In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Republican presidential candidate and Gary Busey-career enabler Donald Trump made some derogatory comments about fellow GOP candidate Carly Fiorina. Specifically, he mocked her face:
Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that? 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?
Trump later tried to back-peddle, saying he was talking about Fiorina’s persona, not her physical features. That’s odd, considering he specifically referenced her face, which is a physical feature. But trying to dissect an offensive Trump comment is pointless. It doesn’t matter what he says. He’s still going to be the front runner, at least until the field thins out.
But at last night’s second GOP debate, Fiorina had her revenge. When asked what she thought about Trump’s comments, she had this to say:
Not too shabby.
Soon after, Trump once again tried to distance himself from his previous remarks, claiming that Fiorina was beautiful and had “a beautiful face.”
First of all, that might be the most blatant lie Trump has told to date.
Second, the entire point is that it doesn’t matter if she’s “beautiful.” This isn’t the Miss USA pageant; it’s a presidential election. Eisenhower looked like a cross between Mr. Clean and Dobby from Harry Potter. So what?
Why does everything have to be so goddamn stupid?
