Carly Fiorina sits down with left-wing Democrat journalist for a brief interview. Predictably, he pushes the left-wing question of “what about exceptions for rape and incest?!” (as if Fiorina opposes such exceptions) while ignoring the extreme positions of Obama, Clinton, Planned Parenthood, and much of the “pro-choice” crowd that openly oppose all restrictions on abortion in all dimensions.
Side note: Tapper’s wife was (or remains) a political agitator employed by Planned Parenthood.
Fiorina could’ve done better, she referred to terrorism without qualifying it as Islamic/ist, she referred to the “killing” of Katherine/Kate Steinle and not her murder, and didn’t throw the blame for the hysterical media focus on Trump’s bluster and bravado on Tapper himself and his media counterparts who all sing the same tune. She also didn’t lay blame for the deaths of victims like Steinle and the five marines in Chattanooga on Obama, Clinton, or the rest of the Democratic Party.
He said, “One of your opponents, Governor Scott Walker, signed a law in Wisconsin this week which would prohibit abortions after 20 weeks of a pregnancy. On Twitter, Hillary Clinton said Governor Walker signed dangerous abortion restrictions into law in Wisconsin without exceptions for rape or incest. Hillary called this extreme and unacceptable. Walker retweeted her and called her out of touch with most Americans. Ms. Fiorina, what is your position on this legislation, which does not allow exceptions for rape.” See how this works? So he’s asking Carly Fiorina, “What do you think about abortion law without exception rape or incest?” It’s right in the Democrat media manual, how to entrap a Republican: ask about rape or incest. So here’s what she said. This is the first of two sound bites.
FIORINA: Let’s talk about what extreme is. It’s not a life until it leaves the hospital. That’s Hillary Clinton’s position. It’s Hillary Clinton’s position that a 13-year-old girl needs her mother’s permission to go to a tanning salon or get a tattoo, but not to get an abortion. It’s Hillary Clinton’s position that women should not be permitted to look at an ultrasound before an abortion and yet people who are trying to harvest body parts can use an ultrasound to make sure that those body parts are preserved so that they can sold. That, Jake, is extreme.
RUSH: And that, folks, is nuking the premise of the question which is always the question Republicans get and answering with what you want to say, which was Hillary Clinton’s the extremist. Hillary Clinton’s the one that’s dangerous. Hillary Clinton’s the one that believes that a baby isn’t a baby ’til the mother decides to leave the hospital with it. Hillary Clinton’s the one who thinks that a mother should have the right to tell her kid she can’t get a tattoo, but not to not get an abortion. That’s extreme, Jake. Tapper said: “Just to clarify, you think there should be a provision for rape or incest?” She didn’t say a word about it. Not once. He’s not even responding to her answer. He’s just trying to pigeonhole her on this “gotcha” rape and incest, and here’s how she answered the second comeback.
FIORINA: I would really be delighted if for once the media would ask Hillary Clinton about the extremism of her position. It’s not a life until it leaves the hospital. My position is very clear. It’s been clear and consistent ever since I ran for the Senate in 2010. Yes, I support exceptions. But the majority of the American people now believe that abortion for any reason at all to be paid for by taxpayers after five months is an abomination. And this videotape, whether you’re a pro-choice woman or a pro-life woman, this videotape is depraved.
RUSH: Okay, so who ends up looking bad when this is all over? Hillary Clinton. Exactly the objective.
