Carly Fiorina is a liar. She’s a really BIG liar and she has proven it time and time again over the last few months. However, during the most recent Republican debate, she outdid herself by claiming that President Obama fired a military general who retired years before he took office and she is standing by her latest pile of bullshit.
During the debate, Fiorina said:
Petraeus, McCrystal, Mattis, Keane, Flynn, every single one of these generals I know, every one was retired early because they told President Obama things that he didn’t want to hear.
General Jack Keane, former Vice Chief of Staff of the United States Army, retired in 2003. Apparently Fiorina believes that President Obama jumped into his DeLorean time machine, like Marty McFly, traveled to 2003 and forced the general into early retirement. When she had the opportunity to clarify her statement and admit that she was wrong, she continued to lie:
No, I didn’t misspeak. He has been someone of great experience who has been highly critical of the way this administration has not taken threats seriously and unfortunately he hasn’t been listened to and I would listen to him.
Since Carly is completely incapable of admitting that she is wrong, General Keane decided to help her out. On Wednesday, Keane appeared on Fox Business Network’s “Varney & Co,” where host Stuart Varney asked,“Did you in fact General give advice to President Obama which he didn’t want to hear and didn’t take?” Keane replied:
No, I’ve never spoken to the President, that’s not accurate. And I never served this administration, I served the previous administration.
