MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell on Wednesday night time provided a damning evaluation of the third GOP presidential major debate in Miami, which once more wasn’t attended by front-runner Donald Trump.
O’Donnell first tore into Vivek Ramaswamy, calling the businessman “the MVP” of the controversy as a result of “he makes everybody else look higher than they have been ever going to look.” Ramaswamy is “not simply probably the most hated particular person by everybody on the stage, he’s probably the most hateable character who’s ever had a task in presidential debating in both get together,” he added.
“That is the controversy for in case Trump chokes on a cheeseburger,” O’Donnell continued. “That’s what this debate is. If by some means Trump falls out it’s going to be (Florida Gov. Ron) DeSantis or (former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki) Haley.”
Requested if Trump’s rivals have been “simply ready for him to die, go to jail or drop out” as a result of nobody actually attacked him in the course of the debate, O’Donnell famous how “fame is its personal forex now in politics, particularly in Republican politics as Trump proved.”
The anchor then advised the true intentions of every of Trump’s rivals.
Ramaswamy “is clearly operating for nothing however fame,” he mentioned.
Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie “must push up his fame to see if there could be more cash in some type of ABC contract after this,” he added.
Haley and DeSantis might imagine they’ve a shot on the White Home in 2028 and so are taking part in “credibly,” O’Donnell argued.
And Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) is “going to return to a quiet life after this,” he predicted. “He’s going to be a little bit extra well-known and that may assist him with a chat radio gig or one thing like that.”
