Wednesday on ABC’s “The View,” an incident involving Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton having laughed at a former Hewlett-Packard employee’s stated desire to “strangle” Carly Fiorina, the company’s former CEO who is now a candidate for the GOP presidential nomination, was the topic of discussion.
According to show panelist Joy Behar, Clinton should not have laughed at the remark and the pushback would have been much harsher if it had been Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump laughing about similar comment.
“In all fairness, let’s be fair, if somebody had said that to Donald Trump and he had laughed, we would be ripping him a new one and she did not,” Behar said. “She should have stood up to him, I’m sorry, I have to say that.”
