Last night’s debate was nothing short of looking at a raving lunatic trying to debate a normal person. I know that is going to piss off some people, but Donald Trump looked like a raving lunatic trying to intimidate his opponent instead of debating her.
The optics were absolutely horrible. While Clinton was speaking, he was stalking her around the stage. I am not sure what he was trying to do. But, having him lurking right behind her all night scowling like some kind of spoiled 4-year-old brat was really a stupid idea.
Maybe that was because he didn’t have anything to say. When he was confronted with his comments released on Friday, he refused to admit that he was bragging about sexually assaulting women. He claimed “you didn’t understand what I was saying”. No, I do understand what you were saying. You were bragging that you could sexually assault women and get away with it because you are a “star”.
Donald Trump thinks that the American people are so stupid that he can make any claim he wants and they will believe him because he keeps saying “believe me”. Well they don’t believe him and he is in real trouble trying to win any of the battleground states.
The spot polls say the Clinton won the debate last night even though the Trump campaign keep trying to claim victory. I guess since he didn’t try to grab Clinton by her genitals that is a victory.
Then we have the scary part where he said he would join forces with Assad, Putin and Iran to fight ISIS. He claims that Russia is bombing ISIS when in fact they are bombing the rebels in Aleppo.
I defy anyone on the right to defend the idea we should support Assad, Russia and Iran. Nothing shows Trump’s global view better than that statement alone. He is willing to abandon NATO because he thinks it is obsolete, but he is willing to support dictatorships.
The very idea of dictatorship in this country came up when he claimed that “If I was President you would be in jail.” I haven’t heard that in many years and never in this country. That is the kind of thing dictators do not Presidents. As some have said that comment is totally “Banana Republic” talk.
I guess we will also hear that he had a bad mic again since he was sniffling all night again. Is Donald Trump suffering from a cold or is he crying about his disastrous campaign?
During the debate he even went out of his way to throw his running mate under the bus. Instead of talking about Syria and even saying that “I and Mike will sit down and discuss this because we do have minor disagreements about how to proceed in Syria,” he said “we haven’t spoken and I disagree.
About the only thing that Donald Trump was very good at last night was hurling innuendos and avoiding “answering” the questions that were asked of him. What new?
I really don’t know how to describe Donald Trump anymore. He keeps losing his cool and speaks like someone who doesn’t think. To put it plainly if Donald Trump had one more brain cell, it would die from loneliness.
We have 29 days until the election. That means we have 29 days of mud and sewer talk from Donald Trump. The man simply cannot help himself. The very idea that he could even have a remote possibility of becoming President is very scary. We cannot let him get anywhere near the White House.
Breaking news: As I was writing this I heard a report that Paul Ryan released a statement that said he would no longer defend Trump and will put all of his energy on helping to keep the House. But, he still hasn’t pulled his endorsement.
Still, the rats are abandoning ship.
