Donald Trump is pretty happy with himself for how his meeting with Megyn Kelly worked out.

He heaped praise on the Fox News host to a crowd in Oregon on Friday and also made it clear that it was she who came to him.

“She called me. She said I’d like to see you,” he said. “Now, if I was wrong, she wouldn’t have done that. And I respect her for doing it.”

“She called me. She said I’d like to see you. She came to Trump Tower. I didn’t go to Fox. And we didn’t meet on neutral territory,” the presumptive Republican presidential nominee said. “Megyn called me, I really do, I have a lot of respect for her. She called me, we sat down, we talked. Everything is fine. I mean, everything is fine.”

He blamed the media for misrepresenting what he said about Kelly in August when he said she had “blood coming out of her wherever.”

“I said nothing wrong! Because I never finished my statement. Remember I said, ‘Like blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her wherever.’ I was talking her ears or her nose,” he told the crowd. “Everyone was talking, ‘Oh, that’s terrible what he said.’ I didn’t say anything!”

“You know why I didn’t finish the sentence? Because I love what I am doing so much. And I didn’t want to waste any more time,” he told the crowd.

“So when I didn’t finish the sentence, they all figured coming from some place else,” he continued. “And because they have all dirty minds — I never even thought of about it. I was thinking of ears or nose. But that’s it.”

Trump emphasized that his feud with Kelly was all in the past.

“Megyn came up and we had a great talk and that was it. And I’ll do her show. In fact, I’ve done her show. And I loved it,” Trump said. “Except I didn’t like the way I looked. It was the worst I ever looked on television. Maybe she set me up! Maybe she set me — it’s the worst I’ve ever looked on television. To me, the look is important. You know? The look is important.”
