Republicans take down Donald Trump- so what'll they do next?

"...She believes the Republican establishment is trying to discredit Trump."  (Ahhhh, ya' think?)

Megyn Kelly

Donald Trump the Chump created another media super star. Fox News put Megyn Kelly in the panel to moderate the Republican circus debate on August 5th, and she sure delivered the sensational goods. As a result of her questioning, she's become a media super star because Donald Trump the Chump fell for her baited question, like a lobster diving into a trap.

During Thursday's presidential debate, Kelly pressed Trump about misogynistic, sexist comments he made in the past, such as calling some women "fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals."

Trump slammed Kelly, saying her questions were "ridiculous" and "off-base." (At this point, the feud was a standoff...but then...._

CNN Reports:  Donald Trump's feud with Megyn Kelly escalated Friday night when he said the Fox News host had "blood coming out of her wherever" at this week's Republican debate, resulting in swift condemnation from conservatives and a major political event pulling its invitation to him."You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes," Trump told CNN's Don Lemon on Friday night. "Blood coming out of her wherever."

But the comment crossed the line, editor Erick Erickson said Friday night.

Erickson disinvited Trump from the RedState Gathering, a conservative event featuring GOP presidential hopefuls this weekend in Atlanta.

Trump was scheduled to give the keynote speech Saturday night.
Saturday morning, Trump attempted to clarify the remark on Twitter.
"Re Megyn Kelly quote: 'you could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever' (NOSE). Just got on w/thought"

Trump also slammed "'politically correct' fools in our country," tweeting that "we have to all get back to work and stop wasting time and energy on nonsense!"

The real estate mogul elaborated in a statement later Saturday morning, claiming he said "'blood coming out of her eyes and whatever,' meaning nose."

He added: "Only a deviant would think anything else."

As for Erickson -- who is also a Fox News contributor -- Trump called him a "total loser" who "has a history of supporting establishment losers in failed campaigns so it is an honor to be uninvited from his event."

When Erickson told the gathering Saturday morning that Trump would not be attending, the news was greeted with a mix of applause and boos. (Honestly, I believe Erickson was wrong to disinvite Trump the Chump. He deserved a chance to either redeem himself or to dig a bigger hole, especially because he'd already been featured in the program.)

"Folks, I've given Donald Trump a lot of latitude because he's not a professional politician. He's been a very blunt talker. I've said some dumb things in my life, then I've apologized for them," said Erickson, adding that the Trump campaign declined to apologize or clarify the remark when he reached out to them Friday night.

"I think (what he said) was inappropriate, I really think it was inappropriate," Erickson continued. "I've got my wife here, I've got my daughter here, I've got 800 friends of mine here. It's a family-friendly program, and if he's not going to clarify that this isn't what he meant, I don't think I want him at my event."I don't think I want him at my event."
Conservatives outraged (OMG, They were shocked, shocked!)

Erickson wasn't the only conservative bashing Trump.

Penny Young Nance, the CEO and president of the conservative group Concerned Women for America, told CNN that Trump's "tantrum was even more enlightening than his original remarks she questioned."

Kelly and Fox News declined to comment to CNN Friday night.

At the gathering Saturday morning, Bob and Susan Wasielewski, of Roswell, Georgia, said they agreed with Erickson's decision to pull Trump's invitation.

"(The comments) were just totally reprehensible," Susan Wasielewski said. "There's no room for that, and there's no room for a candidate like that to become president of the United States. ... I think he's taken himself out of the race. I think Erick Erickson did the correct thing to disinvite him."

But Mary Howard, 63, of Indianapolis, told CNN that, while she believed Erickson had the right to yank Trump's invitation, she disagreed with the decision and said "a lot of people are disappointed."

She believes the Republican establishment is trying to discredit Trump.  "They twisted what the words were, because they're trying to destroy him," Howard said. "The GOP is really afraid of him and they are going to do anything to discredit him."

"Does (Trump) have a problem with women?" Nance asked in a statement Saturday morning. "Three wives would suggest that yes, maybe there's a problem. The good news is that Kelly is a mother of toddlers and knows how to deal with petulance and tantrums. Every presidential election since 1964, has been carried by women. Women don't like mean and we certainly won't vote for men or women we don't trust. Trump's biggest woman problem is how does he convince women to trust him to keep America safe?"

Media mogul and Fox News owner Rupert Murdoch praised debate moderators Kelly, Bret Baier and Chris Wallace early Saturday morning while criticizing his friend Trump.

"Friend Donald has to learn this is public life,"
Murdoch tweeted.

So, dear Maine Writer friends and readers.....what have we learned from this circus debate??

What we've learned is that Republicans created an effective strategy to take down Donald Trump. But, on the other hand, by revealing their tactics to destroy Trump the Chump, they also let Democrats know just how low the strategists will be willing to go, in order to create chaos in the 2016 election.

Hillary Clinton beware and please prepare.
