GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump, under fire for comments about rival Carly Fiorina's appearance, said there is a double standard when it comes to people criticizing others.

Trump has long noted he has been made fun of because his hair, but during an appearance Thursday on Fox News Channel's "Hannity"  he pointed to a story from 2010 when Fiorina made fun of the hairdo of California Sen. Barbara Boxer when she ran unsuccessfully to unseat her.

Fiorina can be seen in a video feed while preparing for an interview with CNN in which she said someone "saw Barbara Boxer briefly on television this morning and said what everyone says, 'God, what is that hair? So yesterday.'"

Story continues below video.


Fiorina laughs, then suddenly realizes she is on camera and wearing a microphone, and she stops.

Trump told Hannity not only is there a double standard between men and women, but said it also is "being politically correct."

"Last night I was very nice to her and some people thought I was being sarcastic," Trump said. "But actually if you look back at the records on Carly, she was brutal on Barbara Boxer. She was very nasty."

Cal State LA political science professor Dr. Raphael Sonenshein told CBSLA.com there is a difference between a man criticizing a woman's looks and one woman criticizing another woman.

"In a slight way, in a weird way of gender dynamics, her making fun of her female opponent was not good," Soneshein said. "But it’s a little bit different, when a bombastic guy like Donald Trump does it. It really had a whole extra dimension."
