Fiorina on Trump: 'Women understood that comment'

Carly Fiorina said Donald Trump's comments about Megyn Kelly "were completely inappropriate and offensive" and were clearly meant to imply the Fox News host's tough questions were a result of menstruation. "Women understood that comment. And yes, it is offensive," Fiorina, the former Hewlett-Packard executive, said in an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper aired Sunday on "State of the Union." Trump is under fire for saying Friday night that Kelly, who pressed him on his previous attacks on women during Thursday night's GOP presidential debate, had "blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her -- wherever." "I started out as a secretary. And as I made my way up in the business world, a male-dominated business world, I've had lots of men imply that, um -- I was unfit for decision-making because maybe I was having my period. So I'll say it, OK?" Fiorina said. "When I started this campaign, I was asked on a national television show whether a woman's hormones prevented her from serving in the Oval Office," she said. "My response was, can we think of a single instance in which a man's hormones might have clouded his judgment?"
