Donald Trump was supposed to be speaking this weekend at the conservative RedState Gathering in Atlanta, but he was disinvited late last night.

The reason? He told CNN that he was unhappy with moderator Megyn Kelly‘s questions at the GOP Primary Debate, blaming them on her period:
“You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her wherever.”
The RedState Gathering’s organizer Erick Erickson explained the disinvitation this way:
… while Mr. Trump resonates with a lot of people with his bluntness, including me to a degree, there are just real lines of decency a person running for President should not cross.
His comment was inappropriate. It is unfortunate to have to disinvite him. But I just don’t want someone on stage who gets a hostile question from a lady and his first inclination is to imply it was hormonal. It just was wrong.
I have invited Megyn Kelly to attend in Donald Trump’s place tomorrow night.
As much as I agree with the decision, it makes no sense that this was the bridge too far for a Republican to cross.
