The crowd at the Republican presidential debate at Oakland University in Michigan made it clear Wednesday night that it wanted to hear about the economy, and not harassment allegations against former Godfathers Pizza CEO Herman Cain dating back to the 1990s.
The crowd booed CNBC moderator Maria Bartiromo as she alluded to the allegations and asked Cain, why should the American people hire a president if they feel there are character issues? The debate was marketed beforehand as a discussion on the economy.
Cain responded: The American people deserve better than someone being tried in the court of public opinion based on unfounded accusations.
The crowd then roared in approval.
Should have asked that 20 years ago. B*tch.
Any video clips of this since I missed the debate.
