A day doesn’t go by where we don’t have another personal insult thrown out by GOP White House hopeful Donald Trump.
This time the victim was former Hewlett-Packard exec Carly Fiorina (the only female in the Republican pack) and her appearance.
From NBC News:
In a new interview in Rolling Stone released late Wednesday, GOP frontrunner Trump said of the former HP chief “Look at that face!?”
“Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?!” the magazine quotes Trump as saying while he and his staff watch a television appearance by Fiorina.
The real estate mogul reportedly added: “I mean, she’s a woman, and I’m not s’posedta say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?”
When Fiorina was asked about the comment on Megyn Kelly’s FOX News show last night, the former HP exec downplayed the issue.
“Maybe, just maybe, I’m getting under his skin a little bit because I am climbing in the polls,” she said.
Addressing the story this morning, Trump attempted to back pedal. You see, when he said “her face” what he meant was “her persona.”
“Probably I did say something like that about Carly,” Trump said. “I’m talking about persona. I’m not talking about look.”
