Trump Defiant on CNN: I’m More ‘Beloved’ Than Megyn Kelly Is

trump megynDonald Trump was on form (make of that what you will) on CNN this morning, bragging to Jake Tapper and continuing to rip Megyn Kelly, Erick Erickson, and Jeb Bush.

Trump told Tapper only a “sick” person would assume that when he said Megyn Kelly was bleeding from her “wherever,” he was talking about… well, you know. He did keep insisting that “she had great anger when she was questioning me.”

When Tapper pressed him, Trump asked, “Do you think I’d make a stupid statement like that?”

Tapper pointed out that it’s not really liberals taking him out of context, so much as conservatives trashing him and some seeing this as a dealbreaker. Furthermore, Tapper asked Trump why he would attack Kelly at all when she’s so “beloved” by conservatives.

Trump’s answer: “On social media, I’m the one that’s beloved.”
