Presidential candidate Carly Fiorina decided to brush off remarks from GOP front-runner Donald Trump after the mogul-turned-TV star-turned-candidate took a shot at her appearance in a new cover story for Rolling Stone.
“Look at that face!” Trump told the magazine. “Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?!”
“I mean, she’s a woman, and I’m not s’posedta [sic] say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?” he added.
On Fox News Wednesday night, host Megyn Kelly asked former Hewlett-Packard CEO Fiorina what Trump could have meant by those remarks.
"You know, honestly Megyn, I'm not gonna spend a whole cycle wondering what Donald Trump means," Fiorina said with a laugh. "But maybe, just maybe, I'm getting under his skin a little bit, because I am climbing in the polls."
"I think those comments speak for themselves," Fiorina said earlier in the interview.
Kelly herself has been a target of Trump's ridicule. At one point last month, Trump said that during the first GOP debate, when Kelly grilled him on his treatment of women in the media, "[Y]ou could see there was blood coming out of her eyes ... Blood coming out of her wherever."
A CNN/ORC poll out Thursday morning shows Trump increasing his lead in the GOP field at 32 percent support. Fiorina, meanwhile, registers at 3 percent.
