Fiorina slams ‘The View’

GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina is daring the hosts of “The View” to insult her to her face.

In an interview on “Fox News Sunday,” Fiorina ripped the hosts of the show, calling them "liberal feminists" and saying they are threatened by her.

She also said there was a double standard after two hosts of “The View” described her as wearing a Halloween mask at last week’s debate, saying the comment would never have been made about Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

“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 said.

“And conservative women, from Sarah Palin to Michele Bachmann to Carly Fiorina, are long used to this.”

The former Hewlett-Packard executive also dared the show’s hosts to bring her back and make the same comments to her face.

“It will not stop me, it will not scare me and maybe the ladies of ‘The View,’ if I come on again, let’s see if they have the guts to say that to my face,” she said.

During a segment of their program on Thursday, “The View” host Michelle Collins noted Fiorina’s comment during the debate that people told her she should have smiled more.

“She looked demented,” Collins said of the smile that Fiorina then made on the stage.

Co-host Joy Behar then said that there should be a Fiorina Halloween mask.

Fiorina said she was “tired” of the insults.

“Well I think what these women represent is a set of liberal feminists who believe that if you do not agree with them on their liberal orthodoxy, that you don’t count,” she said when asked if the hosts were out of touch.

“I’m tired of being insulted by liberal feminists who talk about women’s issues when the reality is every issue is a women’s issue, from the economy to ISIS to Russia to healthcare to education to the national debt, women care about all of that.”
