This is great.
In the wake of the recent debacle that was the CNBC Republican presidential primary debate, the women of “The View” made some rather caustic comments regarding businesswoman and candidate Carly Fiorina.
One of the things they joked about was Fiorina’s wide grin that she sported to start off the debate, calling her face “demented” and saying it looked like a Halloween mask.
Of course Fiorina called them out on the hypocritical double standard, seeing as these same ladies had gone after billionaire businessman and candidate Donald Trump after he made his own comments regarding Fiorina’s face.
Fiorina got her revenge against the ladies of “The View” in person on Friday though, appearing live on their program and confronting them over the jokes they had made, TheBlaze reported.
Co-host Whoopi Goldberg asked Fiorina if she would develop “tougher skin” to “accept some of the humorous things that will be said” about her.
If you meant your comment about my face being demented and a Halloween mask as humorous, so be it. I guess you misinterpreted Donald Trump’s comments about my face and thought those weren’t humorous, because you kind of took him to task,” Fiorina replied, adding, “I have a real thick skin.”
Co-host joy Behar deflected though, and attempted to parse a difference between the comments made by Trump and those by “comediennes” such as herself.
“You know what, Joy? You can say whatever you want,” Fiorina proclaimed. “You always have and you always will.”
Co-host Michelle Collins, the one who had called Fiorina’s face “demented,” later asked if the candidate had anybody “coaching you to act a different way or to be a different way.”
Fiorina took exception to the phrasing of the question, replying, “Well, first of all, I don’t have people coaching me to act a different way or be a different way.”
“I am who I am. … There’s a time to smile and there’s time to be serious,” she added.
