It’s not uncommon for candidates in a debate to play to the crowd in the hall with red meat. It’s not as common to see a candidate dissect why he’s getting booed.
Trump tried to quiet Bush during a rebuttal, pointing his finger to his mouth and even saying the word “quiet.”
“Boo,” the crowd roared.
“That’s all of his donors out there and special interests,” Trump said, saying that tickets to the debate hall went to those sympathetic to Bush.
“It’s who it is,” Trump said.
The boos continue.
“The RNC told us is we have all donors in the audience,” Trump said, explaining that “the reason” the crowd wasn’t cheering for him is he didn’t seek their donations.
Any guess how the crowd responded?
