Carly Fiorina Fires Back at ‘The View’: ‘I’m Tired of Being Insulted by Liberal Feminists’


Carly Fiorina fired back at the hosts of ABC talk show The View on Sunday for making disparaging remarks about her appearance during an episode last week.

On Thursday’s episode of The View, co-hosts Michelle Collins and Joy Behar poked fun at Fiorina’s appearance during the opening remarks of last week’s CNBC Republican presidential debate.

“She looked demented,” Collins said of Fiorina. “Her mouth did not downturn one time,” she added, to which Behar replied, “It looked like a Halloween mask.”

In an interview with Fox News Sunday (FNS), Fiorina called out the hosts for their double standard with conservative women, and said the hosts never would have made similar remarks about Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

“I think there’s a double standard,” Fiorina said. “It’s funny: I was on The View several months ago; they said none of that to my face. There is nothing more threatening to the liberal media, in general, and to Hillary Clinton, in particular, than a conservative woman.”

“So of course, there’s a double standard,” Fiorina continued, adding, “It will not stop me, it will not scare me, and maybe, the ladies of The View, if I come back on again, let’s see if they have the guts to say that to my face.”

FNS host John Roberts then asked Fiorina whether the co-hosts of The View were “out of touch,” after a recent incident in which Collins and Behar mocked the nursing profession and were forced to apologize after losing several major advertisers.

“Well, I think what these women represent is a set of liberal feminists who believe if you do not agree with them on their liberal orthodoxy, that you don’t count, that somehow, you’re not a woman,” Fiorina replied. She continued:

You see, I know that women represent half the nation, and so of course, our views are going to be as diverse as men’s. I also know that unless and until women’s potential is fully unlocked in the country–and women have been crushed under the Obama economy–that we will not be as good a nation as we can be. And frankly, I’m tired of being insulted by liberal feminists who talk about “women’s issues,” when the reality is, every issue is a woman’s issue. … So I am really sorry that I don’t agree with the women of The View.
