    Atlanta (CNN)Donald Trump's latest controversial comment was so alarming that he's been disinvited from a conservative gathering Saturday in Atlanta.

    At issue: Trump's comments on "CNN Tonight" about Fox News' Megyn Kelly, who moderated a GOP presidential candidate debate Thursday night. During the debate, she pressed Trump about misogynistic, sexist comments he made in the past.

    Trump slammed Kelly, saying "she is a lightweight. I couldn't care less about her."

    "You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes," Trump told CNN's Don Lemon on Friday night. "Blood coming out of her wherever."

    That remark crossed the line, said RedState.com editor Erick Erickson. He disinvited Trump from the RedState Gathering, a conservative event featuring GOP presidential hopefuls this weekend in Atlanta.

    "I have tried to give a great deal of latitude to Donald Trump in his run for the presidency," Erickson wrote.

    "He is not a professional politician and is known for being a blunt talker. He connects with so much of the anger in the Republican base and is not afraid to be outspoken on a lot of issues. But there are even lines blunt talkers and unprofessional politicians should not cross. Decency is one of those lines."

    Republican stalwart and Fox owner Rupert Murdoch praised debate moderators Kelly, Bret Baier and Chris Wallace -- while criticizing his friend Trump.

    "Friend Donald has to learn this is public life," Murdoch tweeted.


    Erickson said while he likes Trump personally, "I just don't want someone on stage who gets a hostile question from a lady and his first inclination is to imply it was hormonal. It just was wrong."

    But the Trump campaign fired back, saying "this is just another example of weakness through being politically correct."

    "For all of the people who were looking forward to Mr. Trump coming, we will miss you," his campaign said. "Blame Erick Erickson, your weak and pathetic leader. We'll now be doing another campaign stop at another location."

    It was not immediately clear where that new campaign stop will be.

    But the RedState Gathering will go on without Trump. This year, the annual event features fellow GOP presidential candidates Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, Ted Cruz, Carly Fiorina, Mike Huckabee, Bobby Jindal, Rick Perry, Marco Rubio and Scott Walker.

    As for newly vacant spot at the RedState Gathering, Erickson has invited Kelly to replace Trump.

    I don't care one way or the other about Megan Kelly because I don't watch Fox News or much tv. Nor do I view this as a political party issue or politically correct one. If Trump made that blood comment about any Shredder's wife or daughter, I'd hope you would have a problem with him. Trump is a narcisstic misogynist.

    Apparently we have some folks running around that think it's fine and dandy to speak about a woman like that, "She's bleeding from her wherever" where i am from that can get you in a world of hurt.

    From a psychological perspective can anyone possibly think Trump is any different when the cameras aren't on? In his personal life he is the same way. he isn't bullshitting. Will say it again naracisstic misogynist.

    Trump to Gov. Christie: "When you hugged Obama, did you check to see if you still had your wallet?"

    Trump is a buffoon, but if he is pissing off murdoch, rinos and other professional pols, he's doing something right. And the fake anger about his comments regarding women is laughable.

    Pull your cock out and wave it at a woman, "he's just a good ole boy."

    Make a comment about a clearly biased debate host, "he's a misogynist."

    Oh its not fake, men from the south still treat women with respect. yes ma'am, open doors, pull seats out at the restaurant. And you are right, Trump is a buffoon.

    The most rabid "So-Called" right wingers i see are from blue states. Real Republicans from the south don't act like this moron. You will quickly learn that when he crashes and burns.
