Carly Fiorina Perfectly Handles Website Gaffe on Late Night With Seth Meyers

Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina jumped in to the 2016 ring on Monday, and it quickly became clear that her team neglected to buy every possible domain for the campaign--including CarlyFiorina.org, which was purchased by someone who is decidedly not a Fiorina supporter. While it's kind of head-scratching that someone with an extensive tech background would fail to register every domain name for her campaign, these things do happen.

Anyhow, addressing this gaffe on Late Night with Seth Meyers last night, Fiorina revealed that until earlier that evening, SethMeyers.org was up for grabs, and she had purchased the domain in the green room ("It was really cheap, Seth") prior to her appearance on the show. SethMeyers.org now redirects to Carly Fiorina's official campaign site.

Other candidates, take note. That is how you handle an awkward situation.
