Donald Trump Calls Foreign Policy Questions "Gotcha Questions" in Hugh Hewitt Interview

Donald Trump had a bit of an unforced error Tuesday night in a radio interview with Hugh Hewitt. Trump accused Hewitt of asking "gotcha" questions after Hewitt's questions revealed that Trump's grasp on key foreign policy figures leaves much to be desired.

Take a look here:

For what it's worth, Hewitt then ran a "controlled group experiment" where he posed the same questions to an unprepared Carly Fiorina. (The Trump interview had been pre-recorded and had not been released at the time of the Fiorina interview.) Minus a small hesitation in the beginning, where she almost seemed confused as to why she was being asked a relatively basic question, Fiorina absolutely killed it.

Hewitt will be one of the moderators in the Republican primary debate on September 16. I don't think it's too big of a stretch to say that Trump is probably studying up on foreign policy to prepare.
