Donald Trump and Ben Carson Threaten to Boycott The Next GOP Debate on CNBC (Update: CNBC Caves to Demands)
TRUMP AND CARSON THREATEN TO SKIP THE CNBC DEBATE …
The two outsider, non-establishment GOP candidates, Donald Trump and Ben Carson, have threatened to boycott the upcoming GOP debates on CNBC after the networked changed the rules in extending the debate time from 2 to 3 hours.The problem does not just seem to be the extension of the the time, but instead it appears that CNBC wants to add extra ad time so to make money. REALLY? CNBC is the business channel arm of the NBC, but looking ti make a buck off of what is supposed to be an informative Q&A with presidential hopefuls?
The political Odd Couple take it to CNBC
What would a GOP presidential primary debate be if it did not have the two front running candidates? Without Trump and Carson, CNBC can expect to have an audience of whatever the total count make up is the remaining candidates family and friends.
Donald Trump and Ben Carson are both threatening to boycott the next Republican presidential debate if CNBC, who is hosting the event, and the Republican National Committee do not change the stated format of the event.
“Neither Mr. Trump or Dr. Carson will participate in your debate if it is longer than 120 minutes including commercials and does not include opening and closing statements,” the letter, obtained exclusively by NBC News and signed by both candidates, reads.
They take issue with CNBC’s plans for a debate that doesn’t include opening and closing statements, and runs two hours plus up to another 16 minutes in commercial breaks. According to Politico, CNBC distributed a memo outlining these plans that indicated all candidates had agreed to them.
In the letter, the candidates write that “neither of our campaigns agreed to either the length you propose or your ban on opening or closing statements. In fact, neither of our campaigns were even consulted.”
CNBC has agreed to limit its Republican primary debate later this month to two hours, acquiescing to the demands of Donald Trump and other GOP campaigns, CNN has confirmed.
A source with knowledge of the decision said the Republican National Committee was putting in calls to the campaigns on Friday morning to inform them of the new format, which will cap the debate to two hours, including commercials.
Early Friday morning, Trump tweeted that CNBC had agreed to limit the Oct. 28 debate to two hours.
“Fantastic news for all, especially the millions of people who will be watching!” he wrote.

THE OUTSIDERS STILL LEAD THE GOP POLLS …
In the most recent CBS News poll, Donald Trump and Ben Carson continue to lead the polls in the the GOP presidential race. Try as the liberal and bias MSM might to knock down both Trump and Carson, they continue to be the two front-runners. Trump leads with 27% while Carson is second with 21%. Call them The Outsiders or The Odd Couple, Trump and Carson have tapped into the pulse of what is on the minds of Americans and upsetting them. Namely, anyone who is a politician and has their political power and aspirations ahead of We the People. Business Insiders makes an astute point, a key argument against taking Donald Trump’s candidacy seriously is evaporating before the so-called political pundits very eyes as according to this CBS poll, voters are stating that they are more interested in the race at this point than they were in the last election.
Donald Trump continues to lead the field nationally in the race to become the Republican nominee for president. Twenty-seven percent of Republican primary voters support Trump, giving him a six point lead over his closest competitor, neurosurgeon Ben Carson (21 percent).
The rest of the Republican field is in single digits, with Texas Senator Ted Cruz inching up into third place with nine percent, followed by Florida Sen. Marco Rubio with eight percent. Businesswoman Carly Fiorina and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush follow at six percent each. Former Governor Mike Huckabee has also slipped considerably since the summer, from eight percent in August to just two percent today.
When Republican voters are asked who would be their second choice for the nomination, Ben Carson (20 percent) and Marco Rubio (18 percent) are the most mentioned candidates.
Among Trump supporters, Carson is the top second choice, far ahead of any other candidate.
Seven in ten Republican primary voters would support Trump if he became the party’s eventual nominee, though many would have reservations. Twenty-nine percent would support Trump enthusiastically, while 42 percent would support him with reservations, and another eight percent would only support him because he is the party’s nominee. One in five Republican primary voters would not support Trump if he became the nominee.
Hispanic Woman Absolutely Goes GAGA Over Donald Trump in Las Vegas, NV … “I’m Hispanic and I Vote for Mr. Trump … We Love You!!!” (VIDEO)
MAYBE THE DONALD HAS THE HISPANIC VOTE AFTER ALL …
Check out the VIDEO below from GOP Presidential contender Donald Trump’s recent visit to Las Vegas where a rather interesting thing happened. Trump had a woman in the audience, 35 year old Myriam Witcher, come up on stage who was holding the People magazine edition that he was talking about and the rest is marketing history. Once on stage the women who said she was from Columbia yelled the words … “I’m Hispanic and I vote for Mr. Trump. We vote for Mr. Trump. YES, Mr. Trump, We Love You!!!”
When was the last time you saw any excitement like that for Hillary Clinton? If this was not a planned event, Trump’s handlers must have skipped a heartbeat. However, Trump claims to have never met her before. Damn, that was more risk taking than the GOP has done in the past 6 years.
The speech – which included a large dose of media bashing, the suggestion that Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl should have been executed for leaving his post in Afghanistan and the claim that he was behind Rep. Kevin McCarthy’s decision to drop out of the race for House speaker – was punctuated by shouts of support from the crowd.
At one point, in a moment that appeared to be impromptu, Trump brought a supporter in the audience to the stage who declared she is Hispanic and voting for Trump. Myriam Witcher, 35, of Las Vegas, waved an issue of People magazine with Trump and his family on its cover, asking him to sign it.
Afterward the Colombian immigrant, who noted she came to the United States legally, called Trump her “No. 1 person in the United States.”

