Donald Trump is still waving his bloody flag and refusing to apologize in the aftermath of describing Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly as having “blood coming out of her wherever” when she challenged him about calling women dogs during Thursday’s GOP debate.

Plenty of women aren’t buying that explanation, and are taking the opportunity to school Trump on the realities of the female reproductive system. Following the lead of Femsplain’s Amber Gordon, who started the hashtag #PeriodsAreNotAnInsult, women have been tweeting at Trump with real-time updates on their menstrual statuses.
