Last night, Glenn Beck dedicated his entire television program to a one-on-one interview that he recently conducted with Carly Fiorina. Unsurprisingly, the interview was not particularly hard-hitting as Beck didn’t really bother to challenge the Republican presidential hopeful on anything that she said, choosing instead to focus on important issues like the “the state of her soul.”
During the discussion, Fiorina attacked Donald Trump for using eminent domain to take private property for the benefit of his businesses, laughably asserting that she has a lot of Bernie Sanders supporters attending her rallies because they know that she will fight against the “crony capitalism” which benefits only the rich and the powerful.
“Crony capitalism is alive and well,” she told Beck. “When you have big, powerful, complicated, costly government, only the wealthy, the powerful, the big and the well-connected can handle it and all the rest of us are getting crushed. And people see that, they feel it in the bones. In their bones, people know if something is so complicated I don’t understand it, I’m getting screwed.”
Fiorina, for the record, walked away with $40 million when she was fired from Hewlett-Packard back in 2005 and currently has a net worth of $59 million, so we’d love to know exactly how she qualifies as one of “the rest of us [who] are getting crushed” by a system that is rigged to benefit the wealthy.
