Fox News does do a good job hosting debates, but Bo Snerdley, Rush Limbaugh’s “official Obama criticizer,” asked if the Fox moderators perhaps came to the table a bit too prepared, hitting Donald Trump in particular with slides of statistics and even compilations of video clips to counter his claims.
This is 60 minutes or a Republican debate? I wonder if all the candidates tonight will face pre-planned graphics on specifics.

What is happening right now? I've never seen a debate with slides. Never. What life is this? #GOPDebate

Wallace has decided that the fact checking won't happen after the debate, but on one of many slides he has prepared. #GOPDebate

When has a candidate for president been ambushed in a debate by the moderators with prepared slides?Will Hillary be subjected to that?#GOP

Of course not.
The friction between moderator Megyn Kelly and Trump that was on full display at the first GOP debate wasn’t as pronounced here, but to some, it certainly looked like she would have been happy to have battled Trump herself, especially as she was prepared with a compilation of video clips showing Trump flip-flopping on issues over the years.

Wow. That was brutal. Audience here is in shock. Trump really exposed for the con artist that he is. #GOPDebate

It is hysterical that @realDonaldTrump is so predictable that Fox had full screen inserts ready to go.

Why is Megyn Kelly debating against Trump?
— Phil Kerpen (@kerpen) March 4, 2016
@kerpen I’m kinda Ok with that. She is fact checking his claims.
— Andrew Falkowski (@AFalkowski99) March 4, 2016
@kerpen because she is better at it than Marco or Ted.

Megyn Kelly is doing better vs Trump than any of the candidates

Trump already dreaming up killer menstruation jokes for tomorrow's rally. #GOPdebate
