Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

Carly Fiorina may have gotten demoted to the undercard debate last night — but she came in first place for cringe-inducing smarminess, especially with this lowdown attack on Hillary Clinton: “Unlike another woman in this race, I actually love spending time with my husband.”

During the post-debate media rounds, Chris Matthews felt obligated to get to the bottom of what Carly was saying. “I’m gonna ask you this: Do you believe the Clintons have a real marriage?”

Fiorina grinned as she delivered her slimy response — and then things only got worse from there.

“They’ve been married for a very long time!” she said.

Matthews asked again: “So it’s a real marriage?”

And again, Carly said with a grin: “They’ve been married for a very long time!”

“It’s a real marriage, then — you’ll say that?”

“They’ve been married for a very long time!”

“Why are you hiding from an answer?”

“I’m not — I’m answering your question,” Carly said, seeming to hold back laughter. “They’ve been married for a long time!”

“Because you brought up this very unpleasant subject—”

“Wow, Chris,” Fiorina declared, as she shook her head back and forth melodramatically, like some schoolyard taunt, “there are so many other things we could talk about!”

“Well, I’m quoting back to you what you brought up in the debate.”

Democrats had been expecting defeat but were seeking to use the procedural vote to highlight Republican opposition to tougher gun control measures following a second massacre at a Texas elementary school on Tuesday.

The totally needless killing of 19 school children and two teachers in the latest school shooting shows once again that we're a nation on the verge of total disaster.

Never hesitant to nail hypocritical Republicans, Jimmy Kimmel began his show without an audience on Wednesday and delivered a poignant monologue about the massacre at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas that left 19 children and two teachers dead. Kimmel blasted feckless Republicans by noting most Americans support common-sense gun laws, but the legislation stalls “because our cowardly leaders just aren’t listening to us ― they’re listening to the NRA.”
