In the transcripts from the FOX debate that have been released thus far, the exchange where Megyn Kelly asks Jeb Bush about his service on the Bloomberg Foundation at a time when it supported Planned Parenthood has been scrubbed.

Probably got their marching orders from Koch brothers and company who also probably told Fox to take Trump out during the debate.

I wonder if the establishment would support Trump if he were to win the nomination or would they rather have Clinton?

They would just make another 11 o'clock decision to disqualify him on some obscure technicality for not "kissing the ring". And then.. surprise! Jeb steps in. I really hope Trump makes it far... we're going to see some heads explode on both sides of the aisle. The man can't be bought, which scares the bejesus out of the elites on the right AND left.

I'd be less surprised to see a hit put out on Trump or at least a threat against him or his family which causes him to bow out willfully.

They've made it perfectly clear for years now that the Republican base is their enemy.

Guys like him have ex-SEALS and SAS as bodyguards as a matter of course. The Secret Service protection as presidential candidate gets is a step up from that admittedly but mainly because they have more resources to gather intelligence on possible threats.

I have thought the same thing.
Big business and big money may feel they can't defeat him, so they may pull a "Jimmy Hoffa" once again.
