Insulting people is Donald Trump’s signature move. But sometimes it doesn’t go over so well. Like when he remarked to Rolling Stone magazine this summer about Carly Fiorina’s face. "Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?!" he said. The comments were perceived by many as far beyond insulting, and outright sexist.

Trump was somewhat chastened by the episode, which Fiorina deftly used in an earlier debate to score points with sympathetic women. So it was surprising Tuesday night that he decided to attack another personality trait of Fiorina, the only woman on the stage at the GOP debate. “Why does she keep interrupting everybody?” he said.

The line was met with boos.

Though not everyone was troubled by Trump’s comment. This Fox News personality seemed fine with it.

Fiorina wasn’t the only one who would be condescended to by Trump, the real estage magnate. Trump also declared during an exchange with Ohio Gov. John Kasich that he was a billionaire businessman and didn’t need to “listen to this man.”

Some saw irony.
