Donald Trump says a lot of things. His followers do not seem to mind what he says. He is quoted as saying:
“I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters,” Trump said at a campaign rally in Sioux Center, Iowa. “It’s, like, incredible.”
Trump truly believes this. He has a big ego, but so far, he has been right about his supporters. They do not seem to care about what Trump does or says, but Trump does care what people say to him.
Somehow he can’t get over Megyn Kelly confronting him on his remarks about women. She reminded him that he had called women “fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals” and once made suggestive comments to a contestant on his reality TV show. Donald did not like this, although he admitted he had called Rosie O’Donnell at least some of those names and he called Megyn a ‘Bimbo’, (later deleted) and called her a “lightweight.” He made suggestive remarks about Carly Fiorina’s face. None of this matters to his supporters, but being reminded of it seems to matter a lot to the ‘Donald.’
Now Megyn is again hosting a Republican debate.
Matt Drudge ran a news item saying that ‘Donald Trump will definitely not be at the Fox Debate this Thursday.‘
Trump should not, and says he will not, show up:
“He’s definitely not participating in the Fox News debate,” Lewandowski said. “His word is his bond.”
Trump also is quoted as saying:
“They’re dealing with someone who’s a little bit different. They can’t toy with me like they toy with everybody else,” he added.
It seems to me that he is a lot different from other candidates. Other candidates are more concerned with policy and what our nation is facing than with a showdown with a debate host. The other candidates have supporters who care about their pasts and about what they will do if elected. All other candidates are held accountable for what they say and do. Trump is definitely different.
Do you think Donald Trump boycotting the debate will help him, hurt him, or have no effect on his campaign?
