Carly Fiorina Blasts Washington Post Editorial About Her Planned Parenthood Claims

Steve Guest Media Reporter

Carly Fiorina blasted a Washington Post editorial that suggested Fiorina made untrue claims about Planned Parenthood and questioned the Post’s credibility on Sunday’s “Meet the Press.”

Fiorina said, “The Washington Post also claims that I’m lying about being a secretary, so let’s get real. I mean, I don’t even know how to deal with that. I was a secretary. Part-time to put myself through college and full-time after I graduated.”

Chuck Todd: A “Washington Post” editorial this morning is calling it a full-fledged falsehood, Miss Fiorina. They said that it doesn’t excuse your mistruths. They said that you they understand that you have a deeply held belief on abortion but that you’re exaggerating this specific claim.

Carly Fiorina: No. Well, first of all, “The Washington Post” also claims that I’m lying about being a secretary, so let’s get real. I mean, I don’t even know how to deal with that. I was a secretary. Part-time to put myself through college and full-time after I graduated. “The Washington Post” gave me three Pinocchio’s for claiming that I was a secretary. So honestly, I don’t think “The Washington Post” has a lot of credibility here. This is not about being pro-life or pro-choice. It is certainly not about birth control. it is not even about women’s health. It is about the character of our nation. No one can deny this is happening because it is happening.
