Just His Time of the Month

Let it be said

that this poet
is no great fan

(to say the least)

of Fox News pundit
and host of the first Republican debate
in Cleveland Ohio

Megyn Kelly

but she struck a chord

when she told Trump
"You’ve called women
you don’t like

fat pigs
slobs and disgusting animals"

mentioning his making fun
of women's looks on Twitter

and the time he told
a Celebrity Apprentice contestant

that it would be 
"a pretty picture
to see her on her knees"

and concluded with

"Does that sound to you
like the temperament of a man
we should elect as president?

And how do you answer the charge
from Hillary Clinton

that you are part
of the war on women?"

And Trump

rather than claiming those comments
were made in anger

or as a joke

or by some version of himself
swayed to nastiness
by the left-wing media

instead embraced them

and said
"I think the big problem
this country has
is being politically correct."

In an interview with CNN's
Don Lemon on Friday

he made the perfectly innocuous comment

"You could see

there was blood
coming out of her eyes

blood coming out
of her wherever."

(Of course he meant
her nose.)

It was so innocuous

that Trump was uninvited
by longtime Fox News contributor
Erick Erickson

from the RedState Gathering
in Atlanta

and Kelly was invited
in his stead.
