Donald Trump stood by the controversial comments he made about Fox News host Megyn Kelly and slammed Erick Erickson for disinviting him to a RedState event in a statement Saturday morning.
“You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her — wherever,” Trump told CNN Friday.
In his own statement, Trump clarified that statement, claiming that the "whatever" was actually referring to her nose.
"Mr. Trump made Megyn Kelly look really bad — she was a mess with her anger and totally caught off guard," the statement read. "Mr. Trump said 'blood was coming out of her eyes and whatever' meaning nose, but wanted to move on to more important topics. Only a deviant would think anything else."

"By the way, the guy (Erick Erickson) who made the decision about RedState called Supreme Court Justice David Souter a 'goat [expletive] child molester' and First Lady Michelle Obama a 'Marxist Harpy.' He was forced to make a humbling apology."
"Also, not only is Erick a total loser, he has a history of supporting establishment losers in failed campaigns so it is an honor to be uninvited from his event," the statement continued. "Mr. Trump is an outsider and does not fit his agenda."
Trump has only clarified his comment on Kelly — not apologized.
Erickson also came under fire in 2013 when he and fellow Fox News pundit Lou Dobbs appeared on Kelly's show to defend comments they made in regards to a study that claimed that more women were becoming the breadwinners of the family.
"When you look at biology, look at the natural world, the roles of a male and a female in society, and other animals, the male typically is the dominant role. The female, it's not antithesis, or it's not competing, it's a complementary role," Erickson said then. "We as people in a smart society have lost the ability to have complementary relationships in nuclear families, and it's tearing us apart."
Trump slammed Fox News after the ratings for the debate were released; around 24 million people tuned into Thursday's GOP debate, propelling the televised event as the highest non-sports cable program ever.
.@redstate I miss you all, and thanks for all of your support. Political correctness is killing our country. "weakness."
