The format and content of upcoming Republican debates became increasingly uncertain on Monday after Donald Trump’s campaign said the real estate mogul would negotiate his terms directly with television executives instead of as part of a joint effort with his rivals. [Washington Post]
THE TRUTH is exactly what Governor Chris Christie expressed on “Morning Joe” on Monday, which was proven through the immediate backlash against the CNBC debate. Let the moderators ask whatever they want, because new and social media connections make reviews immediate, and when they resonate, viral, too. Everyone has biases, but how a candidate responds to what comes at him or her in the form of a debate question has a way of evening out. If the politician is ready to be president in the new and social media era.
President Obama said it best.
What Republican candidates this year deserve is to face the audio carnival barkers that produced the outsiders that now stand on the stage. Of course, I’m referring to the right-wing radio raconteurs who have been waiting for this moment for a long time.
So, now Donald Trump is negotiating his own terms and everyone thinks he’s a hero.
If Hillary Clinton tried such a ballsy move the press would barbecue her for impersonating Evita Peron again.
The Republican National Committee is under siege.
Debbie Wasserman-Schultz feels Reince Priebus’s pain.
What no one can answer is whether the wide open media free for all, with all of its options and avenues to circumvent traditional mediums, will produce an outsider Republican nominee that has little chance in prevailing during the general election.
Jeb can fix it, right?
