Ladies and gentlemen, this is how a Republican presidential contender answers a gotcha question about abortion.
Carly Fiorina turned the tables on CNN’s Jake Tapper and slammed Hillary Clinton in one fell swoop after Tapper asked her a loaded question on abortion.
Tapper cited Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s recent signing of a law to ban abortions after 20 weeks. The legislation would not allow for exceptions to rape or incest.
Noting that Hillary Clinton called Walker’s law “extreme,” the CNN host asked Fiorina to expand on the subject.
So she did.
“Let’s talk about the legislation sitting on the Senate floor right now,” Fiorina began. “Let’s talk about Hillary Clinton’s position. Let’s talk about what extreme is.”
Fiorina continued to expand on Clinton’s radical stance on abortion.
“’It’s not a life until it leaves the hospital.’ That’s Hillary Clinton’s position,” Fiorina said.
But Fiorina was just getting started.
“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 would not be permitted to look at an ultrasound before an abortion, and yet people are trying to harvest body parts and can use an ultrasound to make sure those body parts are preserved so they can be sold.
“That, Jake, is extreme.”
