There’s No Business Like Show Business

Bring in the clowns:

It’s officially a reality television Republican primary now.

Donald Trump is pairing up with Newsmax, the conservative magazine and news Web site, to moderate a presidential debate in Des Moines on Dec. 27.

“Our readers and the grass roots really love Trump,” said Christopher Ruddy, chief executive of Newsmax Media. “They may not agree with him on everything, but they don’t see him as owned by the Washington establishment, the media establishment.”

Oh yeah, a real man of the people.

Jon Huntsman won’t be there. His press person’s response was an Internet shorthand for laughing out loud:

“Lol. We look forward to watching Mitt and Newt suck-up to The Donald with a big bowl of popcorn,” he said in an email to Business Insider.

Huntsman declined to meet with Trump at his New York offices, his campaign said, though Trump said last month that it was he who declined to meet Huntsman.

But Huntsman has agreed to debate Newt Gingrich one-on-one later this month. Now that should be interesting.
