Watch Carly Fiorina Do a Face-Plant Off a Stage While Ted Cruz Ignores Her

Nothing could more perfectly capture Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) campaign than Carly Fiorina falling face-first off the stage in Indiana.


After a short speech talking about why she’s so in love Ted Cruz and a fair amount of pandering to Indiana voters, she announced the family and the candidate. Everything at this point was normal, but as you can see from the video it looks like tight quarters with people all over the stage.

The political family came out, kids first and senator last and there went Carly off of the stage. Heidi notices and you can see the “OH!” expression on her face as she reaches down. An unidentified tall, white man with a military haircut comes from the left and helps the veep wannabe back up onto the stage.

Ted Cruz continues to wave to the crowd as if nothing has happened.
