The eight of August is the first Republican debate(s). The primary debate will have the 10 greatest polling candidates, featuring “Mr.” Trump (a.k.a. “The Donald”). The “Happy Hour” debate will have the losers.
The pundits, the viewers and the political media are hoping for fireworks. Specifically they’re waiting for Trump to insult someone. The great fear is that he won’t and he’ll seem reasonable.
The kiddie-table debate may have more substance. Or it could be a mish-mash of the standard talking points.
Will someone have a great line? A great response? What word or phrase will be the most popular for drinking games?
Friday will be a good time for a White House media dump as the only political coverage will be of the debate.
