Carly Fiorina is the former CEO of Hewlett-Packard who ran for president in 2016 and faced withering and scornful attacks by Donald Trump who even stooped as low as denigrating her looks, not that that kind of behavior should come as a surprise anymore.
In an interview, Fiorina says that she thinks Trump should be impeached and then in the very next breath says that she might vote for him in 2020.
“I think it is vital that he be impeached,” Fiorina said. But whether Trump should be removed from office, Fiorina said, “this close to an election, I don’t know.”
After dropping out of the race for the Republican nomination in 2016, Fiorina said she did vote for Trump in 2016, citing her disapproval of then-Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, but since then she has been “bitterly disappointed.” But when asked whether she would vote for Trump in next year’s presidential election, Fiorina did not rule out voting for him again.
“It depends who the Democrats put up,” she said.
In a September 2015 Rolling Stone interview, Trump mocked Fiorina’s looks and said, “Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?” Trump later said he was talking about her persona, not her appearance.
What kind of Democratic nominee would this plutocrat find so bad that she would still vote for Trump? It is not hard to guess, given that she likes Michael Bloomberg. Her big fear is probably someone who threatens to tax the plutocrats, like maybe Bernie Sanders of Elizabeth Warren.
It shows real class solidarity that she thinks that it is ‘vital’ that Trump should be impeached (something that has happened to only two presidents in the past) and is not sure if he should be removed from office (something that has never happened) and yet she might still vote for him over Sanders or Warren.
But whether Trump should be removed from office, Fiorina said, “this close to an election, I don’t know.”
She has a point. What would the media do if they had to think about and report news?
