In a predebate Speakeasy interview, Fiorina warned with a chuckle: "Mr. Trump's going to be hearing quite a lot from me."Okay, so what is Fiorina leading with?
Over chicken tenders and french fries in a Concord diner, Fiorina starts by going after Trump's business record -- including his acknowledgment in a court case that he sometimes exaggerated the value of his real estate assets because "Who wouldn't?"That's her plan? She's going to go after Trump because he takes advantage of the fact that his businesses are subject to laxer reporting requirements than those Fiorina dealt with at Hewlett-Packard?
"Donald Trump and I are in totally different businesses," she said. "He's in the entertainment business. And he's also in a privately held business.
"In the business I was in, we had to report our results publicly, as you well know, in excruciating detail, quarter after quarter after quarter," she added. "And if I misrepresented those results or those projections I could be held criminally liable. If I had done it, I could have gone to jail. Those are his standards. I think my standards are what the American people would appreciate politicians or people running for office being held to."
In other words, she's going to go after Trump because she thinks he's held to insufficiently strict government regulations?
Oh yeah, that'll really get right-wingers to abandon Trump for Fiorina. Great plan, Carly.
