Donald Trump: ‘I don’t recognize’ insults of women

in 2017/Top Headlines by

Donald Trump says he can’t recall specifics of insulting women.

The GOP presidential hopeful says he didn’t recognize the words Fox News’s Megyn Kelly used during a debate on Thursday. Kelly asked about him having called women “fat pigs,” ”dogs,” ”slobs,” and “disgusting animals.”

On NBC’s “Today” and MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Trump says he didn’t recognize the insults and will “have it checked out.”

In fact, news outlets have reported that he wrote a New York Times columnist that she had the “face of a dog” and called a lawyer “disgusting” when she wanted a break to pump milk for her baby. And he called talk show host Rosie O’Donnell a “fat pig,” a “slob” and an “animal.”

Women are a majority of registered voters.
