Trump Decides To Skip Next Debate Because He’s Already Got The GOP By The Balls, Debate Canceled

Screen Shot 2016-03-16 at 1.10.38 PM copy

Rubio’s done. Kasich is irrelevant. And the world is too busy comparing Cruz to various fictional characters to give a shit about his “traditional Christian family values.” Trump has the Republican party nomination in the bag — so much so, that he won’t even bother to show up to the next GOP debate on Fox News. Hell, he didn’t even know about it.

From Gawker:

“Nobody even told me about it,” Trump claimed this morning on Fox and Friends. “I thought the last debate on CNN was the last debate. That was going to be it… I think we’ve had enough debates. How many times can the same people ask you the same question?”

He’s got a point. The hosts of those debates are broken records.

Real talk though, this has got to be one of the biggest power moves ever made in a presidential race. Donald just said, “Fuck it, I’m not going.” So the debate was CANCELED. Has this ever happened in the history of politics? Trump is running shit and he’s not even elected yet. No one cares what Cruz and Kasich have to say. Stick a fork in both of ’em.

It’s Trump versus Hillary. Accept that now.

        You can’t honestly tell me you would rather live in a country ran by Hilary Clinton. Whether you like trump or not, I’d take just about anyone over Hilary

        I detest Hillary, but she’s a crony establishment figure and no different from Bush or Obama; she won’t rock the boat. Trump will capsize the boat with his anti-free market protectionist economic policies.

        Are you kidding? A TV spot for the general election writes itself. All the DNC has to do is Play the beatings at his rally and every stupid line if shit he has said over and over again. The Dems have this one, just vote for GOP representatives and senators and make things normal again in the party. Feel free to vote libertarian though for president, it’s probably the best option at this point.

        Gary Johnson for president. It’s about damn time we had a relevant, moderate third party in this country again

    This goes to show how much the media needs Trump to be relevant and in the lead so they can exceed expectation on ratings. The media is deciding this election, and that’s a sad reality.

      As much as I don’t like either of them, this definitely happened on the Dem side too. Media crowned Hillary as the nominee from day one. Kinda feel bad for Bernie because he actually seems like a decent person.

    As a registered independent I think this is awful for the Republican Party. Kasich is the only one who makes any sense. If everyone is being realistic the GOP is handing the presidency to Hillary if Trump gets the nomination. You don’t have to like it but that’s the reality of the situation; I’m not a fan of Hillary by any means. Trump does absolutely awful with moderates and the left and even after the primaries if he acts more presidential he won’t be able to put his past behind him. Republicans need to get a different nomination up and with Rubio dropping out and Kasich going down that path it doesn’t look good

      People were saying the same thing about trump’s chances of winning the Republican nomination. Take that song and dance back over to CNN

      8 years ago at 1:46 pm
    2. BoozeBowsBoys

      I don’t understand why he’s so unpopular with moderates and lefts. If you look at his actual policies and stances, not the bullshit one-liners that the media pays all the attention to, he is probably the single most liberal GOP candidate.

      8 years ago at 1:50 pm
      1. JohnRedcorn211

        I just don’t like him because he’s a reality show star turned politician. it’s very obvious he has no idea what he’s doing, but just wings it. If you want him over a proven politician (I know people don’t like them), go ahead.

        8 years ago at 1:59 pm
      2. CantDriveDixieDown

        He’s the only candidate who’s policy transcends party lines. He’s pro choice, anti Obamacare, in favor of less strict drug laws, doesn’t give a fuck about our guns, wants to secure the borders, and he fucking hates terrorists. Sure he may be loud and offensive, but I dont care. I’ll take that over some jackass who just says what the GOP tells him to say

      3. Gunther13

        Dixie, he hasn’t said word one about how he’s going to do any of those things. That’s not policy, it’s just rhetoric. He will say literally anything that he thinks will boost his numbers.

        8 years ago at 2:28 pm
      4. BoozeBowsBoys

        Give me one candidate, hell give me one politician in general, who won’t say whatever they think it is that will raise their numbers you dipshit.
        That is literally what politics have become, don’t act like Trump’s the only one who does it.

        Gunther that’s what all politicians do…they say what they (their crew of political sci major pledges in the background breaking down stats and polls and votes deciding what demographic votes what way based on whatever stance in whatever issue) think will get them elected. You’d have to try really hard to convince me there’s any truly genuine politicians that are anywhere near federal positions. My brother works on the hill, was a campaign manager for one congressman, he says its bullshit. It’s playing demographics. It’s a show.

        I’m with CantDriveDixieDown. While Trump may be an overly confident savage 90% of the time, he will get the job done and his stances are actually very reasonable. Also, you can’t belittle him by pointing out he was a TV star before this, have you forgotten about Reagan? I’m not someone who is completely out of touch with reality, or a blind follower, but I’m rooting for the Don.

        8 years ago at 3:24 pm
      8. Donnie Fratzoff

        Establishment crony politicians are bad yes. But that doesn’t make every political outsider good. The “Don” has anti-free market policies wrapped up in rhetoric that gets him votes along with his overall media grabbing persona.

        Plenty of executives in this country had no political experience prior to being elected. Ronald Reagan was a movie star (and a liberal Democrat) before he became governor of one of this country’s largest states. Grant (who in retrospect was a huge mistake), Taylor, and Ike never held public office prior to the presidency. Herbert Hoover never held public office or military command.

