Carly Fiorina will return to ABC’s “The View” on Friday after the show’s hosts mocked her smile during the last debate, describing her face as a “demented” Halloween mask last week.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck, co-host of “Fox and Friends” and former host at “The View,” on Friday blasted the hosts’ “faux feminism” and challenged the ABC show to have Fiorina back on the show.

And the Republican presidential candidate told “Fox and Friends” on Monday that she would appear on “The View” this week.

“I don’t need an apology,” Fiorina said. “But I think what this points out is that liberals, and unfortunately that includes liberal women, when they don’t like the message, they attack the messenger.”

“My message to the ladies of The View is man up,” she continued. “If you want to debate me on policies – the Obama administration for example has been bad for women, Planned Parenthood is harvesting baby parts – if you don’t like those facts and those messages, man up and debate me on them. But don’t sink to talking about my face.”
