CNN's Brooke Baldwin Angered Over The View's Attack On Carly Fiorina's Appearance

CNN's Brooke Baldwin has called out "The View" for dissing GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina's "demented" face on Thursday morning, just weeks after they took Donald Trump to task in September for criticizing women's appearances.

"Ladies, come on!" Baldwin said on the air Thursday. "Double standard much?"

While discussing Wednesday's Republican debate, the ABC daytime talk show panel consisting of Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Michelle Collins, Paula Faris and Raven-Symone joked that Fiorina's "face could be a Halloween mask," because it looked"demented."

"Why do we have to talk about her looks? Because she's a woman?" Baldwin continued. "All this yapping about women and their appearances, all I'm saying is we woman can be the worst to one another."

The TV journalist was frustrated because Behar called out Trump for mocking the former Hewlett-Packard CEO for her appearance.

"Look at that face!" he said. "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 supposed to say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?"
