Will Donald Trump's temperament against women he dislikes COST him the presidency? #HNNPolitics

At Thursday's GOP debate, Fox News moderator Megyn Kelly, centre, asked Donald Trump about calling women "fat" and "dogs" and whether it reflected the “temperament of a man we should elect as president.”

GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump said Friday he can’t recall using words such as “dog,” “fat” and “disgusting” to insult women he believes have slighted him, but such language litters his Twitter feed and other public comments he’s made for years.

The issue took centre stage at the first Republican debate of the 2016 campaign for president on Thursday night, when Fox News moderator Megyn Kelly asked Trump about his use of such language and whether it reflected the “temperament of a man we should elect as president.”

Trump largely dismissed Kelly’s question, and in a series of interviews Friday on network television, the billionaire businessman questioned whether he had actually used the words as Kelly had alleged.

“You know, some of the statements she made about the women, I don’t recognize those words whatsoever,” Trump said on ABC’s Good Morning America. “We’re going to take a very serious look at it.”

Trump has a long history of lobbing insults at those he feels have treated him unfairly — he also advises those who buy his books to do the same.
