GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina will take her feud with the hosts of “The View” directly to the ABC show itself on Friday.

“My message to the ladies of ‘The View’ is, ‘man-up,’ ” she said on Fox News’s “America’s Election Headquarters" on Monday. “The Obama administration, for example, has been bad for women. Planned Parenthood is harvesting body parts.

“If you don’t like those facts and those messages, then man up and debate me on them,” she added. "Don’t sink to talking about my face.”

“The View” co-host Michelle Collins mocked Fiorina’s appearance last week during the third GOP presidential debate on Oct. 28.

“She looked demented,” Collins said of Fiorina’s smiling during the contest in Boulder, Colo.

Co-host Joy Behar then joked that she would enjoy seeing the former Hewlett-Packard CEO’s visage turned into a Halloween mask.

Fiorina argued Monday that their remarks are personal insults aimed at discrediting the power of her political ideas.

“I think what this points out is that liberals — and unfortunately, this includes liberal women — don’t like the message, they attack the messenger,” she said.

“I don’t need an apology,” Fiorina added. "None of these liberal women scare me.”

Fiorina’s booking Monday follows her fierce condemnation of “The View” hosts the day before on “Fox News Sunday.”

“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 of Behar and Collins.

“The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg vowed on Monday that Fiorina would be treated with dignity.

“I do want to point out, Carly, that the last time you were – and you’ll see b-roll running – we welcomed you to our table,” Goldberg said, according to The Wrap.

“We helped raise your profile so you would be included in the sea of men,” she added, referring to the other GOP presidential contenders. “We were respectful and gave you your due.

“You have to know the difference between when somebody’s coming for you, when somebody is paying you a compliment and when somebody is saying, ‘here’s my observation,” the comic added. “If you can get that together, maybe you can be president.”

Fiorina’s campaign refused to comment Monday on how their candidate’s second appearance on the show came about.

“We don’t comment on the booking process,” press secretary Anna Epstein told The Hill in an email.
