Poor Donald probably expected a fair debate. Instead he walked straight into a trap as Lester Hold asked one-sided questions, and Hillary smirked throughout the 90 minutes. And why not,…she knew the questions in advance.
Anybody who was going to vote for her had their opinions reinforced. Trump made no unforced errors, – but scored no knockdowns – and landed no body blows.
Several times Lester Hold dropped the pretense of being a ‘moderator’, – and declared Trump wrong on issues, while never challenging Hillary’s version of history.
To her credit – (or her doctors’ credit), – she seemed fit, was able to stand for 90 minutes, and didn’t cough. A rather miraculous recovery…?
She got in some good zingers – “Trumped-up Trickle-Down” was one, and on her won she asserted that “Stop & Frisk had been declared unconstitutional”, – which is a wild exaggeration – even for a disbarred lawyer.
Trump failed to bring up Benghazi, – only mentioned the emails briefly, and never touched on Bill’s Bimbos…. Perhaps he didn’t want to be seen ‘as attacking a woman’ – but he let a priceless opportunity pass him by….
Throughout the evening Hillary smirked at Trump. Her attitude of superiority and entitlement seems very hard to hide, and when she realized that things were going her way, – that Trump was rattled, – her smirk became obnoxious.
If elected, she will be more obnoxious than Obama ever was.
We’ve watched Hillary smirk before – as when she was being grilled by Congress over emails and Benghazi. It is her fallback liar’s face….
The only time Clinton let slip her real agenda was on the issues of race relations and crime – when she vilified guns several times in a single paragraph. She will not support, defend or uphold our 2nd Amendment. She’ll come after out guns.
And she re-wrote history – again unchallenged either by Holt or Trump.
She declared that it was George W. Bush who had set the time-line for the Iraq pullout. She is such a practiced liar that she can do it forcefully and with conviction.
If you were a Trump supporter before tonight, you’ll have to keep the faith, – and know that Trump’s strong points may not be in debate – but in actually getting stuff done in real life – off the debate stage.
Watching tonight with other conservatives we all agreed that she ‘won the debate’ – at least in the eyes of the uninformed and the ignorant.
Trump will have to up his game – and quickly!
