Planned Parenthood protesters threw condoms at Carly Fiorina today while she campaigned at a tailgate party for the Iowa Hawkeyes.
The protesters, some of whom were affiliated with the women's health group and others who were supporters, were dressed in pink and waved pink pom-poms as they followed the Republican presidential candidate around the tailgate, chanting "Carly Fiorina offsides for telling lies" and "women are watching and we vote."
Some people in the crowd supporting Fiorina shouted back at the pink-clad protesters, "So do we!"
Fiorina has been having a war-of-words with Planned Parenthood ever since last week's debate when she made the claim that an undercover video from the conservative Center for Medical Progress showed a fully-formed fetus being kept alive to harvest its brain.
You know I don't necessarily think this is helping, but I have to admit, it's kind of funny.
And it's not like Firona doesn't deserve it, after making that garbage up about those Planned Parenthood videos and refusing to correct herself after so many journalists called her out on her misinformation.
And apparently she STILL has no intention of admitting her mistake:
"Oh I support women's health".
"You need to ask yourself some questions [like] why is it that fetuses are butchered alive to harvest their brains. Why?"
Yeah that's what we need in the White House, yet another idiot whose opinion cannot be changed by new information, or the debunking of their old information.
Update: Fiorina was again given the opportunity to correct this today on Meet the Press:
“There is no evidence that the scene you described exists,” Todd said. “Are you willing now to concede that you exaggerated that scene?”
“No, not at all,” Fiorina responded. “That scene absolutely does exist. And that voice saying what I said they were saying, ‘We're going to keep it alive to harvest its brain,’ exists as well’.”
“Planned Parenthood will not and cannot deny this because it is happening,” Fiorina continued. “It is happening in this nation. And taxpayers are paying for it. Planned Parenthood desperately wants everyone to think this isn't going on. Because when Americans realize it is going on, whether they are pro-life or pro-choice, they are horrified. This goes to the character of our nation and it must be stopped.”
Todd accused Fiorina of ducking the issue, saying “the footage you describe at best is a reenactment.” Fiorina hit back, and criticized Todd for not asking Hillary Clinton about the issue when she sat for an interview earlier in the day.
“Chuck, Chuck, Chuck, Chuck, Chuck,” Fiorina said, talking over the anchor. “Do you think this is not happening? Does Hillary Clinton think this is not happening? So sad that you missed the opportunity to ask Mrs. Clinton why she said, ‘Late-term abortions were only performed for medical purposes.’ That is patently false. This is happening in America today. And taxpayers are paying for it. That is a fact. It is a reality. And no one can run away from it.”
And there you go. THAT is what it takes to be third in the polls right now.
