“He doesn’t just say it and forget about it. Carly Fiorina, she’s a “yes” person”, Sorensen said. Trump said in an interview with Rolling Stone, which he later said was meant in reference to Fiorina’s “persona”. “Carly Fiorina is a waste of breath”.
John Curley: The victor was Carly, with 21 points.
“I thought I’d wait a couple of days before I expose her business failure”, Trump said. You gave her some attractive softballs.

Bush replied: “Ever-ready. It’s very high energy, Donald“. “We know our current president is one”.
TT: I feel sorry for Jeb… Interestingly, Jeb Bush is far down the list in this new Rasmussen poll.
