Megyn Kelly says she 'won't apologize' for Donald Trump debate questions

Megyn Kelly responded on Monday to what she called her recent “dust-up” involving Donald Trump following last week’s GOP primary debate.

“Mr. Trump was upset with a question I asked him at the debate last week about his electability, and specifically comments he has made in the past about women,” Kelly said. She had asked Trump about calling women “fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals” on his Twitter account. (Trump responded by saying, “Only Rosie O’Donnell.”)

“Apparently, Mr. Trump thought the question I asked was unfair, and felt I was attacking him,” Kelly said on Monday. “I felt he was asked a tough but fair question. We agree to disagree.”

After the debate, Trump went on the offensive, slamming Kelly for her “ridiculous” questions and saying that “there was blood coming out of her eyes … blood coming out of her wherever.” That comment ignited a firestorm for its sexist undertones, but Trump maintained it had nothing to do with Kelly’s period.

“Who would say that?” Trump said to CNN on Sunday. “Do you think I’d make a statement like that? Who would make a statement like that? Only a sick person would even think about that.” He did not apologize for the comment.

“Mr. Trump did interviews over the week that attacked me personally,” Kelly said on Monday night. “I’ve decided not to respond. Mr. Trump is an interesting man who has captured the attention of the electorate. That’s why he’s leading in the polls. Trump, who is the frontrunner, will not apologize. And I certainly will not apologize for doing good journalism, so I’ll continue doing my job without fear or favor. And Mr. Trump, I expect, will continue with what has been a successful campaign thus far. This is a tough business and it’s time now to move forward.”
