Fiorina: Tina Fey ‘Sexist’

John McCain adviser Carly Fiorina called comedian Tina Fey “sexist” and “disrespectful” Monday in response to Fey’s impression of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) on Saturday Night Live.

Asked what she thought of Fey’s impression on MSNBC, Fiorina conceded only that “well, I think that she looked a bit like her.”

“I think that, of course, the portrait was very dismissive of the substance of Sarah Palin, and so in that sense, they were defining Hillary Clinton as very substantive, and Sarah Palin as totally superficial,” Fiorina said.

“I think that continues the line of argument that is disrespectful in the extreme, and yes, I would say, sexist in the sense that just because Sarah Palin has different views than Hillary Clinton does not mean that she lacks substance. She has a lot of substance.”
