Donald Trump stood by the controversial comments he made about Fox News host Megyn Kelly and slammed Erick Erickson for disinviting him to a RedState event in a statement Saturday morning.
“You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her — wherever,” Trump told CNN Friday.
In his own statement, Trump clarified that statement, claiming that the “whatever” was actually referring to her nose.
“Mr. Trump made Megyn Kelly look really bad — she was a mess with her anger and totally caught off guard,” the statement read. “Mr. Trump said ‘blood was coming out of her eyes and whatever’ meaning nose, but wanted to move on to more important topics. Only a deviant would think anything else.”
