Donald Trump and Ben Carson’s successful demand that CNBC’s Oct. 28 Republican primary debate be limited to two hours shafts viewers who want to hear more because they haven’t made up their minds. Or anyone else who wants to watch.
The two frontrunners in the pre-convention polls asserted that they were doing viewers a favor because who wants to watch more than three hours of debate.
I’d expect such transparent lunacy from Donald Trump because just about everything that comes out of his mouth is stupid. That Carson joined in this ridiculous demand is surprising. And reveals that Carson either isn’t as smart as he appears or is too likely to follow ridiculous advice.
Will someone explain to these two that viewers that don’t want to watch more than two hours can simply turn off the damn thing.
