Fiorina Hospitalized… Campaign Still Tweeting Jabs at Boxer

Look, the only genuine thing about former HP CEO Carly Fiorina is she’s a cancer survivor. It’s relatable. It’s admirable. When she talks about her illness she becomes a real person. Then she just keeps on talking and ruins the whole thing. Anyway, Ms. Fiorina was admitted to the hospital today due to an infection related to her double mastectomy. But instead of tweeting about it or NOT tweeting – her campaign is playing it “business as usual.” Which means tweeting that her opponent, Barbara Boxer is a failure every couple of hours and not mentioning the infection today at all.

Seems…well fake. Fake and insincere. Just like her phony Boxer protests and imaginary demon sheep. Way to go. Way to suck all the sympathy out of going to the hospital.
