President Donald Trump appealed to suburban women to support his reelection bid by saying at a campaign rally in Johnstown, Pennsylvania on Tuesday, October 13, "Suburban women, will you please like me? I saved your damn neighborhood, OK?" Following this, former Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly defended the president's statement and drew backlash on social media. 

While the president was slammed on social media for the way he chose to appeal to suburban voters, Kelly tweeted, "'Please, please like me' is actually a pretty fun, funny, and self-deprecating way of connecting. This is why so many ppl forgive Trump his jagged edges - he can laugh at himself."



 

Since Kelly hasn't had the best of history with Trump in the past, with the latter making disparaging statements against her at one point, many people brought up that point in the comments section as they slammed her on Twitter. One of them was Newsweek columnist Seth Abramson, who said, "Yeah, Megyn, I don't know why him shouting 'I SAVED YOUR DAMN NEIGHBORHOOD' and being accused of sexual assault by 25 women isn't catching on the way it usually does when a serial sex criminal starts demanding things of women he doesn't know". 

Actress Yvette Nicole Brown also commented, saying, "Like when he said your were so nasty to him you must be on your period? Like that, Megyn? Oh how we all LAUGHED and LAUGHED! I heard Roger Ailes was super funny too. Tell us one of his jokes, Meg!" Actress and activist Alyssa Milano opined, "And when you're a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. ... Grab 'em by the pussy. You can do anything. - Donald Trump"



 



 



 

Others also soon chimed in: "Are you the same @MegynKelly who blasted Trump for calling women pigs and dogs? Your sad attempt at a rapprochement is lost on him. 'He can laugh at himself' is a flat misfire. NO. He cannot. He has NO sense of humor or self-deprecation, and you have no insight." Another wrote, "'She had blood coming out of her eyes. Or blood coming out of her whereever,' omg Lol. Wait. He was talking about YOU." Another said, "It is crazy to me that a smart person like Megyn Kelly, (who has a law degree) either A. has no concept whatsoever of what a narcissist is, or B. pretends to be ignorant for ideology. I just don't understand pretending to be an idiot for personal gain. There are better ways." A third commented, "How are you on the Trump train after what you went through at Fox and what he’s similarly done to other women? At the end of the day, I guess I understand but it’s still surprising." One more quipped, "Good lord. Do you really believe this BS? He laughs at himself? This is a man devoid of self reflection. He has no real sense of humor. He is mean and cruel. Making fun of others isn’t humor. It’s evil and you’re spinning lies."

 



 



 



 



 



 

We previously reported that Trump praised his withdrawal of an Obama-era regulation meant to expand low-income housing in suburbs in an attempt to defeat racial discrimination and his support for law enforcement as reasons suburban voters should flock to his campaign. "They talk about suburban women. And somebody said, ‘I don’t know if the suburban woman likes you.’ I said, ‘Why?’" Trump told the crowd, though he did not clarify to whom he had spoken. "They said, 'They may not like the way you talk,’ but I’m about law and order. I’m about having you safe. I’m about having your suburban communities. I don’t want to build low-income housing next to your house."

"Suburban women, they should like me more than anybody here tonight because I ended the regulation that destroyed your neighborhood. I ended the regulation that brought crime to the suburbs, and you’re going to live the American dream," he added. "So can I ask you to do me a favor? Suburban women, will you please like me? I saved your damn neighborhood, OK?"
