Trump: I Did the Crowd a 'Favor' By Repeating Woman's Vulgarity

(Fox News/"Fox & Friends")

By    |   Tuesday, 09 February 2016 11:08 AM

Donald Trump has come under some criticism for repeating a vulgar name a female audience member called rival GOP candidate Ted Cruz Monday night, but he insisted Tuesday that it was more like doing a "retweet" and it was all in fun.

"I have to tell you that the woman shouted it out," the New York businessman told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" program. "Okay, it was like a retweet. I would never say a word like that."

During a packed rally at the Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester, New Hampshire, Monday night, a woman yelled "he's a [expletive]" while Trump was discussing Cruz's hesitation during Saturday night's ABC News Republican debate, when he was asked for his views on waterboarding.

Trump repeated the woman's comment, a slang term for female genitalia, and then told the reporters he was"reprimanding" her for the benefit of reporters in attendance. "Ma'am, you're reprimanded. Can she stay? This is a serious reprimand . . . for the press," he said.

"We were all just having fun," Trump told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" program. "It was a great moment, I got a standing ovation, the place went wild. Somebody said mixed cheers. Let me tell you the place went wild."

And, he insisted, "all I was doing was repeating it because people couldn't hear it, so I was doing everybody a favor. Does that make sense?"
