Donald Trump says he can't recall specifics of insulting women after Fox News' Megyn Kelly asked him about calling them "fat pigs," "dogs," "slobs," and "disgusting animals" in last night's debate. In their exchange, Trump joked that he was only referring to Rosie O'Donnell and said, "I don't frankly have time for total political correctness." Today, Trump questioned whether he actually ever used those insults. "You know, some of the statements she made about the women, I don't recognize those words whatsoever," he said on ABC's Good Morning America. ''We're going to take a very serious look at it."

He made similar remarks on MSNBC's Morning Joe, but news outlets have reported on the incidents referenced in Kelly's question. Those incidents included saying a New York Times columnist had the "face of a dog" and calling a lawyer who wanted a break to pump milk for her baby "disgusting." Trump also has called O'Donnell a "fat pig," a "slob" and an "animal," according to several published reports. (More Donald Trump stories.)
