Presidential Debate Open Thread

Have at it in the comments.

—————–

Notes on the debate:

Hillary “looking for ways to celebrate our diversity” and “overcome divisiveness.”

Will she use the word “vibrancy” again?

Trump mentions “strong border” in first answer, in comparison to first debate when it took him 61 minutes to get to the word “border.” He mentions two cops who were murdered this weekend in talking about “law and order.”

Hillary brings up the former Miss Universe again (Alicia Machado).

Hillary: “This is not who we are.”

Hillary’s answer on how she’s shocked, shocked by Trump’s 2005 lewd comments would be pretty good except for the fact that the only reason she ever got higher in life than, say, a Congressman’s chief of staff is because she is married to Bill Clinton.

But you are supposed to vote for Hillary because she is a self-made woman. Or something.

That’s one of the weirdest things about this election: it’s obvious that Hillary’s main reason for being the Democratic nominee is that her husband is term limited out of a third term, the way Lurleen Wallace was elected governor of Georgia when George Wallace got term limited out of running. But we’re all supposed to act like Hillary has taken on the entire male sex by running for President, rather than coasting on her husband’s slipstream.

Hillary pretty much punted on Trump’s counter-attack on her husband by not defending Bill but instead attacking Donald over various insensitive things he’d said before.

Trump says he will appoint a special prosecutor to look into Hillary’s emails.

“Because you’d be in jail.”

Will Trump say the word “wall” tonight?

Trump talking about health insurance company monopolies within each state — good point. Otherwise, Trump is not very personally reassuring on highly technical questions like health care finance.

Arab lady asks about what the candidates will do for her to fight Islamophobia. Trump replied, “That’s a shame … but Muslims have to report the problems when they see them.”

Hillary: “Unfortunately, there have been a lot of very divisive, dark things said about Muslims. … We’ve had Muslims in America since George Washington. My vision of America is one where everyone has a place …”

Why won’t Hillary say “radical Islamic terror”?

Hillary says “There are a lot of refugees.” She blames it on Russian aggression.

Trump: I understand the border. She doesn’t it. She has bad judgment.

Will Trump bring up Hillary’s “open trade and open borders”?

Hillary is implicitly confirming authenticity of Podesta Emails from Wikileaks by putting her two positions comment in perspective of Spielberg’s “Lincoln” movie.

Looks like he’s going to forget to mention Hillary’s “open borders” comment in Wikileaks.

Trump needs to tie his tax cuts into nationalism: We’re going to ask the rich to invest more within America, in return we’ll encourage them. Or something like that.

I think Trump should fight primarily not on issues but on principles: Do American citizens have the right to control their borders?

Question: “Is Aleppo like The Holocaust when the US waited too long to help?”

Huh?

Hillary blames Russians, advocates no-fly zones, and work more closely with our partners and their allies on the ground. “What is at stake here is the ambitions and aggressiveness of Russia.”

Trump: “She doesn’t even know who the rebels are. … Look at Gadaffi in Libya.”

Trump sounding like Pence on foreign policy.

Now Trump says he disagrees with Pence on Russia: Trump says let’s focus on beating ISIS, not on beating Assad. That sounds like a winning soundbite: Hillary thinks the worst problems in the Middle East are Assad and Putin, while Trump thinks it’s ISIS. Hillary can’t make up her mind who is the enemy in Syria, while Trump is focused on ISIS.

Hillary has complicated plans for Syria but it’s hard to tell whom she is talking about attacking. She clearly enjoys thinking about drone striking people, but she forgot to mention whose side they are on.

So, what does Hillary have lined up for the last 15 minutes? Because so far she has let Trump get back into the race …

Hillary talking about the Trump Effect Menace of rightwing 6 year olds bullying helpless Children of Color.

Hillary enumerating all the components of her Coalition of the Fringes and how Trump says mean things about them. He’s the Emonahanal Havenstein of 2016.

Trump: Look at Charlotte, Baltimore, Chicago. Biggest increase in murder in 45 years.

“She has tremendous hate in her heart.” That could be an important statement to get out there and get people thinking about.

Anderson Cooper talking up Alicia Machado, even though Anderson did get Alicia to say, more or less, that everybody in Venezuela has been involved in a few murder plots.

Trump defending Tweeting.

Hillary talking up Bill Clinton’s economy.

Hillary wants a Supreme Court to reverse Citizens United and get dark, unaccountable money out of politics. Irony?

Trump is wearing his red tie tonight, not the depressing blue one from the first debate. Red ties rule in Presidential debates.

Trump asking why Hillary isn’t putting 25 million of her own money she made off having been in power into her campaign so she doesn’t have to pander to quite so many special interests.

Hillary: “I respect the second amendment, but believes in comprehensive background checks …” it’s like extreme vetting for Americans. But the Zeroth Amendment says we can’t vet foreigners.

Trump hasn’t mentioned the Wall or Hillary’s “open borders” Wikileak.

Trump hasn’t mentioned any of his private conversations with Sean Hannity once all night.

Seems like Trump won the debate, even without a mention of The Wall or her “open borders” leak.

The PBS post-debate analysts are mournful, so I guess that proves Trump won.

Maybe Hillary figures the media has so many more Trump Tapes lined up to be released every 48 hours until the election day that she didn’t need to do very well tonight?

The rubber match of the debate series will be Wednesday, October 19, ten days from now.

    haha! Pussy Galore!

    My last prediction before I start making dinner: Trump can not dump on the Senators and Congress members, tonight, like the wusses they are, who are abandoning his ship. Let them; just don't talk about it with anyone.

    I will probably never vote for another Republican in my lifetime, after Nov., because the country is changing due to immigration, so there will always be a majority Democrat populace. The Republicans will realize that profound reality if Trump does not wind up in the White House.

    Once, again, the next 4 years could be a re-set for the GOP/they will at least, get one SCOTUS in - which is so fracking important! With Trump in the WH, there is time to develop a truly dynamic and intense Republican candidate. Donald is almost doing a service by giving them a path to a future candidate that they are excited about.

    I'm sorry, but none of the other 16 candidates were going to win...not a chance. They've got some key issues that I have always hated - mostly social. This year, the election is an existential crisis of what the USA means anymore.....a weak country which will turn into a Banana Republic with an elite, walled-off, private jetty-jet set; or the most unique, pragmatic, prosperous, innovative, most generous, with a "high trust" society, country in the world. The "what's in it for me," politicians need to be kicked out, like in Brazil.

    But, skip dragging Bill into this - not worth it. As much as I am the real misogynist here (I really, have always hated most women), I know Trump is not...but he must resist getting revenge. 'Cause that's what it will come across as. I mean, she called Bernie Bros losers, so that's really a misandrist comment! Bernie supporters can claim Misandry! But, pleez no sexy-time talk tonight! Pivot with aplomb! Think of your children's reputations - gotta shelve yours.

