Donald Trump slams Rosie O’Donnell during GOP debate

Billionaire real estate mogul and Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump is making no apologies for his past crude comments about women.

At the first GOP presidential debate Fox news host Megyn Kelly sharply questioned how Trump has described women in the past, criticizing their bodies and making sexually suggestive statements on his television show.

“You’ve called women you don’t like ‘fat pigs,’ ‘dogs,’ ‘slobs,’ and ‘disgusting animals’", Kelly said before Trump cut her off and said, “Only Rosie O’Donnell.”

Trump tried to joke initially, but he said testily that he didn't have time for "total political correctness."

Staying combative, he said that if Kelly didn't like it, "I'm sorry." He added that he's always said nice things about her, but he threatened to be less kind to her in retaliation.

"I've been challenged by so many people and I don't frankly have time for total political correctness," he said. "This country is in big trouble. We don't win anymore."

O'Donnell responded to Trump on Twitter saying, "try explaining that to your kids."

      When Clinton left office he left a surplus of over $1,000,000,000,000.00 that’s one trillion dollars. I’d vote for Bill Clinton again in a heartbeat. He may be a womanizer but so were many of his predecessors and personally I don’t believe that it’s any of my business. What he does is between him and God and Hillary and has no bearing on his ability to perform his duties.

    It’s terrible, but speaks to the culture today, that WGN spent more time on the Jon Stewert accolades than signicant segments of the GOP debate. Their highlight was Trump and not the important content shared quality candidates. It’s entertainment news! Shame on you.

    WOW…..how our politicians make laws to protect people of all races and gender’s, but are the first ones to hurl insults to the same people thy so call protect. This America is headed in the wrong direction. Other countries no longer fear us.
