Conservative icon and highly rated radio host Laura Ingraham says she may role play the part of Hillary Clinton during debate practice for Donald Trump.
Laura Ingraham has been one of the few conservative talk show hosts who was a Trump supporter from the beginning, and has stayed loyal to his campaign ever since.
The Hill reports that Ingraham along with Rudy Giuliani are in talks with Donald Trump to help prepare him for his first debate with challenger Hillary Clinton, which will take place in less than a month.
Trump has been anything but predictable and conventional during this election year; and this unique way of practicing for a historic debate, which is sure to break some viewing records, could give him a distinct advantage over the highly scripted Hillary Clinton.
Although the Clinton campaign has said they are preparing for their first debate as well, specifically for Trump’s unpredictable nature, how do prepare a candidate who is so use to reading a script off a teleprompter? A candidate that has yet to hold an open press conference this year and seems to avoid unscripted questions whenever she can.
In fact, just the other day Hillary Clinton avoided questions from the press by offering the reporters chocolates.
The Hill reports:
Conservative radio host Laura Ingraham may play the role of Hillary Clinton in Donald Trump’s prerpation for the upcoming presidential debates, according to the Washington Post.Trump is meeting with Ingraham, former Fox News Channel chairman Roger Ailes, and former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani to talk over possible debate preparation strategies, the Post reported.Some top officials within the campaign have hinted at an unconventional debate prep strategy.“He’s an unconventional candidate, so debate prep in the classic sense doesn’t apply to him,” campaign manager Kellyanne Conway told the Post.“That applies to the accoutrements that are usually associated with getting ready for debates: contrived gestures, lecterns, a group of consultants in belted khakis holed up in a cabin, the Socratic method of peppering questions. That’s not him,” she added.“Donald Trump is the unpredictable X-factor and Hillary Clinton is the scripted statist. I fully understand why Team Clinton feels the need to drown her in briefing books and Hollywood consulting.”Giuliani said Trump will simply try to be himself during the debates, and avoid the risk of being someone he is not.“You’re going to see a very natural and normal guy — someone who is comfortable with who he is, not someone who’s highly scripted or nervous,” he said.“The real risk is when a guy tries to be something other than what he is.”Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon told the Post that the Democratic presidential nominee is preparing for Trump’s unpredictability.“I think [Clinton] will approach the debate with a great deal of seriousness and a sense of purpose, and also keenly aware that Donald Trump is capable of anything,” he said.The first debate will take place in Hofstra University outside New York City on Sept. 26. It is likely to be one of the highest rated television events of the year.The nominees debate twice more in October.