    It's not over, that's what the MSM wants you to think. The polls and commentators are all there to demoralize Trump voters and to make Hillary inevitable. Look how the pollsters are always oversampling women and democrats, that's a blatant sign of poll rigging.

    And I doubt at this stage there are any appreciable amount of undecided voters left. Look if a person can't decide who to vote for by now, they aren't worth pursuing, they're either idiots or spoiled rich kids living with mom and dad or senile retirees.

    Lest you think it's over, look at the turn out for Hillary's rallies. They are often no more than a few hundred with about half the attendees Hillary staffers and the rest bused in actors and hacks. No one really wants to see or listen to her, no one. Compare her turn out to Trump's which always hit the multiple thousand mark.

I don’t think you can blame Trump for this mess either; Mittens was a veteran politician and got awfully unnerved in 2012 after that summer-long smear campaign by Messina & Company. At least we won’t have to witness Mr. America First actually passing that promised pseudo-amnesty from his immigration speech. Any reasonable person should have realized his candidacy was too good to be true once that little tidbit came out.

    Problem with this is 4 years of Hillary after 8 years of Obama means game over. Mass immigration dooms the GOP is some of their stronger states, like Texas. Florida, North Carolina and Virginia will be blue forever. The demographics doom any GOP shot in the Electoral College. And SCOTUS; in addition to the Scalia seat. Ginsberg and Breyer figure to retire. Anthony Kennedy is 80, Clarence Thomas is 68. The GOP is still of the mind that we'll get them next time. But there isn't going to be a next time. It will be over.

    Trump is actually going to be lucky if all that happens to him is that he loses the election. With the media hysteria cranked up, I would have to think that his personal safety is in danger, and once the election is over, he probably will have a difficult time going back to private business. Clinton's DOJ, with GOPe connivance, is going to make an example of him to show anyone else who's contemplating taking on the establishment that doing so will ruin them.

  11. Predict has the chance of Trump winning the election at 19.5%.

    Nate Silver’s three models have Trump at 14.6, 18.8, and 22.9%.

    The first and lowest number looks only at polls and how accurate they are in the past. So for a simplified example, the model says if a candidate is losing by 3 points in the polls, he wins 24% of the time.

    The second looks at both polls and mean reversion from now until the election.

    The third includes a few other adjustments.

    Before the first debate, Silver had Trump as high as 52% and predictit had him as high as 38%.

    The fiasco over Brexit polls and its whole scientific-hucksterism shows that what Gold,Silver & Bronzenstein think of Trump's chances for the presidency is certainly more important than REAL opinions of our neighbors, coworkers , family members and friends...Not.

    Cold anger combined with a secret ballot is concoction that scares the Uniparty apartchiks the most;

    They are perfectly aware that Trump stands way better with a silently brewing monster-vote than the rigged polls are telegraphing.


    Therefore, no sign of defection among evangelical heavy hitters who support Trump from the beginning, while almost three-quarters of Republicans, or 74%, said GOP leaders should still back Trump.

    All of the fabricated pussy-rioting has a same sponsorship, here and in Russia as well.

    I give 52% , 64% and 83% ( you know, 3 models....very complicated to explain) chances that your moneyball-prophet Nate is on the same payroll.
    , @George
    Two possibilities for hope. First polling techniques from the landline and snail mail world of the past no longer work either because they don't predict preference or they don't predict turnout. Second, the same newspapers that insist Trump will be Putin's pawn while declaring nuclear war on Russia are conducting fraudulent polls. Third, maybe they are right some 16 yo autistic hacker in some unpronounceable Russian village will hack the election results.

  14. Going back to contingency plans to fight and block amnesty if Trump loses.

    Courts

    1. If the Democrats also retake the Senate, quickly confirm Garland.
    2. If the GOP holds the Senate, simply leave the seat open. (If they wanted to be nice about it, they could let Hillary fill Ginsberg’s seat, but never let her fill Scalia’s). They also need to stop any and all Clinton appointments to the DC, Fifth, and Fourth Circuit Courts of Appeal.

    States

    I wrote about some “best practices” to keep actual voters more white and middle class than potential voters:

    The most effective methods in my view is to (1) require voter ID (2) make becoming an absentee voter hard (3) restrict or eliminate early voting (4) cut back on the budget for elections with no announcement or fanfare (5) and most effectively, a permanent ban on felon voting.

    This last rule is only in place in three states, despite the fact that about 28 states have complete GOP control of state government.

    Another pro-white state policy is cutting state income and local property taxes in favor of higher sales taxes, which are harder for illegal immigrants and off the books people to avoid. The various exemptions on sales taxes for food, clothes, etc, should also be eliminated.

    Worst Case Scenario Options

    If the Democrats win the Senate, Presidency, and manage to vacate the Texas judge’s stay of the executive amnesty, the only option left is for the House to refuse to fund large portions of the government unless the amnesty policy is fully repealed. Hard to see that happening as long as Ryan is speaker. However, Ryan’s strongest supporters tend to be Republicans in swing districts who rely on his Koch Brothers and Chamber of Commerce cash, and likely about 20 of them would lose in the scenario of a Hillary and Democrat Senate win. The remaining, narrower GOP House majority therefore would at least be a better majority. There is also the hope that the GOPe will learn their lesson from this cycle and no longer push amnesty.

    Wrong. All taxes EXCEPT property taxes are avoidable by immigrants willing to offer a "cash discount." Texas has property taxes and no income taxes, so there is less flow from legitimate wage earners to undocumented cash earners. Kollivornia, with Prop 13, is heavily dependent on income and sales taxes. Which state are whites fleeing, and which are they moving to?
  15. You guys, it’s not the comments that are the problem. It’s the admission of sexual assault. There was a woman who said Trump grabbed her like that who was ignored. Yeah he’s a vulgar misandric jerk, but the real problem is that he is committing criminal sexual offenses. Those aren’t “comments” and it’s really baffling to see people referring to it as such.

    “Geraldo Rivera: ‘I have tapes’ of ‘embarrassing’ statements from Trump”

    http://www.politico.com/blogs/on-media/2016/10/geraldo-rivera-i-have-tapes-of-embarrassing-statements-from-trump-229433

    In the aftermath of a 2005 recording of Trump making sexually aggressive and crude comments about women in a conversation with NBC’s Billy Bush, Fox News’ Geraldo Rivera said that he has uncovered more “embarrassing” statements that Trump made during interviews with the show host.

    “I have interviewed Donald Trump many times and been with him many times and I have tapes,” Rivera said on Fox News’ The Five Sunday. “My brother and I have been starting to go through the tapes now and there are statements that, in the context of the current climate, would be embarrassing.”

    Rivera did not say whether he plans to release those recordings, nor was he specific about what they might contain except to say that he had not heard Trump use the word “pussy” before Friday’s tape emerged.

    “He’s never used the P-word in front of me, I’ll say that,” Rivera said later in the program. “But I never saw him come onto any of the beautiful women on the program.”

