Pro-life republican presidential candidate has had enough of the mainstream media blaming the shooting at a Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood on pro-life groups and leaders as opposed to a deranged gunman with no ties to the pro-life movement.
Fiorina got in a heated argument Friday morning with CNN host Chris Cuomo after he claimed the alleged shooter Robert Lewis Dear was influenced by her rhetoric.
“Do you feel any sense of regret about how you characterized what was going on at Planned Parenthood after the attack in Colorado?” Cuomo asked. “Because of what the man said which seems as though he was influenced by some of the rhetoric coming out of you and others that painted a very ugly picture and unfair one about Planned Parenthood.”
“Oh, please. Really, Chris?” she responded.
“What happened in Colorado is a terrible thing, this guy is a deranged murderer, and I hope he is put away for life,” she said. “It may be that we should be classifying that as domestic terrorism as well. But that has nothing to do with the truth of what is going on in Planned Parenthood, and this is a typical left-wing tactic, to try and shut down the truth by silencing people.”
“The videos were edited, you know that,” Cuomo falsely claimed.
“Actually, I don’t know that,” Fiorina shot back. “There’s been forensic evidence of those nine videotapes over and over again, there have been reports that say they are not edited.”
“Of course they were edited! Of course they were edited!” Cuomo said.

Fiorina retorted: “It’s clear what your opinion is, Chris… I think you’ve bought the Planned Parenthood line, hook, line and sinker. Good to know that.”
“It is unconscionable to deride people who are conservative, their rhetoric, but not to acknowledge that the left uses incendiary rhetoric all the time,” she added.
“It is not ‘objective’ to say that the left-wing does not try and shut down conversation that they don’t want to have by accusing people of inciting others,” she continued. “Remember Sarah Palin? Sarah Palin was somehow responsible for the attack on Gabby Giffords. It turned out that wasn’t true, either.”
“Well, I don’t know anything about what you’re saying about Sarah Palin,” Cuomo admtited.
“Oh, of course you do! Of course you do!” Fiorina said. “Everyone knows that allusion.”
