As a Carly Fiorina supporter, I am supposed to attack Donald Trump for his attack on her looks



As a Carly Fiorina supporter, I am supposed to attack Donald Trump for his attack on her looks. Trump said, "Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president."

His statement is rude and crude. I think Carly should ignore it and let him stew in his own juices. Certainly this flare-up will dominate the political news cycle for a few minutes, hours, maybe even days. That should help raise her profile. We shall see.

Carly needs to ignore it. She should respond to questions by looking as though she wants to disarm the issue. She can do so in three words: "I've heard worse."

That would send several signals. 1. Maturity. 2. Thick skin. 3. Trump is incompetent at insults.

This could be her moment. Thatcher wasn't a looker. And Golda Meir, oy veh. But my gosh, we certainly would have a crueler, meaner and less safe world without them.

\I am sure the remark hurt. She must buck up. Trump just gave Carly's campaign a boost. She must own it. If not, why run for president?

  1. I couldn't agree more. She responded well to Megyn Kelly's question about it last night. Something like, 'It must be getting under his skin that I'm rising in the polls'.

  2. Surber - Fiorina is ignoring it just like Hillary Clinton is ignoring your one-time constant use of a very unflattering profile picture of her along with your past posts about how her age and looks seemingly make her unfit for the oval office. Let's see, you have championed Rubio, the Wisconsin Gov, boosted up Trump for bucking the DC elite and now you like Fiorina (I like her too btw). Who you supporting next week?

    1. Your mom.

      Did Surber say she was unfit because of her looks, or is someone projecting? Hillary is unfit because she's a corrupt piece of sh*t.

    2. Hoss, Anonymous needs to do his/her homework on my endorsements. http://donsurber.blogspot.com/2015/08/carly-for-president.html

      I support Trump's supporters, not him. Hillary is ugly inside and out

    3. Hoss - Can't prove Surber said Hillary is unfit because of age and looks because Surber removed post from his blog that said just that. Pretty disingenuous Don. Like you Hoss, I think Hillary is unfit because she is corrupt. But of course, his "Hillary is ugly ...." quote is okay because, well Hillary is Hillary. But it is not okay for Trump to call Fiorina ugly because, well, Surber likes Fiorina.

    4. Maybe it's because Hillary's ugliness radiates from the inside out.

  3. The real tragedy of his boorish behavior is that the two of them might have been parts of a team (not clear yet who is in what role) the includes several other people.

    I don't understand why he did that.

  4. If the choice were Trump or Fiorina, well, I wonder if Trump would take a consolation prize and an ambassadorship to China

  5. I think Donald is an ok businessman. Goes bankrupt sometimes. TV show is off the air.
    So, meh.
    Grating voice, bad hair, not very classy.
    Understandable that he thinks he can surpass Obama. Not that difficult.

  7. Because you didn't have comments for DOJ & bankers, I add: Bama don't need no bankers' big-bucks contributions.
