Only Two Candidates Will Agree to Show Their Faces at the Donald Trump GOP Debate

Poor, poor Donald Trump. He wanted to be president, but it was not to be. Then he came up with a more modest goal: to moderate a GOP debate. But that isn't working out so well for him either.

Michele Bachmann Becomes Fifth GOP Candidate To Reject Donald Trump Debate

Michele Bachmann has officially said “no” to the Donald Trump-moderated Newsmax debate scheduled for later this month....

So, this leaves just two candidates — Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum — who plan to show up at the Dec. 27 event in Des Moines.

Mitt Romney, Jon Huntsman, Rick Perry, Ron Paul have all declined to attend. Perry became the latest to decline Trump’s invitation on Thursday.

He can't even get Bachmann, who's reportedly been seeking out a Trump endorsement. Harsh.
