If it wasn’t for Donald Trump, CNN wouldn’t have had a debate last night. Seriously, I mean come on! Every single question had to do with what Trump had previously said. “According to Donald Trump…this” or “Donald Trump said…that” and then the rest of the GOP presidential wannabes were asked to respond.
Things got so kiss-ass that even the bloviated please talk about me all the time Donald Trump himself noticed and spoke about it the day after, on msnbc.
“I thought I was on too much,” Trump said. “I felt badly for everybody else. Every question had to do with me. Even the first characters, I mean, everything was about Trump.”
Now when this statement is being made by a man who toots his own horn every chance he gets, you know something is seriously wrong.
And then they go into this debate, and there was split screens all over the place. I’ve never seen anything like it. It was a little bit unfair to a lot of other people, frankly. But from my standpoint, I was treated fairly. Time magazine did a poll, and it had 67% say Trump won the debate. You know, I was listening to you talking about Carly, and I thought Carly was fine, but they saw it a little bit differently.”
CNN owes the American people an apology. No one, except CNN and Fox News, cares about Trump and his come pat me on my shoulder please campaigning style. People tuned into the debate to learn about the candidates’ position on the issues, and instead all we heard was candidates supporting Trump’s views, or where they disagreed with him.
Excuse me while I pat Trump on the shoulder for having the main stream media in his back pocket!
