Presidential hopeful Carly Fiorina will be sharing her views with Joy Behar, Raven Symone and the other co-hosts of ABC’s mid-morning talk show, “The View,” but the network allegedly tried to reschedule her Friday appearance just days before it is set to take place.
Despite a highly publicized back-and-forth between the ladies of “The View” and Fiorina during the past several days, according to Fiorina’s deputy campaign manager Sarah Isgur Flores, ABC wanted to push off Fiorina’s sit-down until the day after the next Republican debate.
Flores said during “The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson” on Wednesday that after some confusion, Friday’s appearance is set.
“As far as I know, we are still confirmed for Friday,” she said. “I hope that they'll continue to have us on. We are certainly looking forward to hearing what they have to say to Carly’s face, and hopefully they will want to talk about the issues instead of doubling down on these catty remarks.”
A rep for “The View” told FOX411 on Wednesday morning that Fiorina would appear on Friday as planned. A promo for the Fiorina appearance ran during Wednesday’s episode of “The View.”
During that episode, while speaking about Jeb Bush, host Whoopi Goldberg discussed why she feels politicians should come on “The View.”
“If you can’t handle us, you… can’t be president,” Goldberg said. “There’s all kind of folks, and we don’t necessarily agree with all your politics… so come on. We’re interested. We want to let our folks know what’s going on.”
On Oct. 29, Behar and Michelle Collins ridiculed Fiorina’s last debate appearance. The hosts branded her smile “demented” and suggested there should be a “smiling Fiorina” Halloween mask on shelves.
The presidential candidate responded to the comments on “Fox News Sunday.” She said she is “tired of being insulted by liberal feminists.”
“It will not stop me. It will not scare me,” Fiorina declared. “... Let’s see if they have the guts to say that to my face.”
During Monday’s episode of the show, Goldberg responded to Fiorina’s criticism of the show.
“Just so we’re all clear, you have to know the difference between when somebody’s coming for you, when somebody is paying you a compliment and when somebody is saying, ‘here’s my observation,’” she said. “If you can get that together, maybe you can be president.”
