What a whirlwind couple of days it has been for me. I am so thankful Fox News aired my video question during the prime time Republican presidential debate. I have to say it was VERY cool to see my video during the debate. CNN reports 24 million viewers tuned into the debate, making this debate the highest rated non-sports cable program.
Well, hello world.
I reviewed Senator Rubio’s response to my question after my initial excitement receded and found nothing objectionable in his response. The Senator followed up with a Twitter response to me as well.

This morning I had the pleasure to talk about this experience with Fox29Philly . It was a fantastic interview, I enjoyed chatting with Karen Hepp in studio. I want to take this opportunity to clear up a fumbled response when asked who are my favorite candidates at the moment. I have no clear standout candidate to support at the moment. However, I held back what I really wanted to say about Donald Trump, instead I mumbled something non-committal. That is an unacceptable response to the question. On the drive home, I berated myself for not saying what needed to be said. If I could have a do-over this is what I would say: “This election is not one of Donald Trump’s boardroom meetings, he does not get the final say. Voters have the last word on the fate of Donald Trump’s presidential aspiration. As a voter and as a woman, I am telling Donald Trump – you’re fired. Take your microphone and leave the stage.”

Whew, I feel better after posting my thoughts on ‘The Donald’. Now I can relax and go for a run, Reykjavík Half Marathon is only a few weeks away!
What are your thoughts on the debate and Trump’s comments towards Megan Kelly?
