CLEVELAND — Donald Trump’s latest reality show roared into Ohio Thursday night.

Within a few minutes of his first debate as a Republican presidential candidate, Trump refused to rule out a third-party run for the White House, ridiculed comedian Rosie O’Donnell and griped about his treatment by Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly.

It was an explosive start to the first GOP debate in a campaign season already upended by Trump, the unfiltered and brash real estate magnate. It was immediately apparent that classic Trump showed up to the debate — someone who pushes the boundaries in everything he does, including running for the White House.

Kelly challenged Trump on some of his past comments towards women.

“You call women you don’t like fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals,” she said.

Trump quickly responded: “Only Rosie O’Donnell.”

O’Donnell tweeted shortly after the comment: “try explaining that 2 ur kids”

Trump is smack in the center of the debate line-up tonight. The lower tier of presidential contenders had their brief moment in the sun earlier Thursday at a debate where Carly Fiorina delivered a memorable and polished performance.

    I personally think Trump is a disgrace and I would not want him to represent our country. It is irritating to listen to all the stupid comments he has to offer, unfortunately everyone is entitled to their own opinion no matter how stupid or idiotic it is. He is proof of how racism, prejudice, and stereotypes are still an issue in this country.

  • republicans rule

    out of these 10, i will vote for the one who promises more guns, fewer women’s rights, lower pay for women, fracking and oil drilling off of the California coast, and a complete elimination of science from public schools.
