The debate last night was the shitshow we all knew it would be. I thought it was over the second I saw this:
She came out in a bright red pant suit. Ya know, like the devil.
But make no doubt about it – Donald Trump lost. Hillary Clinton did nothing that would be considered good. She didn’t really do anything at all. She just sat up there like a monotone robot saying the exact same speaking points that President Obama and every other democrat has been saying for the last 10 years:
- Equal pay for equal work
- Racism is bad, Trump is a racist
- Jobs are good, we need more of those
- Guns are bad, we need less of those
The difference is that when Obama says those things he really sells it to you. He tells some anecdote about a guy in Iowa he met whose small business could use a little help from the government. Something like that. He’s a really good speaker and can convince people his policies are the best policies.
Hillary Clinton has the exact same policies but she just can’t convince anyone of anything. She is your awkward grandmother, just with more skeletons in her closet. And somehow Trump didn’t capitalize on ANY of it. He could’ve pointed to documented facts that the equal pay myth is a result of personal and career choices. But he didn’t. Instead he went on rambling about Rosie O’Donnell and how tremendous all the buildings he owns are. Turtleboy could have done a better job destroying her than he did.
It’s weird because Trump came out annihilating her. Most people seem to agree that he dominated the first 20 minutes. He destroyed her on trade and the effect that NAFTA (which her husband signed off on) has had on industrial workers. She looked dumb. Then she brought up the fact that he’s a lucky sperm and it got in his head and it was all downhill from there.
Conservative columnist Ben Shapiro sums it up best:
IRS records ✓
Discrimination lawsuit ✓
Terrorist immigration ✘

Sure, Lester Holt absolutely stacked the deck against him, but Trump had no comebacks for any of these things. Birtherism? Tax records? He spent an hour defending his tax records when he could’ve just pointed out the fact that the Clinton Foundation is a gigantic bribery scandal. Discrimination lawsuit from 40 years ago that was settled? We’re living in an age where a terrorist attack happens every other week and American cities are being burned to the ground by peaceful protesters. And you’re asking about birtherism and one guy’s tax records? That’s what Turtleboy would’ve said. Not Trump though. He talked Rosie O’Donnell.
Sexism? The woman Trump is running against is married to a man who invented sexism. She helped silence victims of sexual assault at the hands of her husband in order to further her own political career. Trump forgot to mention that.
Pro-Iraq? Trump didn’t vote to go to war in Iraq because he wasn’t an elected congressman at the time. Hillary did. Trump decided not to mention that because he went on a rant about something he said to Sean Hanitty one time.
Hillary gave him layup after layup too. She willingly brought up the emails. She bragged about testifying in front of congress as an example of her stamina!! And Trump didn’t say shit.
Meanwhile Trump didn’t bring up ANY of the things that got him here in the first place. He didn’t even mention the wall!!! That’s insane. Never thought I’d see that day. He didn’t mention Benghazi, Omar Mateen, her flip-flopping on gay marriage, the war on police in this country, or the fact that we’ve had a democratic president for eight years and all of these things have happened during that time.
The bottom line is that Trump let her and Lester Holt set the agenda. Instead of going on the offensive against one of the easiest candidates in history to go on the offensive against, he stayed on the defensive and rambled on about how he’s not all of the things they accused him of being. But the question is, will it even matter? Trump has literally done everything wrong this entire campaign and all it does is make him more popular.
