'So Offensive': Taya Kyle Slams Trump for Insulting Comment About Fiorina
Taya Kyle went after Donald Trump on "Outnumbered" over his insulting "look at that face" comment about Carly Fiorina.
According to a new Rolling Stone piece, Trump saw Fiorina on television and remarked:
“Look at that face!” he cries. “Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?!” The laughter grows halting and faint behind him. “I mean, she’s a woman, and I’m not s’posedta say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?”
Fiorina was asked about it last night by Megyn Kelly, simply saying, “I think those comments speak for themselves.” She said maybe her recent rise in the polls is "getting under Trump's skin."
On "Fox and Friends" this morning, Trump claimed that the comment was not about Fiorina's appearance, only about "her persona." He argued that people criticize his hair all the time, yet it's never a news story.
Kyle reacted by saying that even her young children know that they cannot behave in this way.
"He's creative with marketing and creative with the way he can get ratings to go forward. That's great, but that's not leading. I find the fact that he would criticize people for their physical characteristics, or even if he says it's her persona, the way he said it was so offensive," said Kyle, questioning whether Trump is "well-versed" enough on the issues.
Andrea Tantaros applauded Fiorina for her cool response, but doubted that Trump's support will suffer.
"She could have easily said something like, 'Well, you're not exactly a 10,' or made a hair joke or compared his face to Grumpy Cat," she joked.
Tantaros said Trump's message about America "winning" again is resonating, even without specific policies being put forth.
Kyle answered that the country won't win very much if Trump insults people in other countries with statements like this.
