Carly Fiorina Website Shows 30,000 HP Employee Layoffs She Made Happen With Sad Faces
The name Carly Fiorina is certainly a popular one on Monday, May 4. First off, Google Trends reports that more than 50,000+ searches for Carly’s name came into their search engine on Monday, no doubt because Fiorina announced her presidential bid as reported by CNN. She joins Ben Carson, who officially threw his hat into the 2016 presidential race on Monday, but news broke about Carson’s bid for president on Sunday, as reported by the Inquisitr.
Beyond Fiorina’s “Carly For America” super PAC supporters, the real website making news is the dot org version of Carly’s name, which humorously shows how important it is for presidential candidates to have digital teams who know what they are doing — along with social media managers who know their stuff. President Obama famously had a great team of IT guys who helped his grassroots campaign blossom.
“Carly Fiorina failed to register this domain. So I’m using it to tell you how many people she laid off at Hewlett-Packard. It was this many: [30,000 sad faces] That’s 30,000 people she laid off. People with families. And what does she say she would have done differently?”
According to the website’s information, the Fiorina dot org domain was registered on December 19, 2014 to a private registrant using Host Gator as their web hosting company, and Contact Privacy Inc. out of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, as their website domain registrar — at least the most recent one.
As reported by TechCrunch, Carly’s team should’ve followed the lead of Taylor Swift’s web team and purchased all the domains available with her name on them before someone could pull a stunt like this — because that’s what’s getting most of the PR today because it’s so interesting and it helps those who never knew about Fiorina’s role in the HP layoffs to learn about it today.

Fiorina became AT&T’s senior vice president of hardware and systems and eventually landed as Hewlett-Packard’s CEO — a Fortune 50 company first for any female. The HP layoffs of 30,000 people are still being remembered by whomever set up that website, however Fiorina HP debacle could be her best 2016 presidential asset, says Bloomberg.
