It's a Reality Show

Donald Trump is teaming up with Newsmax to moderate a presidential debate in Des Moines, Iowa on December 27, the New York Times reports.

The debate will be broadcast on the cable network Ion Television and "is sure to be one of the more memorable moments in a primary season that has already delivered its fair share of circus-like spectacle."

Dan Amira: "This actually seems like a pickle for the serious candidates in the GOP field. Do you attend and risk tainting your gravitas among moderates by answering insane questions from a birther reality TV star? Or do you beg off but risk alienating the GOP base, which reads Newsmax and for some reason doesn't realize how much of a joke Trump has become?"