    The entire debate format, which ostensibly places the professional media in the role of (supposedly) unbiased questioner, unbiased fact-checker, candidate police, and umpire is ridiculous.

    Debates would be much, much better if they had teams of partisan questioners, not "moderators" -- i.e. Limbaugh asking partisan questions of Hillary, and in turn, some little punks from Daily Kos or Huffington Post asking partisan questions of Trump. And the candidates would respond to the questioners, not to each other.

    That would be great, and highly informative.

    You guys, it's not the comments that are the problem. It's the admission of sexual assault. There was a woman who said Trump grabbed her like that who was ignored. Yeah he's a vulgar misandric jerk, but the real problem is that he is committing criminal sexual offenses. Those aren't "comments" and it's really baffling to see people referring to it as such.

Have Bannon put together all the stuff with Bill and his bimbos from the last few years this week.

    "Geraldo Rivera: ‘I have tapes’ of ‘embarrassing’ statements from Trump"

    http://www.politico.com/blogs/on-media/2016/10/geraldo-rivera-i-have-tapes-of-embarrassing-statements-from-trump-229433

    In the aftermath of a 2005 recording of Trump making sexually aggressive and crude comments about women in a conversation with NBC's Billy Bush, Fox News' Geraldo Rivera said that he has uncovered more "embarrassing" statements that Trump made during interviews with the show host.

    “I have interviewed Donald Trump many times and been with him many times and I have tapes,” Rivera said on Fox News’ The Five Sunday. “My brother and I have been starting to go through the tapes now and there are statements that, in the context of the current climate, would be embarrassing.”

    Rivera did not say whether he plans to release those recordings, nor was he specific about what they might contain except to say that he had not heard Trump use the word “pussy” before Friday's tape emerged.

    “He’s never used the P-word in front of me, I’ll say that,” Rivera said later in the program. “But I never saw him come onto any of the beautiful women on the program.”

    Uh, actually it's the moderators and the media pundits that are going to do all the work. All Mrs. Clinton has to do is recite her lines without drooling or having a coughing fit. Trump could have a masterful peformance, and all the press is going to talk about is how badly she outscored him.

    Trump is actually going to be lucky if all that happens to him is that he loses the election. With the media hysteria cranked up, I would have to think that his personal safety is in danger, and once the election is over, he probably will have a difficult time going back to private business. Clinton's DOJ, with GOPe connivance, is going to make an example of him to show anyone else who's contemplating taking on the establishment that doing so will ruin them.

    And I doubt at this stage there are any appreciable amount of undecided voters left. Look if a person can’t decide who to vote for by now, they aren’t worth pursuing, they’re either idiots or spoiled rich kids living with mom and dad or senile retirees.

    Lest you think it’s over, look at the turn out for Hillary’s rallies. They are often no more than a few hundred with about half the attendees Hillary staffers and the rest bused in actors and hacks. No one really wants to see or listen to her, no one.

And, after our time-limited, splendid affair of a couple months (he had a girlfriend back in the states), I felt very confident for the rest of my life.

    Subsequently, I have "made" more than a few men better husbands back in my prime. But, man, are many American men and women prudes. I think it is terrible to live without good sex or to not have experienced it. And, this is only possible with a person you share a deep connection with, even if you don't wind up together forever.

    That's nonsense. Cruz doesn't support any of that plus he has supported other crazy things in the past - flat tax for the rich, free trade, amnesty (yep, went to the border to give out toys for illegals with that fool Glenn Beck), for example. Worse isn't better. It's amazing how some people can rationalize failure as something positive. Must be a defense mechanism or something.

    Cruz would have lost; even if he had won, he would have delivered nothing as president and would probably have supported an amnesty, despite whatever he said previously.

    Trump made the mistake of trying to appease the #trucucks. Instead, he should have gone all out from the beginning.

    If I were Trump in this debate, I would do the following : 1. slime Hillary's character...but not by bringing up Bill's affairs 2. bring up tariffs and tax increases on the rich to pay for social programs (i.e. nuke the #trucucks) 3. immigration moratorium 4. anti-free trade 5. anti-war

    Going back to contingency plans to fight and block amnesty if Trump loses.

    Courts

    1. If the Democrats also retake the Senate, quickly confirm Garland.
    2. If the GOP holds the Senate, simply leave the seat open. (If they wanted to be nice about it, they could let Hillary fill Ginsberg's seat, but never let her fill Scalia's). They also need to stop any and all Clinton appointments to the DC, Fifth, and Fourth Circuit Courts of Appeal.

    States

    I wrote about some "best practices" to keep actual voters more white and middle class than potential voters:


    The most effective methods in my view is to (1) require voter ID (2) make becoming an absentee voter hard (3) restrict or eliminate early voting (4) cut back on the budget for elections with no announcement or fanfare (5) and most effectively, a permanent ban on felon voting.

    This last rule is only in place in three states, despite the fact that about 28 states have complete GOP control of state government.
     
    Another pro-white state policy is cutting state income and local property taxes in favor of higher sales taxes, which are harder for illegal immigrants and off the books people to avoid. The various exemptions on sales taxes for food, clothes, etc, should also be eliminated.

    Worst Case Scenario Options

    If the Democrats win the Senate, Presidency, and manage to vacate the Texas judge's stay of the executive amnesty, the only option left is for the House to refuse to fund large portions of the government unless the amnesty policy is fully repealed. Hard to see that happening as long as Ryan is speaker. However, Ryan's strongest supporters tend to be Republicans in swing districts who rely on his Koch Brothers and Chamber of Commerce cash, and likely about 20 of them would lose in the scenario of a Hillary and Democrat Senate win. The remaining, narrower GOP House majority therefore would at least be a better majority. There is also the hope that the GOPe will learn their lesson from this cycle and no longer push amnesty.

    Another pro-white state policy is cutting state income and local property taxes in favor of higher sales taxes, which are harder for illegal immigrants and off the books people to avoid. The various exemptions on sales taxes for food, clothes, etc, should also be eliminated.

    Wrong. All taxes EXCEPT property taxes are avoidable by immigrants willing to offer a “cash discount.” Texas has property taxes and no income taxes, so there is less flow from legitimate wage earners to undocumented cash earners. Kollivornia, with Prop 13, is heavily dependent on income and sales taxes. Which state are whites fleeing, and which are they moving to?

A vote for Hillary is a vote for war with Russia, government by Goldman Sachs, Third World demographics, and eventual inter-ethnic apocalypse and collapse.

    Predict has the chance of Trump winning the election at 19.5%.

    Nate Silver's three models have Trump at 14.6, 18.8, and 22.9%.

    The first and lowest number looks only at polls and how accurate they are in the past. So for a simplified example, the model says if a candidate is losing by 3 points in the polls, he wins 24% of the time.

    The second looks at both polls and mean reversion from now until the election.

    The third includes a few other adjustments.

    Before the first debate, Silver had Trump as high as 52% and predictit had him as high as 38%.

