Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina “visited” (via a live video feed) The View one week after hosts Joy Behar and Michelle Collins commented that Fiorina looked “demented” when she smiled. The overall vibe was somewhat strained.

The hosts of The View, as they are wont to do, asked this lying, fanatical pro-lifer, failed CEO, and Very Bad Person who is running for president several probing and compelling questions, such as: “How will you get a thicker skin?” and, “You’re clearly trying to make lemonade out of lemons, aren’t you?”

Fiorina and her opponents discussed her range of facial expressions (“I love to smile and laugh,” Fiorina grimly emphasized at one point), and later traded smiling barbs about who was getting more publicity from this “feud,” which lead to Fiorina making the puzzling statement that “conservative women are held to a different standard than liberal women.”

“Carly Fiorina, you are a very wonderful woman and we’re so glad that you came back,” Whoopi finally responded, angrily.

“And so are you Whoopi, so are you,” Carly retorted, lips spread over her teeth in an iron grimace. “I am a big fan of your movies.”
