The next Republican presidential debate, hosted by Fox Business Network, will be held this Thursday in North Charleston, South Carolina. Fox has not yet announced it’s field of prime-time “debaters.” While the focus will be on economic, domestic and international policy issues, here are the questions I would ask the likely adult-table candidates:
Donald Trump – “Not much is known about your wife, Melania. How do you think your supporters, especially evangelicals, would react knowing that if you were elected, she would be the first First Lady to have posed nude?”
Ted Cruz – “Why does everyone hate you? Even your old college roommate, Craig Mazin, said,“I would rather have anybody else be the president of the United States. Anyone. I would rather pick somebody from the phone book.”
Ben Carson – “You have said God directed you to run for office. How was this communicated to you; in a dream, phone call or email?
Jeb Bush – “Do you regret not having listened to the words of your mother when her advice to you about running for president was: don’t?”
Marco Rubio – “It has been reported that while in elementary school, you were such a fan of the Osmonds that you formed a tribute singing group with your sister and cousin to entertain relatives. True?”
Chris Christie – “ You have been quoted as saying ‘Yes, I’m a Catholic and I believe in the teachings of the Church, but I’ve used birth control, and not just the rhythm method.’ Have you and Mary Pat used other types of birth control?”
While articles on this site are often satirical, my proposed questions for each of the candidates are based on actual, verifiable facts.
Sometimes it’s just enough to let the facts speak for themselves!
Breaking News – Fox has just announced the lineup for the upcoming debate. John Kasich has made the cut. The full slate of “debaters” will be: Trump, Cruz, Carson Rubio, Christie and Kasich.
Here is my Kasich question:
Kasich – “You’ve often mentioned, in speeches and interviews, you are a good friend of Bono. Would that be Sonny?”
