Donald Trump's plan to moderate a Republican debate -- arguably the worst idea in the history of politics -- is now officially kaput. He has "pulled out" just in case he decides to run as an independent again.
(Oh, come on! For cyring out loud, Donald. There were only two people who were going to attend the debate. One of them had already prostrated himself in front of you, so he doesn't count, and the other doesn't count, period. This wasn't a "debate," it was a sitcom.)
Anyway, don't say we didn't tell you this wasn't going to happen. We did. But you figured it out for yourself anyway.
In his statement, Trump said:
"I am not willing to give up my right to run as an independent candidate. Therefore, so that there is no conflict of interest within the Republican Party, I have decided not to be the moderator of the Newsmax debate. The American people are embarrassed by the gridlock currently taking place in Washington. I must leave all of my options open because, above all else, we must make America great again!" He also said: "This would not only have been the most-watched debate, but also the most substantive and interesting debate!"
Yes, Trumpster! Interesting. Crazy interesting.
