We never expected the 2016 presidential campaign to turn this ugly this quickly. This ugly, sure, but not this quickly. As the media’s anointed one, Hillary Clinton was sure to take her share of cheap shots from desperate also-rans nipping at her heels, but what the Washington Post’s Philip Rucker uncovered today … we just don’t know what to say.
That’s right. As Twitchy reported, Hillary Clinton finally launched her own Instagram account with a shot of red, white and blue pantsuits and the caption “Hard Choices.” You don’t joke about a woman’s pantsuits.
The Weekly Standard’s Mike Warren tweeted the official response of the Carly for America super PAC, and shockingly, Fiorina’s supporters didn’t find their funny bones tickled. It’s like they have a problem with Hillary being the next president or something.
“Hillary Clinton’s hard choices’ are which pant suit to wear. Carly Fiorina has laid out her positions on actual hard choices – whether on how to stop ISIS or how to re-invent government to actually make it work for the people it serves. Carly understands that our nation is at a pivotal point and we need a true leader in the Oval Office who understands the real hard choices Americans are currently facing.
“The American people want a genuine leader with real solutions to make our country better – not another member of the professional political class who thinks pantsuits are a ‘hard choice.'”
There’s that word “attack” again. This is going to be one long campaign season.
