I've read the transcript and heard the audio of Trump's bleeding remarks and I'm not sure if he was or wasn't suggesting that Kelly asked him unfair questions because she was having a menstrual period so I'm personally inclined to just move on. 

That uncertainty didn't stop others from adopting clear positions, according to Mediaite:
One of subplots to come out of Thursday night (of many) is the new war between Trump and Fox News: Trump supporters and AM radio from Limbaugh to Levin think Kelly was out of line. Fox (outside of Todd Starnes, at least publicly) and some GOP candidates (such as Thursday winner Carly Fiorina) are in Kelly’s corner. Get more popcorn ready…

Carly Fiorina is certainly not in these folks corner.

"Fiorina presented herself as a realist regarding the effects of globalization. She was a strong proponent, along with other technology executives, of the expansion of the H-1B visa program.[47][48][49][50] Fiorina responded against protectionism in an editorial in the Wall Street Journal, writing that while "America is the most innovative country," it would not remain so if the country were to "run away from the reality of the global economy."[51] Fiorina said to Congress in 2004: "There is no job that is America's God-given right anymore. We have to compete for jobs as a nation."[48] While Fiorina argued that the only way to "protect U.S. high-tech jobs over the long haul was to become more competitive [in the United States]," her comments prompted "strong reactions" from some technology workers who argued that lower wages outside the United States encouraged the offshoring of American jobs.[52]
