Some of the co-hosts of ABC’s The View are under fire this week for a brutal – and superficial – review of GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina’s performance during Wednesday’s debate.
“She kicked off her thing saying, ‘You know, people tell me that I didn’t smile enough during the last debate,’” Michelle Collins said of Fiorina. “She looked demented. I mean, she did not – her mouth did not downturn one time.”
Joy Behar chimed in with her suggestion that Fiorina’s face resembled a Halloween mask.
Fox & Friends co-host Elizabeth Hasselbeck, who previously hosted The View, was among numerous women who took offense to the crass characterization of the candidate’s appearance.
Hasselbeck called such behavior “faux feminism,” going on to explain that its practitioners “support all women only if they agree exactly with what we say, only if their politics align with mine and only if they support every single thing that I’ve laid out so far.”
Co-hosts Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade added that Collins would likely never say anything remotely as offensive about Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton.
Hasselbeck then issued Collins a direct challenge to “actually have Mrs. Fiorina on the program and say that to her face or apologize, one or the other.”
She told Collins that people need to “see who you really are.”
