(politico) Trump on Fiorina’s face: I made those comments as an entertainer – POLITICO



Donald Trump didn’t mean any harm when he criticized fellow GOP 2016 presidential candidate Carly Fiorina’s face. He says he was just being the showman he is.
“Many of those comments are made as an entertainer because I did The Apprentice and it was one of the top shows on television,” he told Greta Van Susteren on Thursday night. “Some comments are made as an entertainer and as everybody said, as an entertainer is a much different ball game.”

Trump who is leading in Republican polls has said comments that would have buried many other candidates.
A Rolling Stone story Wednesday illustrates a scene where Trump watches Fiorina come onto the TV screen.
“’Look at that face!’ he cries. ‘Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?!’ The laughter grows halting and faint behind him. ‘I mean, she’s a woman, and I’m not s’posed ta say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?’”
On Thursday night, he reiterated what he told CNN earlier — that the face comments were actually about her persona.
“We’re really talking about not a physical thing, we’re talking about the persona. This is a women that gets tremendous publicity,” he said. “I don’t know why…her past doesn’t go along with the publicity she’s getting.”
But it didn’t take long before he was back on his favorite punching bag: Jeb Bush. “When somebody knocks me like Jeb Bush or anybody else, I at least decide that I think it’s appropriate to fight back.”
Van Susteren pointed out this wasn’t his first time saying controversial comments about women.
Trump responded that he was leading with women, and many other groups.
“I’d like to say that nobody understands and nobody wants to do more for women,” Trump said, a favorite line of his. “My wife was talking to me and she said you cherish women you really have to talk about it a little bit more.”
Trump also addressed his spat with Dr. Ben Carson. Earlier Thursday he said Carson, who is the first person to successfully separate conjoined twins, was an “OK doctor.”
Trump backtracked a bit, saying he’s sure some people will disagree with his views.
“I’m sure he’s a good doctor, I think that he’s overrated as a doctor,” Trump said.
