Republican presidential hopeful Carly Fiorina does not think going after former president Bill Clinton is the right way to beat Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton. Instead, she is devising another strategy to defeat her democratic rival.
Fiorina recently made an appearance on Fox News' Fox and Friends and accused Clinton of playing the “woman card” every chance she gets. Echoing GOP frontrunner Donald Trump’s assertions, the presidential hopeful claimed that Clinton is using sexism to galvanize her female supporters.
“Hillary Clinton, first of all, calls everybody a sexist and that's not fair game,” Fiorina exclaimed Monday. “She called Bernie Sanders a sexist because he criticized her. She's going to play that card, we need to be realistic, and of course she's going to talk about the Republican war on women, which doesn't exist.”
Referencing to the ongoing battle between real-estate mogul and the former secretary of the state, Fiorina said that the way to beat Clinton is to attack her track record and lack of trustworthiness.
“Of course she’s going to play the woman card. That’s what she does,” Fiorina added. “The way to deal with the woman card is to attack her track record.”
It’s pretty evident that Fiorina has fallen to the back of the Republican pack. However, she made the case as to why she should be the first female president of the United States during the interview.
“Hillary Clinton wants to talk about the historic nature of her candidacy, she wants to talk about being first woman president and there are people out there — lots of people, men and women — who think it's time for a woman president,” the candidate explained. “My message to them will be, ‘Look, how about an honest woman, a competent woman? How about a qualified woman?’ But I'm never going to ask for people's support because I'm a woman. I'm going to ask for their support because I'm the most qualified candidate to beat Hillary Clinton and to do the job.”
Clinton and Trump hurled quite a lot of insults at each other in the recent days. The scuffle began when Trump said Clinton got “schlonged” by President Obama during the in the 2008 primary fight and Clinton shot back by calling him out for his “penchant for sexism.”
Although Trump is still soaring in the polls, if there’s anyone who has benefited from this to-and-fro of insults, it is Clinton – because every time the billionaire says something sexist or derogatory, he is basically providing fodder to his rival’s campaign.
