Middle Georgia Republican Women don’t trust Donald Trump
The top Republican Presidential Candidate is known for speaking his mind. Throughout his entire campaign, he’s sparked controversy and conversation, but did his latest comment about Megyn Kelly take it too far? The vice president of Middle Georgia Republican Women thinks it did.
“You’ve called women you don’t like fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals,” said FOX News Debate Moderator Megyn Kelly. Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump replied “Only Rosie O’Donnell.”
“The remarks that he made all through the debate were unprofessional,” said Elaine Pritchard, the vice president of the Middle Georgia Republican Women and the Secretary for Houston County GOP.
Members of the Middle Georgia Republican Women share the same political party affiliation as Trump, but that’s about it.
“Manners and consideration and respect for women is important,” said Pritchard.
Traits the organization doesn’t think Trump has.
“You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her, wherever, but she was, in my opinion, she was off base,” said Trump.
This is what Trump said after Kelly asked him tough questions during last week’s GOP debate.
“Only a deviant, and I literally mean that, only a deviant would think anything other than that,” explained Trump.
Pritchard doesn’t believe Trump’s explanation that he was talking about Kelly’s nose.
“I think the perception of the majority of people is that he intended it to be very crude,” said Pritchard.
The comment caused him to be uninvited to a major conservative gather in Atlanta. When asked if he wanted to apologize, Trump said no.
“There’s nothing to apologize. She asked a very, very, I thought, unfair question and so did everybody on social media,” explained Trump.
As of now, the Middle Georgia Republican Women don’t think they can trust the top Republican Presidential Candidate.
“I just don’t see him being there for the long term,” said Pritchard.
The latest NBC News online poll shows Trump continues to lead the Republican presidential candidates, even after last Thursday’s debate. He topped the poll at 23%, which is one percent higher than the week before the debate.
