BREAKING: Trump LIVID After Debate Commission Makes BIG Rule Change To Stop Him (DETAILS)

The Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) has made a change to the debate night protocol just hours ahead of the final of three presidential debates held before the general election, and the rule change significantly undercuts one of alleged unregistered sex offender and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s key debate night strategies.



With Trump flagrantly announcing his plans before the start of the second debate, the CPD had the opportunity to intervene in order to prevent such a “potentially humiliating and excruciating encounter,” as the New York Times put it.

Now, hours before the final debate, the CPD has acted at the urging of the Hillary Clinton campaign to prevent such a situation from occurring.


As the New York Times writes:

‘[T]he Clinton side is not taking any chances at the final presidential debate, on Wednesday night in Las Vegas, and has apparently gained approval of a different protocol for the entry of the candidates’ spouses and families into the debate hall. The new arrangement calls for the candidates’ spouses to enter the hall closer to their seats, rather than crossing the room, and each other’s paths. That would avoid any potential for confrontations, given Mr. Trump’s penchant for dramatic stunts.’

He just can't catch a break.

And also, in 2020, I want the rules changed so that candidates can only invite immediate family. There's no need for any of this nonsense.

Do that before except briefly before the debated started/ but during the debate to cut to the audience? That was disturbing. Stop giving that man free campaign ads.

18. I think it was his dart board approach of who he invited tonight.

He is doublinng down on his games. I wonder just how many people each candidate is allowed to bring. I think that is something that needs to change in the future.

I am really wondering if one or more of them plan on acting out during the debate.

What's not to trust?

I suspect the overall story of the seating and entry points is true, but I have a hard time believing he's any more angry than usual.

39. what a lowlife scoundrel this man is

I can't believe that he will actually get more than 40% of the vote. I'm no attorney but it seems to me that he is breaking our laws against slander, fraud, and probably numerous other criminal acts. And we can't touch him because he is a candidate. We need to improve our legal system to be able protect us from characters like him in the future.

44. Although it would have brought her down to his level

I think Hilary should have invited Alec Baldwin to the debate to show up in full Trump costume. Give him a seat in the front row on Donald's side and just have him sit there, purse his lips at Donald and squint at him non-stop the entire debate to see how long until he cracked.

I'm not sure what Trump was hoping for with his guests this time around, but this decision by the CPD plus the more formal format of the debate probably kept him from whatever he was going to try. He did get in one shot with the Benghazi mother, but since the cameras didn't turn to look at her, it was a blip. He probably thought he'd be able to do something like he did in the second debate, which just shows more stupidity on his part.
