Donald Trump’s Invitation To Speak Revoked

Known for his bold comments, Donald Trump may have alienated as many people as he has drawn with his attitude since the GOP presidential debate last Thursday. While Donald Trump’s brutal honesty about the poor state of affairs in America these days are met with widespread accolades, his comments regarding Fox News moderator Megyn Kelly have come under fire.

According to the Washington Post,Donald Trump was slated to speak at Erick Erickson’s RedState event this weekend at the College Football Hall of Fame. Erick took great offense at these comments Donald Trump aimed at Megyn Kelly.

“You know, you could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever.”

Although Erickson has not spoken directly to Donald Trump, he shared a heated conversation with Trump’s campaign manager. The Trump campaign released a statement regarding the revoked invitation.

“[Erickson’s decision] is another example of weakness through being politically correct. For all the people who were looking forward to Mr. Trump coming, we will miss you. Blame Erick Erickson, your weak and pathetic leader. We’ll now be doing another campaign stop at another location.”

Time reports that Erickson did not take kindly to Donald Trump’s campaign statement against him, returning fire for fire.

“I think it’s probably more pathetic to interpret a reporters’ tough question as the product of hormones.

“To suggest that the person who’s asking him the question has a hormone problem, doesn’t suggest that he’s tough, it suggests that he’s a bully.

“I wanted to have him here as a legitimate candidate, but no legitimate candidate suggests a female asking questions does so because she’s hormonal.”

To add insult to injury, Erickson invited Megyn Kelly to fill the spot that was once reserved for Donald Trump. According to CNN, Erick said Trump crossed a line.

“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.”
