Final Note

Donald Trump to moderate debate

This final note today, which, I hadn’t read it in the New York Times, I wouldn’t have believed.

But here you go: Donald Trump — yes, that Donald Trump — is going to moderate a Republican presidential debate on December 27th.

It’ll be a partnership with Newsmax, the conservative magazine and news website.

I just don’t know what to say. I really don’t.
