If the party establishment is intent on getting Donald Trump to back off on his recent attacks on Gold Star families and babies and pivot to running a general election campaign, let it be noted that yesterday in Daytona Beach, he did change the subject: he reminded us of what was grabbing the headlines a year ago.
One year ago this week, then-long shot candidate Donald Trump was alluding to Fox News host Megyn Kelly’s menstrual cycle as the reason for her tough questions during the first presidential debate. The GOP nominee took up re-litigating that one-sided feud on Wednesday, saying he was referring to Kelly’s nose, ears, or mouth when he said she had “blood coming out of her whatever.” Anyone who disagrees is “perverted,” Trump told attendees at a Daytona Beach, Florida town hall.
Well, to his credit, Mr. Trump did pivot. Just not the way they wanted.
