The RNC Chair, Reince Priebus, is now saying that Trump’s debate prep was 14 season finales of a cheesy reality TV show. And yes, I’m serious.
On Monday, ahead of the first 2016 Presidential debate, Reince Priebus went on CNN and told Wolf Blitzer that Donald Trump was completely prepared for Monday night’s debate. Apparently Trump and his surrogates believe that he got all the debate preparation he needed from filming 14 season finales of The Apprentice.
Blitzer made note of the fact that Trump doesn’t like doing mock debates. And when he asked Priebus how Trump has been preparing, Priebus said that Trump’s been studying and meeting with his trusted advisers. And just for some perspective here, let’s not forget that Trump’s “trusted advisers” include people like Chris Christie, Rudy Giuliani, and Trump’s own brain.
“He’s very comfortable. He did a great job in our primary debates,” Priebus said. “He’s also been through what…14 seasons of season finales. He will be prepared. He’s always shown up for the big dance.”
Bloomberg and Politifact will be fact-checking the debate in real time. Although I’m not so sure they can fact-check as fast as Trump lies.
Expectations for Trump are very low. In fact, the bar for him has been set so low that it’s touching the ground. Basically here’s what the candidates will have to do tonight to win the debate…
Answer all of the questions but don’t be too lecture-y….don’t yell…..don’t talk too soft…..don’t be too smart….don’t be defensive….don’t be aggressive….don’t cough….be charming….don’t laugh…..smile more….but don’t smile too much….be more likable…..but don’t make it look like you’re trying too hard….talk about your policies…but don’t get too detailed…..don’t act too girly….don’t be too tough….tell the truth…but don’t act like you know it all….act trustworthy….and whatever you do, don’t make any mistakes or tell any lies.
Stand there like you’re an adult and try not to drool on yourself or talk about your dick.
And so tonight we are literally going to watch a respected Secretary of State debate an unstable reality TV star.
For President of the free world.
The Twilight Zone is our new reality.
