Donald Trump

In a tabloidlike opening to the first 2016 GOP debate, Donald Trump dominated headlines for the comments some viewed as misogynistic.

During the debate, Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly asked Trump about comments he made about women, including calling some "fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals" on his Twitter account.

"You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her ... whatever," Trump said after the debate was over.

Cue media firestorm. In the days after the comment was made, Trump said, "Who would say that? Do you think I'd make a statement like that? Who would make a statement like that? Only a sick person would even think about that." He also said that he meant to say that blood was coming out of Kelly's nose or ears, and that he thought Kelly should apologize to him over the question she asked him in the debate.
