Eric Ericson From RedState.Com Is A PC Sellout. Dumps Trump From Event.

Morning friends, apparently Eric Ericson the owner editor of Redstate.com is having some kind of gathering this weekend and has buckled to PC pressure. It seems he takes issue with part of an interview Trump did after the debates with Don Lemon of CNN. This is the part he and others are now trying to make the story de jour. May I just say. Poor, Poor wittle Meghan.

Let’s just remember who started this at the debates. Anyone who defends Kelly is automatically suspicious in my mind. I’m not saying you have to like Trump, but if you excuse her behavior then I think you detest him for whatever reason. Think about that.

———————————————————————————————

In the CNN exchange Trump roundly attacked her, saying: ‘I don’t have a lot of respect for Megyn Kelly, she came out, reading her little script, trying to be tough and sharp. 

‘When you meet her you realize she is not very tough or very sharp. She is zippo.’

When Lemon asked him to expand, he said: ‘I just don’t respect her as a journalist. I have no respect for her, I don’t think she’s very good. She’s highly overrated.

‘I got out there they start saying all this stuff… she gets out and she starts asking me all sorts of ridiculous questions. You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever... you could see she was off-base.’

He concluded: ‘She’s a lightweight, I couldn’t care less about her‘. Some commentators online criticized Lemon for not asking Trump to explain himself.

Here’s the interview. It’s long at 31 min, but worth the watch.

So Ericson responds on his website (Below) that not only has Trump crossed the line, but he has invited Poor Wittle Kelley to replace him. Now I’ve went to Redstate site and they have closed comments on thread because the Mod says he’s too busy at the gathering. There are about 300 comments and a bunch of deletions and many are slamming Ericson and Redstate for their Bullcrap PC decision. In all honesty to me RS has always been suspicious to me. I’ve never felt Ericson was a true Conservative.

PS. The funny thing is they keep saying that they have been defending Trump because of the way he has been treated. Then this is what they decide is too much for them. Phoneys if you ask me. Bought and paid for. If you find the time read some comments on story.

I have tried to give a great deal of latitude to Donald Trump in his run for the Presidency.

He is not a professional politician and is known for being a blunt talker. He connects with so much of the anger in the Republican base and is not afraid to be outspoken on a lot of issues. But there are even lines blunt talkers and unprofessional politicians should not cross.

Decency is one of those lines.

As much as I do personally like Donald Trump, his comment about Megyn Kelly on CNN is a bridge too far for me.

In a CNN interview, Mr. Trump said of Megyn Kelly, “You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her wherever.”

It was not the “blood coming out of her eyes” part that was the problem.

I think there is no way to otherwise interpret Mr. Trump’s comment. In an attempted clarification, Mr. Trump’s team tells me he meant “whatever”, not “where ever.”

( No Eric that’s the way your Girlie PC Man wants it to sound)

The other day, we sent out the agenda for the RedState Gathering. The file had been saved with the “final” tag and the Washington sent it out. But it still had Governor Deal on the agenda and it did not have Donald Trump on it. Obviously, it wasn’t the final.

I called Mr. Trump’s campaign manager and apologized and told him I felt bad for Mr. Trump because he has gotten so much sh*t from so many people and the party itself wasn’t treating the guy at the front of the pack as legitimate.

I think that is true. And I’ve been very sympathetic to Donald Trump because so many of the people who have led the party astray refuse to even treat him as a legitimate candidate.

But I also think that while Mr. Trump resonates with a lot of people with his bluntness, including me to a degree, there are just real lines of decency a person running for President should not cross.

His comment was inappropriate. It is unfortunate to have to disinvite him. But 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.

I have invited Megyn Kelly to attend in Donald Trump’s place tomorrow night.

    • I love it, and folks Erickson has long been involved with the phony rightwing, and this is just another shot at Trump from the right. They’re all in on it. They all want some schmuck like Bush to run against Hitlery so she’ll win. The people of America are showing that they like someone who tells the truth and doesn’t give a dang what happens…the MSM doesn’t scare Donald.

  1. How would Hillary run a Country from a Prison cell? BTW-you can TELL Kelley is a bottom feeder-remember,Howard Stern went to Satellite broadcast because he couldn’t broadcast Porn over the airwaves managed by the (now worthless) FCC. So,WHAT kind of “journalists” would go on his show? Megyn Kelley,….
    If someone is willing to roll over because of one WORD,what does that say about HIM? How is HE gonna survive with his “controversial” program if one word makes him change his programming? What a Wuss.

  2. Hey idiot Ericson. You just lost my respect. Megyn Kelly is NOT a candidate for office. Trump IS a candidate. I hope you get the backlash you so rightly deserve.

  3. Quilter, he certainly is getting a lot of backlash from what I’ve read. He’s been slammed with all kinds of nasty email. Not only that the gathering was basically ruined yesterday for all the speakers because all the media wanted to do was talk about Trump. The other candidates were getting ticked off.
    Redstate closed the thread on it’s site about this and people are just posting on every other thread about it.
    He made a huge mistake. Either he bowed to PC, or the powers that be told him to did invite Trump. Either way every time they do this they do not realize just how pissed of the “We The People” are about these things.
    I sorta like Trump, he needs to get a thicker skin, but every time they do this they make us rally around our “truth teller”

    As long as people don’t fall for the PC nonsense and pay attention we need to keep the train going. It’s now or never.
