Roger Ailes' Final Pre-Debate Instructions To Megyn Kelly

Sweep the leg!

From The Hill:
Graham: Trump questions were an 'inquisition,' not a debate
By Mark Hensch

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) is criticizing Fox News, saying the moderators of Thursday night's debate were too harsh with GOP rival Donald Trump.

“This was more of an inquisition than it was a debate,” Graham said on MSNBC's “Morning Joe” on Friday morning. “It was a missed opportunity to talk about things that really mattered.”

Graham charged that debate moderators Bret Baier, Chris Wallace and Megyn Kelly were particularly unfair in their questioning of Trump, the outspoken billionaire who is leading many GOP polls.

“At the end of the day, ask the man a question that explains his position and his solutions rather than a ten-minute question that describes him as the biggest bastard on the planet,” Graham quipped.
The South Carolina lawmaker said Thursday night’s contest resulted in a lost chance at addressing crucial issues such as immigration reform.
This has nothing to do with issues or democracy.

This has to do with one rich asshole poaching the chumps which another rich asshole has spent a fortune cultivating, and rich asshole number two deploying his employees to take out rich asshole number one.

This is what happens when plutocrats go to the mattress.

Enjoy it while you can.

But Olin, dear— the man is the biggest bastard on the planet— relatively speaking. And it only seemed like a ten-minute question because the ugly truth is simply painful to endure, even when it's not directed at you.

So keep drinking. And maybe you'll begin to remember that you let the jackass out of the bag when you called him a... jackass.

Now get out of that smock and dress like a man.

Enjoy it while you can, indeed. Schadenfreude, thy name is Trump.

I'm going to guess that even in a world where there are NO consequences for being a tone-deaf churlish mean-spirited bully (he's such a breath of fresh air!), this implication that Megyn Kelly asked tough questions because it was "that time of the month" could be the beginning of the end. He peaked too soon.

So the Southern Senator Lindsey declare "inquisition". Let us apply his ideology of climate change denial to his inquisition, shall we?

Of course the GOP lit up the coal fired Crematory For Trump's final passage.

I think they hoped Trump would bring out the vote and their Koch leashed puppy could scoop them up with a butterfly net. Seems to be a poor investment. Aesop never riddled wealth produces brians.

Trump told the appalling truth about how the system is totally corrupted. Nobody cares. They are all up in arms about a loutish tweet.
