Skip to comments.I Have Disinvited Donald Trump to the RedState Gathering
Posted on 08/07/2015 10:48:17 PM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife
I have tried to give a great deal of latitude to Donald Trump in his run for the Presidency.
He is not a professional politician and is known for being a blunt talker. He connects with so much of the anger in the Republican base and is not afraid to be outspoken on a lot of issues. But there are even lines blunt talkers and unprofessional politicians should not cross.
Decency is one of those lines.
As much as I do personally like Donald Trump, his comment about Megyn Kelly on CNN is a bridge too far for me.
In a CNN interview, Mr. Trump said of Megyn Kelly, You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her wherever.
It was not the blood coming out of her eyes part that was the problem.
I think that is true. And Ive been very sympathetic to Donald Trump because so many of the people who have led the party astray refuse to even treat him as a legitimate candidate.
But I also think that while Mr. Trump resonates with a lot of people with his bluntness, including me to a degree, there are just real lines of decency a person running for President should not cross.
His comment was inappropriate. It is unfortunate to have to disinvite him. But I just dont want someone on stage who gets a hostile question from a lady and his first inclination is to imply it was hormonal. It just was wrong.
I have invited Megyn Kelly to attend in Donald Trumps place tomorrow night.

I did a quick google search and found a great amount of negative articles from Erickson on Trump, including from a month ago. Even the one you are referring to makes Erickson sound like a "compassionate conservative" type.
Rush? No, Erickson has been hysterical about Trump for ages now. Rush is no hysterical busy body. He’d be showing it already, with blood coming out of his eyes, and, wherever.
“I have invited Megyn Kelly to attend in Donald Trumps place tomorrow night.”
I am not even a Trump guy...but kelly needs to be cut down.
I am a Cruz supporter, so I want Trump out at some point, but not like this.
Louisiana/Dubai faux southerner
I detest him
He’s like south hating Freepers
A special hell for them metaphorically
He’s pissed on Trump from start
And he said monkeys were smarter than women recently
Look at him.....he’s a triple chin red faced punk who’s looking to make a name and a buck
And he detests the Confedrate flag same as or worse than south bashers here
He’s not actually just born to yankee oil patch parents here but pretends with his accent
Trump will be fine
Go back to CNN to be with your own kind, Erickson. What a loser. Is he really just concluding that a Trump slip of the tongue meant MEGYN’s on the RAG??? I didn’t read it that way at all. His advisers said he meant to say “whatever” after probably thinking about blood shooting out of her mouth and thinking it didn’t make sense. He then said the eyes comment about that Demoncat Wallace as well.
He runs a blog that gets about 30% of the traffic as FR, but thinks its National Review or something.
Thanks for that insight. I’d like to catch up on the talk radio hosts, here, I only get 1, Rush.
Erik has been a guest host and he didn’t seem too far off course.
Perhaps I’m more open than he is?
(I recall Chris Mathews guest hosting as well as Howie Carr)
Does he know how Kelly speaks of God?
He went further than a tad, but you’re right. Inviting Kelly was stupid also.
I hadn’t even heard about this one. I thought the “bimbo” comment was bad. This goes beyond poor taste.
I’ll just stick to supporting Cruz the best I can.
He’s been around the political scene for years.
Always trying to make a “name” for himself but will always be relegated to the “kids” table of politics.
He just doesn’t have it in him to up his game, so has to constantly try to be relevant, to no avail in the long run.
I noticed that Katie Pavlich was at his little thingie with a mic.
She’s pretty savvy, she will figure him out quickly I would imagine.
Erickson did garner a bit of respect a decade ago or so here at FR, but it wasn’t long until it was realized he didn’t have the creds to be a contender.
Well, she was being super PMS-y with her mood swings.
A MEGALOMANIAC PSYCHO MICHAEL BROWN SUPPORTER who doesn’t realize RED is the color of the COMMUNIST PARTY
Erickson’s a loser.
All the other candidates got tough questions delivered by a sharp stick, the difference is that they parried the “gotcha” questions and didn’t start rolling around in the mud with the moderator to deflect from the question.
This was the response from William A Jacobsen on Legal Insurrection ( a true Conservative): Erick Erickson: moving on from Sarah Palin is like leaving Scientology
Interesting that Erickson at same time in the previous election cycle also attacked a leading contender for the GOP nomination.
Oh look, King Cuckservative comes out swinging. GET F*CKED ERIC! The people are SICK of you!
If Trump arranges a meeting elsewhere, more people will go to that than will go to Ericksons!
Now they can all relax while they have their Trump bashing ass kissing party, holding hands singing Kumbaya.
I thought he was in Georgia or Alabama.
There’s a time for mud too and frankly Donald walks clear of it afterward pretty well.
Bock bock chickens.
