Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina ripped The View on Sunday after its hosts made disparaging comments about her appearance, saying nothing threatened them more than a conservative woman.
The View, a left-leaning daytime talk show consisting of all women, trashed Fiorina as looking "demented" during Wednesday's GOP debate, with co-host Joy Behar likening her face to a "Halloween mask." CNN host Brooke Baldwin criticized the women for their statement, noting Behar called out Donald Trump on the show for making critical remarks about Fiorina's appearance during a Rolling Stone interview.

Fox News Sunday host Trace Gallagher asked Fiorina if there was a double standard for Republican women, saying he couldn't imagine them saying such things about Hillary Clinton.
"Oh, you think?" Fiorina asked. "Yeah, I think there's a double standard. It's funny. You know, I was on The View several months ago. They said none of that to my face. 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 … It will not stop me. It will not scare me. And maybe the ladies of The View, if I come back on again, let's see if they have the guts to say that to my face."
Gallagher brought up another embarrassing moment for The View earlier this year, when they mocked a Miss America contestant for wearing a nurse's uniform, apparently not realizing she actually was a nurse.
"Are these women out of touch?" Gallagher asked.
"I think what these women represent is a set of liberal feminists who believe that if you do not agree with them on their liberal orthodoxy that you don't count, that somehow you're not a woman," Fiorina said. "You see, I know that women represent half the nation, so of course our views are going to be as diverse as men's.
"Frankly, I am tired of being insulted by liberal feminists who talk about women's issues when the reality is every issue is a woman's issue. From the economy to ISIS to Russia to health care to education to the national debt, women care about all of that. So I am really sorry that I don't agree with the women of The View. Nevertheless, I'm going to continue to stand up, stand strong, talk about what I believe in, and I am Hillary Clinton's worst nightmare as a result."
