While Carly Fiorina campaigned at a tailgate party in Iowa yesterday, she found herself being pelted with condoms by protesters. Note that the condoms thrown were no ordinary over-the-counter prophylactics, but were Planned Parenthood’s own special brand:
PROPER ATTIRE® condoms, available in Planned Parenthood health centers, are just one example of new condoms available to consumers. With fifteen glamorous styles, PROPER ATTIRE condoms are a safe, fun and stylish way to protect against pregnancy and STDs.
Protesters, still studiously ignoring the abject depravity of the CMP videos, chose to focus on what they believe to be Fiorina’s debate video misrepresentation as they sought to put her in her place:
The protesters, some of whom were affiliated with the women’s health group and others who were supporters, were dressed in pink and waved pink pom-poms as they followed the Republican presidential candidate around the tailgate, chanting “Carly Fiorina offsides for telling lies” and “women are watching and we vote.”
Because nothing says Take me seriously! like a pom-pom waving woman dressed up as birth control:
Nonetheless, Fiorina remained calm and poised in the face of such classless buffoonery, and in classic Fiorina-style, took advantage of the opportunity presented to her:
Joining the protesters was a patient of Planned Parenthood, Cindy Shireman, who pushed through the crowd to confront Fiorina directly and told her she doesn’t support women’s health.
“Oh I support women’s health,” Fiorina quipped back, while grasping Shireman’s hand.
“You need to ask yourself some questions [like] why is it that fetuses are butchered alive to harvest their brains. Why?”
The questions, of course, present themselves: If birth control is a throw-away item (just like a baby!) as demonstrated, then why on earth are taxpayers forced to subsidize Planned Parenthood?? Further, can you imagine the howls of outrage if Hillary Clinton was pelted with condoms??
