CNN’s Carol Costello: If Trump ‘Cherishes Women,’ Why Does He Call Them Bimbos?

vlcsnap-2016-01-27-10h16m55s256CNN’s Carol Costello was less than happy after Donald Trump again tweeted calling Fox host Megyn Kelly a bimbo, pressing one of his supporters why he did so when he supposedly “cherishes women.”

“Trump often says he ‘cherishes women…’” Costello pointed out to Trump fan Jeffrey Lord. “But make no mistake, he’s calling Megyn Kelly a bimbo. Why go there?”

“What he’s really demonstrating here is the whole political correctness argument,” he replied. Lord pointed out that when Kelly and Trump battled over his anti-woman comments in the first Fox debate, the audience cheered Trump.

“But that doesn’t matter to journalists if the audience cheers. We’re not here to please the audience during debates,” Costello insisted. “So I want to go back to his tweet. Why call her a bimbo when Donald Trump often says he cherishes women?”

Lord again dodged the question, instead giving a muddled answer about the media. “What I’m only wondering is why did Donald Trump feel the need to go there?” Costello tried again.

“He’s not politically correct,” Lord replied. “If you are asking, would I say it ? This is Donald Trump. He does things — he not politically correct. this is why the people like him.”
