Carly Fiorina shared an 11-word tweet and she’s probably regretting it

Carly Fiorina

Carly Fiorina was under attack by Twitter users on Saturday when she attempted to score some extra political points with the people of Iowa.

The former Hewlett-Packard CEO tweeted that she would support the Iowa Hawkeyes in the Rose Bowl instead of her alma mater’s team, the Stanford Cardinal.

“Love my alma mater, but rooting for a Hawkeyes win today,” she tweeted.

Obviously, Iowa is a very important state to win for politicians and her attempt to score some brownie points didn’t go over well with the fine football fans of Iowa.

Here’s a sampling of the scorn Fiorina felt after making her ludicrous claim.

The Iowa Caucus will take place on February 1 and according to a recent poll, Fiorina is in ninth place in the race to win the GOP nomination.
