Second presidental debate 10/9/2016 @9pm Eastern

Postby Marie » Sun Oct 09, 2016 12:43 am

Will Trump show?

If he does, some folks have suggested Secy Clinton shouldn't shake his hand; you don't know where it's been. [-(

My prediction: this is a family oriented town hall forum. The candidate who conducts himself or herself in Victorian fashion will win. (And I don't mean late Victorian -- I mean mid-Victorian!)

At 7:45 Trump arrays 3 Bill Clinton accusers and 1 Hillary accuser in a press availability. No questions from the media that I could see, just brief comments from each woman, and thanks for coming.

This is without a doubt Giuliani and Bannon's doing; Trump doesn't have the smarts to put this all together. What motivates the women most likely involves misguided patriotism. As to their statements, with the exception of Jones, who brought a civil case, all these old allegations were thoroughly investigated by TWO independent counsels during Bill Clinton's second term and found to have been without merit. They weren't ignored, they just didn't have the goods, and in this country we convict people on the evidence, not the preponderance of accusations.

If I were the University, I'd cancel tonight's event. I wouldn't want my institution identified with this scurrilous mess. In fact, cancellation of the event might be Trump's goal, when all is said and done. He knew he couldn't prevail in the town hall.

Sheshootsshescores!!! Trump's complicity in illegal Chinese steel dumping -- reported only today by Kurt Eichenwald -- picked up on immediately by Hillary! =D> =D> =D>

No flies in the Clinton campaign, they miss nothing!

BTW, I counted 72 pronounced Trumpsniffs in 90 mins. Every time he lied or was under pressure. It's his "tell."

A lot of people described Trumps behavior tonight as stalkery. I just thought he was trying to upstage her. But looking at these stills, it is kinda creepy...

When he wasn't standing behind her, he spent the rest of the time wandering around on stage aimlessly. I wasn't sure if this was a strategy to distract the audience from what she was talking about, or whether he just couldn't sit still. Image

I don't like that penguin outfit HRC was wearing -- stolen from Ruth Bader Ginsberg's closet? Hillary's not a Supreme Court justice yet. (Must wait until 2025 for that! :-)

Why did Trump make a sour remark when Hillary complimented his kids? :?

Anyway, he's right when he says she's determined and doesn't give up. I hope tonight taught him that once and for all.

Another Q: A rubber match is a tie breaker; so when Matthews asked Kellyanne if there would be a rubber match, which of the first two debates was he implying Trump had won? :-s

From Nate Silver fivethirtyeight -- number and type of interruptions during the debate:

Image

And btw,
Trump got more time to speak than Clinton — and still complained to the moderators
Trump accused the moderators of working against him. The numbers don’t back him up.

This segment of tonight's "All In With Chris Hayes" is important. It explains how Trump's behavior towards Hillary Clinton -- esp. at last night's debate -- has been perceived by a great many women, ensuring that he will never be president.

I said the same thing about Hillary complimenting his kids, and my friend had a brilliant response. The narcissist in him didn't like it because it wasn't a direct compliment about HIM, but was instead complimenting his kids! :lol:

If that's the reason he was mad, then maybe he does recognize diplomacy when he hears it! :-D
