Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is notorious for his blatant sexism and racism and despite the backlash he has received (or the simple fact he is running for president and should present a more respectable image), nothing seems to shut up Trump’s loud mouth.
In a cover story for the Rolling Stone published on Wednesday, Trump’s latest target is Republican presidential opponent Carly Fiorina. As Trump and his staff watch news clips, the camera zooms in on Fiorina and Trump’s face immediately reacts in disgust.
"Look at that face!" he cries. "Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?!" The laughter grows halting and faint behind him. "I mean, she's a woman, and I'm not s'posedta say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?"
I am a big Trump supporter however, these petty fights he gets into are turning me off. Latest fight was a win for #Fiorina— City Girl (@ConservCityGirl) September 10, 2015
Now Trump insults Fiorina's looks! Maybe he gets campaigning and "Miss USA" mixed-up when women are in the race? ?? pic.twitter.com/nnKr62CauE— Skook (@skookerG) September 10, 2015
In what appears to be a desperate attempt to salvage any respectable ounce of human being left and deter another sexism scandal, Trump went on CNN's "New Day" to clarify his comments weren’t about Fiorina’s looks.
"I'm not talking about looks. I'm talking about persona," Trump said in a phone interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo.
He echoed a similar statement when he discussed the controversy on “Fox and Friends” on Thursday.
“Probably, I did say something like that about Carly,” Trump said. “I’m talking about persona, I’m not talking about [looks].”
"I think those comments speak for themselves," Fiorina said. "Honestly, Megyn, I'm not going to spend a single cycle wondering what Donald Trump means."
"But maybe, just maybe, I'm getting under his skin a little bit, because I am climbing in the polls."
Trump continues to make a mockery of the presidential race with his crude bashing of other candidates and his unfiltered remarks on minorities and women. Although, he is currently leading in the polls, we can only hope this latest controversy is the last straw and he is finally kicked to the curb by American voters.
