“Yes, Prime Minister” on Last Night’s Debate


“This is how you deal with questions. If you have nothing to say, say nothing. Better still, have something to say and say it, no matter what they ask. Pay no attention to the question. Just make your own statement.  If they ask the question again, you say, ‘That’s not the question’ or ‘I think the real question is’ and then you make another statement of your own.”

Prime Minister Jim Hacker

    A report on the GOP debate referenced that nature abhors a vacuum (absence of Trump) that was filled by Cruz and Rubio. The Shark doesn’t have enough power to vacuum up the Republican droppings at this debate.

    West Wing:


    Press is here for the Q&A. Now remember, you control the conversation. You don’t like what the ask, don’t accept the premise of the question.


    That’s my line, you know. You’re quoting me.
