Carly Fiorina laughs off Trump’s cracks about her looks; were they taken out of context?

fiorina artPresidential contender Carly Fiorina was pure class Wednesday when Fox News’ Megyn Kelly gave her the chance to respond to crude remarks by Donald Trump in a magazine interview — remarks Trump maintained Thursday were taken out of context.

“Honestly, Megyn, I’m not going to spend a single cycle wondering what Donald Trump means,” Fiorina said during an interview on “The Kelly File.”

Fiorina was commenting on a lengthy Rolling Stone profile in which Trump had made fun of Fiorina’s looks.

“Look at that face!” Trump told Rolling Stone. “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?”

Fiorina told Kelly that Trump’s comments speak for themselves, and that the “many, many thousands” of supporters helping her climb in the polls are indeed “very serious.”

At the end of the day though, Fiorina said she had no idea what Trump’s point was in the personal attack.

“But maybe, just maybe,”she added. “I’m getting under his skin a little bit, because I am climbing in the polls.”

Trump responded today on Fox & Friends, saying his comments in Rolling Stone were being misconstrued.

“I’m talking about persona. I’m not talking about looks,” Trump said. “Although when I get criticized about my hair… nobody does a story.

“The fact is, I probably did say something like that about Carly in a jocular manner,” he said. “She is at me constantly.”

The Trump-Fiorina feud made its way to Twitter where Trump’s comments continued the debate:

Here’s at least one Trump supporter who’s growing weary of the personal attacks:
