Donald Trump is once again in hot water over another controversial statement. On Thursday, he explained his "look at her face" comment on Carly Fiorina.
The billionaire reportedly told Rolling Stone that he was not supposed to say bad things about a woman, but he could not imagine Carly Fiorina being the next president. Donald Trump's comments, which were published on Wednesday, came less than a month after he was slammed over his seemingly misogynistic comments on Fox anchor Megyn Kelly, according to the San Francisco Gate.
"Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?!" Trump allegedly told Rolling Stone. "I mean, she's a woman, and I'm not s'posedta say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?"
A day after her comments were published, Trump appeared on Fox News to deny that he was talking about his political rival's physical features. Instead, he explained that he was talking about Fiorina's "persona," the report details.
However, Trump's remarks on Fiorina have already gained criticisms from former Florida governor Jeb Bush and Wisonsin Governor Scott Walker. Both took to social media to denounce Trump's comments and defend the female GOP presidential candidate, the Washington Post reports.
Bush called Trump'statement "demeaning" and "inappropriate," especially coming from someone who is vying for presidency. He added that Fiorina and the United States deserve someone better. Walker, on the other hand, said the real estate mogul's "personal attacks" should come to an end, the report relays.
Last month, the Republican presidential candidate also came under fire for suggesting that Kelly was just asking him tough questions because of her menstrual cycle.
Fiorina was not the only casualty in Trump's war of words on Thursday. He also criticized retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, his closest presidential rival, for appearing to question his faith. He attacked Carson's calm appearance and downplayed his medical accomplishments. Trump went as far as declaring that Carson will not become the next U.S. president.
Meanwhile, Fiorina struck back and told Kelly on Wednesday that Trump was just probably unnerved because her poll ratings are now going up.
Despite the backlash thrown Trump's way, a recent CNN/ORC poll showed the billionaire still climbing up the polls. On Thursday, the survey showed that Donald Trump had the support of 32 percent of GOP voters, with Fiorina trailing behind at 19 and Bush at 9.
