Erickson has withdrawn Trump's invitation, however, because of comments he made after the debate about Megyn Kelly, who had asked him about his derogatory comments about women.
In a post-debate interview with CNN, Trump said this about Kelly:
"There was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever."Erickson immediately withdrew Trump's invitation to speak and explained that, although Trump's bluntness appeals to a lot of people, "there are just real lines of decency a person running for President should not cross. . . . I just don’t want someone on stage who gets a hostile question from a lady and his first inclination is to imply it was hormonal. It just was wrong."
Trump called Erckson's decision "another example of weakness through being politically correct." During the debate, he had defended his derogatory language by saying he just "doesn't have time for political correctness."
Erickson responded back to Trump, saying that "common decency is not political correctness or weakness."
The bottom line though is still this: Trump is dominating the news, one way or another. He may last a while longer, but mark this as the beginning of the end for Donald Trump.
PS: This is kind of weird. Erickson himself has been called out by other conservatives for his derogatory comments about women -- especially Michelle Obama, who he has called a feminazi and a "marxist, harpy wife." He has also proclaimed that gays will go to hell. Not a totally nice guy himself, despite his defense of Megyn Kelly.
