Aspiring 2016 GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina went from smiling to combative in a split-second during a contentious debate with CNN host Chris Cuomo Friday morning, when he pressed her over the edited Planned Parenthood tapes.
Fiorina’s campaign has stalled out since she claimed she saw footage in the disputed videos of a surgeon “harvesting the brain” of a fully formed fetus with “it’s heart beating, its legs kicking,” and this is not the first time she has battled with a news host over her assertions.
In late October, she went toe-to-toe with CNN’s Alisyn Camerota, saying, “Wow, Alisyn, I can’t believe we’re having this conversation. Honestly, it’s clear now, it’s very clear that Planned Parenthood is harvesting body parts. So clear that they had to announce that that they no longer take compensation for it.”
On Friday’s appearance with Cuomo, things turned ugly quickly after the host pressed the former CEO on her statements, linking them to the Colorado Springs shooter who killed three during an attack on Planned Parenthood.
“Do you feel any sense of regret about how you characterized what was going on at Planned Parenthood after the attack in Colorado?” Cuomo asked. “Because of what the man said which seems as though he was influenced by some of the rhetoric coming out of you and others that painted a very ugly picture and unfair one about Planned Parenthood.”
“Oh, please. Really, Chris?” Fiorina replied, before again restating that the videos were not edited.
When Cuomo corrected her saying “Of course they were edited. Let’s be careful about what we’re saying,” Fiorina snapped.
“Oh let’s be careful about what we’re saying,” she said sarcastically as she narrowed her eyes. “Let’s be very careful about what we’re saying.”
After Cuomo pointed out that Planned Parenthood shooter Robert Lewis Dear was responding to the videos, Fiorina went off the rails, attacking the host as a journalist and saying no one in the “pro-life” movement celebrated the tragedy that claimed three lives.

Trump teases he may not have a peaceful transfer of power if he loses
President Donald Trump was aghast when he was asked in the presidential debates if he would agree to a peaceful transfer of power.
The moment in the debate came when he dodged the question for weeks, refusing to agree to the long-standing tradition of presidents handing over the reins to the next leader.
"Well, we'll have to see what happens," Trump told reporters during a White House news conference. "You know that."
After weeks of bad press about it, Trump said he would agree to it.
"They spied heavily on my campaign and they tried to take down a duly elected sitting president, and then they talk about 'will you accept a peaceful transfer?' And the answer is, yes, I will, but I want it to be an honest election and so does everybody else," Trump said, adding, "When I see thousands of ballots dumped in a garbage can and they happen to have my name on it, I'm not happy about it."
Nuns at Trump rally appear uncomfortable reading their Bible as president runs over an hour late to event
A group of three nuns appeared in the stands behind President Donald Trump's podium as they waited for him to arrive.
Trump was supposed to begin speaking at 4 p.m. in Circleville, Ohio, but as of 5 p.m. Trump hadn't yet arrived. Ohio was once considered a solidly red state when Trump won it with a margin of 8.13 percent. Trump is now only two to three points away from being beaten by Vice President Joe Biden in the state, according to polling averages.
The three sisters were seen waiting in the stands, crammed in with Trump voters in red shirts dancing and bouncing around. They looked uncomfortable and gathered instead to read their Bible together.
If Lesley Stahl and ’60 Minutes’ is too tough you can’t handle a dictator: Obama hits Trump as weak
During a Miami, Florida rally, former President Barack Obama noted that President Donald Trump isn't quite the "tough guy" he wants to pretend he is.
Trump, who recently walked out of a "60 Minutes" interview because he was told the questions would be "tough" drew Obama's ridicule saying if he can't handle Lesley Stahl, how could he handle actual confrontations with dangerous leaders.
"Joe Biden's tough," said Obama. "You know, something that you can't really say about this president, he likes to act tough and talk tough. He thinks scowling and being mean is tough and being rude is tough. but when '60 Minutes' and Lesley Stahl are too tough for you, you ain't all that tough. If you've got to walk out of a "60 minutes" interview, then you're never going to stand up to a dictator."
