Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina picked a fight with Donald Trump on Twitter Friday, telling him there’s no excuse for his Megyn Kelly insults.

“I stand with Megyn Kelly,” Fiorina tweeted Friday night. She tweeted directly at Kelly, but stopped short of using Trump’s handle in another tweet: “Mr. Trump: There. is. no. excuse.”

A spokeswoman for Trump did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

After Kelly asked Trump whether it’s presidential to call women he disagrees with “fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals,” in the Republican primary debate Thursday, Trump told reporters she had “behaved badly.” And he endorsed a tweet Friday calling Kelly a “bimbo.” (RELATED: Erikson To Trump: You’re Fired!)

Fiorina is in the spotlight after a strong showing in the Fox News “undercard” debate Thursday. A spokeswoman for her campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment. (RELATED: Fiorina Shuts Down Hillary, Digs Into Chris Matthews)
