Quote of the Day:

"Look at that face!" Trump told the magazine while sitting with a Rolling Stone reporter as Fiorina appeared on TV. "Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president."

CNN report

By now, you've heard what Trump said about Carly Fiorina's face.

I agree with the unflappable Fiorina, who so far has been too smart to take offense and play the victim. Fiorina says that Trump's jab means that she is getting under Trump's skin because she is climbing in the polls.

I hope Fiorina hasn't reversed and gone all victim, because I thought her response was the perfect put down for a bully. She's played this right and, if she continues to do so, it's nothing but good attention for her.

Trump obviously realizes that he made a boo boo in attacking another popular Republican and is uncharacteristically trying to revise his remarks. NBC reports:

In an interview with FOX News on Thursday morning, Trump did not dispute the quote but said that he made the comment in a "jocular manner" and that he was referring to Fiorina's "persona."

"Probably I did say something like that about Carly," Trump said. "I'm talking about persona. I'm not talking about look."

Well, that should do it, Donald–it's her persona. Not sure that makes it all better.

You can decry sexism, and Trump does seem to have a penchant for picking on women. But he has the same penchant for being rude and crude about men.

But here's what I will say on the sexism front, if Trump thinks he can get by making vulgar and petty attacks on women like Megan Kelly, with whom he verbally tussled after the Fox debate, and Fiorina, he's got another think coming.

These women can take care of themselves and Trump only looks like a bully and a fool. The Fiorina gaffe is going to hurt Trump and help Fiorina.
