Trump was frustrated with the format, including there was no set time for the debate. Earlier, in the second GOP debate hosted by CNN, the network went for a money grab and stretched the debate out to 3 hours.
Trump said CNBC's debate had to be no more than two hours or he wasn't showing up.
Without Trump, CNBC knew the ratings would suffer, we wrote, "In other words, look for CNBC to change their debate plans to make sure Trump shows up. "
Well guess what?
Yep, CNBC caved to Trump's demands and showed once again when it comes to the cable news networks, Donald Trump runs them all.
Sad, isn't it?
