Fiorina Says Clinton Wants Beatable Trump As Republican Presidential Nominee


By Ros Krasny, Bloomberg News (TNS)

WASHINGTON –– Republican Donald Trump is “a big Christmas gift wrapped up under the tree” for Hillary Clinton because he couldn’t beat the 2016 Democratic presidential front-runner in a general election, Carly Fiorina said Sunday.

“I am the lump of coal in Mrs. Clinton’s stocking,” Fiorina said on “Fox News Sunday.” “She can beat Donald Trump. Donald Trump can’t beat Hillary Clinton.”

Clinton desperately hopes she can run against Trump, Fiorina said, because “I will reveal to the American people again and again the ‘Clinton way.'”

Fiorina, 61, the only woman among major Republican candidates, criticized Clinton’ foreign policy strategy after Saturday’s debate between the three remaining Democratic presidential candidates.

“She’s gotten every single foreign policy challenge wrong, and no, Mrs. Clinton, we are not where we need to be,” Fiorina said, adding that the policies of Clinton and President Barack Obama amount to “leading from behind” and letting others set the agenda.

Fiorina, the former chief executive of Hewlett-Packard Co., is running in seventh place in polls of likely voters in Iowa, which will hold its first-in-the-nation caucuses Feb. 1, and eighth in New Hampshire, which holds its primary Feb. 9.

    Straining to remain relevant.

    Of course Hillary wants Trump. She knows she sucks as a candidate and she might run the risk of losing to someone else in the GOP. That’s why she hired Trump in the first place to destroy the Republicans. As political moves go, it’s a damned savvy one.

      If she “hired Trump” then she is both a magician and a genius. You had better stop sniffing the pineapples in Hawaii if you really believe what you wrote.

      I don’t think there is anyone in the entire tea party infested Republican clown train she could lose to. Just how much would someone have to pay to hire a billionair to act so repulsive he would attract the Republican voters?

    Is she serious? iCarly is not the person to say who can or cannot win, considering she got her ass kicked by a very vulnerable Barbara Boxer about 5 years ago. But I do agree
    with her in that fact that HIl-Rod would love to run against that honey badger
    hat wearing mofo. Who wouldn’t? That douche, no matter what he says or how he
    says it, is an easy mark

    Mrs. Fiorina despite her bad executive record has wound up with a net worth of around $55 million dollars and this has deluded her into thinking that she is going to wind up as president of the United States. She is the only person who believes that. She is quite right about Trump vs Clinton (hooray..go Donald go you incredible jerk) but she is utterly delusional in thinking that SHE could defeat Mrs. Clinton. She is one of quite a number of Republican hopefuls who is wholly unqualified to be president on the basis not of her policies which is one issue in itself but on the grounds of political knowledge, life experience, good judgement and common sense.

      The only reason for her net worth was the size of the buyout packages Lucent and HP were forced to pay to keep her from forcing them under. Unfortunately, Lucent was too late to save itself.

    Hillary will whip you, too, Carly. She is going to landslide over every single one of the GOP candidates for the nomination. Buffoons, all. Hillary Clinton is going to be the next President of the United States.

    Fiorina needs to crawl back under her rock. She failed in marriage, as a CEO, and in her attempt to lie on Planned Parenthood. She deserves a big Trump insult; Fiorina is a loser a baby.

  7. FT66 December 21, 2015

    I blame Chris Wallace of Fox News who invited her for an interview. It seems on republican side no one is serious on this election cycle. The woman is dropping on polls every now and then like insects from the tree and these people think losing is winning? Why don’t they take the election process seriously? It is not a laughing matter.

    Fiorina really think GOP will nominate her for the WH job? She is a lost dreamer. GOP hates women.

    Lets see. I destroyed two companies as their CEO. I lost my Senate bid by about a million votes. I know, I should run for President!! That’s it. I mean really, how much worse could I do??
