It was so-so; wasn’t quite the wrestling match I was expecting, but still mildly entertaining.
As expected, Trump got most of the airtime between all the candidates, by far. Sadly, the most libertarian candidate, the one I’d hate the least if he was elected, Rand Paul, got the least amount of time. Not surprising; both the modern-day left and right hate small government.
My guess at this point is still that Jeb Bush will win the Republican primaries, making the Bush vs Clinton election the elites want for us, and then Hillary will end up being president. (I could be wrong; like I said, I can’t predict US presidential elections like I used to).
I don’t think Trump wants to be president. I still think this is a branding / exposure play to boost up his income and fame.
Which has worked.
