Carly Fiorina slams 'The View': 'I am tired of being insulted by Liberal feminists'

Who Is Carly Fiorina?

Carly Fiorina is firing back at the ladies of "The View" after they mocked her appearance saying she looked "demented" at Wednesday's Republican presidential debate.

"I am tired of being insulted by liberal feminists who talk about women's issues when the reality is every issue is a woman's issue," Fiorina said on "Fox News Sunday."


"I was on 'The View' several months ago, they said none of that to my face," Fiorina told host John Roberts, adding that the ABC hosts would never say anything like that about Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton. "There is nothing more threatening to the liberal media, in general and to Hillary Clinton, in particular, than a conservative woman."

Fiorina's statements came three days after "View" hosts Michelle Collins and Joy Behar made fun of her smile on Thursday's show.

"She looked demented," Collins remarked about Fiorina's appearance at the CNBC debate. "Her mouth did not down turn one time." Behar then chimed in with, "It looked like a Halloween mask."

Fiorina isn't the only woman taking issue with the comments.

A day later, "Fox & Friends" host and former "View" personality Elisabeth Hasselbeck also blasted the ladies of her former TV home.

"This is a prime example of faux feminism right there," Hasselbeck said on "Fox & Friends" Friday. "The only woman they support is someone who thinks exactly like they do, it's a lack of openness and compassion."
