Add presidential contender Carly Fiorina to the list of the targets of Donald Trump’s Twitter outbursts.
According to CNN, the former Hewlett-Packard executive jabbed at Trump in an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” on Sunday saying that “women understood” he was referring to menstruation when Trump said Megyn Kelly had “blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her — wherever.”
Fiorina said, “I started out as a secretary. And as I made my way up in the business world, a male-dominated business world, I’ve had lots of men imply that, um — I was unfit for decision-making because maybe I was having my period. So I’ll say it, OK?”
Trump made his comment about moderator Kelly after Thursday’s presidential debate where Kelly questioned him about past statements he made against women.
After Fiorina’s comment, the real estate mogul swung back Sunday afternoon, making Fiorina the latest victim of his social media outbursts.
Trump tweeted: “I just realized that if you listen to Carly Fiorina for more than ten minutes straight, you develop a massive headache. She has zero chance!”
According to PolitiFact, the news shows served as the starting point for GOP debate fallout Sunday, with most of the political discussion focused on Trump’s personal critique of Fox News host Megyn Kelly.
No host tried harder to make Trump explain why he said Kelly had “blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever” than NBC’s Chuck Todd, writes PolitiFact.
“You went after popular Bette Midler, you went after people like Gail Collins,” Todd said. “Why do you have to go after the look? This is what some women find offensive, Mr. Trump, is that you go to looks. … It’s something out of Mad Men, sir.”