        8 years ago at 3:02 pm
      11. Donnie Fratzoff

        He was also a well educated elected Union leader. That’s basically a political position. Also Reagan was known for hiring numerous experts to consult on everything he did. Trump was never elected to anything. Nor has he ever held any office or position. Nor has he given any examples of experts he’d bring on to help him form policy.

        8 years ago at 4:05 pm
      12. TossMeABronson

        Honestly, the fact that he is a political outsider makes me like him the most. I’m tired of political party and special interest lapdogs who will say anything to get elected. Trump doesn’t give a damn about who he offends because he has nothing to gain personally of financially by winning. In fact, because of all the negative publicity, it’s probably safe to say he has actually lost money since he started running. And he won’t be in anybody’s hip pocket as POTUS because he hasn’t been currying favors with big business or party elites. That’s why they’re scared shitless of him.

        Some people (myself included) agree with some of his policies but his personality is not fit for the job. He changes his stance mid-day and makes irrational decisions without thinking them through. He also doesn’t understand the difference between politically correct and just plain correct, and seems uninformed on a lot of issues (a trade deficit is not theft, it is simply us buying from Mexico more than they buy from us)

        The job of politicians is to not fuck up the country enough to end their career, and for the most part they’re pretty good at keeping it right on the brink (both parties). Donald Trump is no politician, and the presidency isn’t a job he can fix with money. He’s pissed too many people off, he’ll get less cooperation than even Obama had, our allies already hate him, and he’s going to drive this country to irreparable shit. I want Kasich, I think he’d do a great job as president but at this rate it’s unrealistic. However, I at least know the Clinton’s are decent enough at not fucking up the country to the point where they lose their jobs.

        8 years ago at 2:29 pm
      2. BoozeBowsBoys

        “The Clinton’s are decent enough at not fucking up the country” Have you paid no attention to Hillary at all, ever?

        I’m not a fan of Hillary, but continuously going after this benghazi and email stuff if nonsense, she may have fucked up regarding Gaddafi but that was something agreed upon by both sides of the political spectrum at the time. I’m simply saying shes been in politics too long to be careless and endanger her political future, which gives me a slight level of comfort when put next to trump.

      4. LordSchermerhorn

        Nonsense? People died? How can you just sweep that under the rug? That’s the problem nowadays. Nobody is held accountable for any of their actions. People are afraid of Trump because he will 100% hold people accountable, which means they are in deep shit.

        8 years ago at 3:09 pm
      5. Gunther13

        The perplexing thing about Benghazi is that if HC and the admin had acted, they’d have been vilified for negotiating with terrorists. It’s a lot grayer than a lot of people are willing to admit. Not saying she handled it correctly. It’s just always been a strange stand for Republicans.

        Aaron Hernandez talking about not fucking up enough to the point where you ruin your career

        8 years ago at 3:26 pm
      7. aaronhernandez

        Exactly, logically speaking the risk factor with Hillary is much less than Trump because her entire career goes out the window if she fucks up because all she has is politics. Trump, as big of a jackass he is, has his businesses to fall back on and would be perfectly fine if he tanked his presidency.

    Congrats to every one who voted for Trump on electing Hillary Clinton the next POTUS. Hope you’re all happy. Personally I’m still holding a glimmer of hope that Cruz will offer Kasich VP so that he’ll drop out, then the 60%-65% of GOP voters in remaining states who realize Trump is full of shit and a life long prigressive Democrat will give Cruz the nomination.

      I’d take Trump over any of the lying career politicians any day of the week. How many times have you heard the same BS from these candidates who seem like angels sent from above, only to get elected and change completely. I’d rather roll the dice with Trump and see where he takes us rather than see the same old thing happen over and over again. You do realize every other candidate is being funded by lobbyists and special interest groups who basically tell them what to do? That’s why Trump gets so much hate. He simply cannot be bought out and that scares the hell out of the establishment.

      8 years ago at 2:38 pm
      1. Donnie Fratzoff

        It’s not rolling the dice we know what he wants and can do. And crony establishment politicians are bad, but that doesn’t mean every anti-establishment political outsider is good. Trump has terrible anti-free market policies and his foreign policy experience is literally nill.

        He’s not anti-trade. He’s anti losing 700 trillion dollars a year to trade deficits. That’s not free trade. It’s unfair trade. We need money. Not to be greedy, but to pay off our 20 trillion in debt. How is it a smart policy to lose jobs (which drives down GDP) and have a massive trade deficit, while simultaneously increasing spending and debt? So no, he’s not anti-trade. The trade deals are just one of many problems.

        So you’d rather have a president that is blatantly going to do a bad job than a president that might do a bad job or might do a good job? Also trump flip flops a fucking ton and is racist as shit this dude will bring so many internal problems.

        It almost pains me to see fellow fraternity men supporting Hillary. If you’re against Trump, you like Hillary. Plain and simple. No other candidate has a snowballs chance in hell to beat her except Trump. Get on the train or get run over.

      7. Saber and Key

        Uh, no. General election polls have been consistently showing Clinton beating Trump, and lately her margin of victory over him has been growing. Kasich is the only GOP candidate left who is beating Hillary in general election polls. Voting for Trump at this point is essentially voting for Clinton. It’d probably end up in one of the most lopsided elections in history and the GOP will be mocked for years to come if Trump is nominated.
