After Donald Trumps offensive comments toward Megyn Kelly during and after the GOP debate, Erick Erickson (editor of RedState and a Fox News contributor) uninvited Trump to the upcoming RedState Gathering, where Trump was scheduled to be the keynote speaker.
Erickson said that “there are even lines blunt talkers and unprofessional politicians should not cross. Decency is one of those lines.” and “As much as I do personally like Donald Trump, his comment about Megyn Kelly on CNN is a bridge too far for me.”
There’s just one problem with this. Erickson himself is a prominent sexist who has publicly said many things just as bad as what he is angry at Trump for saying. Heck, Erickson has even taunted men who defend women, so shouldn’t he be tweeting some disparaging remarks about himself. I won’t repeat the sexist things Erickson has said, because there are so many of them, but Vox Politics has collected a number of them from various sources.
So if overt sexism is not the reason Trump was uninvited, I can only speculate what the real reasons are.
One last thought. Does anyone else find it suspicious that all of the people involved in this controversy are either current or former Fox News employees? I would be suspicious if I could see any benefit to them to create this controversy.
