‘Morning Joe’ asks Trump if he has any debate regrets; the answer might surprise you

mika-joe-trumpRepublican presidential front-runner Donald Trump got plenty sympathy from the hosts of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Thursday during his telephone interview.

Guest John Heilman asked Trump at about the 9-minute mark whether there were any instances that he didn’t do as well as he should have.

“Are there any particular moments or responses of yours where you look back and think, you didn’t do as well as you would liked to have and if you could you’d go back and do it in a completely different way?” he asked.

The real estate mogul brought up the remark he’d made in reference to Carly Fiorina during a Sept. 9 “Rolling Stone” cover story.

“Look at that face!” he said in the interview. “Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?!”

Trump told Heilman that it would have been better had the Rolling Stone writer not heard that statement.

The remark came up during the debate, and Fiorina’s response was hailed as the evening’s standout by many observers.

“It is what it is,” Tsaid Trump, who tried to smooth things over Wednesday night by complimenting Fiorina’s looks on stage. “I actually thought it was a very nice statement that I made to Carly.”

Co-host Joe Scarborough commiserated that the debate was “one gotcha question after another.”

As Trump was discussing poll numbers, co-host Mika Brzezinski put in, “You did just fine.”

“Did you say 65 percent, Mika?” Trump asked.

“I said you did just fine.”
