This Dragon Has A Bad Day, Gets TKO’d By 14 Year Old in TV Debate


This Dragon Has A Bad Day, Gets TKO’d By 14 Year Old in TV Debate

Kevin O’Leary gets in over his head in a tv debate with 14-year-old Rachel Parent over mandatory labeling of foods containing genetically modified organisms.

O’Leary attempted to employ debating tricks to throw the 14 year old off her message.  In this David v. Goliath matchup, O’Leary didn’t have a chance.  He was even tag-teaming his co-host Amanda Lang  who attempted to throw the odd jab at Parent but without success.  O’Leary looked the fool in this odd spectacle.

Finally, with O’Leary starting to convulse it looked like Lang couldn’t take any more and metaphorically threw in the white towel by ending the debate.  TKO for Rachel Parent.  Perhaps O’Leary’s next venture should be a guest appearance on Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader.

To learn more about Parent’s performance reference The 14-Year-Old Who Crushed An Arrogant Interviewer by Brad Phillips in his blog Media Training.
