Carly Fiorina proved at this week’s debate that she will say anything, no matter how purely fabricated and dishonest it may be, in order to make a point and raise her standings in the polls.
Consider Fiornia’s ridiculous claim that she had personally seen a video from Planned Parenthood showing a live fetus and a person saying it had to be kept alive in order to harvest its brain. Yet when asked to produce this video, neither Fiorina or her campaign could do so. Know why? Because it doesn’t exist. It is a flat out lie.
But on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, Fiorina was confronted with the news that no fact checkers had been able to verify her gruesome claim. Wallace asked:
“Do you acknowledge what every fact checker has found? As horrific as the scene is, it was only described on the video by someone who claimed to have seen it. There is no actual footage of the incident you just mentioned.”
Did Carly attempt to back down from her lie? No, she just decided to double down on it:
“No, I don’t accept that at all. I’ve seen the footage. And I find it amazing, actually, that all these supposed fact checkers in the mainstream media claim this doesn’t exist, they’re trying to attack the authenticity of the videotape, I haven’t found anyone in the mainstream media who has ever watched these things.”
How in the hell are we supposed to watch something that doesn’t exist, Ms. Fiorina? Your logic is fatally flawed.
And Fiorina was not finished making herself look like one of the most diabolical spinners of fiction to seek the White House since Richard Nixon:
“I mean, they will claim that somebody watched it for them. I will continue to dare anyone who wants to continue to defund Planned Parenthood, watch the videotapes. And anyone who wants to challenge me first is going to have to prove to me that they watched it.”
So we are all supposed to prove a negative? Sorry, Carly, but that tells us all we need to know about you. Namely it tells us that nothing you say from this point forward can be considered legitimate unless you prove the lie about this video or admit you made it all up.
And then we will see you for what you truly are: A lying hack who cannot be trusted with a damn thing.
