Fox News political contributor Ed Rollins appeared on Studio B and told host Shepard Smith he was wary of the controversial Donald Trump debate scheduled for December 27, and was skeptical it would even happen. “He’s played in this game, he’s talked about running, he even talked yesterday about if we don’t have a strong enough candidate next May when his contract is up he may run. I think he disqualifies himself for that. This is not a reality show. This is a serious effort to choose a presidential candidate and the media ought to be totally involved in that.”
“It’s your sense though that that debate will not happen?” questioned Smith.
While Rollins didn’t exactly come out and say that he didn’t expect the debate to be canceled, it was clear from his derisive tone that he had low expectations that a Donald Trump moderated GOP debate would be a fully attended or seriously considered political affair.
“What I hear is Perry, Romney, Mrs. Bachmann, the only one who has accepted as this point is Gingrich at this point in time,” Rollins replied.
