Trumped and OutFoxed: The Republicans’ Undemocratic Debate
And a bloviating billionaire shall lead them … into debate.
Welcome to the new world of political discourse, a national “debate” among presidential contenders that really should be called “Presidential Celebrity Apprentice: A Donald Trump-Fox News Production.”
In prime time tomorrow evening, Trump and nine other Republican presidential hopefuls who made the first “cut” based on their showings in five recent national polls, square off against each other for two hours. An undercard slate of seven who didn’t poll will have to make do with an hour of air time in a separate, non-prime-time debate earlier.
Leid Stories says the much-vaunted debate is indeed historic–though not for reasons most would think.
