“Pretty boy” Trump told Rolling Stone: “Look at that face. Would anyone vote for that?”
He was talking about the Winsome Carly who is the only woman in the large field of Republicans vying for their party’s 2016 presidential nomination.
Trump, leading in the polls among the Republican contenders, made the remarks while watching Fiorina, the former maker of expensive printer ink, on TV.
“Can you imagine that, the face of our next president. I mean, she’s a woman, and I’m not s’posedta say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?”
Fiorina, in an interview on Fox News Channel, said it was probably because she was getting under his skin a little bit because I am climbing in the polls.
Looks are important to the bouffant Trump who apparently favours style over substance. When he was interviewed on Fox News by host Sean Hannity that he had not even looked at a mirror so he hoped he was okay.
“I hope I look fine.” Since it was Fox, Hannity reassured him that he looked great even though he looked like Donald Trump.
It was not the first time Trump has taunted Fiorina. A month ago he tweeted: “I just realised that if you listen to Carly Fiorina for more than 10 minutes straight, you develop a massive headache. She has zero chance!”
It is worthwhile pointing out that after Tory comedy candidate for London Boris Johnson was actually elected, it made it just that fraction more possible that Trump could end up as the Republican’s candidate.