    The fiasco over Brexit polls and its whole scientific-hucksterism shows that what Gold,Silver & Bronzenstein think of Trump’s chances for the presidency is certainly more important than REAL opinions of our neighbors, coworkers , family members and friends…Not.

    Cold anger combined with a secret ballot is concoction that scares the Uniparty apartchiks the most;

    They are perfectly aware that Trump stands way better with a silently brewing monster-vote than the rigged polls are telegraphing.

    Therefore, no sign of defection among evangelical heavy hitters who support Trump from the beginning, while almost three-quarters of Republicans, or 74%, said GOP leaders should still back Trump.

    All of the fabricated pussy-rioting has a same sponsorship, here and in Russia as well.

  46. Trump wins if he ignores the personal — which Shrillary will go for — and sticks to the issues.

    Unemployment is back up to 5%. Fewer Americans are participating in the labor market since records began.

    Economy, immigration, foreign policy. These are the reasons he’s the Republican nominee.

    When Trump talks about the issues, he wins. When he talks about himself, he loses.

    In nay case, there is no personal attack Hillary can launch that can’t be countered in two sentences or less. Business ethnics? Let’s talk about Cattle futures. Sexism? See below. Immigration? Ms. Machado as accessory to murder (don’t mention the sex tape, that’s a waste of time). Hell, her speeches to Goldman Sachs and co., about what she wants to do to the US put her on shaky ground. Trump can mention any of these things in a single sentence and return to the issues.

    If Hillary is actually dumb enough to raise his “sexist” comments, he can dismiss her in a single sentence: yeah, I said something I shouldn’t have in a private conversation. You habitually provided cover for your husband when he committed rape and habitually provided an alibi for his activities. Then he returns to the issues.

    If, as is more likely, her accomplice, Anderson Cooper does, Trump can just note Cooper and his crew were nowhere to be found when Bill Clinton committed rape and when Hillary covered up for him. Then he returns to the issues.

    What Trump said in the equivalent of a locker room conversation simply isn’t relevant.

    Another pro-white state policy is cutting state income and local property taxes in favor of higher sales taxes, which are harder for illegal immigrants and off the books people to avoid. The various exemptions on sales taxes for food, clothes, etc, should also be eliminated.

     

    Wrong. All taxes EXCEPT property taxes are avoidable by immigrants willing to offer a "cash discount." Texas has property taxes and no income taxes, so there is less flow from legitimate wage earners to undocumented cash earners. Kollivornia, with Prop 13, is heavily dependent on income and sales taxes. Which state are whites fleeing, and which are they moving to?

    That’s right. I have an in-law who made significant amounts of money in immigrant communities on the east coast through a cash only business. They avoided sales tax, she avoided large amounts of income tax. Win win!

    Predict has the chance of Trump winning the election at 19.5%.

    Nate Silver's three models have Trump at 14.6, 18.8, and 22.9%.

    The first and lowest number looks only at polls and how accurate they are in the past. So for a simplified example, the model says if a candidate is losing by 3 points in the polls, he wins 24% of the time.

    The second looks at both polls and mean reversion from now until the election.

    The third includes a few other adjustments.

    Before the first debate, Silver had Trump as high as 52% and predictit had him as high as 38%.

    Two possibilities for hope. First polling techniques from the landline and snail mail world of the past no longer work either because they don’t predict preference or they don’t predict turnout. Second, the same newspapers that insist Trump will be Putin’s pawn while declaring nuclear war on Russia are conducting fraudulent polls. Third, maybe they are right some 16 yo autistic hacker in some unpronounceable Russian village will hack the election results.

  53. So what do we think is going to happen with immigration once Hillary gets elected. It still looks like the GOP is going to retain control of the house. But clearly there are a lot of pro-amnesty republicans (Flake, McCain, Graham from the senate), so will Hillary have the votes to push through “comprehensive immigration reform”? Also, what is the demographic situation gonna look like in 4 years even if amnesty doesn’t go through, since birthright citizenship is still a thing? Basically is there any hope of our country not becoming a third world hell hole?

Seeing Trump holding a shock press conference with all the women Bill wronged and that lady who’s rapist young lawyer Hillary managed to get off made up my mind pretty quick. The panelists managed to go from snide and smirky to shocked and scared in a few minutes. The great thing about Trump is he instantly goes on the attack at a moment’s notice. I had dinner with some people the other day and they were vaguely discussing the Clinton’s. The convo showed me that most normies have really been shielded by the media from the many scandals in Bill’s closet.

    I don’t think Trump’s attempt to attack Hillary over Bill’s sexual activities will ultimately do him any good. As bad as Hillary might have been and complicit in Bill’s sexual activities, it still looks like blaming or attacking a woman for something a man did.

  62. So Trump has given a press conference with women who have claimed to have been sexually assaulted by Bill Clinton.

    I guess to me it isn’t so obvious that this is a poor tactic.

    Look, negative advertising works. This is why it’s used. Negative advertising has now been thrown at Trump in the form of this tape, and Trump’s press conference is way of throwing it right back.

    I appreciate that it’s typically best if this counterattack is performed by surrogates instead of the candidate. But will such a response really be heard from someone else’s mouth, especially given how the Megaphone will never give Trump’s side its due?

    In fact, it’s simply a remarkable piece of gall that Hillary’s supporters — and, for God’s sakes, Hillary herself in a tweet — should express such disgust over Trump’s tape, given how eager they have been to support Bill Clinton in the face of his sexual scandals. They have opened up this entire line of attack, presumably expecting that there would be no one to call them on their hypocrisy. How do they effectively answer him on this point? His case for their hypocrisy is actually quite compelling, and easy to understand for the public. And fighting fire with fire isn’t exactly an unpopular thing to do.

    I’m not going to pretend that I know that this will work — but I don’t see why people seem so certain it will backfire. It may seem that not responding to the controversy, or making light of it, would work better, but I don’t know why this would be so — the most likely consequence of doing so is that the issue festers, and indeed is aggravated over time, as Hillary’s supporters keep pushing it hard.

    But if Trump has an effective answer, and the women Bill Clinton has abused seem persuasive to the public, then I think that entire line of attack might be greatly diminished in power, and will be so at the earliest possible time, rather than continuing through election day. Better sooner than later.

    It would of course be great if Trump could just focus on the issues — but nothing could be more obvious than that the next number of newscycles will be consumed with this tape, and/or other similar tapes, because that’s what the media wants. But if every such newscycle is answered with Trump making even more prominent the women Bill Clinton has abused, and Hillary has defamed or dismissed, that ploy may be reduced or retired — which is what seems to have happened to Machado.

    It may be that this won’t be enough for Trump to win — but it can still be the best, most effective thing he could do, under the circumstances.

