Carly Fiorina’s Outrageously Sexist Attack on Hillary Clinton is the Worst Yet

Ruth Marcus, The Washington Post – January 15, 2016

Carly Fiorina has dwindled to near- irrelevance in the Republican primary field, as illustrated by her demotion to the undercard debate. But Fiorina, piping up from the kiddie table Thursday, said something so calculatedly outrageous that it demands response: “Unlike another woman in this race, I actually love spending time with my husband.”

Carly Fiorina: Unlike Clinton, “I Actually Love Spending Time with My Husband”

Emily Crockett, Vox – January 14, 2016

In her opening statement at the Republican undercard debate, Carly Fiorina came out swinging against Hillary Clinton in a shocking, personal way. “Unlike another woman in this race,” Fiorina said, “I actually love spending time with my husband.” Fiorina may have been demoted from the main stage to the undercard debate in the GOP primary, but she’s still taking shots at Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton. And she’s still not shying away from gender issues.

Fiorina: Trump is the ‘Kim Kardashian of Politics’

Courtney Crowder, Des Moines Register – January 13, 2016

Carly Fiorina Stopped by Student Question

Akilah Johnson, The Boston Globe – January 8, 2016

The 17-year-old from Cape Elizabeth High School in Maine asked Carly Fiorina the last question in a 48-minute town hall meeting at the confab: “Ms. Fiorina, how do you call yourself a feminist if you are taking away my basic right as a woman to choose what to do with my body?” Pause. There were actually 16 seconds of unenthusiastic pauses while Fiorina just stood there holding the microphone during sustained applause. “So you know what,” she said interrupting the handclapping. “I’m not trying to take it away. You have that right realistically. This is political rhetoric, but let me tell you something. Let me tell you why I’m pro life.”

Carly Fiorina Struggles to Stop VP Chatter

Jeremy Pelzer, Cleveland.com – December 29, 2015

Fiorina is appealing as a VP pick because she’s the only woman in the GOP presidential race, and the Republican nominee will likely face Democrat Hillary Clinton. She’s also well-liked, a scrappy campaigner, and has no natural enemies in the primary race. Fiorina, for her part, said her campaign will “get past” the VP talk. “All these people who are caucusing for me aren’t caucusing for me because they want me to be veep,” she said. ‘They’re caucusing for me because they want me to be president.”

Mark Hensch, The Hill – December 28, 2015

Fiorina added that she is unsurprised Clinton is discussing her gender on the 2016 campaign trail. “Of course she’s going to play the woman card, that’s what she does,” she said. “There are people out there — lots of people, men and women — who think it’s time for a woman president,” Fiorina continued. “My message to them will be, ‘How about an honest woman?'”

Donald Trump and Anti-Women Bullying

Sally Kohn, CNN – December 23, 2015

Trump said something offensive. Republican policies toward women and women’s health are offensive. Accusing women who point this out of playing the victim? That’s also offensive. Women all over this country hear very clearly what Republicans are saying and don’t like it.
