Donald Trump-moderated debate will be a lonely affair

  • 2 GOP candidates will attend the Donald Trump debate source

» It only takes two to tango: The Newsmax-hosted, Donald Trump-moderated Republican debate later this month will feature only Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum, as Jon Huntsman, Ron Paul, Mitt Romney, Rick Perry and Michele Bachmann have all declined to attend. This is somewhat embarrassing for Trump and Gingrich, although Santorum could stand to benefit from going toe-to-toe with this month’s frontrunner. Question: Was Gary Johnson, who always complains about not being invited to these things, invited?

Lol.
The emailed reaction of Tim Miller, a spokesman for Jon Huntsman’s presidential campaign, upon being asked if Huntsman would participate in next month’s GOP debate moderated by Donald Trump and sponsored by conservative website Newsmax. “We look forward to watching Mitt and Newt suck-up to The Donald with a big bowl of popcorn,” Miller told Business Insider. (via officialssay)

Ahahahahahahaha.

Apocalypse now? Donald Trump is going to moderate a debate.
Who would show up for such a thing? Likely everybody.

Though presidential candidates may initially balk at the idea of  appearing in a debate where Mr. Trump – with his bombast and The Hair –  is the one posing the questions, they may ultimately see it as an  invitation they can’t refuse. In fact many of the candidates have  already met with him, some more publicly than others. Representative Michele Bachmann has sat down with Mr. Trump several times this year. Gov. Rick Perry of Texas had dinner with him at Jean Georges, the posh Manhattan restaurant. And Mitt Romney paid a visit but carefully avoided being photographed.
And Newsmax is a powerful player itself. It has a broad reach into the conservative base, with monthly  Web traffic second only to Fox News among sites with  conservative-leaning audiences.


Looks like our post-Christmas plans just got a little crazy.

I have a great relationship with the blacks, I’ve always had a great relationship with the blacks.
Donald Trump, while announcing his candidacy for president. Read more at The Atlantic Wire. (via theatlantic) … This story has an amazing lede: "Is there a phrase more exciting to the politics junkie than "Newsmax Exclusive"? That’s the means by which the latest bit of Donald Trump news comes to us."
