Even More Infighting: Trump Vs Fiorina

CNN reports:

Add Carly Fiorina to the list of the targets of Donald Trump’s Twitter outbursts. The former Hewlett-Packard executive hit Trump in an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” on Sunday saying that “women understood” he was referring to menstruation when Trump said Megyn Kelly had “blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her — wherever” after Thursday night’s GOP debate. Hours later, the real estate mogul swung back Sunday afternoon, making her the latest victim of his social media attacks. CNN has asked Fiorina’s campaign for its response to Trump’s tweet.

  • If So If Not

    If Fiorina has balls, she’ll tell Trump to go fuck himself straight to hell with his mother’s crucifix up his ass.

    If not, she’ll refer to Mr. Trump as a divisive voice in the party like Jeb Bush did.

    • Gustav2

      If Fiorina had balls she would have a chance at the top spot. As it is, VP on a losing ticket will have to do

      • GayOldLady

        So True!

      • GayOldLady

        In the language of the moment “she be the token woman”.

    • Chucktech

      If the tenor of the “debates” continues apace, Fiorina may do just that, right up there on the dais.

  • Trump definitely has a problem with powerful women. His idea of the proper place for women is in his serial harem; quiet, obedient, and only visible when he wants them around.

    (My first post on the new site – looks good JMG!!!)

    • AndyinChicago

      It’s not just powerful women, it’s all women. And to be fair, he has a problem most men not named Donald Trump.

    • Elliott

      Serial harem!! I love you for that!

    • Herald

      He has trouble with women!

    • What Kind of Name is Donald?

      The only women with whom Trump doesn’t have problems is the women whom he’s been able to buy, and the only reason he doesn’t have problems with them is because he owns them.

      How many hookers have there been? How many extra-marital affairs? How many abortions has he financed? How much does he pay Ivana, Marla, et al? No self-respecting woman would stay on his payroll.

      Watch Trump in the documentary “You’ve Been Trumped!” interacting with MIss Scotland, telling her she’s beautiful, then remarking offhand to one of the flunkies in his entourage that she should work in Sales & Marketing for his environment-raping new golf course. Because clearly no woman would have the capacity to work in finance, or to negotiate a hard real estate deal—that’s ‘testicle work’. In Donald’s world, semen > menstrual blood, always.

    • Jack

      There’s no question that he has problems with powerful women. I don’t think it’s limited to powerful women, though. More like any woman who stands up to him. Oh, AndyinChicago beat me to it. Well, I want to comment on the new site, too.

  • Treg Brown

    This is like watching Dick Cheney insult Donald Rumsfeld, and won’t someone please pass the popcorn?

    ETA: Like the new site Joe!

  • Todd20036

    This is only going to help Trump. And Trump knows this. Even tea baggers who think Trump is wrong on this respect him for being this overt. They love him for that, if nothing else

    • MattM

      Exactly. You can’t reason with crazy. Angry, entitled white men refuse to be shown the error of their ways.

  • Michael Rush

    he forgot to call her a pig and a moron …

    she did call him on the Mexico comment in july ….

    Carly Fiorina distanced herself from fellow GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump on Tuesday, telling reporters, “he doesn’t represent me, and he doesn’t represent my party.”

    “You know Donald Trump is what he has always been, a tireless self-promoter,” Fiorina told reporters “So he’s going to say lots of outrageous things, as he always does.”

    • LovesIrony

      and she is a tiresome failure.What has she done since getting the boot from hp? a failed run for senate, he is no more a self-promoter than she.

      • tcinsf

        Agreed. I can assure you, the majority of the Bay Area cringes at the idea of Fiorina having any kind of leadership position. And Mizz Carly criticizing anybody else for self-promotion is laughable.

      • TreGibbs

        Nailed it.

  • Michael Smith

    Donald Trump is the worst thing to happen to the Republican Party since the 19th Amendment, and it’s great.

    • Todd20036

      No, that “honor” goes to Ronald Reagan, who let the religious right into the GOP, accelerating the evolution of the GOP to the GOTP.

      Either that, or the Southern Strategy (was that Nixon?) who started courting the bigots.

      • GayOldLady

        Yep, it was Tricky Dick

        • Bad Tom

          It appears there’s a serious competition for worst thing that ever happened to the GOP.

  • bkmn

    Popcorn anyone?

