The Donald ducked some childishly obvious set-ups and provocations, as HRC tried to draw out the “real Trump.” But he was so cautious, trying so hard to remain polite, that he also missed some great chances for great on-topic come-backs. Is he being over-managed? I don’t trust some of his aides; who the hell is Pence to say that Gennifer Flowers will NOT be invited?
My wife came back with the zingers and counter-punches that he was too polite to use when it was obviously right time to use them.
And my wife gave much better answers on policy, in retort to the usual litany of left-wing nonsense that we’ve heard from HRC as we have heard from politicians our entire lives. So The Donald is still not a wonk, still not fleet of foot dancing through the minute details. WHO CARES. He is running for President, not chief writer of stifling regulations. HE is the one with the right ideas, the ideas proven right most recently by Reagan, and SHE is the one with the same old same old tired crap, with which Democrats and RINOs have been fundamentally transforming — sinking — America and the Constitution.
Oh, by the way, to all those who say Trump has never before been interested in the issues, and that he is flip-flopping on the issues, watch this: Oprah Winfrey Interviews Donald Trump in 1988 – YouTube. He was the same then as he is now…
And me? I can’t stand HRC’s pedantic voice, her condescending smirks, her imperious demeanor. Is she running for Queen of the Underworld, or President of the United States? It was a badly needed relief from the TV screen that the show was on at dinner time — the time to feed and water the dogs, to let them in and out of the house as they needed to go, and to throw bits of snacks at them to catch. Otherwise I would have gone nuts, and I am not really sure if I had not.
Some idiot in the media is expecting Trump to drop out of the next debates, after his experience in this one. I would not mind that at all. If God decides to punish us by letting her win, I’ll bury myself watching old movies, reading old books, and helping raise with my brand spanking new grandson.
