“Gotcha question” is Republican-speak for “questions we’d rather not answer.”

Last week’s CNBC debate included plenty of those. The RNC’s response has essentially been to echo the indignation Donald Trump displayed during the debate when he said “It’s not a very nicely asked question the way you say that.”

The moderators’ tones were at times confrontational. But that’s what journalists are supposed to be. One of the questions was contemptuous and belittling, but anyone running for President should be able to handle that.
