Fiorina Admits She ‘Misspoke’ in Debate Claim About Women Losing Jobs Under Obama

Carly Fiorina admitted today she “misspoke” an one of the claims she made during last week’s debate concerning how many women have lost jobs under President Obama.

During the debate, Fiorina claimed that 92 percent of all jobs lost during the president’s first term belonged to women. Fact-checkers concluded that this was a misleading statistic because it does not factor into the president’s entire first term.

When Martha Raddatz brought that up on ABC’s This Week this morning, FIorina admitted that “in this particular case, the fact-checkers are correct.”

She said she “misspoke on that particular fact,” but still felt her point stands that women have suffered economically under the leadership of President Obama and Hillary Clinton wouldn’t be much better.

And Fiorina also told Raddatz that the liberal media likes to cherry-pick facts too.

Watch the full interview above, via ABC News.
