While being interviewed by CNN's Wolf Blitzer about tonight's first presidential debate, RNC head Reince Priebus claimed that Donald Trump hosting fourteen season finales of his reality TV show has prepared him for tonight's debate.
Of all the sophomoric statements Priebus has made, this ranks up there with the best of them.
Wolf Blitzer began the interview by asking about Trump's preparation, "Give us some insight into Trump's debate preparation, process, what's he been doing?"
Priebus replied, "...he's studying and he's preparing and they're going through hypotheticals and what scenarios might come up."
He continued, "He's very comfortable, he did a great job in our primary debates, he's also been through, what, 14 seasons, season finales..he will be prepared."
Wolf didn't bother with a follow up to Priebus' idiotic assumption that hosting realty talk show finales is the same thing as prepping for a debate that will help determine who is elected to the highest office in the world.
And as my friend KagroX tweeted:
In a world where this was a thing that made sense, I'd point out that he's never done so as a contestant. https://t.co/SXFG2PkGe8

We're talking about reality shows and contestants now.
