GOP hopeful Carly Fiorina had her chance to respond to Donald Trump’s comments about her face in Rolling Stone magazine.
Trump, upon seeing Fiorina on television, said,
“Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?!” The laughter grows halting and faint behind him. “I mean, she’s a woman, and I’m not s’posedta say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?”
Asked to respond to Trump’s claim that he was talking about “her persona” not her looks, Fiorina responded, “It’s interesting to me, Mr. Trump said that he heard Mr. Bush very clearly, and what Mr. Bush said [on the issue of funding women’s health care]. I think women all over this country heard very clearly what Mr. Trump said.”
Her remark elicited a rousing applause from the audience. Once it quieted, Trump told the crowd, “I think she’s got a beautiful face, and I think she’s a beautiful woman.”
