Carly Fiorina Just Lost the Cat Lady Vote

Standard

Are we the only ones who found this video kind of painful to watch? Videos featuring Carly Fiorina have been known to raise some eyebrows – and this is no different.

This viral video isn’t from her campaign or her super PAC, but rather The Independent Journal – known for such viral classics as “Making Machine-Gun Bacon With Ted Cruz,” and “How to Destroy Your Cell Phone With Sen. Lindsay Graham.”

IJ’s political ad team is back with this video-gone-Purina-commercial titled, “Why Dogs Are Better Than Cats With Carly Fiorina.” We see the former Hewlett-Packard CEO playing with squirming puppies and revealing her softer side.

And perhaps to no surprise, there are a few notably creepy moments – like when Fiorina says to one dog, “Obama ate one of your cousins,” or when she took a bite of a Milk Bone herself. Uh… yummy?

Fiorina takes it up a notch and makes her puppy video infinitely creepier thanKendall Jenner’s version when she says that a Twitter user compared her to the Disney puppy-skinner Cruella de Vil and tells the dog in her arms “your coat is exceptionally soft.” … Okay.

Carly Fiorina’s Super PAC May Have More Influence Than You Think

Standard

While many Americans are still trying to figure out the difference between a PAC and a super PAC Carly Fiorina’s team is having no trouble coordinating with her own super PAC right up to the legal limits.

CARLY for America has an unusually large amount of power for a super PAC – it manages her ground game, covers the cost of most of her events, controls her grassroots infrastructure and even oversees voter mobilization.

The PAC seems to have a heavy hand in making her political spots also. The group released this boundaries-breaking spot in New Hampshire after she officially filed in the first-in-the-nation primary.

The ad shows Fiorina surrounded by a group of supporters (all wearing shirts and hats from her super PAC) as she reassures them that her campaign is still building momentum in the Granite State. What it also shows is aborted fetuses – shocking images that provoke our graphic content warning.

In the fourth Republican debate, the national polling average shows Fiorina in sixth among her GOP rivals.

Carly Fiorina’s New Ad – Is it a New Low? [Warning: Graphic Content]

Just when you thought 2016 political ads couldn’t get any more outrageous, Carly Fiorina’s Super PAC released this ad.

At the most recent GOP debate, Fiorina was applauded when she dared “Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama to watch these tapes. 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.”

Critics were quick to point out that Fiorina was citing a charge from a former Planned Parenthood employee, Holly O’Donnell. While O’Donnell did describe the scene Fiorina was referring to, there was no video of the allegation in any of the sting videos that spurred the most recent uproar over Planned Parenthood funding.

Facing charges of being caught in a lie, Carly Fiorina doubled down on her claims, and released a political ad that actually features the horrifying scene she described in the debate, albeit from another video source.

Is this the most graphic political ad in history?

The ad opens up with the profession “Carly Fiorina won the debate. So here come the false attacks.” Then the ad taunts major news headlines, “No Video,” from the Washington Post, “Nonexistent,” from MSNBC, “Bogus,” according to Talking Points Memo.

The ad cuts to CNN’s presidential debate, where we see Fiorina’s initial charges on the aforementioned videos. But then the video takes a turn down a dark, grisly path – one certainly not for the faint of heart.

We see clips of exactly what Carly Fiorina described in the debate: “a fully formed fetus, its heart beating, its legs kicking.” The clips are attributed to the Grantham Collection & Center for Bio-Ethical Reform.

The verdict is still out on whether or not a political ad this shocking will help or hurt Carly Fiorina.
