The first Republican debate was a scream…literally! It started with a ridiculous jab at Donald Trump, followed by another one at Ben Carson. Just when I thought the whole thing would go down as a FOX debacle focused on destroying the non-politicians, it came alive!
Every candidate in the top ten, and Carly Fiorina from the lower tier of seven, shined in their own way. Though this format was predicted to short change the participants, because of the number and time constraints, each individual was showcased well.
There were many highlights, but my favorite was Trump’s Big Beautiful Door comment. When pressed hard on his stand on illegal immigration, Trump proclaimed that after building a big fence at our southern border, he would build a big beautiful door for immigrants to enter our great nation legally.
The night ended with final comments from each candidate. Dr. Carson’s was the most memorable. He reminded us that what is most needed in the next President of the United States is just a brain that’s being used properly.