    • Chucktech

      God, no, I’m full of the stuff now…

      • Jean-Marc in Canada

        And the election is still a year away. That’s going to be a lot of popcorn 🙂

        • Chucktech

          Yeah, I’m gonna have to lay off popcorn for a while. Maybe switch over to gummy bears, or Milk Duds, or M&M’s, or something else from the concession stand…

    • ScottJL

      With all the infighting I’m getting pretty.. regular.. thanks to all this fiber!

  • oikos
  • GayOldLady

    Is it just me or do all of Donald Trump tweets and comments sound like they came from the brain of a pissed off NYC cab driver? He has 12 billion dollars and no class.

    • clay

      One doesn’t need to be poor to be trash.

      • wineflask

        And conversely.

      • GayOldLady

        I’d never equate poor with “trash”. Trashy is as trashy does, rich, poor and everything in between.

      • Eebadee-eebadee-thatsallfolks

        Not sure how their market is now, but about a year ago I perused the properties for sale in Las Vegas. Oh my! Oh my my my! So much money and so little taste.

    • tcinsf

      No, they sound like a 12 yo schoolyard bully. And I love your “no class” comment. I sneer every time that guy accuses someone of having no class, which is one of his most common insults. By any definition of class, Trump has none. He also has absolutely zero taste. I remember going to his first big building in NYC (Trump Plaza? Whatever it was) in the mid eighties, walking around, thinking “yeesh….” turning around and walking out. Garish crapola.

      • KCMC

        Bully, surprise? At 12, he was being shipped off to military school.

    • Chucktech

      Assuming the pissed off NYC cab driver was also a sophomore in high school, definitely.

    • Bad Tom

      No amount of money can buy class. It has to come from the heart. And Trump doesn’t have one.

    • Oscarlating Wildely

      Some of the best conversations I’ve had in NYC have been with the city’s cab drivers.

      Trump isn’t worth their skid marks.

    • Kenneth Hwang

      People who live in poor can still afford grace and mannerism. No amount of money can buy what was not taught: consideration, gentleness, etc…

  • Sam_Handwich

    This really all goes back to the Bush/Cheney wrecking ball. The GOP has been operating with no coherent public policy vision; all they have is a laundry list of petty gripes with America.

    I’d like to think that Trump is conniving enough to have gotten in just to highlight the party’s chaos and essentially clinch it for Hillary. But he’s in it because his big mouth and even bigger ego are filling a YUUUUUGE leadership void.

    Trump’s a symptom, not the cure.

    • Mark

      or the cause….

    • Eebadee-eebadee-thatsallfolks

      I agree. I was just talking with my sister the other day about how the GOP during the Bush/Cheney/Rove/Rumsfeld/Rice era just got used to saying outrageous lies over and over again and somehow repeating it enough times made it “true” and the majority of the American public just went along with it. It worked for them for a while, and now they seem baffled and disoriented because it doesn’t seem to be working.

    • teeveedub

      It’s hard to argue with your premise that the GOP is devoid of policy ideas. But I can’t buy into the “Hillary troll” line of reasoning that some are putting forward.

      I tend to think of Trump as a very fragile little boy, who lashes out at anyone who disagrees with him or challenges him in any way. He’s been surrounded for decades by toadies who suck up to him because of his wealth and power, and now, for the first time in a long time (and possibly ever) he’s getting pushback about his ideas and his behavior.

      The debate question that Megyn Kelly asked, while clearly formulated to provoke a response from Trump, was not anything out of the ordinary for a political campaign. The other candidates also had their positions challenged and statements questioned and didn’t feel the need to denigrate Kelly or the other moderators. It was only Trump, whose ego is so fragile, who had to attack the moderator. What a sad little man.

      • Scary.

      • Michael Rush

        we think Donald Trump may have hatched out of that hairdo .

      • clay

        some people find troll dolls . . . inspirational

        • Octavio

          LOL! Stop it! You’re turning me on! 🙂

    • GayOldLady

      A lot of women thought the same thing about Ted Bundy, until they didn’t.

    • Eebadee-eebadee-thatsallfolks

      Her head is the farm where they grow the stuff that they put on Donald’s head. Of course he’s nice to her.

  • Blake Jordan

    It will probably be Clinton as the democrat, Trump as the independent, and Bush as the rethuglican…
    Congratulations Pres. Clinton…

    • Blake Jordan

      I do not support Trumps attacks on women, immigrants, POWs, etcetera…
      But surprisingly, he seems to be leaving “the gays” out of his offensive attacks… I guess that has been more than covered by the rest of the rethuglican clown bus…

      • GayOldLady

        It’s still early, he’ll get to us soon.

