GOP Candidate Goes Toe-toToe with Katie Couric

GOP Candidate for President Carly Fiorina went toe-to-toe with the Katie Couric on Yahoo! News on Thursday and it did not go well for Couric. The once-well regarded journalist worked hard to trap the former HP CEO with questions about some of the things she’s said about Hillary Clinton in the past… but Fiorina wasn’t having any of it.

 

Couric: Speaking of women, you’ve had some unkind words for Hillary Clinton. You said that she was not trustworthy and she hasn’t accomplished very much. I think people might think, “Well, she was the senator from New York and she was the Secretary of State.” How can you really make those claims? 

Fiorina: Well, you see, Katie, in the world I come from, a title is just a title. I mean, you went through a whole bunch of things about me as CEO. You weren’t impressed with my title. Why are we so impressed with political titles? Senator is a title. Secretary of State is a title. It’s a completely legitimate question to say, “What has anyone accomplished with their title?” And the truth is, there are many in the political class who haven’t accomplished a whole lot, despite their titles.

Couric: What about the trustworthy claim?

Fiorina: Well, you know, I think when you know that Benghazi is a purposeful terrorist attack and you peddle a fiction for four weeks after that attack, that indicates you are not trustworthy. When you talk about a private e-mail server, that’s not trustworthy. When it turns out that you were supposed to be disclosing all these foreign government donations to the Clinton Global Initiative while you were Secretary of State and you didn’t and now the Clinton Global Initiative is having to restate their 990s, that doesn’t sound very trustworthy to me.
