    Sign me up as a supporter of an RNC debate on OANN! Love watching OANN and AWE. Thanks to the hard-working reporters and staffs for keeping neutral on their reporting. Takes me back to the days of Walter Kronkite. Guess I’m showing my age…

  2. My relatives every time say that I am killing my time here
    att net, except I know I am getting knowledge all the time by reading
    sich good articles.

  7. I like to see Trump become president with Carson or Herman Cain as his running mate. Regarding the debates I wouldn’t mind seeing Rush Limbaugh conducting them.

  8. Chickenbreast | October 30, 2015 at 5:27 pm |

    Trump has been staying this from the start. Now everyone is following .now we are on the same page. Its about time you could join us. Trump2016

  9. Donald Trump is a political Spartacus and so are We. We have our warrior, they need to pick theirs. No Do Overs this time. One choice: We or Them? Donald Trump/and who He picks for VP. We wouldn’t have it any other way.

  10. Much better format for a DEBATE is Lincoln -Douglas format. NO moderator..

  11. I like the fact that no matter how much they attack Donald Trump, people love even more. So sick of the Establishment! #TrumpforPresident

  12. I thought the republicans were just old white men. Compared to the democrats, republicans are the party of inclusion.

  13. Trump is the only one that has the experience and the ability to change this country and make it great again

  14. In my opinion, GOP tickets goes to Trump/Rubio or may be Trump/Carson only chance to win the presidency.

    Who, besides me, would like to see OANN host a GOP debate moderated by Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin and other conservatives?

  16. Trump to the White-house!!!!


  18. I have been watching your RNC presidential primary process and debates from Canada. I noticed that the attacks on Mr. Trump are endless. The first FOX debate was just vicious but he survived. The second debate by CNN took the FOX que and tried to destroy him as well. Then CNBC figured they could follow the other two. Their only network miss calculation was they tried to attack not just Mr. Trump but the RNC favourites. As a result FOX and CNN has taken CNBC to task for not focusing on Mr Trump. FOX and CNN should go back and review what their moderators did in comparison. I think CNBC was less vitral in comparison. All three moderators should be ashamed on all 3 networks.

  19. I am so proud to be supporting such a wonderful person … DONALD J TRUMP FOR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!
