The first 2016 GOP debate had no shortage of memorable moments, but the one that will live on in infamy is Trump's response to Fox News host Megyn Kelly's question about his comments regarding women. "You've called women you don't like 'fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals,'" Kelly said. "Only Rosie O'Donnell," Trump replied.
Following the debate, Trump suggested Kelly asked antagonistic questions because she was menstruating. "You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her… wherever," Trump said on CNN. (A spokesperson later claimed he was talking about her nose.)
Kelly later took a scheduled vacation that Trump insinuated may have been punishment from top management at Fox. When she returned, he began insulting her on Twitter, retweeting followers who called her a "bimbo."
Fox Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes defended Kelly in a written statement: "Donald Trump's surprising and unprovoked attack on Megyn Kelly during her show last night is as unacceptable as it is disturbing."
Trump dismissed the idea of apologizing to Kelly, saying instead she should apologize to him.
