Trump: Americans are losers
Raddatz: Donald Trump is the
star attraction at the fair!
Raddatz: I got to ride in his helicopter!
Raddatz: other people who
have led in polls lost
Trump those people were losers
Trump: I would do well with foreign
leaders because people love me
Raddatz: what would do about ISIS?
Trump: go in wipe them out
Trump: Hillary is a loser!
Raddatz: what about Carly Fiorina?
Trump: she's a loser and she
got fired but other than that she's nice
Santorum: who can relate
to the common man more –
a billionaire or an unemployed
sexually repressed hamburger flipper?
Raddatz: you didn't bring your helicopter
Sanders: I left it at home
Raddatz: why do people
love you and hate Hillary

of establishment politicians

Raddatz: Trump is the clear
front-runner but just behind
is doctor Ben Carson
Raddatz: what's up doc
Carson: thanks for having me
Raddatz: you are successful surgeon
Carson: I'm not the smartest person
but I use the talent pool around me
Raddatz: Trump said you can't
be elected because Obama is
a failure and he's black like you are
Carson: he's too focused
on the color of a person's skin
Raddatz: you say Planned Parenthood
wants to kill all black people
Carson: that's right - because
Margaret Sanger believed in eugenics
Raddatz: ok but what you think
Planned Parenthood wants to do now
Carson: Planned Parenthood
wants to commit genocide obviously
Raddatz: can you prove that?
Carson: Sanger was a racist!
Raddatz: what about abortion?
Carson: conception is a
human life-creating event
Raddatz: life begins at conception?
Carson: yes I believe that
Raddatz: I thought said
life begins at the heartbeat
Carson: who can deny that
anything with a heart beat
is a living organism
Raddatz: so you would have
no exceptions to allow for abortion?
Carson: I can't answer that
Raddatz: okay let's move on
Raddatz: how do you defeat ISIS?
Carson: provide leadership
Carson: we have to initially invade
then we'll get other countries on board
Raddatz: how many U.S. troops? 100,000?
Carson: I don't pretend
to know things like that

Raddatz: welcome Carly
Fiornia: welcome to Illinois Martha
Trump: I can't criticize Carly
because she's a woman!
Raddatz: what's your reaction
to the Trump saying that?
Fiorina: insults are not helpful
like when Obama is mean
Raddatz: is Trump alienating women?
Fiorina: everyone is sick
of the professional class
Fiorina: we have to secure our borders!
Raddatz: you bash Hillary for playing
the gender card but you do the same thing
Fiorina: well half the nation are
women and we should elect a
woman just me and not her
Raddatz: why is that?
Fiorina: because conservative policies
work better except for the recessions
and wars and terror attacks
Raddatz: what about Hillary's e-mails?
Fiorina: Hillary lied about Benghazi
and lied about her e-mails and Obama is mean
Raddatz: I see
Fiorina: and of course she passed
on classified information to the
enemy because of course she did
Raddatz: you Hillary Clinton
has blood on her hands
Fiorina: yes because she talked
about a video the next day after Benghazi
Raddatz: how is that having
blood on her hands?
Fiorina: she apologized to terrorists
which means there is open season
to murder Americans and also Obama is mean
Raddatz: what would you have done in Libya?
Fiorina: Obama is terrible because
he saved lives by intervening in
Libya but not in Syria
Raddatz: well he went into Libya
and Republicans turned four
Americans killed into the biggest
scandal of all time and said he
had blood on his hands
Fiorina: right – it's terrible!
Raddatz: so we shouldn't have
gone into Libya but we must pour
troops into Syria and Iraq
Raddatz: but more than four
Americans would surely be killed
– would you then have blood on your hands?
Fiorina: the dictator of Jordan
happens to be a good friend of mine
Raddatz: that's very nice
Fiorina: we need to invade Syria!
Raddatz: okay okay
Fiorina: also we need to
re-invade Iraq to defeat ISIS!
Raddatz: thanks for coming Carly

giving helicopter rides
Raddatz: why is the Donald
Trump so darn popular??
Dowd: why do you like the Trump?

about the issues – I really like that

- it's fun
Dowd: what worries you?
Voter: he might be insane
Dowd: he's also a bully
Voter: no that doesn't bother me at all
Voter: Megyn Kelly is mean
Dowd: why the hell do you
all idiots like Trump?!?
Voter: it's a gut feeling
Voter: something in my
lizard brain tells me he should
control our nuclear weapons
Raddatz: why Trump? Why??
Dowd: it's his personality
Dowd: it's all gut – no head
Dowd: the things pundits said
would destroy him – the racism,
the sexism, stupidity, name calling
– they all help!
Raddatz: the pundits were wrong?
