Fox host makes sexist ‘Barbie dolls’ joke to defend Carly Fiorina from sexist Trump remark
Fox News contributor Juan Williams was quickly called out on Thursday for insulting Donald Trump’s wives while attempting to chastise Trump for insulting fellow Republican presidential hopeful Carly Fiorina.
“First of all, Carly Fiorina should not be worried,” Williams told his co-hosts on The Five. “I mean gosh, how many people would tell Carly Fiorina but I would tell her, ‘I would prefer hanging around with you than the Barbie dolls I see around Donald Trump.”
Wiliams was referring to Trump mocking Fiorina’s appearance while being interviewed by Rolling Stone magazine, saying, “Look at that face. Would anyone vote for that?”
“Who are you referring to?” Kimberly Guilfoyle asked.
“I guess some of the women that he’s been married to,” Williams said.
“I don’t think that’s a very nice thing to say at all,” Guilfoyle shot back. “I actually know them personally, do you?”
“Wait, you’re getting madder at him than you are at Trump,” co-host Greg Gutfeld chimed in.
