever.” I remember that.
