Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is still catching heat for a comment that he made on Aug. 6 during the Republican debate on CNN in which he appeared to be making fun of Fox News host Megyn Kelly's menstrual cycle (video below).
Trump told CNN host Don Lemon:
"She gets out and she starts asking me all sorts of ridiculous questions. You know, you could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever. She was, in my opinion, she was off base. And by the way, not in my opinion, in the opinion of hundreds of thousands of people on Twitter."
On Aug. 8, Trump clarified his insult on Twitter: "Re Megyn Kelly quote: 'you could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever' (NOSE). Just got on w/thought.'"
According to CNN, Trump also told Rich Lowry of The New York Post:
"Well, I didn't say I didn't mean them. I said what I said. And, frankly, I didn't even finish that sentence and people said, oh, he must have been thinking about this. It was a ridiculous interpretation. And most people agree with what I said. And, you know, I — I — what I said was very simple and I wanted to get onto the next thought. And, frankly, I don't even know how it could have been misconstrued unless somebody's a deviant."
Many women on Twitter were not convinced and have started trolling the billionaire reality TV star.
Amber Gordon, of Femsplain.com, set up the website PeriodsAreNotAninsult.com, which is encouraging women to tweet the real estate mogul about their periods, notes Talking Points Memo.
Some of the tweets on Twitter include:
"hi @realDonaldTrump, just wanted to let you know I'm on my period right now!!!!!"
"@realDonaldTrump I've been bleeding for two days and my brain is STILL working better than yours."
"Dear @realDonaldTrump Should I buy the panty-liners with wings, or without?"
