So the Donald is sitting out the next debate?

It will probably end up boosting his ratings. Whatever. This guy is a petulant cry-****.

    But he is getting a lot of press. And he got you to forward even more information about him, good, bad, or indifferent, so who's winning?

    I read it was because they wouldn't have the debate at the Moscow Trump Tower. True story.
  • He has a knack for dominating the news cycle, that's for sure. If Trump drops out, CNN will have to go back to looking for that plane.

    Ha.

    I have no idea if this is good for him or bad. Ben White (Politico) was on CNBC this morning. Said he wasn't even sure.
  • I thought the Fox tweet was really funny.

    The new Republican lineup for the debate is going to guarantee to be a shootem up good time.

    They'll still have a podium set up for Trump though, right?
  • I think he shows up late, heckles from the back, then throws his Allen Edmonds at Cruz.

    I hope they spend the whole debate talking crap about him.

    One of the talking heads pointed out that so far nobody has done any negative advertising on him nor has he gotten near the scrutiny from the press that Romney or Obama has received. I mean even the guys on Morning Joe need knee pads for their interviews with him.

    Seriously if he is intimidated by Meagan Kelly, how the hell are his deals with Putin going to be terrific?
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    “We learned from a secret back channel that the Ayatollah and Putin both intend to treat Donald Trump unfairly when they meet with him if he becomes president — a nefarious source tells us that Trump has his own secret plan to replace the Cabinet with his Twitter followers to see if he should even go to those meetings.”

    Yeah, not bad at all. kudos.

    I personally would enjoy nothing better than being berated by the comely Megyn Kelly, but you know, different strokes and all that.

    This wasn't a tweet but a statement by foxnews earlier this week:

    If I thought it would help, I would switch parties.

    Add in that I have no shot with Megyn and it's like reliving that Jr. High nightmare all over again.

    anyone else notice the use of the singular? I bet Mrs. Buffco does.

    Email me your bit. I'll work it in.

    And I promise not to CC Amy Schumer.
  • Guys, remember when it was crazy/outrageous that a candidate would scream BYAAAH at a rally? Times have changed.
