Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump on Wednesday continued to bash CNN’s debate coverage and GOP rival former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush a day after the network’s Tuesday night debate. 

The real estate mogul appeared at his first campaign rally in Mesa, Ariz., since the last GOP debate of 2015, again suggesting he may not attend the next debate. 

“I’ll bet you they get big ratings,” Trump said at Wednesday’s rally about CNN. “I think next time I won’t do it,” adding “just to see it tank.”

Earlier this month, Trump had proposed only appearing at the debate if CNN paid him $5 million, which, he said, he would donate to wounded veterans. After CNN's president said the network would not pay, Trump reluctantly agreed to participate. 

At the rally, Trump contended that “last cycle, no network even wanted the debates” and that the debates used to be considered a “wasteland.”

CNN reported 18 million viewers watched Tuesday’s debate, the network’s third-most viewed debate this cycle. But Trump said he doesn’t benefit from the high ratings. “You know what I get out of it?” Trump said Wednesday. “Nothing.”

Are they 'games' - or, are they his way of 'stickin' it to the 'man'?  

Trump is a gift from God and Hillary is a test from Satan. What does that make liberals? I say they are disciples of Satan.

What a great speech!!! Trump does not have that phony rhetoric of liars and manipulators. He is the REAL DEAL! God Bless Donald Trump!

That would not be good for him to not do it, since he signed the Republican contract so he could be in the debates. And that contract will end up hanging him when they do to him what they did to Ron Paul to keep him off the ballot !!

Typical of a Communist system - everything done by CONTRACT !

Everything you do and have to sign for is You signing a CONTRACT !

Registrations, permits, licenses, all are UN-Constitutional CONTRACTS !

To be forced to sign a political CONTRACT is blackmail which is a CRIME !

Political Parties are  a CRIME since the Constitution gives no permission for them to exist and run everything !

CONTRACTS are for BUSINESS, And since DC is a Corporation and not a 'government' under a Constitution, they do everything by CONTRACT !

Gohmert: Dems Will Drag Out Impeachment — Try To Get ‘Best Socialist’ Nominated For President

During an appearance on Huntsville, AL radio’s WVNN on Thursday, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) offered his best assessment of what House Democrats were trying to accomplish with their impeachment efforts.

Gohmert told WVNN’s “The Jeff Poor Show” impeachment could tie up the Democratic Party’s presidential campaign efforts but predicted Democrats would use the occasion to nominate “the best socialist” they can.

“They would lose in the Senate,” Gohmert said on impeachment. “And besides that, the entire time it was on trial in the Senate, the Democrats who are running for president wouldn’t be allowed to campaign. That’s in the Constitution. They wouldn’t be able to campaign. I just can’t imagine them wanting to do that because if they send it to the Senate, they have now perfectly set up the scenario of 1996, where they will reassure Donald Trump is reelected as president. They don’t want to do that. They’re probably going to drag this thing out as long as they possibly can … through Iowa, through primaries — try to get the best socialist they can to be nominated.”

“Then just end up and say, ‘Now we’re close enough to the general election. We’ve thrown mud at the president through the House,’” he continued. “What they’re really doing — they’re using taxpayer funds to campaign against Trump. That’s all this is — a campaign fund that taxpayers are paying for in order to try to throw mud at the president. I’ll be surprised if they have that vote, but I can’t imagine they want to set up this president for reelection by having a trial in the Senate where they lose.”
