what, there's a Republican debate tonite at 8PM ET?

A critical moment of National Importance. It's on the CW a Holiday replacement no Son of a Critch, Whose Line Is It Anyway or The Big Bang Theory reruns?


What channel is the Republican debate on?

NewsNation says the event will air on its website and streaming platforms. It will be broadcast live on The CW network in the eastern half of the country and tape-delayed out West. NewsNation has been soliciting audience questions via an online submission form.

-
The two-hour debate will start at 8 p.m. ET Wednesday. It’s being moderated by NewsNation’s Elizabeth Vargas; Megyn Kelly, host of “The Megyn Kelly Show” on SiriusXM; and Eliana Johnson, editor-in-chief of The Washington Free Beacon.
-

Four Republicans will be on the debate stage, the smallest field yet as polling and donor benchmarks for qualification rise.

DeSantis, Ramaswamy, Haley and Christie met the Republican National Committee’s requirements to participate in Wednesday’s event in Tuscaloosa.

Will Chris Christie ask how trumpo will rule from a cell block?

And yet the primary candidate has never debated. He has, however, made his intentions clear. If elected, he will make himself king.

I made the mistake of watching at least some of it, and it was truly dreck.

None of them would take on Dump except for Chris Christie, and he got booed whenever he did.

Vivek needs to crawl back under the rock he came from.

The same is true for Ron, except 2x. Ron DeFascist indeed.

The only one other than Christie who sounded halfway sane was Nikki Haley, but her politics are loathsome.

Chris Christie and Ron DeSantis got into a heated back-and-forth about former President Trump.

“There’s no mystery to what he wants to do. He started off his campaign by saying, ‘I am your retribution.’ Eight years ago he said, ‘I am your voice,’” Christie said of Trump.

“This is an angry, bitter man who now wants to be back as president because he wants to exact retribution on anyone who has disagreed with him, anyone who’s tried to hold him to account for his own conduct, and every one of these policies that he’s talking about are about pursuing a plan of retribution,” Christie contended.

DeSantis was then asked whether he thinks Trump is fit to be president for another term. “Father time is undefeated,” the Florida governor said, referencing Trump’s age.

Christie pressed him on the response. “Why doesn’t he just answer the question? … Is he fit to be president or isn’t he?”

Christie says Trump won't be able to vote in 2024

In his closing statement of the night, Chris Christie predicted former President Trump won’t be able to cast a ballot in 2024 because of the legal battles he faces.

“Picture in your minds Election Day. You’ll all be heading to the polls to vote. And that’s something Donald Trump will not be able to do,” Christie said. “Because he will be convicted of felonies before then, and his right to vote will be taken away.”
-

Christie’s remark prompted boos from the Tuscaloosa audience.

“You can boo about it all you like and continue to deny reality. But if we deny reality as a party, we’re going to have four more years of Joe Biden,” Christie said.

This was Christie's strongest moment of the night. Particularly that last statement... he may actually be right, because one point made by Nikki Haley does somewhat ring true: that she would be more likely to beat Biden than Trump would. Dump has just wayyyy too much baggage, not the least of which is his age and his continuing to make disturbing statements about what he'd do if reelected.

Once again the clear winner of the debate was Trump.

When is the democratic party debate?

History lesson for the (intentionally?) uninformed…

No incumbent president has participated in a primary debate since Ford, 48 years and 6 Presidents ago, and he assumed the presidency only because Nixon resigned; he was never ELECTED President.

My take:

Haley was interviewing to be the candidate.

DeSanctimonious and Ramasmarmy interviewing to be Trump's VP pick.

Christie interviewing to be Haley's VP pick.

So there are no other democratic candidates allowed to run for President? We know Biden is too old and feeble minded to debate anything. based on funding from Democratic super PACs their best candidate is Nikki Haley

Why do you continue to support a self-admitted dictator? That's completely UN-American. patriot smiley

That sounds right.

Christie needs to drop out and put his support , and funding, behind Nikki Haley.

Her growing hawkishness is hard to watch, but she started that at the UN and it works with her constituency.

As disconcerting as that is, it's probably a good strategy.
