Donald Trump vs. Donald Trump is the 2016 GOP debate we’ve been waiting for

‘Right out of the gate there’s a strong difference of opinion between our one candidate.’

Stephen Colbert is giving the Internet the Donald Trump debate it deserves.

The Republican frontrunner stuck to his guns and skipped Thursday night’s debate after Fox News refused to sideline moderator Megyn Kelly and sent Trump a taunting statement. Although he held a rally for veterans at the same time, he was still the talk of the debate. But the people want what they want, so Colbert and his staff edited a Trump debate with the toughest person he knows: Donald Trump.

If there’s anyone in this election who could go up against himself in a debate, spew contradictory statements and opinions at at every question, and still rise in the polls, it’s Trump.
