On his show tonight Mark Levin said that Donald Trump skipping the debate has never been about a battle between him and Fox, despite what everyone is saying. Even Trump, himself, says this is about Fox News.
But Levin says it’s not and everyone has missed the real reason he’s done it.
Here’s a snippet:
Trump made a calculated political decision. Even his supporters don’t give him credit for being smart enough. He made a calculated political decision, not to avoid Megyn Kelly, but to avoid the debate format where he might be the target, when the polls show him leading in Iowa just days before the caucus.
He’s where he wants to be, he believes and his campaign believes. Why go up there and duke it out with Cruz or Rubio or anybody else? Why be the target?
So you get out of that environment and then Cruz is the target.
This was never a fight between Fox and Trump. All the analysts have missed it. All the commentators have missed it. It’s ‘how brilliant’, ‘he’s controlling the media’…no he’s controlling you! He’s marketing himself. He’s branding himself. So he’s stepping out of that environment, it’s too risky, with just a few days to go.
And the people of Iowa have to decide if they want to be treated like that or not, or disrespected, or if they think this is a brilliant political move.
But this isn’t a fight between Fox and Trump.
