GOP Candidates Battle CNBC Anchors, As Audience Boos Multiple Times

Wednesday at CNBC’s Republican presidential debate, the anchors and candidates battled with the blusterous booing audience in heavy support of the candidates.

It started when CNBC chief Washington correspondent John Harwood asked Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, “Is this a comic book version of the president?”

Then Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) scolded the anchors of the debate for asking only inflammatory questions, saying, “Nobody believes that the moderators have any intention of voting in a Republican primary.”

Candidate Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) dubbed the mainstream media Democratic presidential candidate former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s super PAC

Then both moderators, John Harwood and Carl Quintanilla, were loudly booed while questioning Dr. Ben Carson,  Mike Huckabee and Donald Trump.
