No CNN will not pay Donald Trump 5 million dollars to attend the next debate.

Courtesy of Variety: 

CNN will not give $5 million to charity to ensure Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump appears on the Republican debate set to air on the Time Warner-owned cable-news outlet on December 15, the network’s top executive said Thursday. 

“No,” said CNN Worldwide President Jeff Zucker, responding to a question about a demand from Trump that CNN donate $5 million to charity or face the chance the candidate might boycott the event. “We do not pay candidates to appear” on the network. Zucker made his comments at an event held by the Paley Center for Media, as part of a wide-ranging interview with Ben Smith, editor in chief of digital outlet BuzzFeed.

I hope that Trump does boycott the debate.

But of course we know that will never happen.

His massive ego would not allow it.

      Also, less tanning bed or bronzer, which matched his Halloween head and caused the white-ring-around-his-eyes from an eye shield used in the application of the tan.
      Now he looks more like the pallid, overweight, old man that he is.

    So Trump is so afraid of CNN that he will pretend he never made his demands? Or will it be that CNN hates veterans, so Trump will now grace the debate with his YUUGGE presence to point out the error of their ways? Donnie Trump is a LOSER. Yesterday, today and tomorrow. And so is Stupid Sarah, "Christian Cruz," and Ridiculous Rubio. What a bunch of whiners with no positive ideas, no redeeming qualities, and no clue how the world works. They are bullies and con artists. No one has to love Hillary Clinton, but they have to admit that she is head and shoulders above the GOP Clown Bus.

    1. He'll make it all about CNN refusing to support Vets.

      Because, like all Republicans, he can't admit he was wrong, made a mistake or apologize.

  4. I think he's bleaching his hair white -- he got offended by all the orangutang jokes. Among his many faults, having no sense of humor is right up there.

    It was unclear just how the money was to be distributed: to Trump, or a Trump organization, clearly one that pays taxes and then could give the money (or so it will claim) to a veterans' group, while taking a tax deduction.
    Trump would really mean to help the vets if he'd told CNN to donate the money directly.
    There was always something for Donald in that demand, and maybe he shied away from the three-card monte aspect of who got the money first.

      Yup. Trump wants a tax deduction from someone else's money. How cheap can he get?

      Except that he'd have to claim the $5 million as income as well. No this was Chump verbal diarrhea once again. Should be fun to see how he weasels out of this one.

    3. "weasels" = lies his way out of it. "I never demanded $5 million -- where did I say that!?" It's on video -- the video is doctored; the media is retarded. Blah, blah.

  6. The newest info is that someone traced Rubio's finances and discovered that he has been having an affair with a lobbyist. It is expected to break in the news within the next few days

    The best thing The Donald could do for the majority of Americans, is NOT show up for the debate. Trust me, he would not be missed!

    And, he actually thought CNN would pay that amount of money for him to appear? What an ego! He has no place in leading our country and will never be elected to do so!

    Most especially - thank you, President Obama for doing such an outstanding job as POTUS! You are going to be difficult to replace.

    And the GOP is telling US Senators and candidates running for US Senate positions to start sounding like Donald Trump. Just what this country needs - a Senate majority of Donald Trump wannabes. it's important, folks, to vote a straight Democratic ticket in 2016. Things must change - for the better - in Congress and no American can afford a Republican in the White House.

      And, Republicans (in U.S. Congress) voted AGAINST Obamacare for the umpteenth time! They are friggin' idiots! They would want to put the millions of folks already covered to go without? They do NOT represent the majority of American people - look at the polls!

      Do they really think they are going to get the votes of those insured voters If they are up for reelection?

      President Obama would have vetoed them were it to have gotten completely through and put on his desk! They do nothing but waste taxpayer's money and look like idiots!

      Any Republican will NEVER get my vote on the national, state or local levels. They have screwed their party royally and will not be seated in the White House for many years to come!

    2. "Do they really think they are going to get the votes of those insured voters If they are up for reelection?"

      No, the GOP actions are subconsciously suicidal, IMHO.
      Keep it up your inhumane talk and actions for a year, you guys, and there will no group left to vote Republican except the KKK and their ilk.

  11. He's provided himself with an alibi for not participating. The debates expose his lack of real knowledge or understanding, expose him as an ignorant, noxious blowhard. He's smart enough to stay away from real questions that require real informed, intelligent answers.

      I watched most of it, before it froze. Her answers, especially about the "cancer" are very telling. You can almost see her thought process. She starts to downplay it, but doesn't want to lose the drama and almost says it was an office procedure, but decides to drop that.
      I love how she gets her spiteful agenda into the conversation. The part about none of McCain's people wanting to pray for her victory before taking the stage to debate Biden-those godless staffers! By the way, God didn't give her that victory, did he?
