Carly Fiorina Just Unleashed an Unhinged Rant Against Hillary Clinton


Carly Fiorina brought down the house at tonight’s GOP undercard debate with a long, vicious rant against Hillary Clinton that included everything from a recycled El Chapo joke to a call to indict Clinton over her role in Benghazi. Or because of her emails. Or something.

Here’s a quick rundown of the things Fiorina accused Clinton of:

Being a wannabe dictator: “Hillary Clinton would do anything to gain and hold onto power, anything.” That’s why she didn’t leave Bill, apparently.

Wrongly refusing to leave her husband: “If my husband did what Bill Clinton did, I would have left him long ago.” Fiorina insisted that line “wasn’t a personal attack.”

Dodging prison: “She’s escaped prosecution more than El Chapo.”

Being a bad secretary of state: “She’s gotten every single foreign policy challenge wrong.”

Just kind of being terrible in general: “She has not accomplished much of anything in her life.”

Lying a lot: “The Clinton Way: say whatever you have to say, do whatever you have to say, lie as long as you can get away with it.”

Fiorina’s campaign then unveiled an ad during the debate titled “Qualified for the Big House, not the White House”—also a line from Fiorina’s debate rant—featuring more of her attacks on Clinton.
