RNC Chairman Reince Priebus criticized CNBC for asking “one gotcha question, one personal low blow after the other” after Wednesday’s GOP presidential debates.
Priebus said, “I was proud of our candidates for standing up to a pretty hostile environment. I was very disappointed in the moderators. I’m disappointed in CNBC. You know, I thought maybe they would bring forward a pretty fair forum here tonight, but I think it was one gotcha question, one personal low blow after the other. It’s almost like they tried to design a Rubik’s Cube for every question, to take the worst element, I think, of what moderators and what the media should bring to the table, and all I can tell you is that while I’m proud of our candidates for pretty much sticking together, I’m very disappointed in the moderators, and I’m very disappointed with CNBC.”
