The first GOP Presidential debate of the 2016 election turned into a debate between Donald Trump, a billionaire mogul and the current GOP frontrunner, and Megan Kelly, a moderator and Fox News host, when Kelly accused Trump of making disparaging comments in a “war on women.”

“One of the things people love about you is you speak your mind and you don’t use a politician’s filter,” Kelly said. “However, that is not without its downsides; in particular when it comes to women. You’ve called women you don’t like fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals.”

“Only Rosie O’Donnell,” interjected Trump, whose comment was met with cheering and applause.

“For the record, it was well beyond Rosie O’Donnell,” Kelly said.

“Yes, I’m sure it was,” Trump replied.

“Your Twitter account has several disparaging comments about women’s looks,” Kelly continued. “You once told a contestant on ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ it would be a pretty picture to see her on her knees. Does that sound to you like the temperament of a man we should elect as President, and how will you answer the charge from Hillary Clinton, who is likely to be the Democratic nominee, that you are part of the ‘war on women’?”

Trump responded, “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.”

“This country is in big trouble,” continued Trump, who claimed that the U.S. is currently “losing to everybody,” especially China and Mexico, “both in trade and at the border.”

“What I say is what I say,” Trump concluded. “Honestly Megyn, if you don’t like it, I’m sorry. I’ve been very nice to you, although I could probably not be based on the way you have treated me, but I wouldn’t do that.”

Later in the debate, Kelly pressed Trump on his stance on past issues, noting that in 1999 he favored a ban on assault weapons and described himself as “very pro-choice,” favoring partial-birth abortions, and in 2004 he identified as a Democrat in most cases.

“Even in this campaign, your critics say you often sound more like a Democrat than a Republican, calling several of your opponents on this stage things like clowns and puppets,” Kelly said. “When did you actually become a Republican?”

“I don’t think they like me very much,” responded Trump, who went on to say that he has “evolved on many issues,” just like Ronald Reagan.

Following the debate, Trump took to his Twitter account. While he didn’t take the time to discuss commentary from his fellow candidates during the debate, he did take the time to criticize Kelly’s performance as a moderator, saying that she “really bombed tonight” and was “not very good or professional.”
