Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina said Tuesday that while GOP presidential front-runner Donald would be a gift-wrapped Christmas present for Hillary Clinton, Mrs. Fiorina herself would be a “lump of coal” in the stocking of Mrs. Clinton, the 2016 Democratic front-runner.

Donald Trump is Hillary Clinton’s Christmas gift wrapped up under a tree,” Mrs. Fiorina said Tuesday on Fox News. “Because if he were to be our nominee, and I do not think he will be, Hillary Clinton will wipe the floor with him and we will lose the Senate. We may well lose the House.

“I am the lump of coal in her stocking,” Mrs. Fiorina said. “I can beat Hillary Clinton, and I can turn this government into something competent that serves its people and protects this nation. And that is what is at stake right now. We have to take our country back.”

Mr. Trump on Monday called for a shutdown of Muslims coming into the U.S. in the wake of the recent terrorist attack in San Bernardino carried out by a radicalized husband and wife team.

Mrs. Fiorina said that Mr. Trump’s “overreaction … is as dangerous as Barack Obama’s underreaction.”

“Here’s what the two of the their proposals have in common,” she said. “We all get frustrated when Obama recognizes that the government is incompetent and so then he tramples on our constitutional rights by talking about taking away our Second Amendment rights.”

Donald Trump is saying the government is incompetent and, therefore, let’s trample on the Constitution by holding a religious test, which is most definitely a violation of our Constitution,” she continued.