    I wonder if this is true or like the rumored tape of Obama ranting about “whitey” during the ’08 election that never materialized:

    “Producer Says There’s Footage of Trump Saying the N-Word”

    https://theslot.jezebel.com/producer-says-theres-video-of-trump-saying-the-n-word-1787592521

    Emmy Award-winning producer Chris Nee alleged Sunday on Twitter that Apprentice producers are sitting on footage that includes film of Donald Trump using the n-word.

    Nee made the comments in response to a former producer on the show, who tweeted Saturday that Trump has been caught on camera saying “far worse” than the things he said in the Access Hollywood footage.

    According to Nee, who says she heard from “producers/crew” on the show, one of those “far worse” things is Trump saying the n-word. She tweeted the allegations at Mark Cuban, citing a $5 million penalty fee for leaking footage apparently included in most of Apprentice executive producer Mark Burnett’s contracts. This shouldn’t come as news to Cuban—his show, Shark Tank, is also produced by Burnett.

    BuzzFeed reports that Burnett, who is a Trump supporter, has been threatening employees with access to the show’s unaired footage. Last week, more than twenty people involved in the show spoke anonymously with the AP about Trump’s behavior during the production. He would often speculate about women’s sexual activities and liked to discuss who he would and wouldn’t have sex with, sometimes in front of the person he was talking about. Once, in the middle of filming, the sources allege to the AP, he stopped and singled out a contestant.

    “We were in the boardroom one time figuring out who to blame for the task, and he just stopped in the middle and pointed to someone and said, ‘You’d f… her, wouldn’t you? I’d f… her. C’mon, wouldn’t you?’”

    The person continued: “Everyone is trying to make him stop talking, and the woman is shrinking in her seat.”

  65. I’m hoping the pre-show with Bill’s victims was Trump compromising with Stephen Miller about not trying to bring it up in the debate proper.

    Contrition in a redemptive way that will help him off the hook for further media ambushes (“This last year I’ve become a changed man and know I have a duty to be the leader America needs. By the way the next 10 year old leak was also the old me”), open borders, trade, social security, Libya, Syria, Russia.

    A big silver lining to the GOP betrayal is that if he pulls it out and wins there’s less chance of him sleepwalking into doing whatever confident acela corridor GOP ghouls tell him is the tough guy thing to do.

    haha! Pussy Galore!

    My last prediction before I start making dinner: Trump can not dump on the Senators and Congress members, tonight, like the wusses they are, who are abandoning his ship. Let them; just don't talk about it with anyone.

    I will probably never vote for another Republican in my lifetime, after Nov., because the country is changing due to immigration, so there will always be a majority Democrat populace. The Republicans will realize that profound reality if Trump does not wind up in the White House.

    Once, again, the next 4 years could be a re-set for the GOP/they will at least, get one SCOTUS in - which is so fracking important! With Trump in the WH, there is time to develop a truly dynamic and intense Republican candidate. Donald is almost doing a service by giving them a path to a future candidate that they are excited about.

    I'm sorry, but none of the other 16 candidates were going to win...not a chance. They've got some key issues that I have always hated - mostly social. This year, the election is an existential crisis of what the USA means anymore.....a weak country which will turn into a Banana Republic with an elite, walled-off, private jetty-jet set; or the most unique, pragmatic, prosperous, innovative, most generous, with a "high trust" society, country in the world. The "what's in it for me," politicians need to be kicked out, like in Brazil.

    But, skip dragging Bill into this - not worth it. As much as I am the real misogynist here (I really, have always hated most women), I know Trump is not...but he must resist getting revenge. 'Cause that's what it will come across as. I mean, she called Bernie Bros losers, so that's really a misandrist comment! Bernie supporters can claim Misandry! But, pleez no sexy-time talk tonight! Pivot with aplomb! Think of your children's reputations - gotta shelve yours.

    Problem with this is 4 years of Hillary after 8 years of Obama means game over. Mass immigration dooms the GOP is some of their stronger states, like Texas. Florida, North Carolina and Virginia will be blue forever. The demographics doom any GOP shot in the Electoral College. And SCOTUS; in addition to the Scalia seat. Ginsberg and Breyer figure to retire. Anthony Kennedy is 80, Clarence Thomas is 68. The GOP is still of the mind that we’ll get them next time. But there isn’t going to be a next time. It will be over.

    Really have no idea what the hell is going to happen tonight.

    Debates would be much, much better if they had teams of partisan questioners, not “moderators” — i.e. Limbaugh asking partisan questions of Hillary, and in turn, some little punks from Daily Kos or Huffington Post asking partisan questions of Trump. And the candidates would respond to the questioners, not to each other.

    Essentially he has to play the James Spader character on TV’s “Blacklist.” The bad guy with some standards who protects his own. Women like that — Spader plays every woman’s fantasy father figure, a bad man willing to kill at the drop of a hat to protect his daughter.

    Debates are not about making logical points. Its about making people FEEL, and feel one candidate vs. the other make the more emotionally compelling leader.

    Trump needs to paint Hillary and Bill as pyschopathic liars and long-time abusers and enablers of all sorts of people who have no loyalty to anyone and will not even play the bad-but-protector role that lots of White women follow on TV. For that, he has to grab the role for himself.

    Trump isn't any better than the Ryan/Rubio crowd after that fantastic flip-flop on immigration. He isn't talking about tariffs anymore, either. The best option for this election was relying on President Lyin' Ted to gum up the works for four years.

    That’s nonsense. Cruz doesn’t support any of that plus he has supported other crazy things in the past – flat tax for the rich, free trade, amnesty (yep, went to the border to give out toys for illegals with that fool Glenn Beck), for example. Worse isn’t better. It’s amazing how some people can rationalize failure as something positive. Must be a defense mechanism or something.

    Cruz would have lost; even if he had won, he would have delivered nothing as president and would probably have supported an amnesty, despite whatever he said previously.

    Trump made the mistake of trying to appease the #trucucks. Instead, he should have gone all out from the beginning.

    If I were Trump in this debate, I would do the following : 1. slime Hillary’s character…but not by bringing up Bill’s affairs 2. bring up tariffs and tax increases on the rich to pay for social programs (i.e. nuke the #trucucks) 3. immigration moratorium 4. anti-free trade 5. anti-war

    "Because you'd be in jail" quip is fine.

    The special prosecutor thing, i thought was counter productive. (Especially because Trump still hasn't explained why she was doing it--skirting FOI to do favors for Clinton Foundation clients.)

    "Something more like, "FBI director James Comey basically said the evidence was substantial and you'd be prosecuted ... except for the fact you're Hillary Clinton and running for President. I'd seriously considered appointing a special prosecutor if i was elected. But really American just needs to see the *end* of the Clinton era. Take all the bribes Wall Street, Goldman Sachs, the Saudis and others have paid you and please do us all a favor and just *leave*."

