Do you really want to know why Donald Trump is justified in declining to attend the Jan. 28 presidential debate? Simply stated, Trump would not participate in this debate just as you would not sit in on a poker game if you knew one of the players was a cheater.
Trump’s objection is directed toward debate moderator Megyn Kelly. Kelly purposefully attempted to wrongfully demean Trump during the August 2015 presidential debate. Trump is not impermissibly hanging on to past events because Kelly is just as treacherous today as she was six months ago.
Let me expand upon Kelly’s treachery. Kelly deliberately manipulated the facts in crafting the “on her knees” question she posed to Trump during the first presidential debate. Kelly’s clear intent was to suggest Trump had made a vulgar comment. The actual facts show his remark was innocent. Kelly’s improper manipulation of the facts was fully reported by Mark Levin during his Aug. 7, 2015, radio broadcast.
Kelly is a bona fide cheater. She is a cheater because the rules of the game do not allow for the manipulative distortions she apparently likes to use. Trump, or anyone else for that matter, is not obligated to participate in an event where a known cheater will be part of the game.
Never miss a local story.
