Donald Trump defended past disparaging remarks about women during Thursday’s GOP debate, saying he doesn’t have time for “total political correctness” and that oftentimes he’s just kidding.
“You've called women you don't like fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals,” Fox News debate moderator Megyn Kelly told Trump.
“Does that sound to you like the temperament of a man we should elect as president,” she added.
Trump said those comments were directed at TV personality Rosie O’Donnell, who has publicly feuded with Trump in the past.
“I think the big problem this country has is being politically correct. I've been challenged by so many people and I don't frankly have time for total political correctness and to be honest with you this country doesn't have time either,” Trump shot back to cheers.
“Frankly what I say and oftentimes it's fun, it's kidding, we have a good time,” Trump added.
