CLEVELAND, OH - During Thursday's Republican debate, Donald Trump was questioned about his insults to women.

Debate moderator, Megyn Kelly, winding up to shoot off a question began, "You've called women you don't like fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals..." To which Trump interrupted her to say, "Only Rosie O`Donnell."

Not 24 hours post debate, Trump fired off another sexist volley, this time about moderator Kelly. He said, "You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her...wherever."

The words, with their stunning imagery, were enough to bring consequences. Saturday morning Trump was dumped from a Republican campaign gathering in Atlanta, sponsored by Redstate.com.

Erick Erickson, RedState.com editor said, "I really think it was inappropriate. I've got my wife here, I've got my daughter here, I've got 800 friends in mind here...I don't think I want him at my event."

On Twitter, Trump lobbed over a response. He said "Political correctness is killing our country." Then he wrote the word "weakness." No word whether that reflects his feeling about those who are offended by him or his campaign's longevity.
