Donald Trump reportedly spoke on Monday to former CEO of Hewlett-Packard Carly Fiorina about the job of director of national intelligence.
So now “Celebrity Candidate 2016” is about to be canceled. What’s more, there’s no audience for repeat broadcasts after everybody knows who won.
“The media and establishment want me out of the race so badly – I WILL NEVER DROP OUT OF THE RACE, WILL NEVER LET MY SUPPORTERS DOWN!” Trump tweeted on Saturday afternoon.
We know Republicans are responsible for Trump, because you can be assured they’ll take credit for him if he wins. Here’s a quick review of who deserves the most blame.
Nominating Carly Fiorina as his vice presidential pick was supposed to signal an upward trajectory for Ted Cruz’s flailing presidential campaign, though to most it seemed little more than a last ditch effort to stop Trump from securing the party nomination in Indiana, and later in California, where Fiorina was a candidate for the U.S. Senate in 2010.
Forty years ago, when the Texas senator was just a 5-year-old at his parents home in Houston, another Republican candidate for president who was lagging behind in delegates and hoping to clinch the nomination with a desperately play named a vice presidential nominee. It was 1976, and presidential hopeful was Ronald Reagan.
In what can only be described as a last ditch effort to stop Donald Trump from securing the Republican Party nomination, Texas senator Ted Cruz announced former presidential candidate Carly Fiorina as his vice president pick. His campaign hopes that a Cruz-Fiorina ticket will energize his campaign as he gets closer to the July convention.
This decision brings to a close a candidacy that started out as minor league before shooting up to top-tier status — at least for a while.
In what can only be described as a bad judgement call, Carly Fiorina turned a group of young schoolchildren into becoming props for a rally against abortion in Des Moines, Iowa.
Carly Fiorina may have gotten demoted to the undercard debate last night — but she came in first place for cringe-inducing smarminess.
In the fraught final two weeks before the Iowa caucuses, a rowdy, rambunctious group of agitated Republican candidates rehearsed their talking points and took well-honed snipes at each other in the first GOP debates of 2016 — and the sixth of the cycle — in Charleston, South Carolina. The debates, which aired on Fox Business, touched on gun control, ISIS, immigration policy, tax reform, and the utter devastation that would ensue from a Hillary Clinton presidency.
Rand Paul will not be on the main debate stage Thursday night in South Carolina and, for now at least, he’s sticking with his refusal to partake in the undercard debate.
A new frankness and sympathy concerning the physical, emotional and financial costs of drug addiction comes as white middle-class Americans have found their lives upended by the emergence of heroin as the drug of choice for their children and grandchildren.
Each week we round up the looniest examples of right-wing bigotry, idiocy, and bizarre behavior in our “This Week In Crazy” column. Now it’s time to take stock of the entire year — which gave us more inanity, head-spinning untruth, and backwards thinking than anyone could have expected or should have to endure. This is 2015 — The Year In Crazy…
The Republican debates resemble actual politics about as much as ‘The Apprentice’ resembles actual business or Trump resembles an actual statesman. The deception and propaganda masquerading as tough tough talk began at the first debate and just keeps getting worse. Here are the five worst moments so far.
Republican Donald Trump is “a big Christmas gift wrapped up under the tree” for Hillary Clinton because he couldn’t beat the 2016 Democratic presidential front-runner in a general election, Carly Fiorina said Sunday.
Hello, fellow warriors against Christmas. Please take your seat under this non-denominational spruce tree, next to this avowedly un-sacred crackling December fire. Everyone have their mug of profane winter nog? Good.
“We’re talking about ruthless things tonight,” co-moderator Hugh Hewitt said deep in the second debate. Indeed, Rick Santorum kicked off the affair by asserting, “We have entered World War III,” setting the tone for a pair of fractious, grim GOP debates focussed on national security and terrorism.
This Thanksgiving, take some time away from the warm hearth of fellowship and family time, and join me as we wallow in the mire of right-wing mendacity, ignorance, and fear. There’s plenty of room.
“Democrats do make it worse.” The GOP candidates in the fourth debate spent most of the evening affirming that very point, with varying shades of — and success at — charisma, but not disagreeing on much.
The Republican candidates constantly insult Clinton, but how would any of these slippery blowhards survive something like the 11-hour Benghazi grilling she breezed through on Capitol Hill? If you want to understand who they are, just listen to them whine.
Here we are again. The engorged ensemble of Republican primary candidates will meet for their third televised smackdown (ahem, debate) Wednesday night. Here’s what you need to know.
