WATCH: Fiorina Spars With Cuomo!
CNN anchor Chris Cuomo got into a heated exchange with Carly Fiorina when he asked the Republican presidential hopeful whether she regretted speaking out on the Planned Parenthood videos in light of the recent shooting in a Colorado PP clinic.
“Do you feel any sense of regret about how you characterized what was going on at Planned Parenthood after the attack in Colorado?” Cuomo asked.
“Oh, please. Really, Chris?” Fiorina responded.
Fiorina said the Colorado shooting may well be domestic terrorism and called for the murderer to be sent away for life. But she shot back at Cuomo that
“That has nothing to do with the truth of what is going on in Planned Parenthood, and this is a typical left-wing tactic, to try and shut down the truth by silencing people.”
Her reference was to a recent series of undercover videos taken of Planned Parenthood employees casually discussing the organization’s horrific and unethical abortion practices. Cuomo claimed the videos were heavily edited and could not be believed, while Fiorina pointed to Planned Parenthood’s statement saying they would no longer take compensation for “fetal tissue” – what most people call baby parts – as proof that the videos were authentic.