    Offer Americans something positive out of this mess--the end to the Clinton saga. Trump should make that point in his final pitch to voters.

    her campaign (internet)soliciting former Bernie people for money is like, 6 times a day, from what I hear. I agree, it's not over, hahahah: Until the Fat Lady Sings! I agree that it is all Pravda propaganda to make people believe Trump is behind. I mean he had a nice, unplanned "breakfast rally at the TTower yesterday." His people don't read the NYT or watch CNN.

    OT: most women, in their wildest fantasies, want men to grab their p*ssy and boobs, or butt! I realize the tape was damaging and cringe-worthy, but I have always thought Americans are the biggest prudes. I mean, I shouldn't say this, but, I had a really good sex-guru, a fellow student, who was fracking unbelievable in bed - he was Irish, btw, literally Irish. And, after our time-limited, splendid affair of a couple months (he had a girlfriend back in the states), I felt very confident for the rest of my life.

    Subsequently, I have "made" more than a few men better husbands back in my prime. But, man, are many American men and women prudes. I think it is terrible to live without good sex or to not have experienced it. And, this is only possible with a person you share a deep connection with, even if you don't wind up together forever.

    I have given my sons books on being a good lover...books with pictures. Ok, said too much... but I'm anticipating the sexy-time talk tonight!...and I hate fracking, Spanish Inquisition, with people who have no idea what good sex is...and, here's a clue: people who are loosey-goosey with sex-talk, love sex; and are good at it. But, the difference is: you don't ever force someone to have sex with you....ever. SO, take that with a grain of salt - my nerves talking :)! And, I'm bored by the Trump tape thing now, with mealy-mouth Billy Bush...bush...my mind is teetering!

    I’m well aware that women like guys who take the initiative…but guess wrong and you could wind up in jail.

    Not worth it.

    He should have let his zingers stick and not keep repeating them.

    He should have defended white people and spoken about law and order. And The Wall.

    But yeah, he wasn’t as horrible as last time. And the fact that he has a low bar to clear may make him appear like the winner.

    But ultimately he does NOT win when he plays politician and talks about the issues. He wins when he seduces the people to vote for him. And seduction is different than drawing up a balance sheet.

    "Hillary: “I respect the second amendment, but believes in comprehensive background checks …”"

    Comprehensive background checks on Americans, except when it comes to voting? And then it's 'racism' against the poor as they can't be bothered to either get an ID, or produce one.

    And how much background checking for other things-jobs, healthcare, etc. is she in favor of for those who are otherwise trying to pass themselves off as being legally in the US?

    Seems to me these are pretty important too.

    Just a quibble, but Trumps could have mentioned the First Amendment as well as the Second. Internet censorship is one thing that drives Millenials (and gen Ys) nuts, and its definitely on Hillary’s agenda.

    One loose end is in Sirte, Libya, where the jihadi thugs sponsored by the harpy in her overthrow of Libya committed a mass murder on Africans Khaddafi had settled there as "mercenaries" when they seized the city. In general, Benghazi really represents the war crime Hillary is guilty of, spearheading the Libya destabilization. After all, even Obama has admitted that this was his greatest error. If Trump wins, perhaps he won't take Obama's position that war crimes should be forgotten about as we go forward.

    Uh, actually it's the moderators and the media pundits that are going to do all the work. All Mrs. Clinton has to do is recite her lines without drooling or having a coughing fit. Trump could have a masterful peformance, and all the press is going to talk about is how badly she outscored him.

    Trump is actually going to be lucky if all that happens to him is that he loses the election. With the media hysteria cranked up, I would have to think that his personal safety is in danger, and once the election is over, he probably will have a difficult time going back to private business. Clinton's DOJ, with GOPe connivance, is going to make an example of him to show anyone else who's contemplating taking on the establishment that doing so will ruin them.

I'm sure you weren't trying to do that or anything, and reading what you wrote sorta makes the same point I am, but it was worded kinda funny, so... thought I'd clarify.

And her last answer on the “one thing you admire about your opponent” question she blew by going clear off the topic and prattling on about how great a president she would be – while Mr. Trump’s answer was gentlemanly yet cut Hillary’s jugular: “She’s a fighter . . .

    His prancing and strutting up and down the stage was a bit irritating, but I guess it was a strategy to intimidate Hillary or maybe even trigger a seizure. In any case, she looked diminutive when Trump was standing behind her as she was answering the guests.
    Whenever Trump repeated the phrase: “Hillary’s all talk and no action”, I was hoping for him to say “All talk and no walk”! But that would have been too mean to an invalid, I figure.
    Finally, is it just me, or Hillary looks like she’s lost nearly 40 pounds?

    There were times when it looked to me like he was trying to work the different camera angles. There was one sequence where they kept switching the view of Hillary (while she was speaking) and each time Trump adjusted his position in the background. Did anyone else think this or have another idea of what he was trying to do?

    Trump comes out swinging! He's doing great.

    So far, the debate "moderators" have been a black man, a black woman, a white woman and a gay man. The media isn't going to wait until Hillary is elected - they're replacing hetero white men right now. Trump is alone in standing up for us, dealing with immigration, attacks on police and las and order, trade, jobs leaving the country, etc.

    I’m late to this thread, and I understand the University of Washington’s gesture to the Singaporean foreign student who is their student council president.

    Just the same, it was off-putting to see a citizen of a foreign country inserted so directly into our country’s democratic workings at the highest level—a presidential debate.

    I guess it was the open borders elite’s way of thumbing their nose at America.

    I agree. Trump came across like a fighter in this debate rather than a fish out of water, like in the first debate. I was encouraged. He didn't roll over and play dead like most people caught in a scandal. I should say, however, that I don't think this bus video with Bush was so much a scandal as a puffed up controversy. Just a privately recorded conversation that us guys have all heard hundreds of times in our lives. Had it been recorded last week, it'd be a scandal, but 11 years ago, no way.

    Trump isn't as smooth as Hillary with articulation and delivery, but Hillary's interaction with the audience came across like a Peace Corps worker talking to a bunch of sixth graders from a third world country ("That's a really good question!") Condescending, to say the least.

    So Trump has given a press conference with women who have claimed to have been sexually assaulted by Bill Clinton.

    I guess to me it isn't so obvious that this is a poor tactic.

    Look, negative advertising works. This is why it's used. Negative advertising has now been thrown at Trump in the form of this tape, and Trump's press conference is way of throwing it right back.

    I appreciate that it's typically best if this counterattack is performed by surrogates instead of the candidate. But will such a response really be heard from someone else's mouth, especially given how the Megaphone will never give Trump's side its due?

    In fact, it's simply a remarkable piece of gall that Hillary's supporters -- and, for God's sakes, Hillary herself in a tweet -- should express such disgust over Trump's tape, given how eager they have been to support Bill Clinton in the face of his sexual scandals. They have opened up this entire line of attack, presumably expecting that there would be no one to call them on their hypocrisy. How do they effectively answer him on this point? His case for their hypocrisy is actually quite compelling, and easy to understand for the public. And fighting fire with fire isn't exactly an unpopular thing to do.

