Some people have said it already happened, frankly, but, of course, you wouldn’t agree with that. We don’t know the circumstances behind this video: “where it came from, under what conditions it was obtained, or even if this fetus was actually aborted (as opposed to a premature birth or miscarriage)”. Trump cited Sonnenfeld’s critiques of Fiorina in his debate comments and Fiorina pushed back against those arguments.
Before the latest Republican debate, there was skepticism about how much it would help any of the candidates, but it’s been huge for one: Carly Fiorina. When asked about what she would do in regards to Russian president Vladmir Putin sending troops into Syria, Carly Fiorina replied, “Having met Vladmir Putin, I wouldn’t talk to him at all“.
She described Putin as “a formidable adversary”, who was “bursting out of the buttons of his shirt”, but could be “quite amusing and charming”. That piece makes it clear that I don’t think that comparison is accurate.
If Fiorina gets the nomination, perhaps she can deliver her dare directly to Clinton on the presidential debate stage. That is the consensus of most observers and she has experienced a corresponding rise in the polls. Trump tweeted an article Monday critical of the former CEO of Hewlett-Packard’s leadership, after swatting at her on national television earlier that day. The way it looks now, it appears that Trump has left the gate safely open to run as a third party candidate, because it is doubtful that a conservative will be the Republican nominee. Marco Rubio of Florida – identified as Wednesday’s victor by 14% of Republicans, putting him second behind Fiorina – is now in fourth place with 11% support, up from 3% in a previous poll. Before August 6, the field was ranked Donald Trump, Jeb Bush, Scott Walker, 1-2-3. Now?
Trump has characterized Hewlett-Packard under Fiorina as a “disaster” in an interview with CBS’s “Face the Nation”.
The publication notes that after the CNN debate, Trump lost some support.
During the CNN debate, Fiorina clashed with Trump over his personal attacks and their business records and scored points for her condemnation of Planned Parenthood. “I think women all over this country heard very clearly what Mr. Trump said“, Fiorina said in Wednesday night’s debate. He also called Fiorina misleading and irresponsible.
The media machines on both sides of the political aisle are in a unusual position, being that they want to discredit Trump’s campaign, but can’t turn down a chance to ride the cash cow now that his poll numbers and influence are high.
