Trump's Campaign Manager Gave a Hilarious Non-Answer About How He Is Preparing for the Debates

Donald Trump's new campaign manager Kellyanne Conway has been hailed as the one person who can "tame Donald Trump," as "Real Time" host Bill Maher told Conway last Friday. So, when it comes to the long awaited presidential debate next week, will Trump be tame or simply repeat bizarre theatrics he used against his Republican competitors? 


According to The Washington Post on August 27:

Hillary Clinton is methodically preparing for the presidential debates as a veteran lawyer would approach her biggest trial. She pores over briefing books thick with policy arcana and opposition research. She internalizes tips from the most seasoned debate coaches in her party. And she rehearses, over and over again, to perfect the pacing and substance of her presentation. Donald Trump is taking a different approach. He summons his informal band of counselors — including former New York mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani, talk-radio host Laura Ingraham and ousted Fox News Channel chairman Roger Ailes — to his New Jersey golf course for Sunday chats. Over bacon cheeseburgers, hot dogs and glasses of Coca-Cola, they test out zingers and chew over ways to refine the Republican nominee’s pitch.

It's no wonder Fox News' chief political anchor Bret Baier pressed Conway for details on "The O'Reilly Factor" Tuesday night. 

"Let me ask you about debate prep. Specifically, what is happening?" Baier asked Conway after reminding her that the first presidential debate is less than a week away. 

"He's doing many things, he prepares all the time," Conway told Baier, sidestepping the question to praise Trump's performance during the Commander in Chief forum, while ironically dumping on Clinton, whom she believes gives too lengthy answers. 

"Mr. Trump takes the debate very seriously and he's preparing in his own way, as are we all," Conway insisted rather vaguely. She's not wrong about the last part; we are all bracing ourselves.
