    Yes, definitely. He shouldn't have said that, it was extremely disrespectful.

    Yes, he should, but he's a narcissist with no conscience and a lover of all attention, so he won't. Even if he is compelled to, it won't be sincere, so why bother? Megyn's a big girl, I'm sure she's not losing sleep over it knowing whose mouth it came from.

    No, if he believes in what he said, then he should stick to it.
    The problem today is that people are coerced into not having opinions that aren't popular.

    The Freedom of Speech protection of the 1st Amendment is of no use, if we can't speak our minds. The laws of Defamation are there to protect the person mentioned in the statement. Although, the truth is a complete defense.

    If you want to judge, or attack Donald Trump you can do it at the polls. I personally don't want presidential candidates that will say one thing to get into office, and then find out they just said it to win votes.

    Political Correctness is wrong, and it weakens Freedom of Speech.

      Someone who wants to be President can disagree with a woman without the "period" references - too juvenile in his expression of his ideas. It's not his opinion it's how he expresses it. It's not too much to expect people to show some class.

    From (his point of view) there is no "upside" for apologizing!
    The people who support Donald Trump hate "political correctness".
    He didn't apologize for calling Mexicans rapists, for saying John McCain was not a hero, for giving out Lindsey Graham's personal cell phone number, "Jeb Bush can't negotiate his way out of a paper bag.", or accusing the president of the U.S. of not being born in America. Trump's supporters see apologies as a weakness!
    Anyone who is holding their breath waiting for Trump to (apologize) to Megyn Kelly should get their affairs in order first!
    In fact many people feel as though she and Fox News ambushed him with questions that had nothing to do with policy issues or national concerns. At this point Trump can do no wrong.
    A petition posted Friday to change.org demands that Fox News ban Megyn Kelly from participating in any further GOP debates. By Sunday afternoon, that petition had garnered over 27,000 signatures!
    Today, the firm Morning Consult released a poll that showed Trump's support nationally {increasing to 32%} from 25% last week!
    I don't believe he stands a chance to win in a general election with these antics however he is resonating with a very sizeable  group of people within the (Republican) party. It can't be denied.

      I think we should let the people that were mentioned by Donald Trump the choice to answer his comments about them.

      The rest of us can just put it to a vote, if he gets that far.
      What I am against is the use of the herd effect of making things up

      Fortunately/unfortunately "the herd effect" of everyone having an opinion about what they see/hear/read is here to stay. It's especially true in our age of social media and 24 hour cable news cycles. It's why I don't get emotionally invested.

    My guess is that if Ms. Kelley asks for an apology, or says something to Mr. Trump like "You owe me an apology" then Mr. Trump will offer it, and it will be heartfelt.
    To me, it seems unlikely that Mr. Trump will offer any sort of apology based solely on third party attention and interpretation.  They both know that much of politics is about the skill of leading third parties to believe a meaning was intended when it was not actually expressed.
    Is anyone else considering the possibility of a Trump / Palin ticket?
