JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

Carly Fiorina took a jab at Donald Trump this week, noting that his recent comment about her “face” was sexist.

During an interview with CNBC’s John Harwood published on Wednesday, Fiorina said that she has faced sexism since launching a bid for president, citing Trump’s remark as an example.

“Donald Trump has said many things about other candidates,” she said. “But he has not talked about their appearance.”

She also mentioned a question posed on “Fox and Friends” in April, when one of the hosts asked if a woman’s hormones disqualify Fiorina from serving as president.

Over the weekend, Fiorina referenced Trump’s comment about her appearance at a National Federation of Republican Women event in Phoenix, telling the audience, “This is the face of a 61-year-old woman. I am proud of every year and every wrinkle.”

While watching the news with a Rolling Stone reporter, Trump made a comment about Fiorina’s appearance, exclaiming, “Look at that face!”

Fiorina also told CNBC that she will go after Trump in her campaign, specifically his business record.

“Mr. Trump’s going to be hearing quite a lot from me,” she said.
