On the Donald Trump/Megyn Kelly “interview”:
“The format was a departure for Kelly, with softer questions that focused less on policy and more on personality. And some media critics were not pleased, clearly yearning for the Kelly who grilled Trump at the presidential debates.
“If it had been any softer, it would come on a cone (with) a swirl,”tweeted television critic Bill Carter.”
This is well worth the thirteen plus minutes it takes to view it.
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said in an interview Sunday that presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump will “have to answer” for the reports about his behavior toward women.“I also think there are things from many years ago and I think that, you know, as Christians, judging each other I think is — is problematic,” Priebus said on ABC’s “This Week.”

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said that he wasn’t committed to some of his most controversial policy positions.
Calling into “Fox & Friends,” Trump was asked by co-host Brian Kilmeade about saying his proposed ban on Muslims entering the country was “just a suggestion” earlier this week.
“Yeah. It was a suggestion,” Trump said. “Look, anything I say right now — I’m not the president — everything is a suggestion, no matter what you say, it’s a suggestion.”
“Hillary Clinton may be a more qualified presidential candidate than Donald Trump “on paper,” former Vice President Dan Quayle said Thursday. But Trump is more qualified in another respect, the Indiana Republican suggested.
“He’s more qualified in the sense that the American people, I think, want an outsider,” Quayle said in an interview with NBC’s “Today,” remarking that he would support him as the Republican Party’s nominee. “And they want an outsider this time. She’s not an outsider, so if you’re looking for an outsider, no, she’s not qualified, and he is.”
