Oh noes! Mommy and Daddy are fighting over in the Trump camp!

Last Friday, Megyn Kelly reported to her panel that Donald Trump was watching years of video of Hillary Clinton, examining her "tells," her tics, and other non-verbal clues to somehow get ahead of the Democrat for Monday's debate. Charles Krauthammer called it insane over-preparation.

Well, we all know how that worked out for him.

Now the various experts on the Trump team are "debating" in-house about what to do for the next debate, which is in ten short days.

Newt Gingrich reportedly thinks Trump should bring in "professional debaters" to show Trump how to behave on a one-on-one debate stage. We have to assume the training would include "Do Not Sniffle."

On the other side, Rudy Giuliani thinks that since Trump won the first debate (no, really!) he shouldn't change anything about prepping for Debate Two.

Those closest to Trump insisted the Republican presidential nominee was satisfied with Monday night's debate, even as prominent voices within his own party called for more serious preparation next time following an opening confrontation marked by missed opportunities and missteps.

"Why would we change if we won the debate?" former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, a key Trump ally and traveling partner this week, told The Associated Press.

The next debate is 11 days away.

While his plan forward is far from set, Trump is not planning to participate in any mock debates, although he is likely to incorporate what one person described as "tweaks" to his strategy.

Tweak away, Donnie! And maybe you can stop talking about how annoying fat chicks are between now and then.

But Newt and Rudy aren't going to give you advice about that.

Can you help us out?
