Entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy was one of five Republican candidates appearing on stage for the third Republican Presidential debate.

Ramaswamy showed that this was not going to be an ordinary affair right off the bat.

And Vivek Ramaswamy made one debate demand that caused the room to fall into a hush.

NBC’s left-wing moderators wanted to turn the debate into a pile on against Donald Trump.

The opening question teed up the other candidates to attack Trump.

Much to the delight of the left-wing activists in the press, some took the bait and went right after Trump.

Ramaswamy took a different course and trained his fire on Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, who was sitting in the front row of the debate.

Since taking over the RNC in 2017, McDaniel presided over a series of election losses in 2017, 2019, 2020, 2022, and in 2023.

Ramaswamy said the GOP turned into a Party of losers, demanded McDaniel resign, and even offered to yield his time to her to defend her performance as RNC Chairwoman.

CNN’s Dana Bash confronted McDaniel after the debate about Ramaswamy’s criticism of her performance.

McDaniel never responded to the substance of Ramaswamy’s critique and instead claimed any attack on her tenure as RNC Chairwoman was a distraction from the mission of beating Joe Biden.

“This Republican-on-Republican infighting — I’m not running for President so I’m not in this Primary — isn’t helping our Party,” McDaniel said. “We lost races in 2022 because of vitriol within our Party. We need every Republican and then some to win elections.”

Ramaswamy also blasted McDaniel for allowing leftists like Kirstin Welker and Lester Holt of NBC to moderate the debate.

McDaniel claimed that GOP candidates needed to take tough questions if they wanted to win elections.

“That’s what we have to do as a Party,” McDaniel added. “And if you can’t take a tough question, then you probably shouldn’t be running for President.”

But Democrats never take their debates outside their own media bubble.

Ramaswamy said Democrats would never allow Fox News Channel’s Greg Gutfeld to moderate a debate, so why should Republicans submit to partisan questions from the leftists who work for NBC?
