However, the media, and eventually Twitter, appeared to be more captivated with a photo of a brunette woman eating alone at the diner counter, seemingly unaffected by the media circus surrounding Fiorina’s appearance behind her.
New Hampshire Union Leader first shared the comedic photo, which caused others to note the striking similarities between the unidentified woman and the animated characters Linda Belcher from Bob’s Burgers and Edna Mode from The Incredibles.
Carly Fiorina, the former Hewlett Packard CEO, who was denied a place on the ABC news debate stage Saturday, says voters know the 'system' is rigged, and she won't settle for staying quiet about it; or about America’s decline in values.
Fiorina says media doesn’t choose presidents and she's prepared to go all the way in her candidacy.
She added that Americans are told to 'sit down' and accept a decline in conservative beliefs on values like god, guns, abortion, national security, employment and the American dream and she wants a return to citizen-government.
More statements from Fiorina this morning:
"Here we are...eight have gone...we're left with 8 candidates, and despite the fact that the 'Anybody But Carly network (ABC) didn't want me on that debate stage Saturday night, despite the fact that I've beaten a couple of governors on that stage, and I'm tied with Jeb Bush in delegates..."
"We are prepared to go all the way, we have the organization to go all the way, we have the funding to go all the way, the ground game in states across the nation to go all the way."
"ABC doesn't pick presidents, although George Stephanopolous' network would very much like to pick a president, we know who he wants. So send me out of here with the wind at my back, and pick a president."
"We're being asked to accept a system of government and politics that doesn't work for us anymore. The government has grown so huge, so bloated, think about it. It's gotten bigger for 50 years. And yet it is more inept, more corrupt, than ever before...it's completely incompetent, at everything, pick your example."
"Ours was intended to be a citizen government. As citizens, we were intended to have the power. But we don't have that power anymore. And we don't have control over the money anymore. So I'm going to ask you, do not sit down and be quiet. I never will. Do not settle for a system that doesn't work for you anymore. Don't accept this system that is operating against the people of New Hampshire, and against the interests of the citizens of this nation."
The latest U-Mass 7 news tracking poll in New Hampshire has Fiornia currently in seventh place, with four percent support, well behind frontrunners Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio.
