Few will disagree that GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina emerged the clear victor in last week’s CNN debate.
No matter which candidate you may be supporting, you must admit that Fiorina’s performance was refreshing—refreshing from the standpoint that Trump, who had insulted her looks and backtracked, insisting he was merely commenting on her “persona” was left with egg on his face. He had no comeback. A body blow was struck; a body blow which no other candidate has been able to muster this entire election cycle.
"You know, it's interesting to me. Mr. Trump said that he heard Mr. Bush very clearly and what Mr. Bush said. I think women all over this country heard very clearly what Mr. Trump said."
Wednesday night’s The Kelly File featured National Review senior editor Rich Lowry in a discussion of Fiorina’s business career and the disaster many claim it was. Kelly asked if it was sexist to make that claim. Lowry responded, “No, no one disputes that. Trump obviously attacks everyone but she’s [Fiorina] become a much bigger target, and I think part of what’s going on here is that last debate. Let’s be honest. Carly cut his balls off with the precision of a surgeon.”
He continued, “He knows he insulted and bullied his way to the top of the polls. No one was able to best him ever, except for this tough lady on that stage. And it must kill him. He must be simmering about it to this night.”
Shortly thereafter, a Twitter flamewar between Trump and Lowry turned into a comedic lampooning with The Donald demanding the government get involved.
.@realDonaldTrump a deal for you, Donald: if you apologize to Carly for your boorish insult, I might stop noting how she cut your b**** off— Rich Lowry (@RichLowry) September 24, 2015
If Trump wants the FCC to fine Lowry for offending him, would a President Trump become all stompy feet and browbeat the FCC into pulling the plug on Comedy Central for airing an episode of South Park depicting him being raped and murdered?
