Who won the GOP debate last night? Donald Trump vs Carly Fiorina in CNN Republican debate startled many of Trump fans

The second GOP debate didn’t see a single presidential hopeful winning the debate single handedly. If last month it was Donald Trump who hogged unprecedented limelight and saw his graph move northward, this time he was overshadowed by Carly Fiorina who left the real estate mogul speechless with her one liners.

While Donald Trump loves to brag and brag about himself and his achievements, former Hewlett Packard (HP) CEO Carly Fiorina is restrained and doesn’t like to brag about her achievement. If he loves to cut others to size by attacking them in a way that looks offensive and rude, she knows the art of making people shut up without actually uttering many words.

If people thought that only Hillary Clinton was a worthwhile female presidential hopeful, they were brought back to reality following the jaw-dropping performance of Carly Fiorina in the presence of the most influential men in the US.

Donald Trump must be wondering as to what went wrong and how a woman who he had claimed had no face to be US president, forced him eat the humble pie. Merely a few days ago Trump had said that he will apologize if he did something wrong wondering aloud if he ever did anything wrong. “I fully think apologizing is a great thing…But you have to be WRONG. … I will absolutely apologize sometime in the hopefully distant future if I’m ever wrong”. Probably he didn’t realize that he was facing far worse a prospect than simply apologizing.

While opening the second debate CNN’s Jake Tapper made the following opening remark. “In an interview last week in Rolling Stone magazine, Donald Trump said the following about you. Quote, ‘Look at that face. Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?’ Mr. Trump later said he was talking about your persona, not your appearance. Please feel free to respond what you think about his persona” Tapper said.

This gave an ideal opportunity to the ex HP boss. If she let the opportunity slip she didn’t deserve a place on the stage. Thankfully she didn’t. Fiorina was categorical in her response and while addressing larger female voters outside the studio said, “I think women all over this country heard very clearly what Mr. Trump said.”

Fiorina also completely outsmarted Trump on foreign policy issue. “What I would do, immediately, is begin rebuilding the Sixth Fleet, I would begin rebuilding the missile defense program in Poland, I would conduct regular, aggressive military exercises in the Baltic states. I’d probably send a few thousand more troops into Germany. Vladimir Putin would get the message. By the way, the reason it is so critically important that every one of us know General Suleimani’s name is because Russia is in Syria right now, because the head of the Quds force traveled to Russia and talked Vladimir Putin into aligning themselves with Iran and Syria to prop up Bashar al- Assad” said she when asked.

Trump again said something that would be ridiculed by even people with least amount of common sense. “I would talk to [Putin]. I would get along with him. I believe — and I may be wrong, in which case I’d probably have to take a different path, but I would get along with a lot of the world leaders that this country is not getting along with…We don’t get along with China. We don’t get along with the heads of Mexico. We don’t get along with anybody, and yet, at the same time, they rip us left and right. They take advantage of us economically and every other way. We get along with nobody. I will get along — I think — with Putin, and I will get along with others, and we will have a much more stable — stable world”, said Trump.
