Carly Fiorina, the only female Republican presidential candidate, has spoken up in defense of Megyn Kelly, after the Fox News Channel anchor was the target of some combative criticism by Donald Trump.

As Breitbart News reported, Trump was unhappy with some of the questions Kelly asked him when she was moderating Thursday evening’s GOP Debate, and in an appearance on CNN Tonight Friday, said that Kelly had “blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever.” Many interpreted this comment as inappropriate or even sexist.

Late Friday evening, Fiorina posted two tweets stating clearly her objection to Trump’s comments and support for Kelly, saying “Mr. Trump: There. Is. No. Excuse.” and that she stood with Kelly:

While Trump has been at the top of the national polls recently, Fiorina has been considered a longshot candidate. This week may be a turnaround for her, however, after her highly-praised performance at the GOP debate, where she didn’t just dominate the early “undercard” debate, but was also favorably viewed as superior to many of the top ten candidates who were invited to the prime time debate.
