|Ratings will take a hit. Trump skips the right wing network's debate.|
Late word that Donald Trump is skipping the debate. Trump said he'll be fine.
If he showed up to the debate he would have appeared with Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Chris Christie, Ben Carson, Jeb Bush, John Kasich and the crybaby Rand Paul.
Paul cried his way back to the main stage. He was throwing a hissy fit when he was banished to the kiddie table. He decided to not attend the previous debate.
The kiddie table debate will now include Jim Gilmore. He will join Rick Santorum, Mike Huckabee and Carly Fiorina for the kiddie table.
He believes that Megyn "The Outrage Princess" will try to bait him with questions that may come off as a bias.
Will it hurt him with the supporters?
Already, Cruz, Paul, Carson, Christie and Bush went after him for not showing up.
On the AM agitators, I've heard the old fart Limbaugh and that Ratface Mark Levin go after Trump for saying he can be a deal maker with Democrats. They fear that his comments may have sealed his fate. Last week Megyn hosted a bunch of conservative agitators who denounced Trump as a viable candidate. That set Trump off. He swore on his grave that if Megyn was the moderator, he would not attend.
He stood by his word.
That annoying conservative agitator Sean Hannity has been so far the biggest cheerleader for Donald Trump. I haven't heard much out of him yet. But on his right wing carnival he probably will address this issue. He is no fan of Megyn "The Outrage Princess" Kelly. After all Kelly took the spot he's occupied for 15 years.
Trump released a statement.
As someone who wrote of the best-selling business books of all time, The Art of the Deal, who has build an incredible company, including some of the most valuable and iconic assets in the world, and as someone who has a person net worth of many billions of dollars, Mr. Trump knows a bad deal when he sees one. Fox News is making tens of millions of dollars on debates, and setting ratings records (the highest in history), where as in previous years they were low-rated afterthoughts.
Unlike the very stupid, highly incompetent people running our country into the ground, Mr. Trump knows when to walk away. Roger Ailes and Fox News think they can toy with him, but Mr. Trump doesn't play games.
There have been six debates, and according to all online debate polls including Drudge, Slate, Time Magazine and many others, Mr. Trump has won all of them, in particular the last one. Whereas he has always been a job creator and not a debater, he nevertheless truly enjoys the debating process - and it has been very good for him, bot in polls and popularity.
He will not be participating in the Fox News debate and instead host an event in Iowa to raise money for the Veterans and Wounded Warriors, who have been treated so horribly by our all talk, no action politicians. Like running for office as an extremely successful person, this takes guts and it is the kind mentality our country needs in order to Make America Great Again.
Seriously, Trump has been a ratings cash cow for the agitators. That right wing network enjoyed a ratings bump because of his appearances.
Trump is clearly leading in the national polls but post-tantrum we'll see if he finally took a hit for all the outrageous and bona fide crazy.
Besides Trump and Paul. Back in 2007, then Sen. Barack Obama and Sen. Hillary Clinton along with John Edwards, and Bill Richardson decided to skip that network's Democratic debate in Nevada.
Ailes made an inappropriate comment about Obama. The Obama campaign said that they've had enough of the ignorance. They were skipping the debate. It didn't hurt him in the polls. Matter of fact, it helped him win the election.
Trump's bombastic rhetoric earned him the endorsements of Jerry Falwell, Jr., the president of Liberty University and Joe Arpaio, the controversial sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona.
