GOP presidential contender Carly Fiorina is the only female candidate in the crowded Republican field, and as such, she has drawn plenty of comments concerning her gender. While Fiorina has largely dismissed them as irrelevant, she personally responded to a series of jokes made by the female hosts of “The View” regarding Fiorina’s physical appearance.

According to the hosts of the view, Fiorina’s face appears “demented” and is difficult to look at. During an appearance on Fox News Sunday, Fiorina took issue with the “double standard” faced by conservative women, who she says face harsher treatment by the liberal media. “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,” she said.

Fiorina criticized political commentators who focus too much on gender and not enough on broader topics. “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 healthcare to education to the national debt,” she said.

“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 continued. “You see, I know that women represent half the nation so of course our views are going to be as diverse as men’s. I also know that unless and until women’s potential is fully unlocked in this country — and women have been crushed under the Obama economy — that we will not be as good a nation as we can be.”

Fiorina has slipped to the middle of the pack in the latest polls as momentum from a post-debate surge faltered. Donald Trump and Ben Carson continue to lead the race, followed by Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and Jeb Bush.
