Conservative Advises Trump To ‘Be Boring’ In Debates

Donald Trump “needs to be boring” to succeed in debates with Hillary Clinton, according to political pundit Charles Krauthammer.

“Boring, he wins,” the conservative commentator told Fox News’ Megyn Kelly on the eve of Monday night’s first presidential debate. He argued that because Clinton is “running a campaign on saying this is the scariest guy, unfit, out of control,” Trump “wins the debate” if he “can be up there for 90 minutes and be dull.”

Newsmax reported that Krauthammer advised the Republican nominee to “make people look at you and think you’re a plausible president.” He added: “Don’t talk about your hands,” a reference to former GOP candidate Marco Rubio’s comment during a debate in the primaries that “you know what they say about guys with small hands.” Trump denied the accusation.

“In the end, think of yourself in the press conference with the president of Mexico,” Krauthammer said. “Your job in this debate is to make people look at you and think you’re a plausible president. They are not going to care about any details. They won’t appreciate snarkiness or disrespect.”

The commentator pointed out that the debates with Clinton, unlike the face-offs in the primaries, will not be a “circus of 15 candidates.” Never before has Trump taken part in a debate with just one opponent on stage.

“His goal is not to win on points,” Krauthammer explained. “It’s not to win on substance. It’s to show himself to be calm … it is to not shout. … You’re with the secretary of state. Show you can stand there and be her equal.”
