Donald Trump: Hey, Skipping That Last Debate In Iowa Might Have Hurt Me

I hear FoxNews, especially Megyn Kelly, pretty much bragging about this fact, which is pretty unfortunate, given that Fox News' own baiting, unprofessional press release is what caused Trump to pull the plug.

Rather than expressing any sort of chagrin about their own actions, the Foxies are exulting in how they can throw their weight around and influence political contests -- you know, just like a Real News Organization does.

Anyway, Trump is now musing about his own possible error. I don't expect the Foxies to do similarly.

Despite leading in most of the pre-caucus polls, the real estate billionaire finished second behind Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and barely held off Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, who placed a close third.

"That could've been with the debate," Trump told reporters at a rally in Milford, N.H. "I think some people were disappointed that I didn't go into the debate."

...

Instead of participating in the debate, Trump held a fundraiser for veterans that raised $6 million. The candidate said Tuesday that he would make the same decision again, saying he "would never, ever give that up to go between first and second in Iowa."

Anyway, it's all too much watching Megyn Kelly nearly giggling on the impact she's had on the race, in between boosting Marco Rubio.
