Carly Fiorina is either a professional victim or she hasn’t paid attention to the last two decades of politics. She is making the claim that only conservative women are judged for their looks and that Hillary Clinton skates through political life unscathed by sexism.
On Fox News, host John Roberts asked if there is a “double standard for Republican” women because the hosts of ABC’s “The View” mentioned that Fiorina looked “demented” with her fake debate smile.
‘Is there a double standard here for Republican women?’ Roberts asked. ‘I can’t imagine that they would say things like that about Hillary Clinton.’
‘Oh, ya think? Yeah’, Fiorina replied. ‘I think there’s a double standard… There is nothing more threatening to the liberal media in general and to Hillary Clinton in particular than a conservative woman. So, of course there’s a double standard.’
‘Conservative women from Sarah Palin to Michele Bachmann to Carly Fiorina are long used to this’, she added. ‘It will not stop me, it will not scare me.’
