Carly Fiorina blasted Hillary Clinton at the Republican Presidential Debate tonight when asked about how she’d solve women’s economic issues. Carly doesn’t believe in paid maternity leave for women or gender pay equality, yet she claimed Hill’s policies are bad for women!
Carly Fiorina, 61, wasn’t afraid to put down a fellow female presidential candidate at the Republican Presidential Debate, held on Oct. 28 at the University of Colorado. When asked about what she would do to solve the wage discrepancy between men and women, Carly instead took the opportunity to slam Hillary Clinton, 68, for her policies!
“It is the height of hypocrisy for Hillary Clinton to talk about being the first woman president,” Carly declared during the debate, “When every single policy she espouses and every single policy of President Obama has been demonstrably bad for women.” Yet Carly thinks that policies like paid leave hurt the economy — in her opinion, maternity leave isn’t “politically feasible”. It’s sort of like the pot is calling the kettle black, here, hmm?
Carly has also established that she doesn’t support programs that help women, such as Planned Parenthood. The pro-life candidate has stated that the government should cut funding to the women’s health care provider, and thinks it is a corrupt organization that is literally ruining our nation. Carly should brush up on her facts: Planned Parenthood sees 2.7 million women and men annually, who visit the health centers to receive pap tests, breast exams and treatments for sexually transmitted infections. It’s not really fair for her to claim Hillary’s policies are “bad for women” when Carly herself doesn’t support key principles!
Carly isn’t the only pro-life Republican candidate — Dr. Ben Carson compared abortion to slavery on Oct. 25 by claiming that women who terminate their pregnancies are basically akin to slaveholders: “Think about this. During slavery…a lot of the slave owners thought that they had the right to do whatever they wanted to that slave,” he said on NBC’s Meet the Press. Hillary is hardly the top culprit with policies that are “bad for women”!
HollywoodLifers, do you think it was right for Carly to call Hillary a hypocrite?
