During Outnumbered today, Meghan McCain heaped praise on Senator Ted Cruz’ choice of Carly Fiorina as a running mate. Why? Not because Fiorina would make a great president, should it come to that. No, it’s because Fiorina savages Hillary Clinton.
The totally fair and balanced crew of five conservatives spent the first three minutes of the eight-minute segment fawning over Donald Trump’s awesome candidacy and sneering at Cruz’s move as a “Hail Mary” pass. But then cohost Harris Faulkner asked McCain what she thought of Cruz’s choice “because you have been in a family with a Dad who’s actually made a vice presidential pick.”
Before McCain had a chance to explain why she approved of the move, Faulkner threw in a dig, calling the timing “weird” and agreeing with guest Arthur Aidala who had just slammed it. “But I saw your hashtags on Twitter and you were a fan of this. Why?” Faulkner asked.
MCCAIN: Well, I love Carly Fiorina. I was a huge fan of hers during the election. She’s still, to me, of any candidate running, has gone after Hillary the hardest. She rips out her jugular and serves it to me on a platter, which is what I want coming up in the election.
After everyone looked shocked and Faulkner said that was because Fiorina “didn’t get above the percentages that kept her in the race,” McCain added, “I’m just telling you why she resonated with me.”
McCain went on to say Fiorina “warms up Ted Cruz.” Which tells you just how uncharismatic Cruz really is. Because if there’s anyone unlikely to ever be described as “warm,” it’s Fiorina.
Again, everybody "forgot" about Fiorina’s troubling business record.
But let us not forget that while Faulkner held up John McCain as some kind of standard-bearer for choosing a woman as a running mate, she attacked him last summer when Trump smeared his war-hero status. Instead of holding Trump accountable for such rhetoric then, Faulkner said she thought McCain owed Trump an apology for "starting it" by insulting Trump supporters.

Love those tweets!
Of course, FOX News and their drooling fanboys see nothing wrong with what Meghan said. In fact, it’ll send a tingle up their collective legs. Because they’re all fair and balanced and such. ;^)
Well Meg, if that’s your sole criteria for what makes an effective running mate/VP, I’ll bet you just LOVE Barbara Boxer — ‘cause, she’s been savaging iCarly on twitter since Rafael selected her. Examples:
“@<a class=“tweet-url username” href=“http://twitter.com/intent/user?screen_name=tedcruz”>tedcruz talks tough on Iran, but his “running mate” was soft on Iran when she skirted the law to sell them computer parts."
“Slogan idea for the Cruz/Fiorina “ticket”: “Mean & Meaner” "
“Cruz/Fiorina= a perfect match. He wants to ship immigrants out and she’s a champion at shipping jobs out.”
“Fiorina is only person in America to think HP-Compaq was “most successful” merger ever. Just ask HP shareholders, whose stock dropped 50%."
