GREENVILLE, South Carolina — Corey Lewandowski, the campaign manager for 2016 GOP frontrunner billionaire Donald Trump, bashed the Republican National Committee (RNC) for stacking the debate audience here with pro-amnesty consultant class party donor figures. Lewandowski told Breitbart News in the spin room after the debate: I think the RNC does a terrible job in allocating the tickets, to be honest with you, There’s an opportunity—there’s 2,000 seats out there, there’s six candidates on stage, they should just divide them evenly so everyone has them, but instead they just give them to the donor class, they give them to the lobbyists and to all the special interests. It’s not fair, it’s not equitable. So I think what they should do moving forward is take the total number of seats available, allocate them across the board and let the candidates bring their people in, because that’s who should be here, not the donors. Repeatedly throughout the debate, the audience cheered as former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and his protegé Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) consistently and repeatedly made the case to grant amnesty to illegal aliens, while the audience oddly booed both Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) as they made eloquent

During the CBS debate tonight, Wall Street Journal moderator Kim Strassel challenged Marco Rubio on his tax plan that would triple the Child Tax Credit suggesting it was social engineering. But Rubio responded by reminding the audience that their tax money was “their money.” “This is the money of parents. You don’t earn the tax credit unless you’re working,” he said. “That’s your money, it doesn’t belong to government.” Rubio argued that if businesses were allowed to take tax credits for investing in their business with a piece of equipment, families should earn the same benefit. “Family formation is the most important thing in society … parents who are working get to keep more of their own money, not the government’s money to invest in their children to go to school, to go a private school, to buy a new back pack.” Rubio closed by explaining why it was important to invest in families. “I’m going to have a tax plan that is pro-family because the family is the most important institution in society,” he said. “You cannot have a strong country without strong families.”

Trump to Cruz: You Are ‘The Single Biggest Liar’

trumpC
Saturday at CBS’s Republican presidential debate, Donald Trump said his opponent Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is the “single biggest liar,” when Cruz said Trump “supports federal taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood.” Partial transcript as follows: CRUZ: You know, flexibility is a good thing, but it shouldn’t– you shouldn’t be flexible on core principles. I like Donald. He is an amazing entertainer. But his policies for most of his life.. TRUMP: Thank you very much, I appreciate it. CRUZ: For most of his life, his policies have been very, very liberal. For most of his life he has described himself as very pro-choice, and a a supporter of partial-birth abortion. Right now, today, as a candidate, he supports federal taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood. I disagree with him on that. That is a matter of principle. TRUMP: You are the single biggest liar. You are probably worse than Jeb Bush. You are the single biggest liar. This guy lied– let me just tell you. This guy lied about Ben Carson when he took votes away from Ben Carson in Iowa. And he just continues. And today, we had robo-calls saying, ‘Donald Trump is not going to run in South Carolina,’ where
