What do you think?: Trump under fire again for comments about women


"Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?"

That quote from Donald Trump about fellow Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina has set off a firestorm of debate about the way Trump talks about women.

Fiorina said Trump is turning on her because she's rising in the polls and "getting under his skin."

Other candidates have jumped on Trump's comments.

Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton in Columbus Thursday said Trump "seems to delight in insulting women every chance he gets." She also said she'd love to debate him.

Republican Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal called Trump "a madman," while Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton said the billionaire real-estate mogul "seems to delight in insulting women every chance he gets."

Despite the controversy, a new poll shows that Trump is polling well with women. A new CNN/ORC poll shows that Trump has increased his lead among Republican women, boosting his share to 33% of women voters, up from 20% a month ago.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who at one time was the GOP front-runner, said Trump's latest comments were "inappropriate."

Trump will be on stage with Fiorina and nine other GOP candidates Wednesday night for the second GOP presidential debate in California.The debate will air on AM 1290 and News 95.7 WHIO from 8-10 p.m. on Sept. 16. It will stream live on whio.com

Trump's comments about Fiorina came from a new Rolling Stone article.

Just last month, Trump also took heat for comments he made about Megyn Kelly who was one of the moderators of the first debate on Fox News. Trump didn't like the way he was treated at the debate and made some strong comments about Kelly.

During a CNN interview about the debate, Trump said Kelly had "blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever" when she was questioning him about his past comments about other women such as Rosie O'Donnell.

The Associated Press reported Thursday that during an interview with ABC's The View, Trump said "I want to say that I cherish women, and I will protect women, and I will take care of women, and I have great respect for women."