    I'm not going to pretend that I know that this will work -- but I don't see why people seem so certain it will backfire. It may seem that not responding to the controversy, or making light of it, would work better, but I don't know why this would be so -- the most likely consequence of doing so is that the issue festers, and indeed is aggravated over time, as Hillary's supporters keep pushing it hard.

    But if Trump has an effective answer, and the women Bill Clinton has abused seem persuasive to the public, then I think that entire line of attack might be greatly diminished in power, and will be so at the earliest possible time, rather than continuing through election day. Better sooner than later.

    It would of course be great if Trump could just focus on the issues -- but nothing could be more obvious than that the next number of newscycles will be consumed with this tape, and/or other similar tapes, because that's what the media wants. But if every such newscycle is answered with Trump making even more prominent the women Bill Clinton has abused, and Hillary has defamed or dismissed, that ploy may be reduced or retired -- which is what seems to have happened to Machado.

    It may be that this won't be enough for Trump to win -- but it can still be the best, most effective thing he could do, under the circumstances.

    So Trump has given a press conference with women who have claimed to have been sexually assaulted by Bill Clinton.

    I guess to me it isn’t so obvious that this is a poor tactic.

    It’s not obvious to me, either, but I’m open to arguments on this point.

  194. When the Machado issue is raised, why isn’t Trump using the opportunity to pivot off Hillary’s sexism talking points and tee up immigration policy and Hillary’s judgment with the unindicted accessory to attempted murder/threatened to kill a judge/drug lord baby mama facts? That would seem to be the strongest response for Trump. Everything else (e.g., sex tape) frames the debate as Trump v. Machado rather than Trump v. Clinton.

    That fact that the media (e.g. CNN which I watched) immediately made this a talking point in their best wow-just-wow manner struck me as a very good sign. A Vice Presidential candidate disagreeing with the guy at the top of his ticket? Yeah, it's a gaffe, looks sloppy, and sends a normal campaign off-message for a couple days. But Trump is the boss here and he's articulating the far more sane policy.

    Reframe technique? Point out that for half a decade at least liberals accused Bush of being Cheney's dumb puppet (there was even the hilarious moment when the Vice Presidential scouting committee Bush tapped Cheney to head came back with, as its unanimous nominee- tada!- Dick Cheney). Trump being his own man, being able to respectfully disagree with his running mate on important issues, and not being at all like the moron who preceded Obama, are all easy softballs for him to hit.

    Hillary still looks stressed when Benghazi is mentioned. There must be loose ends still dangling from her involvement there.

    One loose end is in Sirte, Libya, where the jihadi thugs sponsored by the harpy in her overthrow of Libya committed a mass murder on Africans Khaddafi had settled there as “mercenaries” when they seized the city. In general, Benghazi really represents the war crime Hillary is guilty of, spearheading the Libya destabilization. After all, even Obama has admitted that this was his greatest error. If Trump wins, perhaps he won’t take Obama’s position that war crimes should be forgotten about as we go forward.

  201. I was a little startled by Trump telling Hillary, “You’d be in jail,” but I’m not sure it was a bad move. He vividly inserted that thought into viewer’s minds. I think it’s the equivalent of calling Jeb “low energy.” It will stick in people’s minds. Maybe one of Scott Adams’ rhetorical kill shots. Hillary is tremendously corrupt person–Nixon was a little ray of sunshine in comparison.

    I could still hear Trump breathing loudly through his nose so I guess it wasn’t the fault of the microphone after all. (Unless he was set up again.)

    Weird moment was when Trump started going on about his Washington, DC hotel again, and how good his credit is. He just can’t resist talking business.

    Trump let them force him to talk too much about the tape. One apology, no need to repeat it, I would have preferred he respond, “I’ve apologized, let’s go on to substantive matters.”

    The picture of Slick Willie on Drudge was amazing–the look of fear and hate.

    The CNN poll is less accurate than YouGov because CNN has a disproportionate share of Democrats in their sample.

    The entire debate format, which ostensibly places the professional media in the role of (supposedly) unbiased questioner, unbiased fact-checker, candidate police, and umpire is ridiculous.

    Debates would be much, much better if they had teams of partisan questioners, not "moderators" -- i.e. Limbaugh asking partisan questions of Hillary, and in turn, some little punks from Daily Kos or Huffington Post asking partisan questions of Trump. And the candidates would respond to the questioners, not to each other.

    That would be great, and highly informative.

    You still need someone to pose the questions, shut them up, and move things along. Or else it’d be chaos. I don’t see why they can’t get some guy from India, or somewhere, who doesn’t know or care about American politics.

    I'm glad he did that. That's the sort of thing that makes me like Trump. BTW, before the debate Megyn Kelly was claiming the GOP are considering dumping Trump and that Pence was going to determine how he was going to proceed after the debate.

    Media are now saying that it is going to be difficult to drop Trump from the ticket. He did well enough that the party can’t push him out. So bad news for the Reoublican establishment.

    Trump's advisors are giving him contradicting advice and the last few days have been spent weathering October Surprise #1 rather than preparing for debate night. I don't think you can blame Trump for this mess either; Mittens was a veteran politician and got awfully unnerved in 2012 after that summer-long smear campaign by Messina & Company. At least we won't have to witness Mr. America First actually passing that promised pseudo-amnesty from his immigration speech. Any reasonable person should have realized his candidacy was too good to be true once that little tidbit came out.

    I agree. Trump came across like a fighter in this debate rather than a fish out of water, like in the first debate. I was encouraged. He didn't roll over and play dead like most people caught in a scandal. I should say, however, that I don't think this bus video with Bush was so much a scandal as a puffed up controversy. Just a privately recorded conversation that us guys have all heard hundreds of times in our lives. Had it been recorded last week, it'd be a scandal, but 11 years ago, no way.

    Trump isn't as smooth as Hillary with articulation and delivery, but Hillary's interaction with the audience came across like a Peace Corps worker talking to a bunch of sixth graders from a third world country ("That's a really good question!") Condescending, to say the least.

    The Politico poll showed that the video lost Trump only 1 point due to the video. So voters seem to agree with you.

    Trump did well, given the debates are rigged against him. In two instances, I thought Hillary would have a seizure : when Trump mentioned Bill's rape victims and then Benghazi.
    His prancing and strutting up and down the stage was a bit irritating, but I guess it was a strategy to intimidate Hillary or maybe even trigger a seizure. In any case, she looked diminutive when Trump was standing behind her as she was answering the guests.
    Whenever Trump repeated the phrase: "Hillary's all talk and no action", I was hoping for him to say "All talk and no walk"! But that would have been too mean to an invalid, I figure.
    Finally, is it just me, or Hillary looks like she's lost nearly 40 pounds?

    I was a little startled by Trump telling Hillary, "You'd be in jail," but I'm not sure it was a bad move. He vividly inserted that thought into viewer's minds. I think it's the equivalent of calling Jeb "low energy." It will stick in people's minds. Maybe one of Scott Adams' rhetorical kill shots. Hillary is tremendously corrupt person--Nixon was a little ray of sunshine in comparison.

