SAN FRANCISCO, California (The Adobo Chronicles, San Francisco Bureau) – Long before the Republican presidential field narrowed down to the last three candidates standing, The Adobo Chonicles reported on a short-lived affair between Senator Ted Cruz and Carly Fiorina. Back then, we predicted that if Cruz becomes the GOP presidential nominee, he would appoint Carly Fiorina as his VP running mate.
MIAMI, Florida (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – Marco Rubio said Thursday that he plans to leave the government after the end of his Senate term, and that he’s not interested in being anyone’s Vice President.
“I’m not going to be Vice President,” the Florida Senator told reporters Thursday. “I’m not running for governor of Florida, I’m going to finish out my term in the Senate over the next 10 months… and then I’ll be a private citizen.
By “private citizen,” Rubio means a citizen of Cuba.
“I’m done with the American Dream,” he said, “if American voters, especially the Republicans, don’t want me, then I’m going back to my land of heritage.
The senator, in a very unusual gesture, thanked President Barack Obama for re-opening diplomatic relations with Cuba. “He knows exactly what he’s doing. This will make my transition from American senator to private Cuban citizen much eaiser,” he said.
DES MOINES, Iowa (The Adobo Chronicles ) – A new Gallup poll conducted minutes after Donald Trump confirmed he would not be participating in the GOP presidential debate in Iowa already shows a winner : FOX News.
Trump’s refusal to join his Republican colleagues Thursday night was prompted by accusations that FOX News was biased against him, especially news anchor and debate moderator Megyn Kelly.
Of those polled, 98 percent said they would be watching a Trump-less debate, compared with only 16 percent who would be watching if Trump were among the candidates on stage in Des Moines.
Ever since Trump announced his presidential bid, FOX News ratings have consistently plummeted because viewers didn’t want to hear any news about the billionare candidate or his stupid ideas. Television news audiences — Republicans included — have been turning to ‘The Daily Show’ With Trevor Noah which has been airing endless segments making fun of Trump.
Tomorrow’s debate could significantly bring back FOX News loyal viewers who have strayed away. And then some.
