Trump said he was referring to Kelly’s nose when he told CNN Friday that “there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever” while speaking about questions she asked him during the first GOP debate Thursday. The comment led RedState’s Erick Erickson to withdraw Trump’s invitation from the event, which several other candidates were slated to attend.
“If you haven’t heard, I disinvited Donald Trump,” Erickson said as the second day of the event opened.

Erickson said when he heard about Trump’s comment, he asked his campaign if Trump meant what was implied and whether he planned to clarify or apologize.
“It’s disrespectful to Megyn Kelly. It’s disrespectful to female journalists,” he said. “I don’t want my daughter in the room with Donald Trump.”
