  1. Meh, twitter is lame. Post on the blog.

    • Twitter is a more appropriate way to make many quick observations over a short period of time.

      • Trump did NOT invite Putin to hack America, that’s a LIE.

        Hillary running classified emails through her unsecured server is inviting Putin to hack America. That alone disqualifies her from presidential office.

  3. Red pantsuit, wow!

    I’m trying to watch this w/sound off to look at body English but I turned it on for a sec while Hillary is speaking – I might as well not have. She’s telling us that she wants to invest in our future, wants good jobs w/rising incomes for everyone? Who is she kidding?

    But she does look very poised.

    That said, she does not look truly healthy, and I’m not saying that because I dislike her. She really looks kind of wan.

    Trump is speaking – doing his stump speech, it’s blunt and not very eloquent. I see he’s getting right to it. I’m turning the sound off – he doesn’t look angry, he looks determined.

      • Hillary is capable of bullshitting non-stop. I’m reading the tweet-debate-bloggers and Rod Dreher, who was giving Trump his due, said that Trump is beginning to lose it. This is disastrous.

      • “I’m reading the tweet-debate-bloggers and Rod Dreher, who was giving Trump his due, said that Trump is beginning to lose it. This is disastrous.”

        I’m honestly not seeing the disaster, although isn’t Dreher a #nevertrump? I would expect him to see it as a disaster. But the media is playing it’s role as part of the Hillary campaign. Lester is asking Trump about tax returns and birtherism, but no questions for Hillary on the Clinton Foundation or her emails. I guess he learned his lesson from Matt Lauer.

      • Sorry – the “this is disastrous” was my interpretation of Dreher’s blogging. Dreher began by tweeting that Trump was beating Hillary, and then he switched and tweeted that Trump was losing it. My interpretation was that “this is disastrous” – if true. Was it?

      • “Lester is asking Trump about tax returns and birtherism, but no questions for Hillary on the Clinton Foundation or her emails.”

        That sucks, and should be a major part of the spin machine between now and the next debate. And in the next debate Trump has to hammer that home.

        This is all so unpredictable. What if the next Wikileaks has something so shocking that it upends the election completely? The debate won’t matter.

        I think Trump did do better at first, and then missed a lot of potential shots later and then Holt went after him, but without a major gaffe, who did better is pretty subjective.

      • I’ll take your word for it. I turned it off. I listened on the radio and he was interrupting too much (Alan Tonelson agreed w/me).

        Rod Dreher overreacts like a 13 year old girl on the cheer squad. I only mentioned him because Tonelson retweeted one of his tweets.

        I wonder what Cruz would have done to Hillary? He’d have crushed her.

  4. Streamed on Youtube – Clinton made a good prepared opening, mentioning grandchild and saying good to be sharing platform with Trump. Trump nice Reagan reference.

      • America loses, because of the NAM problem. Globalism was a method to combat it, but it took away jobs from Whites.

    • “he paid no taxes or minimal taxes.”

      In Trump’s case, that is a show of strength. Don’t underestimate it.

      • romney paid only 12% and he released his.

        prior to the debate i assumed the reason was his income was not that high. but his instant response, “that would being smart” suggested otherwise.

        whatever…there’s a there there.

        now his only hope his that hillary is ‘roiding or taking “low grade beaver tranquilizers”.

  7. Hillary is killing him tonight. This is what happens when one candidate seriously prepares and the other blows it off.

    • I agree. Trump seems unprepared and just keeps saying the same thing.

      Clinton is not really winning per se. She has a lot of lame answers, Trump just seems like he is rambling on without really saying anything.

    • He destroyed her. The problem with Hillary Clinton is that she thinks she is Al Gore debating George Bush. She’s adopting this imperious and arrogant character that is above it all. That will not work. Maybe against Mitt Romney, but not Donald Trump

  8. Trump is done. “The cyber”? Really? Just shows him to be deeply out of touch with the information age, generally.

  9. The whole scene’s embarrassing. He didn’t lose. He just demeaned himself by arguing with an old bitch for an hour and a half instead of making Plans and Deals like a real American male or just spacing out like whatever the fug I am.

    • Garr: bingo! That’s exactly what it was. You should be advising him. He should have treated her very respectfully, brought up the issue of the emails and be done with it. It wasnt the forum to speak seriously about trade.

      The problem is that Trump is just not smart enough to have dispatched her. It’s really funny watching all these HBD freaks denying the obvious: Trump has an IQ of about 115-120. Smart enough to have inherited his father’s business but nothin special. He has a charismatic personality. When he was young he was very handsome, and that really helps. But he’s not really a true leader type, and he didn’t dominate her. He doesn’t have Cruz’s nimble and forceful mind.

      And Hillary has lots of experience with men who blow up a lot. Perhaps she enjoys needling them and seeing them lose it? She’s certainly good at it.

      • PS – I’m hoping that her smug bitch entitled face put off the Berners who intended to vote for her. I wish that Trump had said, after her smug bitch entitled opening remarks about “good jobs,”: “those are nice words, Hillary. Is that what you said in your speeches to Goldman Sachs?”

  11. Trump lost this debate because he was trying to play it safe and not say anything that would rock the boat too much. Huuuuge mistake.

    When they were talking about frisking blacks disproportionately, Trump should have said because blacks commit more crime. But he didn’t because he was playing it safe.

    • Trump wants to garner some of the black votes from the Democrats.

      He has no solutions, because of this:

      NAMs are America’s foremost problem. Years of wasteful welfare subsidies poured into the black communities, and nothing good has come out of it.

      It’s not foreign policy, it’s not outsourcing (although one can attribute this from the black problem), it’s not the failing education in White schools, and it’s not the racial tensions between non-blacks, but the persistent black problem that puts America under heavy strain. Without them, America would just be a dandy nation, with a Mexican and Muslim problem, which pales in comparison to the black underclass one.

  12. I tapped out early, shortly after Clinton accused him of claiming global warming is hoax perpetrated by the Chinese. Trump then interrupted to vigorously deny.

    So I checked the Internet, and Trump had a tweet saying exactly that. Low-rent huckster.

  13. Maybe Trump deliberately performed poorly to set the bar low for the upcoming debates. I have a feeling he’s going to up his game and steamroll Clinton and catch her off guard

  14. Trump won the debate all the online polls are showing it. And he went easy on Shrillary this time to deflate the “Trump is crazy meme” that the media has pushed. next time he attacks.
