During a discussion of Fiorina’s new campaign ad during Tuesday’s episode, Behar said, “It’s not your face, it’s your policy.”
“She has the nerve to use the term women’s suffrage when she’s against Planned Parenthood and women’s maternity leave?” Behar said. “She’s against Obamacare. She uses the term women’s suffrage? She should be ashamed of herself.”
But co-host Paula Faris defended Fiorina: “Robin Roberts, a dear colleague of all of ours, she said ‘You take your mess and make it your message.’ What Donald Trump said about her face she’s turning into a message. That’s the beauty of life. When somebody shoves something in your face, you turn it around and own it.”
Trump came under fire, again, when he insulted Fiorina’s apperance during an interview with Rolling Stone. “Look at that face!” he said. “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 supposed to say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?”
During the same segment, Whoopi Goldberg had to give new co-host Michelle Collins a gentle reminder not to insult “The View” creator Barbara Walters after Collins joked that Fiorina used “that Barbara Walters lens” in the ad.
“She never actually used that lens,” Goldberg told Collins. “Barbara, she didn’t mean it. Don’t do it. Don’t do it, Barbara,” referring to Walters’ tendency to still call in to the show’s control room with tips for producers.
