Boy, that Carly Fiorina boom really took off!
At the debate Tuesday night, Fiorina slammed Donald Trump for saying he had met Russian President Vladimir Putin in the “60 Minutes” greenroom, noting that she’d met Putin at “a meeting” not a “greenroom.”
The audience, which seemed a little suspicious to me from the beginning, responded with — I’m quoting the transcript — “(LAUGHTER) (APPLAUSE) (CHEERING).”
A quick Google search revealed that Fiorina had recently told Jimmy Fallon that she met Putin — IN A GREENROOM. As a big tech executive, you’d think she’d remember Google.
After boasting that American Express just boosted his credit limit, Rubio gave a series of canned speeches in response to every question, including everyone’s favorite about “the future”:
“This election is about the future, about what kind of country this nation is gonna be in the 21st century. This next election is actually a generational choice. A choice about what kind of nation we will be in the 21st century … [blah, blah, blah — seriously, he actually said the words, ‘blah, blah blah’] And so here’s the truth: This election is about the future, and the Democratic Party, and the political left has no ideas about the future.”
(Rubio proposes to be the candidate of the future with this brand-new idea: mass immigration!)
