Remarkable. Trump claims that he can stand up to Putin, yet he runs whining like a baby at the very thought of facing Megyn Kelly: Trump will ‘definitely not’ participate in Fox debate, campaign says.
Note what a continual soap opera it is to placate a complete narcissist like Trump. Twenty-two conservative commentators and political pros question Trump’s conservative credentials over at the National Review, and the National Review staffers are immediately told that they can no longer moderate the debate because they are biased. Meanwhile, liberal moderators who are obviously hostile to the GOP and in the bag for Hillary can stay as debate moderators because they show fealty to Trump when in his magnificent presence. But what of Fox News, Trump’s biggest booster by far? Fox News dares to have a pretty lady as a moderator, and Trump bolts because she once made mean faces at him.
Are we really ready for four years of this? I’m sick of it already.
Apparently Trump polled his Twitter fans to see if he should attend the debate, and they said “no”. In response, Fox News released this statement:
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.
Not so far fetched: This is how populist governments work, and how Trump has run his campaign thus far.
