Double standard

CNN anchor calls out “The View” for criticizing Carly Fiorina’s looks

CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin lashed out at the hosts of The View for mocking Carly Fiorina’s looks, mere weeks after they had slammed Donald Trump for doing the exact same thing. While discussing Tuesday’s GOP debate, the panel of The View started joking around about Fiorina’s appearance, with Michelle Collins saying she looked “demented” and Joy Behar piling on, saying her Fiorina’s face could be a “Halloween mask.”

The jokes did not sit well with Baldwin. “Ladies, come on! Double standard much?” she said on CNN Newsroom on Thursday. “Why do we have to talk about her looks? Because she’s a woman? All this yapping about women and their appearances! All I’m saying is we woman can be the worst to one another.”
