Trump’s war on, well, everyone rages on. Presidential hopeful Donald Trump called into ‘The Today Show’ to chat about his presidential campaign, once again finding the time to slam his opponent, Carly Fiorina. Watch his egregious remarks– if you think you can stomach it.
Chatting with Today Show host Savannah Guthrie on Sept. 21, Donald Trump, 69, wasted no time insulting Carly Fiorina, 61. Following the second republican debate on Sept. 16, Trump’s numbers are down and Carly’s are up, which means Trump is feeling vulnerable, obviously, and using his meany-pants-meanness to try and take her down. This time around, he’s calling her “robotic,” slamming the way she speaks. To hear more about Donald Trump, head over to iTunes and download the latest HollywoodLife podcast for free!
“She says the same thing over and over and over, but a lot of the people didn’t hear it in the debate, so they heard it for the first time,” Trump responded when Savannah asked him why he thought Carly was surging now. “It’s almost like robotic.” You can watch the entire thing below.
Cringing. Can’t stop cringing. Believe it or not, Trump did veer from the personal for a moment to discuss why he believes Carly is unqualified to be president from a logistical standpoint. “I think people will understand her soon,” he said. “When they look at her record of tremendous failure. Look, she took Lucent into the ground, she took HP into the ground.”
Amidst all the Carly slamming, though, Savannah was able to turn the tables onto Trump himself, asking him about the much-talked about moment during the recent debate in which Trump nodded along as an audience member said, “the problem in this country is Muslims.”
“I’ve never had a problem with Muslims,” Trump told Savannah before explaining that the problem was with individual extremists. Savannah, being the badass journalist that she is, prods him further. “Would you have corrected him if he had said something like, ‘the problem in this country is Christians’?” Trump, of course, continued to skirt the issue, saying that he “assumed” the audience member had been talking explicitly about radical Islam. Okay then.
What do you think of Trump’s comments about Carly? Rude or totally fair game?
