The Clinton-Trump Debate

The Clinton-Trump Debate

I have been watching political campaigns since the 1940s, but I have never seen a political debate quite like the one I witnessed Monday evening, September 26, 2016.

I found it hard to watch the boorish behavior of Donald Trump as he constantly made grimacing faces and kept interrupting Hillary Clinton as she spoke during the debate. That may have worked for him in the debates with his Republican rivals in the run-up to the nomination, but it just made him look ridiculous in the debate with Clinton. 

It was almost funny to watch Trump's surrogates try to put a positive spin on his performance after the debate, but you would have to not believe what your eyes and ears told you to buy their nonsense.

I don't care what party you belong to or who you plan to vote for, but, if you are honest, you will have to agree that the little lady in red gave Trump a real  ass-whipping in that debate. And there is nobody more to blame than Donald J. Trump himself. Or maybe it was the microphone's fault, as he later claimed.
