Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina took to Twitter on Tuesday to compare GOP front-runner Donald Trump to “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star Kim Kardashian.
She called Trump the Kim Kardashian of the political world, making the claim that they’re “famous for being famous” and the media eats it up.
“Donald Trump reminds me of the Kim Kardashian of politics. They’re both famous for being famous — and the media plays along,” she wrote.
Fiorina and Trump have been tangled in an occasional back and forth since earlier in the campaign season. Most notably, Trump appeared to take a shot at Fiorina’s looks in a September interview with Rolling Stone.
“Look at that face!” Trump was quoted as saying. “Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president. I mean, she’s a woman, and I’m not supposed to say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?”
Trump later said he was referring to Fiorina’s “persona.” At the September GOP debate, Trump offered an apology of sorts.
“I think she’s got a beautiful face and I think she’s a beautiful woman,” he said.
Fiorina subsequently told People he missed the point.
“The point is, whether a man thinks you’re homely or a man thinks you’re beautiful, it’s not a topic of conversation when a woman is trying to do a job — whether it’s president of the United States or secretary or anything else,” she said.
Trump wasn’t apologetic for long, however, as he took to Twitter to rail on Fiorina after he felt the candidate interrupted him during November’s GOP debate.
The jabs continued with Fiorina also taking to social media that month. She said that Trump “would know something about pathological,” in reference to Trump’s provocative remarks about fellow GOP candidate Ben Carson.
“Anyone can turn a multi-million dollar inheritance into more money, but all the money in the world won’t make you as smart as Ben Carson,” she wrote, according to CNN.
