Megyn Kelly continues to defend her line of questions that was directed at Donald Trump during last week’s debate.
As one of the moderators for the debate, Megyn Kelly was tasked with lobbing the questions at the potential candidates, but some say she zeroed in on Trump from the beginning.
One particular question began a war of words between Megyn Kelly and Donald Trump.
During the debate, Megyn Kelly asked the Donald, “Mr. Trump, one of the things people love about you is you speak your mind and you don’t use a politician’s filter.”
She added, “However, that is not without its downsides. In particular when it comes to women, you’ve called women you don’t like fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals…”
Donald Trump joked to Megyn Kelly that he was only referring to Rosie O’Donnell, but she pressed on.

Megyn Kelly continued, “Does that sound to you like the temperament of a man we should elect as president and how will you answer the charge from Hillary Clinton who is likely to be the Democratic nominee that you are part of the war on women?”
After the debate, Trump went on the defensive claiming that Megyn Kelly’s questions were “off-base” and “ridiculous.”
He then infamously added, “You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her wherever.”
@Mediaite Trump is a douche, but I wouldn't call her questions "good Journalism" especially since it was a debate…not an interview

Many a critic of Trump’s has insisted that Trump was referring to her menstrual cycle and have called him a pig and many other colorful names.
But Megyn Kelly, after the initial backlash, has insisted that she was not attacking Trump during the debate.
Sunday, on Fox’s Media Buzz, Megyn Kelly said, “My job is to go out there and ask probing questions that are hopefully smart and help the people learn something about this person and, in this context, their weaknesses.”
She added, “It was a fair question.”
What do you think? Was Megyn Kelly’s question fair? Was Trump’s response pigish or was he just being Trump?
