Donald Trump Destroys Rosie O'Donnell During GOP Debate

Megyn Kelly didn't see that one coming

August 6, 2015

Outspoken Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump waited almost no time to have a memorable moment at his first-ever debate Thursday night.

Fox News host Megyn Kelly asked Trump about his controversial and insulting comments about women in the past.

"One of the things people love about you is you speak your mind and you don't use a politician's filter. 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. Your Twitter account --" Kelly said, before Trump interrupted.

"Only Rosie O'Donnell," Trump said, bringing the house down at the Cleveland debate.

Kelly blanched as the audience roared with laughter. Trump and O'Donnell have a rather tense history.

Trump went on to say the country was far too politically correct, and in his usual blustering manner, took a shot at Kelly, drawing some jeers from the crowd at Quicken Loans Arena.

"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," he said. "Oftentimes it's fun, it's kidding, we have a good time. What I say is what I say, and honestly, Megyn, if you don't like it, I'm sorry. I've been very nice to you, although I could probably maybe not be based on the way you have treated me, but I wouldn't do that."
