Trump-Carly

Post by lennygoran » Thu Sep 10, 2015 6:02 am

There he goes again-what a blowhard:

a person who blusters and boasts in an unpleasant way.
"a bunch of pompous blowhards trying to get on the news"

"When the anchor throws to Carly Fiorina for her reaction to Trump's momentum, Trump's expression sours in schoolboy disgust as the camera bores in on Fiorina. "Look at that face!" he cries. "Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?!" The laughter grows halting and faint behind him. "I mean, she's a woman, and I'm not s'posedta say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?"

Fox News' Megyn Kelly, who has herself been on the receiving end of some of Trump's insults, had Fiorina on her show "The Kelly File" as a guest Wednesday night. She read part of Trump's quote to Fiorina and asked for her reaction.

"I think those comments speak for themselves and all the many, many thousands for voters out there that are helping me climbing in the polls - yes, they are very furious," Fiorina responded, adding, "I won't spend a single cycle wondering what Donald Trump means - but just maybe I am getting under his skin a little bit because I am climbing in the polls."

Regards, Len :(

It's a strong face. I'll bet he's scared of her. And in the second debate, he'll have to face her in person.

And then she will have to defend her abysmal record as CEO of Hewlett-Packard. Good luck with that. :lol:

Always with the silver lining, eh? :lol:

Well, if one's record as a business CEO is an issue (and I say it's not), let's draft Ross Perot - he's only 85. :mrgreen:

As for Ms. Fiorino, the Wikipedia account isn't exactly damning:
In July 1999, HP appointed Carly Fiorina as CEO, the first female CEO of a company in the Dow Jones Industrial Average. Fiorina served as CEO during the technology industry downturn of the early 2000s. During her tenure, the market value of HP halved and the company incurred heavy job losses. The HP Board of Directors asked Fiorina to step down in 2005, and she resigned on February 9, 2005.
The major event of those 6 years was the merger of H-P with Compaq, which made H-P the world's largest maker of personal computers and, of course, increased its market share. Since then, H-P has continued to make major acquisitions, more CEOs have bitten the dust, etc. etc. Maybe H-P is unmanageable.

Fiorina is not my candidate - no Republican is - but I take her more seriously than Donald Trump does. If "serious" applies to anything Trump has been doing since he bulled his way into the Republican race.

But he didn't stick to that-he zeroed in on the face and now is saying he only meant persona-what a fraud he is. Regards, Len :evil:

Anyway, look at Trump's face: who could vote for that?

I would agree, except when a candidate's experience as CEO is being touted as a particular qualification for office, then that person's record as CEO had better withstand close inspection and in Fiorina's case I would say it doesn't:

Not exactly glowing praise either. Again, Fiorina's performance as CEO of HP is a matter of record.

Trump says by her 'face' he meant her persona -- not her looks. Now something tells me none of you are going to believe this, even though 'face' is a ubiquitously listed synonym for the word 'persona'.

Yes, I never forget a persona.
Do you shave your persona with a blade or an electric razor?

Trump doesn't shine when on the defensive. Being offensive is his thing. :mrgreen:

No, though I suppose it's possible.
