In an appearance this morning on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump suggested he’ll be doing a fact-check of Fox News host Megyn Kelly. “The question on the women — I didn’t say many of those things. They said something and they were giving out some words and I don’t remember that on ‘The Apprentice.’. . . I don’t recognize those words.” To resolve the matter, Trump said he was going to “have somebody call up and ask where these words came from.”

“Those words” to which Trump is referring, came from the mouth of Kelly, who asked Trump:

Mr. Trump, one of the things people love about you is you speak your mind and you don’t use a politician’s filter. 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.” Your Twitter account . . . has several disparaging comments about women’s looks. You once told a contestant on “Celebrity Apprentice” it would be a pretty picture to see her on her knees. 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 was likely to be the Democratic nominee, that you are part of the war on women?

Trump cut off Kelly after the third sentence of her question: “Only Rosie O’Donnell.” Some people laughed. And then he babbled about political correctness, finishing by getting personal with Kelly: “And honestly Megyn, if you don’t like it, I’m sorry. I’ve been very nice to you, although I could probably maybe not be, based on the way you have treated me. But I wouldn’t do that,” he said. After the debate, he did, in fact, do that, tweeting critical things at the star Fox News anchor:

We’ve asked Fox News and the Trump folks just where this matter now lies; will update upon getting feedback.
