Rule #1 in politics: turn every negative into a positive.
“Look at that face!,” the magazine quoted Trump as saying. “Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president. I mean, she’s a woman, and I’m not s’posedta say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?”
Fiorina is clearly very serious. The Carly for America Committee has released a web ad responding to Trump – although they don’t mention him by name.
The ad, called “Look at this Face,” shows Fiorina speaking at a Republican women’s event.
“Ladies, look at this face,” Fiorina says in the ad. “And look at all your faces. The face of leadership.”
“This is the face of a 61-year-old woman,” says Fiorina, a former Hewlett-Packard chief executive. “I am proud of every year and every wrinkle.”
