Our favorite very classy combover enthusiast, Donald Trump, has turned the art of being a professional used car salesman into a life mantra. He's a vacuous airbag with no inner life and no scruples if it affords him the chance to get in front of a camera.

The fact that he has singlehandedly taken ahold of the Republican presidential campaign narrative this summer is a testament to the dearth of personality and intelligence among the other 700 G.O.P. candidates. Over 24 million people watched Thursday's debate, which is more people than the average Walking Dead episode gets—and the debate included fewer signs of brain activity than you'd find in an average walker.

Trump can make ratings happen, there's no denying that, but so can shows about Americans who swap wives or shows that exploit children and feature pedophiles prominently. There's still a huge difference between being laughed at and having people laugh with you. And Trump's "campaign" most decidedly falls into the former column.

And so here we are on Saturday, dealing with the fallout of the fallout from that Thursday's sorry spectacle—specifically, the fact that Trump told CNN yesterday that he thinks debate moderator Megyn Kelly was too harsh on him. Trump said of Kelly, "There was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever."

There is little doubt what he meant by "wherever." You'd have to be squeezing your eyes shut, holding your hands over your ears, and screaming LA LA LA LA LA not to recognize what Trump meant. Even the NY Times is not equivocating in their lede on the story today: "Donald J. Trump’s suggestion that a Fox News journalist had forcefully questioned him at the Republican presidential debate because she was menstruating cost him a speaking slot Saturday night at an influential gathering of conservatives in Atlanta."

Gosh, who would ever expect someone who is a notorious unabashed racist, someone who thinks marital rape isn't a real thing, someone who talks trash about war veterans, someone who thinks women are only worth mentioning if they are particularly attractive, would say something so sexist and stupid? What a thing.

Due to those comments, Erick Erickson, the leader of conservative activist group RedState, disinvited Trump from the group's forum this weekend. You can read Erickson's full explanation about the snubbing here, but in essence, Trump bashed one of his colleagues and friends, and that's not cool, Bro. Oh sure, there's the whole infuriating misogynistic aspect—as Erickson put it, "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"—but Erickson is no gentleman himself. He has a long history of spouting just as much hateful garbage about women as Trump, as many people on Twitter have been pointing out.

Trump has responded in very expected ways, with his team trying to spin the Kelly comments as being taken out of context. Erickson wrote that, "In an attempted clarification, Mr. Trump’s team tells me he meant 'whatever,' not 'where ever.'" That spin didn't work though, so then Trump claimed on Twitter that he was referring to... her "nose."

Let's be absolutely clear: Trump was not referring to her nose. He was referring to her "wherever." Her "wherever" is her female anatomy, which Trump may or may not know the proper terms for.

But this is about decency. Decency among the some of the biggest hate-speech advocates in American politics today. Something something kettle something something black something something flush both these guys down the toilet.

Trump has since released a very classy rebuttal to Erickson.
