Krauthammer Slams Trump: It’s A ‘Competition Between His Narcissism And His Cattiness’

Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer slammed Donald Trump, arguing his skipping of the Fox News debate is “a competition between his narcissism and his cattiness.”

Appearing on Fox News’s “Special Report” with Bret Baier on Wednesday, Krauthammer concluded that Trump’s “narcissism,” would win, thus preventing him from showing up to Thursday’s Fox News debate. (RELATED: Trump Backs Out Of Fox News Debate [VIDEO])

Krauthammer said that Trump has “gotten what he wants, which is blanket wall-to-wall coverage of him, wiping out everything else going up to the debate. That I think was well played.” (RELATED: Rush Limbaugh: Trump Is ‘Controlling The Media’ [AUDIO])

However, Trump “loses if he doesn’t show up [to the debate]. He needs to find some honorable way out,” Krauthammer said. “Make big donations to the vets and challenge Fox to match it. And say if they do that, he’ll show up.”

“I think snubbing Iowa, where they take their politics really personally. And also, not having a good reason,” Krauthammer argued. Suggesting that there are too many debate is “not a reason for standing up America, Iowa, and the other candidates when you have accepted and were listed on the list. So, I think — this is a competition between his narcissism and his cattiness. And I think I would guess his narcissism, meaning staying out, is going to win over.” (RELATED: Campaign Manager: Megyn Kelly ‘Completely Obsessed’ With Trump [VIDEO])
