Hosts of the all-women daytime talkshow “The View” agreed that Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina’s face “looked demented” as part of their day after debate analysis.
Co-host Michelle Collins started in: “You know what Carly said which really made me laugh? She kicked off her thing saying, ‘You know, people tell me that I didn’t smile enough during the last debate.’”
“She looked demented!” Collins said, with an exaggerated smile spread across her face. “Her mouth did not downturn one time.”
Joy Behar chimed in, saying she wished “Smiling Fiorina” was a Halloween mask.
“Can you imagine? It’d give me nightmares,” Collins responded.
Paula Faris tried to temper Collins’ digression, saying “I think demented is a strong word,” but Whoopi Goldberg defended using the term.
“As a comic, she means demented. I think as a comic we have to stand up for the words we use,” Goldberg said.
During Wednesday evening’s debate, Fiorina was referencing the sexist attacks about her appearance often leveled by her male opponents in response to the first question about the candidates’ weaknesses.
