The Second Republican Debate Was a Second Disaster. I Was Thankful to be on Scripps TV to Discuss.
Did you hear the words, "Middle Class", "Social Security", "AAA Bond Rating", "Poverty", "Interest on the Debt"? I did not.
Some of the things I said are here:
“The real question is Donald Trump has been convicted of sexually abusing a lady, ordered to pay $5 million in fines. Is that okay to be running for President. He has 91 counts of federal indictments against him, including what a middle-class Lieutenant Colonel is serving three years in jail for, taking home documents. The question should really be why is it okay that Donald Trump is not in jail?”
“This weakness by my party means the party has officially ended. There is no Republican party.”
“I didn’t see anyone go directly at Donald Trump. Referring to Donald Duck, that was one of the weakest things I’ve ever seen in a debate in my life.”
“Joe Biden won’t be the candidate. It will be somebody else. And the Republican party will lose if Donald Trump’s the candidate.” “The democrats are not stupid like we are in our party. We don’t have a party. You can say whatever you want at any time. You can insult whoever you want. You can make fun of John McCain. I think they’ll put up somebody else because President Biden cannot run again, that’s pretty obvious.”
“As the evil genius said in Michigan last night, Donald Trump, sounding much like Genesis 3:4-5,and the serpent, he says things that are half true and then hits home and he plays these people…”
