Presidential contender Carly Fiorina broke out from the pack during Wednesday night’s presidential debate with informed responses that stuck to the issues, but there was one answer that brought the house down.
During an event staged to pit Republicans against each other, Fiorina addressed a question about defunding Planned Parenthood by taking it straight to the Democrats.
Looking directly into the camera, Fiorina gave an impassioned explanation about the character of the nation that the CNN moderators probably weren’t prepared to hear.
“I dare Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, to watch these tapes,” Fiorina began.
“Watch a fully formed fetus on the table, its heart beating, its legs kicking, while someone says, ‘We have to keep it alive to harvest its brain.’ This is about the character of our nation. If we will not stand up and force President Obama to veto this bill, shame on us!”
Fiorina not only blew away the live audience, she set the social media world on fire too:
Carly Fiorina just burned down the stage guys. #GOPDebate

HOLY CRAP CARLY FIORINA. — Mollie (@MZHemingway) September 17, 2015
Jeb Bush sounding very politician-y & bloodless on Planned Parenthood. Totally lacking Fiorina’s passion…what a missed opportunity.

Carly just gave an answer about Planned Parenthood that was as good an answer as you will ever, ever, ever see. Amazing. #GOPDebate
