The former Hewlett-Packard executive, who has surged into the top tier of 2016 Republican presidential candidates, accused Democrats of protecting a political ally Sunday in an appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press”.
Dressed in pink, donning contraception costumes and waving pom-poms, Planned Parenthood protesters chanted at the presidential candidate, “Carly Fiorina offsides for telling lies” and “women are watching and we vote”.
Fiorina then continued on, wrapping her remarks and then taking questions from the women in the audience.
Fiorina’s claims have come under scrutiny since her memorable debate line, as some fact-checkers labeled them “misleading.”
And in a testy exchange with host Chuck Todd, Fiorina repeatedly insisted that the practice she described “is happening”.
Superstitious supporters of Carly Fiorina can’t see this as a good sign.
Once the women realized the curtains were coming down no matter what, they formed a protective circle around the candidate. Ted Cruz, the conservative firebrand that has routinely staged shutdown threats in efforts to win policy concessions on Capitol Hill. Cindy Shireman, 54, walked as much as Fiorina & put her hand on Fiorina’s arm before asking, “how can you as a lady not support our healthcare?” “That scene absolutely does exist”, Fiorina said.
