Trump’s pro-wrestler talk, however, seems like a hint that he might simply be drumming up more ratings for a debate he will indeed attend.
“No, I’ve learned not to answer questions. That’s one of the things that you do now in political discourse,” Bush said, letting out a laugh.
“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.
Watch the Republican frontrunner — who has made his own vitriolic remarks about minority groups — talk about how uncomfortable Scalia’s comments made him.
We’re now at point where a presidential candidate has to defend his honor by insisting he really did try to stab his friend and to bludgeon his mother.
Not only did CNN’s Anderson Cooper pose several tough questions to Clinton, from the very beginning of the debate, but he seized every chance to pillory Hillary in framing questions he put to the other candidates. (And he did ask her — and the others — about the damned emails.)
How gratifying to hear a leading presidential candidate sound like a normal American and not get punished for it. Newt Gingrich once called Democrats “the enemy of normal Americans.” Who’s looking normal now?
In a truly painful interview Wednesday afternoon on CNN, Wolf Blitzer repeatedly asked Lincoln Chafee an sharply focused set of questions: Why are you still running?
Even when the Democratic candidates disagreed, the first debate was largely an appeal to pragmatism, conciliation, and — for the most part — unapologetically progressive principles.
My instincts told me that if we just gave the Hillary email story another poke or two, the whole house of cards would collapse.
Rand Paul is blasting Donald Trump for causing politics to sink so low — and wondering how anyone could think this “clown” is fit to be president.
The letter from immigration activists cite a recent attack on a Latino man in Boston in which the suspect may have cited Trump as an inspiration.
CNN anticipates its largest audience ever when Donald Trump, Jeb Bush and nine other contenders meet Wednesday at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley.
Call it the “Spinal Tap” debate — because it’s going up to 11 candidates, and you might need to get an actual spinal tap after watching it.
Well, now Rand Paul has really stepped in some trouble: He has just denigrated Donald Trump — which means that a return round of brutal (and comedic) insults from The Donald can’t be far behind.
One of Donald Trump’s political allies is now helping to remind everyone just how crazy the paranoid right wing is. Joe Arpaio, the sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona, appeared on CNN to reiterate that he is the “chief law enforcement officer” — and he’s still investigating President Obama’s birth certificate.
