Other GOP debate, Trump, from www.caglecartoons.com # 168877By David A, Fahrenthold

The second Republican debate, a three-hour affair that veered from sophomoric insults to policy to late-night silliness, ended after 11 p.m. Wednesday, with an outsider candidate — former tech executive Carly Fiorina — challenging front-runner Donald Trump in a way few rivals have.

Fiorina, who hadn’t even been on the main stage for the August debate, jabbed Trump for his insults of her appearance, and for his record as a businessman. She pointed out that Trump had lost money in his famous Atlantic City casinos. “You ran up mountains of debt, as well as losses, using other people’s money,” Fiorina said. “Why should we trust you to manage the finances of this nation.”

Still, Trump dominated the night’s conversation — with other candidates often asked to react to things he’d said. He finished off in typical Trump fashion, promising in essence to give Americans more of everything they want.

“We will make this country greater than ever before. We’ll have more jobs. We’ll have more of everything,” Trump said in his closing statement.

This CNN debate, at times, seemed to borrow a slogan from Christie’s own campaign: When it was over, there would be nothing left unsaid between them.    (my emphasis)
