Whoopi Goldberg Carly FiorinaThe feud between Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina and the hosts of ABC’s “The View” is heating up as her next appearance on the show approaches.

On Sunday the former Hewlett-Packard CEO told Fox News that she is tired of being insulted by liberal feminists who talk about women’s issues when the reality is every issue is a woman’s issue,” and laid a direct challenge to the female hosts of the liberal ABC talk show to “say it to my face.”

They will get that chance on Friday when Fiorina returns to the show.

One of the co-hosts, Academy Award winner Whoppi Goldberg , took exception to the comments and took the credit for Fiorina’s rise in the Republican polls.

“Carly will be here on Friday,” she announced. “I will not, but I do want to point out, Carly, that the last time you were here — and you’ll see b-roll running — we welcomed you to our table. We helped raise your profile so you would be included in the sea of men. You weren’t worried about any kind of Republican backlash — nobody was backlashing. We were respectful and gave you your due.

“Just so we’re all clear,” Goldberg continued, “You have to know the difference between when somebody’s coming for you, when somebody is paying you a compliment and when somebody is saying, ‘here’s my observation.’ If you can get that together, maybe you can be president.”