      • Chucktech

        He’s not saying anything about gays for the same reason the Koch brothers aren’t saying anything about gays: We don’t concern them and we aren’t any threat to any financial goals they may have. Hell, we’re generally considered, rightly or wrongly, to have more disposable income than straights, so as far as they’re concerned, what’s not to love about us?

        • Rambie

          Exactly, being a homophone is “bad for business” in their eyes now. They didn’t make –inherit– all those billions without keeping a eye on the bottom line.

        • JW Swift

          We weren’t really “bad for business” for them in the first place. We were a fundraising tool and a ginned-up scapegoat for the “culture wars” back in the day. We were a tool to be used for their own gains, not that we, in and of ourselves, were an impediment to them. Now, public opinion has changed and we’re no longer useful as that tool to either drive voters to the polls or to raise money via their fear-mongering tactics, so now we’re simply not important enough to be on the radar anymore.

          • CottonBlimp

            Basically, Dubya tried to turn the GOP from the party of racism to the party of homophobia. He failed, so they’re back to racism.

      • Cuberly

        That’s what makes the Breitbart Trumpy Love scandal all the more delicious. Before they where having Breitbargasms over Cruz of all people. Cruz! The guy that wants to nuke the world and wait for Jebus. Now they’re taking a rather harsh turn from nut-ball end-times worship towards Libertarian oligarch fellating. Hell even the Jenner bashing has taken a back seat over there, and that is Youuuuge!

        To a fault there used to be at least one anti-lgbt piece posted over there on a daily basis. Usually falling under trans-bashing or imposition of PC rules of behavior, or some such garbage. But now…nuttin.

  • Skokieguy

    Is there anyone who has been critical of Trump who he has not attacked with school yard taunts?

    This man wants us to believe he can be President, yet he is incapable of intelligent debate with anyone who views him as less than awesome, amazing, brilliant, etc.

    Remember the SNL sketches of Kim Jong Il, delusional in his self aggrandizement? Seems like that’s the kind or world Trump lives in – at least in his own mind

    • clay

      and it explains their common love of monumental architecture.

      • Skokieguy

        And bad hair.

        Seriously, I can’t stop obsessing about why he is really running. I first thought the Kochs made a back room deal [backroom Koch, mmmm] to have him be the lightening rod that would make other candidates like Scott Walker seem reasonable.

        I now wonder if the Clintons have dirt on him that is serious, like life in prison serious and he’s running to split the Republican party to insure her election.

        • Judas Peckerwood

          Occam’s Razor, man — it’s just his enormous ego.

  • clay

    Developing massive headaches from listening to Bush 43 for more than ten minutes (even for straights) didn’t seem to stop him from claiming the white house, twice.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    I have to agree with the donald on that one.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Ah yes, Donald “The Rump” Trump, always finding new lows to reach for. That this man remains popular among a large segment of the right is not surprising, but it is disturbing. He’s a misogynistic megalomaniac with an arrogance that defies definition in its scope. Truly, a mad man.

  • JustSayin’

    That’s right tRump keep on antagonizing women…just keep doing for 100 more days then go independent… That’ll show em

  • AndyinChicago

    To be fair: have you tried listening to Carly Fiorina for more than 10 minutes? Counterpoint: have you tried listening to Trump for 5?

    • Bad Tom

      I try not to listen to Trump at all, but it’s getting harder.

    • clay

      Has Trump listened to anyone for more than 10 minutes straight in the last 25 years?

  • bambinoitaliano

    I am still waiting for the moment of reveal by The Onion. Can you imagine the Koch brothers trying to buy the country to be trolled and thwarted by another in the end.

      • guest

        this is viral, this is real, Trump has tapped into something and he’s making GOP his. And its spreading.

  • CanuckDon

    The mounting criticism and focus on him seems to only build and strengthen Trump’s egomania and interestingly, I think it is only going to endear a nasty, agitated public more to him. Finally their unbridled voice raging and being heard!

  • Kevin Perez

    I think this and all subsequent posts about Donald Trump should be placed under “Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy”.

    I’m loving Trump more and more. He is a thorn to those right wingnuts sides and I love it. I hope he ravages all the idiots running in the clown car. Keep it up. trump.

  • anne marie in philly

    bastard!

  • Gerry Fisher

    Seeing Trump’s ugly mug and uglier remarks plastered all over CNN as I worked out at the gym this morning, I thought, “How interesting. We’re all wrapped up in discussing “Kelly needs to apologize to me” and “Carly gives me a headache,” yet no one seems to be discussing policy or qualifications to be President.” Interesting how that works out!

  • TreGibbs

    Well, he does have a point.