ANOTHER DUST UP BETWEEN TRUMP AND FOX NEWS …
As reported at The Hill, Donald Trump has put a moratorium on Fox News interviews. Donald Trump took to Twitter and tweeted … @FoxNews has been treating me very unfairly & I have therefore decided that I won’t be doing any more Fox shows for the foreseeable future. In essence Basically Fox News called Trump “stale” and “tiresome”. Hmm really? As the BPR opines, those are two words not normally associated with the man who energized Republican primary politics this year. Sorry, love Trump or hate him … support him, like his brashness or think he is the worst thing in the world, it is obvious these days that FOX News has become like its competitors that they have railed against in the MSM for so long. FOX News has an agenda for establishment Republicans and the Carl Rove types.
GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump said Wednesday he will not appear on Fox News programs “for the foreseeable future,” claiming he was unfairly treated.
Trump did not detail the alleged unfair treatment.
But Fox News said the “boycott” followed its cancellation of an appearance by the outspoken real estate mogul on Bill O’Reilly’s show on Thursday.
“At 11:45 am today, we canceled Donald Trump’s scheduled appearance on The O’Reilly Factor on Thursday, which resulted in Mr. Trump’s subsequent tweet about his ‘boycott’ of FOX News,” a Fox News spokesperson said in a statement.
“The press predictably jumped to cover his tweet, creating yet another distraction from any real issues that Mr. Trump might be questioned about,” the statement continued.
“When coverage doesn’t go his way, he engages in personal attacks on our anchors and hosts, which has grown stale and tiresome. He doesn’t seem to grasp that candidates telling journalists what to ask is not how the media works in this country,” the spokesperson added.
Trump targeted O’Reilly in a series of tweets on Monday night, saying O’Reilly featured the “same old Trump haters.”

GOP Debate II: Donald Trump’s Best Liunes and Zingers of the CNN Republican Debate … “He (Obama) Just Doesn’t Have Courage, There is Something Missing From Our President.”
Republican GOP Debate on CNN …
It was the Donald Trump show once again as all of the other GOP candidates tried to knock The Donald off his perch. However, as usual Trump got off some zingers and lines that will be covered by the media in the post-debate analysis. Probably his best ones were pointed at Jeb Bush, especially when he said the following … “Your brother and your brother’s administration gave us Barack Obama.” Followed up with the disappointment with George W. Bush’s presidency made it impossible to elect a Republican to succeed him: “It was such a disaster those last three months that Abraham Lincoln couldn’t have been elected.”
Love him, hate him or if you are indifferent, Trump has a point.
Donald Trump did it again. After an explosive first debate in which Trump clashed with the moderators and stole the show, the bomb-throwing frontrunner came out swinging at the second Republican debate in Simi Valley, California, on Wednesday. He dissed Rand Paul (twice), put down George Pataki and hit Jeb Bush with a backhanded compliment. He also had plenty of praise — for himself and his business record.
Here are his 14 most quotable lines from the second Republican debate. (read here)
