My .2cents for the media when trying to get straight answers from a trump surrogate.

Cut their microphone. Give them a couple of chances to answer, but when it's clear they're there to obfuscate or lie, cut their microphone and tell the audience that the individual is unwilling or unable to answer the question which makes the interview impossible and pointless.

1. That's my thinking, too.

Once they get the idea that they won't be able to get their talking points out without answering direct questions, they'll change their ways. They'll have no choice.

Anyone who thinks they'll choose not to appear if this is done doesn't know how politics work. If you can't make your party's points in front of a broad viewing audience, you're down to standing on a soapbox on a corner somewhere, yelling at passersby. They crave the airtime - so the media can make the rules.

2. Or, after a few future six minute rants, simply refuse to show up.

Demand of Drumpf that he put forth someone who can actually answer questions.
