1. Did they fail? I don't know. Wait for the poll numbers.

Who knows with that fucking joke of a party what the hell they are thinking.

2. Newt Gingrich.

 

They did the same thing to him in 2012, not as obviously as they did it to Trump tonight thought. They knocked Trump out with the first question.

13. That entire field was chosen by the media:



Every couple of weeks they'd pump up one candidate then tear them down, like clockwork.

17. Yeah, the funny thing is that the only one who even had a chance in the general election was

Huntsman.

That is why the GOP primary is such a freak show - they have to placate their stupid, bigoted and proudly ignorant base to the point that the one who wins CANNOT win the general election.

4. He's beating them at their own game.

Their bias is so transparent. Softball questions to favored ones.

But I really think they tried to screw him, big time.

9. Correct me

but if the frontrunner is not a clear kingmaker favorite this always happens just in a less obvious way. What we have here is a failure to be subtle.

14. not in a debate format FROM the 'NEWS AGENCY'

They did the handraising question and then setup everyone with the question to go after Trump. To their credit, most of the candidates didn't follow FAUX's lead.

24. Their attempt to make Trump look weak, actually made Foxnews look weak and scared of Rump.

 

As usual, Foxnews gets it wrong and helps the person they wanted to get rid of most. TYPICAL.
