Pre-school kids on a field trip at the Greater Des Moines botanical garden in Iowa received a whole lot more than they bargained for when GOP presidential candidate and disgraced CEO Carly Fiorina used the children as campaign props while she spoke about Planned Parenthood and abortion.
“The kids went there to see the plants,” said Chris Beck, the father of four-year-old Chatham, one of the children Fiorina appeared with. “She ambushed my son’s field trip.” [...]
“Taking them into a pro-life/abortion discussion [was] very poor taste and judgment,” Beck said. “I would not want my four-year-old going to that forum – he can’t fully comprehend that stuff. He likes dinosaurs, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Transformers.”
Fiorina apparently thanked the children for choosing to "come to Carly’s event with their adult supervisor" as if the 4-year-old children had a choice.
While the children's "adult supervisor" clearly has a lot to answer for, the Fiorina campaign should know better than to ambush a group of pre-schoolers and use them as props for her to better spread her bullshit.
Fiorina didn't stop at using the children as props while calling for a ban on abortion. According to The Guardian, Fiorina also spoke about Planned Parenthood "harvesting organs from aborted babies" in front of the kids.
May Carly Fiorina be damned.
