Huntsman and Paul Available for Real Debate

While the lesser candidates are kissing Trump’s pinkie ring at the NewsMax Reality Debate Show, Huntsman and Paul should have a real debate.

Clown Donald Trump is hosting the next Republicandog and pony show. Seems appropriate to me but Jon Huntsman and Ron Paul disagree; apparently thinking that running for president should be serious business.

In declining to participate in the glorification of Diddly Trump, Paul’s campaign chairman Jesse Benton said,

Mr. Trump’s selection is also wildly inappropriate because of his record of toying with the serious decision of whether to compete for our nation’s highest office, a decision he appeared to make frivolously.

Jon Huntsman spokesman, Tim Miller’s response in an email to Business Insider was appropriately snarky:

Lol. We look forward to watching Mitt and Newt suck-up to The Donald with a big bowl of popcorn

What’s really ironic is that Paul and Huntsman could have a good substantive debate on their own without the distraction of the clown candidates.

UPDATE: Romney is available too. He’d be welcome in a debate sandwich between Paul and Huntsman

    Trump has dismissed Paul and Huntsman as real candidates as well, saying they don’t have a chance of winning. Apparently, Trump believes that the candidate with the most consistent record (Paul) and the candidate with the most going on in the terms of brain activity (Hunstman) are the two least likely to get the nomination. Now, those are the two candidates not showing up to what is being called a debate but will more likely become a fawning tribute to Trump. Trump’s first question will likely be “what do you think is my best quality?”

    Great idea. The three of them (Paul, Huntsman, and Romney) can have a discussion of ideas and goals for the country while Donald and friends make asses of themselves. Then again, where is the entertainment value in that?

    I got it. Trumps holding tryouts for a new reality show based on the apprentice. He’ll whittle them down to one candidate left them annoint him as the TV president. Huntsman and Paul aren’t invited because they are bad at reading scripts.
