Donald Trump insulted his Republican rival Carly Fiorina’s physical appearance during an interview with Rolling Stone magazine published on Wednesday.

The real estate mogul was watching the news and providing his own play-by-play aboard his private jet. After mocking Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R), Fiorina appeared on the television, prompting Trump to remark, “Look at that face!” Per Rolling Stone:

When the anchor throws to Carly Fiorina for her reaction to Trump’s momentum, Trump’s expression sours in schoolboy disgust as the camera bores in on Fiorina. “Look at that face!” he cries. “Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?!” The laughter grows halting and faint behind him. “I mean, she’s a woman, and I’m not s’posedta say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?”

Fox News’ Megyn Kelly asked Fiorina to respond to Trump’s comments during a Wednesday night interview.

“Well, I think those comments speak for themselves,” Fiorina responded, adding that the “many, many, many, thousands of voters” who support her are “very serious.”

Kelly then asked Fiorina what she thinks Trump meant by his remark.

“I have no idea,” Fiorina said in response. “Honestly Megyn, I’m not going to spend a single cycle wondering what Donald Trump means. But maybe, just maybe, I’m getting under his skin a little bit because I am climbing in the polls.”

During a Thursday morning interview on “Fox and Friends,” Trump was asked if he did in fact make the comments quoted in Rolling Stone.

The real estate mogul first noted that “the pictures in the magazine were magnificent” and that “overall, it was probably a pretty good story.”

He then said, “Probably I did say something like that about Carly,” adding later that he said it “in a jocular manner.” He also said it wasn’t about her appearance.

“I’m talking about persona. I’m not talking about looks,” he said on Fox.

  1. When you possess nearly infinite sex appeal like Trump, you can sometimes say “tough love” things to ugly losers such as Carly Fiorina and everyone else on earth. We homely inferiors don’t understand the burden of a Human Love God.

    Carly and Heidi Klum should get together and split some ice cream.

  2. The difference between a civilized and uncivilized person is not what opinions he secretly holds. It’s the judgment he uses in deciding whether to share them with the public.

  3. His ego is so fucking huge, and it got him to where he is… now he’s overstepped the boundaries of decency and we’ll see him fall soon enough.

    Too bad, I hoped he’d stay in for a few more months.

  4.  "I mean, she's a woman, and I'm not s'posedta say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?" 
    

    That’s the thing that will undo him.

    Edit: Once he receives criticism for this (and he will) he’ll say he didn’t say it or it was taken out of context, mark my words.

  5. Yesterday he attacked Vets and Military people again… by saying his Military school… was better than the Military training and harder and now another personal attack on someone personal appearance. The Trump fans are stupidest people in America. Can you see a Pres Trump calling another world leader… ‘UGLY’… after a disagreement. I can and it ain’t a pretty site
