I know that too often today, you read headlines with the words “DESTROYS” or “ANNIHILATES” or “GOES NUCLEAR” simply designed to generate your click, often leaving you empty and unfulfilled inside. All caps.
This is not that time. Allow me to set the premise; “Chris Cuomo was dead to begin with…”
CHRIS CUOMO: “Do you feel any sense of regret about how you characterized what was going on at Planned Parenthood after the attack in Colorado? Because of what the man said, which seems as though he was influenced by some of the rhetoric that was coming out of you and others that painted a very ugly picture and an unfair one, about Planned Parenthood?”
CARLY FIORINA: Oh, please, really, Chris?Nine videotapes have come out about Planned Parenthood. It is very clear what they have been doing. And in fact, Planned Parenthood several weeks ago made a quiet little announcement that they would no longer accept compensation for the sale of what they call fetal tissue. That’s about as close to an admission as you can get.
CHRIS CUOMO: The tapes were edited. You know that.
CARLY FIORINA: Actually I don’t know that, there have been forensic reports over and over… that say they are not edited.
CHRIS CUOMO: Let’s be careful about what we’re saying.
CARLY FIORINA: Oh yes, lets be VERY careful about what we’re saying.
But her real KO comes a little later on. After directly calling Chris out as being a so-called “journalist,” she slides in this little zinger.
CARLY FIORINA: It’s clear what your opinion is Chris. It’s clear.
CHRIS CUOMO: What’s clear, what do you think my opinion is?
CARLY FIORINA: I think that you’ve bought Planned Parenthood’s line, hook line and sinker. So, good to know that.
Oh. My. God.
She then proceeds to cite specific examples of Obama literally using incendiary language designed to incite hatred toward political opposition, dresses down Cuomo as the partisan hack that he is and question the media’s general journalistic integrity (as they’ve openly lied about the Planned Parenthood videos).
You know, an all around, lubrication-less sexual accosting that would, in any other circumstance, result in a twenty year minimum sentence.
She may not be perfect, but when Fiorina is in her wheelhouse, my word she’s a sight to behold. Which doesn’t surprise me, considering that before her surge in national popularity, she guested on the program, and was phenomenal.
