Trump called the Fox moderators elegant in at least 5 post debate interviews. He never wavered from that word to describe the debate.

Look at some of the other words he could have used.

Elegant Synonyms, Elegant Antonyms | Thesaurus.com

Some on the list include stuffy, overdone, genteel, etc.

Well, they sure didn't ask any follow up questions. Rand Paul had to remind everyone that China wasn't part of TPP as Trump was going on and on about it because they moderators didn't bother.

At the previous debate fantasy sports was asked of Christie by CNBC. He jumped on them big time for wasting time asking such a question. And they asked it in the last half hour of the debate when it should have been a time for serious questions.

I think they asked Jeb Bush. Christie commented after Bush.

We do think the Fox moderators in this past debate were excellent.

I think they were excellent because 2 out of 3 are of Italian descent. They didn't want post-debate agita.

I agree that overall this debate was the most professional of them all.

But, I think the moderators went too far in trying to keep things . . calm. When a candidate states an untruth - it should be their role to point that out.

They had opportunities and they failed. Rand Paul had to do their job.
