( – Carly Fiorina’s put-down of GOP front-runner Donald Trump for criticizing her looks was the most tweeted moment of Wednesday’s three-hour Republican presidential debate, Twitter reported.

“In an interview last week in Rolling Stone magazine, Donald Trump said the following about you: Quote. ‘Look at that face. Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?’ Mr. Trump later said he was talking about your persona, not your appearance. Please feel free to respond to what you think about his persona,” debate moderator and CNN chief Washington correspondent Jake Tapper told Fiorina.

“You know, it’s interesting to me. Mr. Trump said that he heard Mr. Bush very clearly and what Mr. Bush said,” Fiorina replied. “I think women all over this country heard very clearly what Mr. Trump said.”

 Trump responded: “I think she’s got a beautiful face, and I think she’s a beautiful woman.”

Fiorina, the former CEO of Hewlett-Packard, also captured the second most tweeted moment of the debate when she commented on the recently released undercover videos of Planned Parenthood by the Center for Medical Progress and dared President Obama and Hillary Clinton to watch them.

President Obama has threatened to veto legislation that defunds Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider.

“This is about the character of our nation, and if we will not stand up and force President Obama to veto this bill, shame on us,” Fiornia said.

Fiorina also gained the most followers on Twitter during the debate, which was held at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California, according to the social media site.