    I could still hear Trump breathing loudly through his nose so I guess it wasn't the fault of the microphone after all. (Unless he was set up again.)

    Weird moment was when Trump started going on about his Washington, DC hotel again, and how good his credit is. He just can't resist talking business.

    Trump let them force him to talk too much about the tape. One apology, no need to repeat it, I would have preferred he respond, "I've apologized, let's go on to substantive matters."

    The picture of Slick Willie on Drudge was amazing--the look of fear and hate.

    Hillary handles herself well, I have to give her credit. If she weren't corrupt, didn't have bad judgment, and didn't have all the wrong views, she might be a good president.

    Didn’t notice Trump’s breathing at all in the first debate, but here it was jarring. Somebody definitely messing with the audio setup

    They did drag the tape out because they are desperate to be partisan. In the end it turned out well for Trump

    He’s fending off the Russian ties claims when talking about his business vetted by Uncle Sam. Just because he enjoyed, practically relished talking about his business doesn’t mean it wasn’t on point.

    I'm with Steve. Very likely. The thing is this sort of stuff is basically impossible to disprove. They just make the accusation. It's fundamentally the issue about why these date rape cases are very difficult and indeed are different than say prosecuting assault. Feminists yap that's it's some kind of conspiracy against women, but it's fundamentally because the underlying act--sex-- is something that people voluntarily engage in, unlike say getting killed or the crap beaten outta you or your house being robbed.

    Trump is going to have to handle this carefully and firmly.
    --> It's nonsense.
    --> If it wasn't nonsense the Clinton camp could have rolled it out months ago. They didn't because they don't want to any sort of full investigation. They want everyone to accept this allegation that they've ginned up as the full story.
    --> It didn't happen, it's absolute nonsense and typical of the lies and dishonesty you get from the Clintons.

    Seriously, the way my sex thinks is embarrassing as Hell. It sucks getting lumped in with them. I know some great, honorable, really intelligent women, and a few truly brilliant women, but women in general -- too stupid to be rightfully allowed to vote. Sometimes I go to sites like Jezebel just to freak myself out about just how ridiculous women are. It's entertaining in the same way watching a so-bad-it's-good movie like "The Room" is. Or maybe entertaining in the same way a train wreck is. I'm totally fascinated by them.

    It's not as if I'm not girly in my own way, either. I like looking at bride's dresses, love flowers, dig babies, enjoy the occasional round of "girl talk" and all that like most other chicks do. But when talk leaves the arena of that sort of "girly stuff" and gets into the realm of ideas -- politics, religion, social issues, etc. -- I am just blown away by the idiocy. Most guys aren't that bright either, as far as that goes, but even the less bright ones seem able to be a lot more bjective when they need to be, are more able to get past the emotional (which I don't downplay at all) when they need to and not let it affect them inordinately.

    To me, it's a wonder why there isn't an epidemic of male on female domestic violence. Women are the most ungrateful creatures on earth. They have no respect for men. None. As Camille Paglia said, we'd be living in grass huts if it weren't for men, but women act toward men as if they are completely unaware of that fact. They're selfish and have no concept of things like duty and honor. Religion used to give them all that, but it's been stripped away, and that, coupled with modern feminism, has turned women into overgrown, selfish babies who haven't outgrown the "I'm the center of the universe" stage of development.

    I soooo wish I knew more sane women who'd come over to my house and hang, drink, talk about real stuff -- interesting stuff, and whatever. And look at bride's dresses. Sigh.

    Sorry for the rant. Totally OT, I know, but it's late.

    I noticed that Cooper seemed a little too eager to press for a yes or no from Trump, and Trump seemed to sense that, being even more evasive than usual. But he did ultimately make a flat denial -- we'll see.

    Well, Kristof already had come up with a name, though even by the details he himself provided, it looks to be a very lame case indeed:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2016/10/09/opinion/sunday/donald-trump-groper-in-chief.html?_r=0

    Of course, she didn't report the supposed assault to the police, because of women's reasons. And she dated him after the supposed assault, because of women's reasons. All the trauma, you know, she got real confused.

    My own guess is that if they're going to come up with a name, the woman had better have some very convincing reason she is only now registering the complaint, otherwise it will rightly look awfully weak to normal people.

    Did you read CNN’s account of the making of the p-grab bombshell? NBC was ready to run with it TOMORROW morning, but sleazy ACCESS HOLLYWOOD somehow got itself into the position of scooping them so it came out early. Meaning, the “I’m With Her” campaign had once again colluded with the media for Hillary to drop a bomb durning the final seconds of the debate which the media would then dutifully run with for the next two weeks, all from prearranged jumping-off points, but the sleaze merchants messed all of it up for them by, you know, running their business like an actual business whose business it is to grab the most eyeballs first with the most lurid, sensational trash. Since Hollyweird has loved telling us since forever how outsiders, low-lifes, criminals, traitors. and other various forms of scum-receptacletude are really still more moral, if you think about it right, than Mr. Uptight Whitebread Suburban Bourgeois Patriarchal Authority Figure, I guess this development, which probably saved the Trump campaign, has some poetic justice.

    Milo will tear him to pieces. Plus, Anderson still cares about fairness. It will be interesting to see if he actually has any integrity. I had liked many announcers on the major networks in the past; now, I hate them all. I miss Greta. Hannity makes me feel less depressed, but he is literally, the only one. Everyone else is so fail....so obvious in the tank. It's Pravda.

    Lou Dobbs has been great over the years. Not quite unz.com material but as close as you’ll come on mainstream TV.

    Lou Dobbs was great when I was home with my babies, long ago, in the late 90's - I miss him, as does my mother, and mother-in-law; Greatest Gen and Euros. During the 9/11 years, he went into attacking PC when no one was attacking PCness. His ideas were a prototype for a candidate like Trump and others. At that point, (9/11) I was an exhausted mom with 3 boys born within 4 years, with my husband traveling/working 1/3 per/year. But we are all good, today! 25 years of good!

    However. Trump came along with his smash-mouth tonight, which is everything I have wanted. Which means, I don't care about his past. Everyone has a past. Lou Dobbs lead me, more than 20 years ago, to realize that there are multiple voices in media.

    “Note to my male friends who might not realize: Trump’s standing behind her is a bullying tactic. Abusive men do this to us all the time.”

    Joyce Carol Oates is the abusive bullying woman who portrayed a woman unable to defend herself (because dead) as a total whore, slut and idiot:

    There were disclaimers, but it was still character assassination.

    Another note: standing in front of women is a bullying tactic employed by abusive men. Abusive men stand beside women, as well. Basically, being a man within or without the vicinity of females is an abusive tactic.

    The more you know.

    As broad-beamed as Hillary is, Trump was probably just using her as a human shield.
