Politics: Donald Trump is out as GOP debate moderator

  • See what Donald Trump is doing here? He’s waving goodbye. News broke today that, on the heels of every consequential GOP candidate save Newt Gingrich (which admittedly is only two other guys) stating they would not attend Newsmax’s Trump-moderated debate, the man himself won’t suffer the embarrassment, though he’s cited conflict of interest as his excuse. Said Trump: “It is very important to me that the right Republican candidate be chosen to defeat the failed and very destructive Obama Administration, but if that Republican, in my opinion, is not the right candidate, I am not willing to give up my right to run as an Independent candidate.” So, basically, even when the action might imply this election process is about more than just Trump — it’s all about Trump.
