Skip to comments.GOP Candidates Jump on Bandwagon to Criticize Trump
Posted on 08/08/2015 2:48:32 PM PDT by Red Steel
Trump was unhappy with some of the questions Kelly asked him when she moderated Thursday evenings GOP Debate and posted a series of aggressive tweets through the wee hours Friday morning. Then, as Breitbart News reported, in a Friday evening appearance on CNN Tonight, Trump said that Kelly had blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever. Many interpreted this comment as inappropriate or even sexist.
Fiorina, the only female among the Republican presidential candidates, was the first to criticize Trumps comments, tweeting that there was no excuse for what Trump said and that she stood with Kelly. Pataki tweeted that the outrage at his fellow New Yorker was long overdue and called it a sad but predictable meltdown from Trump.
Late Friday, RedState Editor-in-Chief Erick Erickson disinvited Trump from the RedState Gathering, currently taking place in Atlanta, Georgia. Erickson praised Trump for being a blunt talker who connects with so much of the anger of the Republican base but said that his inappropriate comment had crossed real lines of decency.
Trump fired back with a statement of his own, calling Erickson a total loser, and tweeting, Political correctness is killing our country. He also claimed that he meant blood coming out of Kellys nose.
Many were not buying Trumps belated excuse, including Fox News Greg Gutfeld, as well as more of the Republican presidential candidates. Beginning on Saturday morning, several others joined the Shame on Trump bandwagon, similar to how they had denounced his previous controversial attacks on and his time as a POW during the Vietnam War.

Carly is running to be John Ellis Bush’s vice president.
rino and vp rino
Is this supposed to be a surprise? Of course they are! Each wants a big chunk of his percentage. That's how it works.
These Republicrat imbeciles don’t even realize that bandwagon is itself a propaganda tool. Welcome to Amerika!
If they all agree on something, I can pretty much know it isn’t good for us.
If the GOP want to go all SJW PC then so be it. They have destroyed the GOP anyhow. The only candidates worth voting for are Trump and Cruz. The Republicans are no better than democrats at this point.
Excerpt Cruz, who refuses to climb down into the muck.
We get the government we deserve. This nation is on its heels and people are arguing over this shit which is nothing.
Character used to matter to people especially on FR. How times have changed.
These Establishment RINOS are once again paving the path to an easy Hillary Clinton victory. All Clinton has to do is sit back, watch the GOP screw up AGAIN, and become President. Im sick of this, the GOP wants Jeb Bush SO badly, just like they wanted Romney SO badly and look what it got us..the same way they are treating Trump they will treat Ted Cruz next, and Ben Carson..I heard Carson was not invited to speak either
Trump is running to support Kelo, crony capitalism, mean looking rifle bans and as ingle payer healthcare. No wonder he has so much support. Lol.
This is the exact reason why conservatives are so fed up with political correctness. Excuse me candidates, we are talking about bimbo Megyn Kelly who will take any one of you down if she can as she only cares about herself. Besides, she has no blood in her veins, only ice water.
Little Linda Graham has spoken for them. Let the Dems win over Trump.
Fiorina and Kasich are going nowhere in the polls.
Maybe Rubio will take some of Jeb’s polling.
Every candidate on the stage was asked a “gotcha” question to start them off. Every single one. Princess Trump problem was he provided more ammo in his past to choose from than the others. Suck it up Trumpsters.
The GOPE has lost all their character.
And relegate themselves to be the candidates who cannot save America and will never be President.
