GOP Candidates Play with Fire: Donald Trump’s “Classy Debate”

Posted on Dec 6 2011 - 1:00am by Harrison

Keepin' it classy!

Fox News’ Redeye host Greg Gutfeld called the upcoming Republican debate, moderated by the False Hair God and Heir Apparent, “Donald Trump’s Classy Debate” and, though it won’t really be called that, it should.  Sarcasm intended.  Newsmax is hosting the event.

My favorite candidate, John Huntsman, said he wouldn’t participate in the December 27th event and Ron Paul said “I didn’t realize he [Trump] had the ability to lay on hands and anoint people.”

Trump didn’t like Paul’s snub very much and said of him:

As I said in the past and will reiterate again, Ron Paul has a zero chance of winning either the nomination or the presidency.  Few people take Ron Paul seriously and many of his views and presentation make him a clown-like candidate.

Trump also said that Ron Paul is “either very jealous of Mr. Trump, stupid, or a combination of both.”  Since he referred to himself in the third person like Bob Dole was want to do, you know it’s serious!

Of John Huntsman, Trump said:

I am glad he and Jon Huntsman, who has inconsequential poll numbers or a chance of winning, will not be attending the debate and wasting the time of the viewers who are trying very hard to make a very important decision.

Of Trump, Huntsman said:

I’m not going to kiss his ring and I’m not going to kiss any other part of his anatomy.

Already we can see just how “classy” Trump is and how can his debate not carry forth that spirit as well?

What could possibly go wrong?

As of today, Newt Gingrich, attention whore, is the only one to accept.  But he’s playing with fire as everyone who comes into contact with The Donald comes out a loser… wives, investors… you name it.

This could be Newt’s Waterloo.

Comb by yah my Lord, Comb by yah...

Donald Trump is only concerned with Donald Trump and, like wrestling with a pig, whomever participates in this event will only end up soiled while Trump will somehow enhance his “prestige.”

The Donald has stated that he already has a candidate in mind to endorse (probably Gingrich) but he won’t say until after the event.

Newt said of Trump’s future endorsement:

Of course I want his endorsement.


I have not been a fan of all the Republican presidential debates… there have been far too many and it feels like an extended session of speed dating.

Summing it up best, Ron Paul spokesperson Jesse Benton said:

If he gets his act together, President Paul might consider getting his advice on fixing our country’s financial situation.  We understand Donald has a lot of experience with bankruptcy.

For once, Capitol Commentary can entirely agree with the Paul campaign.

    I am not sure why the candidates would get involved in this–Trump is doing this for one reason and one reason only, himself and the candidates would do well to say no thanks.

      Exactly. I guess Newt figures “might as well” or something… anything for a polling number.

    Donald Trump who? For the life of me, I can’t figure out why anyone would want or care about Trump’s endorsement. He is really good about spending other people’s money and as the Paul campaign said, is very familiar with bankruptcy. The only thing he is after is promoting himself, period.

    What the real disgrace here is that one of the moderators will by Eason Jordan who admitted back in ’05 that CNN covered up the human rights atrocities of Sadaam Hussein in order to maintain access there in Iraq.

    Walter Duranty would’ve been proud.

    Were I a presidential candidate, I would make it known that was my reason for not attending.

      That would be an esoteric reason that would likely gain voters!

      How did you remember that factoid?

    Because of all the obvious controversy surrounding the war in Iraq, it was just one of those things that stuck out in my mind like a sore thumb and I have never forgotten about it.

    Similar to John Murtha claiming Marines had murdered Iraqi civilians, it’s a disgusting and sickening set of circumstances that I’ll never be able to shake.

      Murtha… disgusting human being.

    Well ‘The Apprentice’ ran out of juice, so this must be the Donald’s lame attempt for a spin-off. I would love to see Simon Cowell and the Donald in action together.
