Do Trump supporters care what part of Megyn Kelly's body he was thinking of?

By now everyone is aware of Donald Trump's infamous comment that Megyn Kelly was so vicious that she had "blood coming out of her eyes...and wherever."  It's the wherever that got Trump into trouble, with many people thinking he was making a blow that was literally below the belt.  Trump responded that it was her nose that was metaphorically bleeding.

Compared to issues like the debt, illegal immigration, and Iran getting nukes, this is clearly the most important topic to be focusing on, right?  So, my take on this:

1) Fox News clearly has a man in the race (Bush) and has men it doesn't want in the race (Trump by continual attacks, Cruz by neglect).  Kelly's extensive focus on this issue seemed design to knock him out of the race.

You once told a contestant on Celebrity Apprentice it would be a pretty picture to see her on her knees.

This comment, in context, clearly was not sexual at all.  It was a reference to an Apprentice contestant who was begging for something.  Fox News also had a focus group immediately afterward that showed people turned off by Trump, but (unscientific) online polls show support.

2) Donald Trump is doing a tremendous service by making issues talkable that the media have made untalkable.  There has been so much media pressure to equate criticism of illegal aliens with racism that politicians have been cowed into silence.  Trump unapologetically has made it safe to talk about that again.  That's a big thing.

3) Donald Trump also has a long history of giving money to Democrats, and supporting amnesty as recently as 2012.  I don't trust him or believe that he believes what he's saying.  But still, he's doing a great service by #2 above.

4) Whatever the lack of appropriateness of these comments, it is obvious that Trump exercises no discretion over what he says, which is a terrible feature in a presidential candidate.  I think it likely that he will destroy himself with his own comments in the next few months.  It's not that I feel that these particular comments make him ineligible to be the nominee; it's that his quality of being unable to exercise restraint that will make him a bad nominee.

How do you feel about his comments?  Does your judgment of Trump depend on what part of Kelly's body  he was really referring to?  Do you think his sometimes offensive style will be a turn-off to voters in the general election...or just the breath of fresh air to get elected?
