Will This Outrageous Statement Donald Trump Just Made About Megyn Kelly End His Political Career?

Real estate mogul and 2016 Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has come under fire from critics on many occasions since he entered the 2016 race. He has a tendency to speak before he thinks, operating completely unscripted. But, could this latest comment be the one thing that proves costly to his presidential bid?

During Thursday night’s Fox News GOP Presidential debate, Trump took issue with moderator Megyn Kelly and her line of questioning. Although Kelly was one of three Fox personalities running the debate, Trump’s biggest problem was with Kelly, not co-moderators Bret Baier or Chris Wallace.

Critics believed Trump was singled out by Kelly and criticized her line of questioning as being not tough, but rather antagonistic specifically towards Trump. The Donald agreed and has reportedly threatened to boycott the next Fox debate set to be held in Iowa in January.

During an interview on CNN with Don Lemon on Friday, Trump made an incredibly shocking comment aimed towards Megyn Kelly. He said, “She gets out and she starts asking me all sorts of ridiculous questions. You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever. In my opinion, she was off base.”

Blood coming out of her wherever?

What else could Trump have been referring to than a woman’s menstrual cycle?

This wasn’t Trump’s first controversial comment regarding Megyn Kelly. Also after the debate, he came under fire for retweeting a comment about Megyn Kelly which called her a bimbo.

The Donald, who has been admired by his following for telling it like it is, was said by political pundits to be doomed when he made what was dubbed to be “controversial” remarks about Mexican immigrants, stating that some of the immigrants that cross the Mexican border into America are criminals and rapists. Instead, he rose in the polls with people who found it refreshing to have someone tell it like it is.

When he said that Arizona Senator John McCain was only considered to be a war hero because he was captured, then added that he liked people who weren’t captured, many pundits thought those statements would mean the end of The Donald’s presidential campaign.

It didn’t. Again, he soared in the polls afterwards.

But, will this bombastic and demeaning comment by Trump about Kelly, in an apparent attempt to degrade her in a lowbrow way, prove to be the thing that is costly to his campaign?

The attack got Trump disinvited to the Red State Gathering, a two day grassroots event for conservatives taking place this weekend in Georgia. Event organizer Erick Erickson explained his decision to revoke Trump’s invitation. He explained that while he personally liked Trump, he took issue with the comment about Kelly, believing it went to far.

Erickson said, “His comment was inappropriate. It is unfortunate to have to disinvite him. But I just don’t want someone on stage who gets a hostile question from a lady and his first inclination is to imply it was hormonal. It just was wrong.”

In his place, Erickson invited Megyn Kelly instead. Nine other presidential candidates were also set to attend.

One of the candidates in attendance is former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina who made a name for herself at the “happy hour” debate which took place prior to the big debate of the candidates polling in the top 10. Fiorina is believed to have won that debate with her powerful performance proving to many that she is indeed a top tier candidate.

Fiorina took to Twitter to call Donald Trump out for his tasteless remark.

Will Trumps comment, viewed by many as sexist and tasteless, prove costly in the polls this time around?

Only time will tell.
