HOW TO AVOID IMMIGRATION, TERRORISM AND HEALTH CARE FOR 90 MINUTES

September 28, 2016



At least we know Trump wasn’t lying when he said he didn't practice for the debate.

Based on the behavior of trained, professional journalists, I gather I'm not supposed to say what I really thought of the debate, but to cheer like a pom-pom girl for my candidate.

But the truth is, I -- along with my Trump-supporting friends -- thought it was a draw: Trump won the first half, and Hillary won the second half. Since most people stopped paying attention after the first 30 minutes, that's a win for Trump.

Hillary supporters, or "the media," had reason to be happy: She looked healthy! She probably could have kept reciting her snarky little talking points for another hour.

In fact, it was the best I've ever seen Hillary. She avoided that honking thing she does, smiled a lot -- a little too much, actually (maybe ease up on the pep pills next time) -- and, as the entire media has gleefully reported, she managed to "bait" Trump.

Note to the Trump campaign: While it may seem studly that Hillary's best performance versus Trump's worst ends in a draw, on Nov. 9, no one wants to say: We almost won -- and our guy didn't prepare!

The media's excitement over Hillary successfully "baiting" Trump is revealing -- of the media, of what this election is really about, and of what Trump needs to do now.

The definition of Trump "taking the bait" was getting him to talk about himself, not about issues. This from a media that claim to be aching for "policy specifics."

Hillary -- with assists from the moderator -- "baited" Trump on how rich he is, the loan from his father, a lawsuit in 1972, the birther claims, who he said what to about the Iraq War from 2001 to 2003, and so on.

For the media, their gal was winning whenever precious minutes of a 90-minute debate were spent rehashing allegations about Trump. Ha ha! We prevented Trump from talking about issues that matter to the American people! That was scored as a "win."


Nothing illustrates more clearly that this election is about the people versus the elites than the fact that the media run from Trump's issues like Dracula from the sun.

Trump wins whenever he talks about issues; he loses whenever he talks about himself.

Trump was winning when he talked about the heinous trade deals that have shipped jobs abroad and immiserated millions of Americans -- which Hillary supports. He was winning when he talked about bringing order and safety to black neighborhoods overrun with crime; Hillary’s with the criminals. He was winning when he talked about rebuilding our inner cities, instead of saying, "Vote for me!" then, "See you in four years!" -- as Hillary does.

Unlike the media, ordinary people don't care about Trump's taxes or net worth or the things he said as an entertainer. Trump will be dead and gone in 30 years. But whether America continues to exist or becomes some dystopian blend of Guatemala and Afghanistan will be determined by this election.

It's almost impossible not to correct a lie, especially about yourself, which is why Hillary and Lester Holt's "baiting" strategy was to make outrageous claims about Trump.

Hillary, for example, criticized Trump for not releasing his tax returns, saying, "maybe ... he's paid nothing in federal taxes."

This is exactly what Sen. Harry Reid stated as hard fact about Romney in 2012 -- on the Senate floor, so he couldn't be sued. After the election was over, Reid was asked about this obvious falsehood. He laughed it off and said, "Romney didn't win, did he?"

This is the game they play.

Trump has got to learn to ignore it. The voters have. They don't care about his taxes. They want jobs, they want a wall and they'd like fewer Muslims showing up, collecting welfare, then killing Americans.

Trump doesn't have to do formal debate practice, standing at a podium, facing off against a shorty in pantsuit. But he does need Pavlovian training to stop responding to irrelevancies.

This isn't about him! It's about a movement of the people to take back their government from an arrogant plutocracy.

From now until the next debate, every single person who works for Trump should personally insult him several times a day.

Good morning, sir -- your business is a total fraud.

Here are those trade stats you wanted -- oh and you lied about opposing the war in Iraq.

The Cincinnati airport needs a tail number -- why did you "fat-shame" that poor girl?

If he starts to respond, they should say, "No one cares, sir. Tell me how you're going to stop Mexican drugs from pouring across our border."

The proof that voters don't care about the personal attacks on Trump is that, even after his lazy and self-indulgent debate performance, he won nearly every online poll.

Evidently, the American people have sized up the candidates and decided they want Trump. But there's just one last formality: He needs to pass some minimum threshold, a basic job requirement – like proving he has a drivers license.

Everybody agrees he’s got the job. It's too late for Hillary to be sucking up to the hiring committee, reminding them, but I took driver's ed seven times -- yes, there were mistakes, but I was grilled for 11 hours about that vehicular homicide. Also, the Russians hacked my GPS.

Trump showed up at the debate with his driver's license. That's all anyone needed to see.

"From now until the next debate, every single person who works for Trump should personally insult him several times a day."

You crack me up. For me the real take-away was the last few minutes when Hillary shot off that degenerate (but so rehearsed) tirade on Trump and women... the obvious purpose, her psychotic psychologist handlers assured her, was to let the debate end with him angry and yelling. But he --- unexpectedly --- 'squandered' this opportunity to deliver his own tirade on Bill's love life, (stated later) because, Chelsea. Function in disaster, finish in style.

Trump only lost at times IMO because he felt the need to verbally press back *and* take the floor. There were several times where he interjected, stopped Hillary from speaking and then... faded... out... because (specifically) he did not mentally build a whole paragraph in his mind before he interjected.

When responding to a Clinton howler he should have said "WRONG!" or "WHOA THERE!" --- then remained silent. And for each "WRONG!" delivered a complete rebuttal when he had the floor again.

Trump really needs to 'queue' his interruptions better and use the time to build a real response. IF he cannot multitask well enough to assemble a good rebuttal and listen closely at the same time (I know I couldn't)... he should STOP LISTENING just long enough to get the rebuttal shaped in his mind, ready to deliver. A rebuttal to a serious allegation is *that* important, even if it means he misses something she says.

Thoughts about the 1st debate:

1) Watching the debate, I was struck by the ease in which the lies and the misdirection came so naturally to Hillary Clinton. I finally understand how she has avoided prosecution all these years

2) She is a good speaker and debater, but so what? 0'bama was a good speaker and debater too, yet he was a horrible president.

3) Why is it so important for debate to be one of the "must-haves" in a presidents skill set? Do we really want a presidents every decision to be open to debate, or do we want a leader whose direction is common sense beyond debate?

4) it doesn't matter that Trump didn't pounce on the many opportunities to wreck Hillary because we all heard those quips and questions in our heads, screaming at the TV in silent frustration. We all know what could have, would have, should have been said, and they all disqualify Hillary as a credible or viable president.

Ann Said "All he needed to do is show up with his driver license that is all anyone needs to see". Obama showed his driver license and you demand a birth certificate. As always, you accuse the left of a double standard and overlook your double standard.

I don't think anybody ask to see Hillary's birth certificate. Do you not see the difference?

Didn't I just see something somewhere that said Obama claimed to be born in Kenya in his book ? And also some kerffuffle about his social security --or multiple social security numbers were either fake or not from Hawaii or were from Connecticut ? I admit I have not followed the birther stuff too much . If anyone is bored enough they can enlighten me .

you seemed enlightened enough already. All of what you said is just about the jest of it. But you left out the part about him being gay. Now that gets interesting..... :laugh:

When you do, just remember what Ann said about Harry Reid.

Soooo...when your "wittle snowflakes" complain that the Republicans "lied," just laugh it off and say, "Hillary didn't win, did she?"

It is my understanding that this is the biggest issue. There is no doubt proven facts, but if it was to officially come to light, then there would be an incredible amount of people that would need to be hanged.
I'm quite sure in the future, this will be a very good story, prolly' a movie, and all of it too late to do anything about.
