According to conservative radio show hosts Glenn Beck and Mark Levin, Thursday night's GOP debate on Fox News was anything but presidential.
Levin doesn't think it's even worth having the debates at this point in the process, and he didn't particularly like Fox host Megyn Kelly's moderating Thursday night, either.
"I said to myself, 'Why are they still debating? Do we learn a damn thing out of any of these debates?' Seriously, got all these problems in the country," Levin said on The Glenn Beck Radio Program. "And I think Megyn Kelly really does have a problem with this stuff. I think she went on way too long with the Trump University. I got all that. That stuff gets out there."
Levin said he expects the debates to be "rough-and-tumble," but inquired, "Can we at least keep it above the belt rather than below the belt?"
Beck agreed, describing the Fox forum as "despicable" and something he would not have wanted his children to watch, specifically referring to Republican candidate Donald Trump's harangue about his genitalia.
"If I was watching that with my kids last night, I don't know what I would have said on the opening volley of 'yeah, I'm pretty well endowed,'" Beck commented. "I mean, what do you say?"
Levin blamed the billionaire businessman and Fox News for the nature of the debate, arguing that Trump has "brought down the level of this discussion."
"Somebody needs to cool it, and you would think the moderators might play that role but the moderators don't play that role," Levin argued. "They encourage it."
"Yeah, because they like the ratings," Beck said in agreement. "It's a great showing."
