Let's look at some other media gaffes or Trump plants that get him in the news and keep him there for some time. First off let's go to the first debate. Millions of people were tuned in to that debate because they were curious to see Trump fall flat on his face. In that debate, he didn't do much and lost that debate by an landslide. He was asked some very tough questions and especially about his treatment of women by Megyn Kelly of Fox News. Trump's take on that whole debate was that it was an orchestrated attempt by "the establishment" to embarrass him and get him out of the race. It backfired and in the process Trump hit Kelly with a statement that caused an uproar for maybe a week or more. All negative press for Trump which he did his best to turn around and blame the press. In that press fiasco. Trump tweeted:
He was talking about her attitude toward him with her questions. Apparently he was trying to convince people that she had it in for him or was coached by Fox to go after him hard. Apparently it worked because for a week he was in the news and everyone was clamoring him to explain his statement and women were in an uproar because they felt that Trump had implied that it was that time of the month for Kelly and she was not herself or so that is what he was implying. Although women were in an uproar that little fiasco did not hurt Donald Trump. In fact, it looks like his poll numbers went up instead of going down. The one thing I can't believe is that a Presidential candidate no matter how unpolitically correct he is would tweet the entirety of the Dr. Dre classic “Bitches Ain’t Shit” at Kelly for the rest of the afternoon:
I know I am an adult and I've read and heard those words many times in my lifetime but who wants to hear that come out during a run for President of the US. This is just a vulgar tirade by an immature a'hole, if that is permissible to say online. After this feud that went on for least a month, Fox News was very angry at Trump but being that the news depends on ratings and Trump was in somewhat of a ban from Fox, the news channel backed off and Boss Roger Ailes made a truce with Trump to stop the attacks on Kelly and he would be treated fairly by Fox. This worked out for a while until Kelly went on an eleven day vacation at which point Trump went after her again:
This set off the controversy once again and it lasted at least a week or more. Free publicity although negative but you know what they say any publicity is good publicity. Next time the next controversy.
